What fun we had at DeSoto State Park and Little River Canyon. We will need to go back! Our first real camping experience was a treat. The girls made friends in the camp ground (is anyone surprised by that?), so they had a blast having “free time” to explore the camp ground. It was super cold at night (38*), and with the wind howling up the side of the mountain, we stayed cold all night.
The girls both have tents, and we have talked about camping for quite a while. We never had the time to do it though. Before the fall got too crazy, there was a cold snap that hit our area. We decided to try out camping in the backyard. I wasn’t sure how they would do, especially since they insisted on sleeping in separate tents. Naturally, my fears were not founded and they did great. They did get cold during the night, and were up at about 6am the next morning, but otherwise, they loved it. I think it’s safe for us to venture outside of our yard next time.
