Things I learned While Camping | Amy Clary

Things I learned While Camping

I spent from Thursday afternoon until Tuesday morning in Mackinaw City, MI camping with my family. We had a lot of fun while we were there. Here are some things I learned or observed while we were camping.
  • Camping while pregnant with two kids is A LOT harder than just staying home.
  • I'll never get over how beautiful Northern Michigan is.
  • Doing a self-initiated fudge tour and taste comparison on Mackinac Island was SO worth it. My favorite fudge on the island was May's Fudge {and I brought some home}.
  • Riding on the top level of the ferry is way more fun then the covered area below. Especially if you get drenched from the water spraying up from the lake. {Let loose and laugh a little.}
  • Even if there may be scary moose and bears in the woods, it's worth braving the hike to see Tahquamenon Falls.{And totally harmless, might I add.}
  • People with straight hair will never fully appreciate or understand the process of getting curly hair ready for the day. {I got a lot of strange looks from using my blow dryer with a crazy, huge diffuser on it.}
  • I may be too girly for "roughing it". My chipped and rough nails were making me crazy all weekend.
  • I don't like it when people step on my "Mommy toes" with their opinions. I don't like it one bit.
  • When it rains while camping, there's no such thing as a camper/trailer big enough to keep kids busy without getting hurt.
  • If you have T-Mobile, they're service is worthless in Northern Michigan. I had an entire weekend of no reception and roaming on AT&T's towers.
  • There's nothing like a shovel, a bucket, and a pile of dirt to keep little ones entertained for hours.
  • I wish people locked doors on single use bathrooms. {The last thing I want to see is a woman I don't know sitting on a toilet, thank you.}
  • Souvenir shops in tourist towns stink.
  • Most campers on the campground are the kindest people I've ever met.
  • I love fall weather but the breeze from the lake made fall feel like winter.
  • Camping equals family and family equals joy...exhausted or not.
