Mama Nessa Summer Camp

October 5th, 2015 in About Me, Parties

Shae calls me Mama Nessa because I guess she has a few mothers and I am one of them?? Who knows. We had one, just one small & cheap summer vacation planned as a family and it fell through. Tyler had the chance to go to Oman for work and he took it. And I did not want to take a bunch of little kids camping alone. We even bought a tent as a family, spend good time looking and them and good money buying one. One day we will have time to go camping! I knew my girls were going to be pretty bummed so I decided to soften the blow with setting up the house inside and preparing a “Mama Nessa Camp!”

It ended up being SO fun that I am going to do this every single year. I taught them camp songs every year and they thought it was the coolest thing ever. I sent up the tent with a projector inside for movies and fake stars on the outside.

We had so much fun:

We had just one casualty….I tried to make a dutch oven dessert for the first time. I burned the heck out of it!

    It’s important to have one casualty. That is a memory. Remember the year…
