Fairies, clams and Spencer Spit

June 09 146 So I did bring three times as much food and clothes than we actually used but as long as it fits in the car what’s the risk right?  I’m definitely going to cull the menu and food list and amend the kit list in my camping box – but what has left the biggest impression on me is how great it is to spend focused, time together as a family and - as much as I obsess about it - the food was the least of my concerns on the weekend.

If you ask the four year old toasting marshmallows was the highlight of the trip.  For me it was the fairy house.  I think my husband would say the clams. The three year old? Maybe the piece of driftwood he adopted as his ‘baby’.

So much to elaborate on, I can’t wait to tell you all about our adventure.  For now though a couple of pictures will have to do. 


  1. hi Kass -

    if you ever have a chance, would you mind sharing your packing list? Always curious to compare and edit mine. Just as an fyi, there is a pretty good one for family car camping on the GORP site.

    thanks - looking forward to reading more about your camping adventures!


  2. Amalgamating my clothes, food, and gear lists is definately one of my to-do's. I'll post it soon! I'll check out GORP too...thanks for the tip!

  3. Also - I found this book at REI and my kids (age 6, 3) have been enjoying it -- "Camp Out: from the Backyard to the Backwoods. The ultimate kids' guide" by Lynn Brunelle.
