Christmas, a Time of Joy
Spent fun times with my kids over the weekend and here is our collage of…
One thing we did not get to do this past Summer that my family has wanted to be able to do is stay a weekend somewhere, preferably camping out so maybe we can have our pug with us. I don’t like the idea of trying to find a place to put Jenny the pug up nor do I have anyone who can house sit the doggy. I know our kitty would be fine, as we can leave him ample water and food, but the dog? Well dogs are not self sufficient in ways of the kitty. With that being said, I joked often about renting a camper van type thing this past Summer so we could get out and enjoy the great outdoors. There is a website I use as a resource for campground sites all over the New England area but so far I prefer to stick with the York Beach, Maine area.
How much fun would it be for us to be able to enjoy this nice view for a full weekend? I think it would be great to rent a camper van and spend a weekend in complete loss of electronics, nothing but camping out, beach visits and watching the moon rise over the ocean. I would so love such a thing, but that didn’t happen. I was doing a bit of research into hiring a campervan for a family road trip and found this campervan hire site to be a great resource.
This school year we will be saving money while paying off behind due bills so that we can take a little family trip over the Summer of 2014. Maybe we can spend a whole week away somewhere, now that would be totally awesome. I will have to keep my eyes out on campervan rentals so that I know the current rental price. It makes sense, as a family, to rent a campervan, because in all reality it isn’t something we would have space to place on our lot at this time, with half an acre of land we really want to ensure our children can enjoy the full cleared lot.
The best campervan for our family would be something that had ample space because when we all get together there are seven of us total, two adults and five children between the ages of 13 and 5. Taking a family vacation, via a campervan, would mean that board games would be played, electronics would go out the window and we would be forced to play games together and get to know each other more in our blended family life. While I know how I would want to travel and sleep, one thing I try to do is read more Travel Blogs to find great destinations aside from my normal ones I usually see each year. Taking a campervan rental for a family vacation would be a wonderful way to build family togetherness and strength, at least that is my opinion on the matter.
Does your family go camping each year? How does your family enjoy that?
