Your family is never closer than when everyone is packed inside a pup tent.

Go Camping

There's a camping trip out there for even the most pampered person (this author included). If the idea of sleeping on the ground is too much for you, opt instead to rent a rustic cabin or a motor home for your foray into the great outdoors. Those of you who love to rough it can camp the way nature and outdoor super stores intended. Load up the car with a tent, some food and other basic supplies, and hit the campsite of your choice. Your kids will love this opportunity to hike, fish and explore.

Parents of younger children might also seize the opportunity to make the trip educational by pointing out the various wildlife, trees and plants in the area. For that inevitable moment when your teenage daughter complains about the lack of cell phone service, simply make sure you're armed with s'mores fixings for the ultimate camping confection.

Walks through the woods or parks also work if camping isn't something you like. Or send the husband and kiddos.

My hubby is too pretty for camping....I might be able to convince him to rent a cabin somewhere nice though :)
