We decided to do some spring camping in the trailer before summer hit and the campgrounds got too full. This was actually the FIRST time we went camping in the trailer WITHOUT motorcycles in tow. Last summer, we took the trailer up to San Francisco to visit Zachary in the NICU but that hardly counts. He wasn’t with us then and the RV park was more like a parking lot, rather than a nature experience.

My ideal camping location is either in the woods or at the beach. Serrano Campground in Big Bear was great! It had just the right amount of seclusion and nature. Plus, the full hook ups were fantastic! Hello, warm shower. :))

The girls loved exploring, getting dirty, riding their bikes, seeing forest critters, learning new survival skills from dad and tending to the fire.

Zach is a great little traveler, too. He enjoyed the cool breezes on his face, a bike ride and just being with his family.

There were so many pictures and memories I wanted to capture from this trip… Stay tuned for part 2!
