Camping with Baby

This year was a special year for our family: I had a baby girl. Olivia was only 3-months old when we took her camping for the first time. As you can see she was a happy camper and we were really enjoying her company. See all her firsts: first campfire, first time on the beach and first dip in the lake.

Camping with a baby can be fun and easy. As we found out, contrary to popular opinion, you don't really need much extra equipment just for the baby. For more tips see my blog post on camping with a baby.
