Follow along as we go camping for the first time!
One 4 year old
One 2 1/2 year old
One 1 year old
One big-ass tent!
We had pizza, corn on the cob, pancakes, hot dogs, s’mores and even a tofu scramble – all over the campfire!
This was opening day… we’ve had a Sam’s Club for a while, but I got a little too excited over Costco (organic, vegan-friendly food items!)
I am still struggling to find a better word than “WOW!” to describe this book…This book wasn’t just created for vegan families but this was created for those who like to entertain or go to their local vegan potlucks and they want to provide a meal that is not only fuss free but also delicious.

But a lot has changed since then. I went on to create this blog and I was crazy enough to have another kid since then…hahaha! Don’t get me wrong, I love Camille and every morning I wake up knowing that I have this HUGE gummy smile waiting for me the moment I open the door to the nursery. I just haven’t slept uninterrupted for what seems like forever and I have a feeling that as much as I look forward to sleeping without anyone waking me up, I am going to miss the sound of my kids’ voices.
