We booked it for six people - four Finnish friends + the two of us.
But now that we are just days away it has become a boys-only camping trip.
Not because the girls can't handle it. But our goddaughter, a real trooper, might keep the whole campground up at night if she were to decide that sleeping in a tent is not her thing.
Yesterday we had a trial run.
To get the 3-year old excited.
To make sure we had all the tent poles.
So midday, in the blazing heat (to replicate the 97-degree weather expected this weekend), we laid a ground cover, shoved in poles, hammered spikes, erected the big tent and ate some dirt.
Good time was had by all.
Hope the actual camping goes just as well!

|Our goddaughter assisted by bringing over poles.|
|And taste testing our soil.|
|Sleeping bags, check. Flashlights, check. Just need his teddy bear.|
|One is a little young for camping,|
perhaps next year when she is two!
