That time we went on a 22 hour camping trip.

A couple weekends ago we needed to take our RV to a repair shop to get some exhaust and gas tank issues fixed. Chris and I had originally planned on making a weekend camping trip out of it as part of our anniversary celebration but then the bus had some serious issues a few days before and we thought it would be best to just drop it at the shop (if we could even make it that far) and then drive home. It was set to be the first night that both of us were away from Na since she was born and I was teetering over the edge of crazytown with my level of nervousness. (Ah, and so is the life of a very relaxed person in every aspect other than parenting...;)

So we left in the morning with the intention of making the two hour drive, dropping the bus then turning around and coming home. My sister and her friend were following us in their car so they could give us a ride home and my parents were staying at the house with Na. About an hour into our drive things were going well and we just thought, why not, lets just go camping. The bus only stalled one time on the highway so apparently that was all the confidence we needed ;) 

We rolled into our camp spot with no supplies and for the next 22 hours, we had an absolute blast! Sure we had no food and unbrushed teeth and underwear hanging from the awning to dry but it was pretty damn awesome nevertheless. We ate dinner at this amazing restaurant in the dreamiest little town and raced back to the beach to dance at sunset. We hiked through what I'm sure was the real life version of Fern Gully and jumped off the dunes. It was a blast. And so, some phone pics to document our little adventure...

    1. Chris is usually the designated RV driver but we were stopped in traffic for a while so I figured it was as good a time as any to give it a go... I totally felt like a school bus driver, it was rad haha!
