This past weekend we went camping...in a tent...with 2 children 2 and under. Yikes. We packed up the car and headed to Wisconsin for a fun filled weekend in the great outdoors. We swam, we ate, we played in the sand and dirt, we sat around the campfire, we laughed, we played and we ate some more. Most importantly we spent time as a family with no phones, no internet and no tv's. It was just us, a few friends and nature (and a campground full of other families all doing the same thing). Elijah was a champ, Malachi, on the other hand, not so much. He was a beast. Anytime we take him out of his comfortable environment for more than 15 hours he morphs into a crying, hitting, hair pulling, screaming mess. Don't get me wrong, there were moments when he was his happy self and we loved those times. He didn't sleep well at night and ended up sleeping on the air matress with us, rather than in the pack n play. Needles to say the lack of sleep for all of us put us all in rare form. I think we will wait until next year to try again!
