"kamping" trip before they went back to school; you know, something they could look forward to. Actually, my younger son could care less. With my oldest son, however, the plan worked.
Our first trip of the year will be to the beautiful Mendocino coast that will include a visit to the Point Arena Lighthouse. It's only for the weekend, but I think it will be a great start to 2012. Part of the fun of this four-hour trip each way will include riding in my husband's 1973 VW Bug while stuffing as little of our "kamping krap" as possible into it. Livin' large, baby, livin' large. I promise a full update on Monday.
