I know! I must be craaazzzyyy! But I did it. I went camping with my 8 month old son and we had a really great time!
I have to say camping with friends makes it so that I was not carrying him all weekend and he had LOTS of kids and people to play with. Though I was always close at hand - he is still making strange, as he should be - he likes to only get passed to two people and when he's tired, he only likes to meet three people if I'm not in sight. Then the fourth gets the extended lower lip and the fifth lucky person gets the full on cry!
I am lucky that I'm an outdoor person and my little guy has always LOVED the outdoors! (Nothing stops the teething cries like a trip out of doors)
Well, I'm off to wash up from camping and put stuff away! God, moving 'house' for even a weekend is alot of work!!
