We went camping in mid-October at Dino Valley. I had a campsite reserved and had planned to take the big kids with our normal camping buddies. However, they got sick at the last minute and couldn’t go. We debated whether to go by ourselves or cancel. Finally we decided to take the entire family so Henry could go camping for his first time. We took two cars just in case we had to abandon ship in the middle of the night but ended up not needing to.
The boys napped on the way down there.
We set up our mega tent. I bought this from someone at work like 4 years ago for $30 but have never used it.
It had plenty of room
After dinner, we went for a hike
After hiking, we sat by our lantern for a little while before deciding to go to bed.
All the kids went to sleep pretty easily and slept all night. I had a hard time gong to sleep. I’m finding that sleeping on the ground is tougher than it used to be. It didn’t help that a couple of dogs next to us were barking until midnight.
The next morning we had oatmeal for breakfast to warm up.
Then we broke camp and went for another hike before heading back to Fort Worth. Like always, we had a great time and will be planning another trip in the spring.
