It was Memorial Weekend a few years ago, and due to my lack of planning we couldn’t go camping. As this news would be seriously disappointing to my boys, we determined to continue the camping excursion, even though every campsite in a tri-state area was booked.
We simply moved our adventure to KOA Addisland. Yep, we’ve all done it; camping in the backyard, that is. This would be my boy’s first experience.
Hot dogs and smores over an open fire, a six-man tent pitched in record time (3.5 hours… I didn’t say which record), and a complete lack of bathrooms. Oh, we had them, but we made the boys go outside to increase the authenticity.
Never should have started that… they’d rather ‘water the lawn’ than all the other civilized options to this day.
