Camping with Kids in California at Samuel P. Taylor SP and Swimming in Bolinas

On the last few days of summer, we decided we just had to get in one last camping trip... and see if we could camp with a three month old and a two and a half year old ;) We started the journey with a picnic by the water with Nana and Babo. After a delicious apple-almond cake, Juni spent hours "fishing" in the river with a piece of twine dangling on a stick. As dusk approached, we headed off to find our campground, and our camping buddy, Alex. As we set up our site, we marveled at the redwoods towering over us and the still peace they held. Would the silence be shattered with the wails of an infant? How quickly could we pack up the tent and make it back home?

Turned out, Wilder LOVED camping! He especially LOVED the fire. Couldn't stop gazing into it. The night went beautifully. Then, after a hearty breakfast of strong coffee and oats, we headed to Bolinas for a dip in the ocean and a wild pelican feeding show! There must have been a huge fish run because the birds were having a food convention, diving in and taking off. Slurp!

We did it! Camped with an infant AND a toddler! It was the best! YAY!

A big thanks to our great fashion partner sponsoring the outfits in this blog post!
