I am so excited for this trip, even if we are camping. I purchased a HUGE air mattress for myself and smaller ones for the kids and a queen size sleeping bag for me. I may actually like camping again! Woohoo!!!

So does that mean no tent trailer?

No tent trailer! I'm actually going to use the family size tent I have and have only used once in 10 years. I guess I should probably set it up and make sure it's going to work! It will be the hilton of tent set ups once I get the beds and everything in there! I'm almost excited!
