To truly appreciate your life sometimes you have to get away from it.  It's important to pack up the family and everything you need for a few days and just get away.

There's no better way to do that than camping.  You take the bare essentials to get by and leave the phone and other devices alone to really unplug.

There's nothing like setting up camp, putting a few chairs around a fire and letting the conversation take you for a ride.  (a few cold pops don't hurt either)

Let me correct my own headline.  My first time camping didn’t “suck”.  Camping was actually a blast!  Once we were there it was great.  Getting there and leaving was a GIANT pain in the ass. 
Here’s what I’d do differently:
