We're Going Camping!

Tuesday, July 12, 2016

On Thursday, the girls and I are leaving for a 3 day camping trip at Knoebels Camping Resort in Pennsylvania.

Yeah, I know. I just said I was going camping!!!! Ahhh, I can hardly believe it myself. It's been something that we've wanted to do for quite a while. In fact, it's on my summer bucket list. I'm certain I'll never go again, but I have to do it at least once.

Just a little background...A camper I am not. I haven't camped since I was a child. I was probably 7 or 8 years old. I was carefree and didn't care if I had a hair dryer, curling rod, or perfect lighting for makeup.

These days things have changed. Although my sense of adventure remains, I have a reliance on everyday luxuries, which I will have to set aside in the name of communing with nature. We are staying in a camper not a cottage or a cabin. We do have electrical hookups at our site, but let's be serious. Am I really going to dry and style my hair? Not likely. So, it's au naturel for a few days.

Knoebels also has an amusement park with plenty of food options, and wait for it...there's a Starbucks!!! I won't be entirely roughing it. I won't have to hop in a canoe and paddle to the middle of a lake to catch my dinner, but the whole aspect of not staying in a plush hotel room will be foreign to me.

I'll be unplugging from my laptop for a few days, but you can find me on Snapchat and Instagram (both @piecesofamom) to follow along with the camping shenanigans!
