Camping. It seems like everyone is talking about their upcoming trips and plans for the summer. Growing up I didn’t camp much so it isn’t my favorite thing. Josh on the other hand, went camping A LOT. His mom loves the smell of campfire. Me? Not so much. He has turned our kids into fans of camping and we have a trip scheduled for next month. Wish me luck!
Last time we went, I scoured the internet for recipes, printables and more. I thought you might enjoy some of the favorites that I found. As always, please click on the link to go directly to the source.
If you do some of these hacks before you leave, you will save your sanity. They are meant to make life a little easier while being away from home.
