My family and I went camping during the summer. We brought a big tent. It was large enough for our whole family. We slept in sleeping bags. My mom packed extra blankets just in case it wasn't warm enough at night. We had a blast! We went swimming in the lake. My mom was worried the water would not be warm enough, but it was the perfect temperature. One day we had to look for branches because my dad did not pack enough firewood for the campfire. It was fun searching for wood sticks and branches. We turned it into a family game. I wasn't old enough to wander around alone, so my mom searched with me. There was also a zip-line close by. Unfortunately, I was not tall enough to ride on it. There was a height restriction. We ate really well too. My mom packed enough food for an army. There was plenty to eat. We roasted hot dogs and marshmallows over the campfire. At night, my brother played music on his guitar. We all sang and danced together. After a few days, it was time to leave. There wasn't enough time to do everything. My dad promised to bring us back here next year. I wish we could bring our dog too. But there is not enough space in the car for him. We are going to make camping an annual family tradition. We just need a bigger car.
