If you came over to Hank & Lucy as a reader of ADF, you know that I am seriously into summer. As I was mentioning yesterday, this summer's adventures have taken a little bit of a back burner to the baby. (I will expand on that here, since this *is* the baby blog...) We always planned on being the kind to really get out and about with the little one. But I have to admit, the whole having a new born thing was a *little* bit harder than we expected, my body took a *little* longer than I would have hoped to recover, and our bank account was a *little* too drained by the maternity leave.... Not to mention the dreaded car seat. And so, we have spent a lot of time at home. Which is fine. The little guy really shines when we are at home. When we are out and about he is hard to engage, he is so distracted. And so I am just trying to stay present and know that he will only be this little for so long. Besides, in my mind, we still were going to have some adventures this summer. I just have yet to plan them.
Hello, summer will be over before we know it.
And a comment from Shayna motivated me to finally do something about it.
And so we are testing the waters, a quick one night camping trip on Sunday with friends, only an hour away.
I am so excited.
I think it will be pretty easy with Henry. We already sleep share, so he will just share out air mattress. Besides keeping him fed (easy), and well shaded, and warm at night, he doesn't need much else.
But if you have any good tips for camping with baby, I would love to hear them!
