Follow us on Instagram!These two. ❤️Turns out camping with a baby and two olders was not a relaxing choice. There were swarms of mosquitoes, I woke up every 45 mins, whisper screamed SHHHHHHHHH (on repeat) at everyone , forgot the salsa, froze my ass off... However, a fantastic choice WAS impulse buying the @backporchcoffeeroasters pour-over pouches. (swipe) I didn’t loud scream at my husband or kids because I was too busy enjoying my coffee 💆🏻♀️ @backporchcoffeeroasters if you would like to sponsor a tired camping mama, I will happily join your professional coffee drinking team. You know where to reach me. At least we got some pretty pictures 🤷♀️ #bendcoffee #campingwithkids #suckssometimesHappy belly.

Drive 630 lonely miles (or not-so-lonely if you bring a 3 year old) south of the Mexico/San Diego border and you arrive, bug-eyed and a little seat sore in a desert paradise. Around hour 11, as you approach the Sea of Cortez, the road ascends the coastal mountains. Awaiting you at the top is a breathtaking view and a well-deserved break from the preceding hours of desert landscape.
When I tell people that we drove 12 hours in one day with our just-turned-3 year old, they look at me like I am crazy. Will you believe me if I tell you that it really wasn’t a big deal? And that we did it without using movies or an iPad? Don’t let a long drive deter you from exploring the world with your child and trust me, an iPad doesn’t have to be your lifeline. We had so much fun talking to each other, telling stories, singing songs, creating window art with removable stickers, reading books… she spent time gazing, daydreaming out the window. As a child, those were the times my imagination went wild. I still remember, to this day, the stories I created in my mind with the passing landscape.
