For the first time ever we went camping for 3 days with all 11 of us together this summer - nine children between the ages of 14 and 1 - and we had a great time. *smile!* We also had my parents and my 3 siblings and their families with us, making a group of 26 total (16 kids, and 10 adults). Using three adjacent camp sites. I didn't know how it would go for our littlest 4 Shupes (ages 3, 2, 1, 1), and was honestly prepared to retreat home (35 minute drive) with the 4 youngest kids if everything fell apart *chuckle*, but with on purpose planning and working together as a family they did great! And we have so many wonderful memories to enjoy, to laugh about, to remember together...I wouldn't trade it for the world. *smile*
