My family loves camping and always has. When my sisters and I were growing up, we took a week-long camping trip to our favorite campground every summer without fail, accompanied by my cousins' family. Our two families would get adjoining sites and spend the week doing things together - bike riding around the campground, visiting the beach, spending time at the camp store and the playground, hiking, visiting our favorite local attractions, and just relaxing and playing in our campsites.

Things have changed since those days, and we no longer go camping with my cousins. Instead of a tent, we use a pop-up camper, and this year we haven't planned any trips at all - we adopted ferrets earlier this year and found that while they're tons of fun, they also require lots of care and upkeep. As of yet, we haven't found anyone to take care of them while we're away, so that means at the moment there won't be any lengthy, week-long vacations or road trips...but that doesn't rule out day trips!
