About a month ago, we purchased a used pop up camper. Jason grew up camping in a pop up with his family and even traveled around the country with this mode of “motel”. I did not. It took me a while to warm up to the idea.
We planned a trip for this week from Sunday through Thursday to Point Beach State Park which is near Two Rivers, Wisconsin. This was our second trip. Our first being a short getaway at a nearby RV park.
Here is our camper all set up. We seem to have tackled most of the logistical issues with storage and organization.
This park is in a very woodsy area.
This is just a very pretty photo of Ella when she and Jason went out to get something.
The bonus is that we were right next to a beach on Lake Michigan.
The water was gorgeously clear and pretty shallow for quite a long distance out from the shore.
It was not crowded at all, but also not too hard to find a friend to play with.
Fun for all ages!
Cooking is always an experience. Here the kids make banana boats. (not the ice cream variety)
Lots of time to play together. I am soaking up the time that I can still pick up my children to play with them.
The kids seemed to sleep really well. Us, well some nights were better than others.
Though I can be a little neurotic when it comes to dirt, public showers and other issues while camping, I think we had a pretty nice time. It was good for us.
In other news… I go in for a pre-op appointment with my surgeon today and to get a blood test. I will be having a partial thyroidectomy on Monday morning and staying overnight at the hospital until Tuesday.
