Last summer, Handyman Tim took the Peanut out for her very first trip camping. Since Little Pea was only 4 at the time and he hadn’t been camping himself for a very long time, Tim wanted to ease into the experience with just one of the kids at a time.

Worried this would cause some hurt feelings for the one left behind, I decided to make a Very Special Evening for just the two of us. I pitched our favorite tent, laid out our picnic blanket, and stocked up on picture books about camping.

The Peanut enjoyed reading the books about camping once she got home and I wanted to share our favorites with you in case you’d like to plan a similar event.
