I’m one of those SUPER rare Florida residents who is ACTUALLY Florida-born. Born and raised!
Even with being here for 30+ years, there were some things I had NEVER done (crazy, right?!).
So, I made a bucket list 😉
And this year, we’ve crossed quite a few off the list.
#1 Manatee Viewing Center
One of the things I didn’t touch on too much in my last post about Camping with Kids was food
And let’s face it…
Toddlers NEED food…
They get HANGRY…
So, here’s what we packed for our weekend trip (we had a refrigerator, also):
We just got back from a weekend camping (Ok, GLAMping) trip.
We stayed in a cabin.
But there were still some things we needed to pack and prepare for bringing along two toddlers.
I wanted to stay in/ near Crystal River, so we could see the manatees.
I went to the dollar store and bought little ribbon dancers (remember those?!)
And glow stick necklaces and bracelets
We brought shovels (which didn’t get used)
And fishing poles. Which definitely got used.
This past week, my husband turned 33. It’s not a big milestone birthday but I still wanted to do something for it. So, I planned a camping party, since we are going camping next weekend!
For ideas, I scoured Pinterest and made my own Camping Party board there.
We made this sign from scrap wood laying around in the garage. I accidentally spelled our name wrong! LOL I fixed it the day of the party.
