The Fam Bam Camps

My husband and I bit the bullet, so to speak, and we took our newborn on her first camping trip. We spent the weekend in central California at Lake Lopez. The trip went really well. Little Willow is such an easygoing little baby, so the whole trip was very pleasant. The heat was an issue for the first couple of…
