We went on our first camping trip as a family this year, with my parents and siblings as our neighbours! I love the outdoors and camping, and I was finally able to convince my husband to go this time around. The trip was great except for the very cold nights, with the kids sleeping in their snow suits and piled on blankets! We went so early in the season because we wanted to squeeze it in before Ramadan. The beach was beautiful, and we were able to visit it one day to watch the sunset. There were some amazing driftwood teepees there, and my sister made one of her own as well. We also rented a paddle boat, and with the littlest one in my baby sling, the middle one in my husband’s lap, and the eldest in her own seat, we paddled down the river. I think I liked that the best. I would love to make camping a yearly tradition, but definitely plan to go during a warmer time of the year inshaAllah :).
