Camping with Kids (subtitled Camping with LIly)

A suggestion was made that we start this thread. To begin with, I am showing off my future camper's (We hope.) pictures.


This is Lily Abigail, born this morning at 2:39 AM, 7 pounds 12 oz, 19 inches, and looking just like her father did almost 30 years ago. Kevin held her first. She was quiet. I took her; she fussed. No! But as you can see in the second picture with me, she settled down.

Our first grandchild.

When we were searching for something different to give the kids as a gift, we thought that we would look to camping, since the kids are tent campers. In fact, Mark, our son, showed me the little tent that they had selected for Lily.

We found this: Kelty FC 3.0 Child Carrier Backpack and Amazon.com: Kelty K.I.D.S. FC 3.0 Frame Child Carrier: Sports & Outdoors for them new parents. It should serve them for camping, walking, hiking, shopping, etc for several years. This converts to fit smaller and larger babies.

They were very happy with it.

Good morning, New Grandma Cindy-
Welcome to the Club!
Lily Abigail's absolutely beautiful, and it's easy to see that she's happy in her Grandfolks' arms... lucky little future camper!
That backpack arrangement is ingenious- looks like a super all- purpose baby-toter/ manager.
I think it'd be marvelous in "camp"- a handy, secure place to set Lily down while you go about your camp chores...
If you can ever bear to put her down at all

Francesca
P.S.
I'll refrain from posting pics of my grandkids....today

Congratulations!

Beautiful name! I'm biased, my daughter's name is Lily (short for Lillian), but her middle name is Grace. And we plan to do some camping with her soon (she's 4 1/2 months).

Congrats!

The day our daughter was born was the most amazing day of my life. We have camped with her since she was 2 months old. That first trip she slept in a suitcase (open of course!).

That's an idea I will pass onto my son. I think that they are planning on taking her out in August.

My question is, which one of you is going to (re?)name your trailer "The Lily Pad"?
My guess is that both your girls will think of them that way, anyway!

And off topic though it may be:
Here's a Decorating Tip for you two Lucky Lily Lovers...
True Value has a paint color called "Pond Lily" that's really a white with just the faintest undertones of a kind of pinky-lavender. I put it in a rental occupied by one of our tenants with her own little "Lily"
The color really only comes out at night by artificial light, and it's so softly beautiful that I've continued to use it even though that tenant has long since moved on!

I will tell the kids about the paint but they just painted the room.

Hey Dan, that would be a great name for your "new" Scamp. We just had a custom wheel cover made with our Howie Uhaul name.

That is a great name. Thanks Francesca!

I just told my fiancee yesterday that we needed to come up with a name for our scamp, so Lily Pad is in the early lead (especially since we would not have purchased the camper were it not for Lily herself!).

We took out son, Quinn, (s)camping when he was about six months old. He was only crawling at the time, and seemed to be magnetically attracted to dirt. I think it will be a lot more fun this year, since he is now walking, and is working on talking.

We put him in the bottom bunk with a bed rail. It worked out pretty well, but it took a little work to get at him. It will be nice when he can sleep on the bunk without worry of falling off.

Something to consider. Most children fall out of bed because there's nothing to define the edge of the bed. A short bed rail provides the stop. It doesn't have to be so tall it's hard to get at the child. I built a rail to use on the top bunk that there was about a 1" gap between the top of the bed and bottom of the rail. The rail was made out of 1 1/2" PVC pipe. When rolls over and bumps into the rail they stop and don't attempt to roll over the rail.

Without knowing your child and how much they want to climb out of bed I can't recommend you do the same, but you might consider it.
