Our First Family Camping Trip

Hey, hey, hey!  Look who is back!  It’s my annual summer break from blogging, which is never intentional but seemingly always happens.  Summer is the absolute BEST time of year, but it is nonstop and busy and I never find myself sitting inside editing pictures or stringing together cohesive thoughts. I’ve missed you guys!

We’ve been up to a lot this summer already, and while I’m not going to show you everything – I’d love to share some highlights. Starting with – our first family camping trip! After years of talking about it, we finally did it.  The boys and I surprised Casey with a camping trip with our friends over Father’s Day weekend last month.

We planned it super last minute and totally lucked out with an oceanfront campsite at Ft. Flagler State Park (all thanks to my amazing friend, Nicki, who took care of the logistics).  We headed out first thing Saturday morning for a whole day of camping fun!

The site was amazing – it was RIGHT on the beach – about 20 yards away from the sand.  It had electrical hookups, a nearby bathroom, a small kids’ playground, and beautiful beachfront to explore.
