My First Night Tent Camping

Guys, I went TENT. CAMPING. Yes, this diva went out into the forest, pitched a tent, didn't wash her face before bed- and had the best time ever! My husband is a true outdoorsman. He loves being in nature, doesn't mind getting dirty, and knows how to pack light for any adventure. He's been camping numerous times before in all sorts of climates, but I haven't been tent camping since I was a kid and even then, I think I've only been once? I don't remember much of it at all. Anyways, last night we decided to drive out to the mountains and camp to see how Rex would react to being in a tent all night. He's never been away from home for the night, so we wanted to ease him into camping since it's something we're hoping to do more often.

It went so well and Rex did great in the tent. It took us probably less than 10 minutes to unload the Jeep and get our campsite set up for the night. The spot we picked was really private and peaceful. It was right on the river so you could hear the rushing water all night. I love white noise when I sleep, so that was a huge bonus. Shaun made us a fire and whipped up a peach crumble for dessert before we headed to bed.

It took me a few minutes to get comfortable, but overall I slept pretty well through the night. It rained a little before we woke up around 5:30am, but it wasn't too bad. We packed up pretty quickly so we could head back home and I started my work day. It was such a nice little getaway and I'm so excited to do it more often!
