Coming Soon to a blog near you: Car Camping @ Mt Rainier

posted by Melissa
Getting ready for Mt. Rainier.  We are leaving tomorrow morning.  3 adults, 5 kids.

The plan is to leave by 8am.  Drive there and set up camp.  Then get in as much of a hike as we can, given that we will have the most "wished she were pampered and in a hotel at all times" 6 year old you have ever met.

I'd rather be shopping at Nordstrom, and staying at a hotel!
I don't know where she gets that from.

We are then going to camp, eat s'mores, hopefully sleep, and wake up for a new hike the next day.

Chances are we can get a glimpse of the largest glacier in the lower 48 states!

Wish us luck!

More to tell about the actual experience, it could be a good one.  You might want to check back in.

PS....I hear there are bears around there.  crap.

Actually tallulah gets that from her grandmother Dianne. Camping under the covers in my own house isn't all that much fun!! Have a good time. It will be a great experience for kids.

Well, Dianne, she whined all night long. And not much sleep was had in our tent! At least we are home again tonight :)
