A few weeks ago we braved camping with the kiddos! Afterwards we decided that 1. we are day campers...you know, the ones that stay all day, hang out, do tinfoil dinner and smores and then go home to sleep in our own beds. 2. Camping is really for the older kids like ages 4-15years old. 3. The sleeping is the worst part.
I'm honestly not high maintenance at all when it comes to camping. The dirt, communal showers, and nasty bathrooms really don't bother me. The only thing that does is not sleeping well! I just don't function the next day. If' I had a super nice mattress pad I think I would be fine.
But I'm pretty sure beach camping it where it's at. We went to San Elijo State Beach which is in one of our favorite towns Encinitas. We were steps away from the beach and the surf was so fun! Oh and they have the best food there! You can pretty much walk everywhere from the campsite so that is a huge plus with kids!

Quite possibly MY FAVORITE DONUT!
Which is saying a lot because I'm kind of a donut connoisseur.

It's kind of amazing and we got them hot and fresh that morning :)
