You can't choose your family, but you can choose how much time you spend with them. And we sure spend a lot of time with ours.
What started as just a camping weekend that we invited a few extra people to, turned into a full out cousins camping weekend. 6 out of 10 of us were there with our families. And it was awesome. And it might have to become an annual thing.
We stayed at the Rockwood Conservation area, which is close to home. There is so much to do there that keeps everyone entertained, or you can just hang out on your site too. Plus, camping with family is awesome because I get free babysitting for my kids.
We were only told once to cut it out with the loud and inappropriate campfire talk...oops!
