 Yes we have... they love it!  They aren't crabby at all about sleeping in a tent... that's more the parents LOL.

Lots of blankets! Lots of socks! And beanie hats! Mittens may be helpful too depending how cold it gets at night and how squirmy your kids are when sleeping.

Bug spray and sun screen are musts!

Bring some outside toys... Shovels, pails, cars, whatever.

Lots of wet wipes!

We go camping every July! We started this when we were dating. Dd was only a couple months old on her first trip. So this year will be our 8th annual camping trip :) And I still forget at least one important item every year!

if you have a portable dvd player or iPad for your daughter to use, bring it!
