This past weekend made me realize that you don't need much to go camping with the little ones.
Hubby managed to fit all our camping gear into our car. (He's the Master Camper, for sure!) We had to make do with the small tent, but it was more than enough for Little Miss. She was extremely happy to share our two camping mattresses. (We have the sore backs, but luckily it was only for two nights!)
We went camping with her Voortrekker team of little girls with their parents. It was the best of times for them.
What little girls want while camping:
- Friends to play with.
- A bicycle.
- A fishing rod.
- A swimming pool.
- Sharing food and drinks.
Note to self: food is not high priority on their lists! They are happy with a sip cool drink here and there and a bite of negotiated anything before running of again!
- AN OPTIONAL BONUS: a water slide!
A Bush-veld storm could not even dampen the spirits. The little girls just went on swimming in the undercover warm swimming pool.
AND: Mom got her sunsets and a sunrise!

I am also sure that little boys want the same as well, because the little brothers camping with us, had just as much fun!
