and camping we went!

As previously stated my version of camping doesn't always mesh with other peoples!

I am happy with that just the way it is, we camped in our 35 ft trailer that had a TV, microwave, shower and separate bedroom in the back.  Thankfully this is my parents trailer and they so graciously allow us to use it whenever they aren't! 

I stated those features because those are not features I grew up with, yes we had a trailer that allowed us to not sleep on the ground and we could eat indoors but that was it.  It wasn't fancy but it was fantastic!!!

These upgrades are a perk as was the clever thinking of my mother to take her old single use Keireg and leave it in the trailer!!!! 

So we packed up Friday and heading west for a little camping adventure at what I must admit is the most kid friendly obsessed campground I have ever been to.  Jellystone Park in Woodstock, NB.

We arrived for Halloween weekend and it was a huge success! 

Our first night it was just our little family of 4....we had fun at the water slides, the parks and of course a campfire!  Saturday arrived and so did our guests. 

What do you do when you have a huge trailer, invite friends!  So we invited our friends to join us in the chaos of camping with two 5 and almost 5 year olds, and 2 two year olds and 4 adults in one trailer!!!!

I can see you thinking, wow, that's a lot of people in one trailer and the potential for meltdown and trouble is high.  We all made it through wonderfully!!

We had a great time!

We decorated our campsite!!  It was Halloween of course!!

Ate Cheesie's!!

Drink beer!!  (they look happy and it was best to keep them happy :)

And then dressed up like the Flintstones!!!

Knowing it was going to be a hot day for trick or treating in August and knowing our costumes are made for October in New Brunswick I made some August appropriate costumes!!!

Everyone feeling cooler in a dress!!!  I saw an adorable post on pinterest of Wilma and Fred and then realized we had the perfect kids for the whole team!  Fabric shopping I went and costumes were made!  The girls mother was in charge of hair accessories and necklaces as that's not really my world!!

It turned out great (even though Rhys refuses to smile), they had fun, they were cool and the parents all thought they looked great.  (the kids, including our own, didn't really know who they were!!)

Here's a little mash up of the cuteness!!

Also included in the camping adventure was:

Riding in the back of the truck!

water slides

mini golf

hayride with Yogi and Cindy Bear

Campfire and smores!!!!

And of course a morning playdate in bed!!

It was a really fun time and we all made out so good that we have plans for another team camping adventure for next year!!!

I hope everyone had a great weekend!!
