5 Things My Girl Scout is Taking to Her First Overnight Camping Trip

5 Things My Girl Scout is Taking to Her First Overnight Camping Trip

My Brownie is heading off to her first camp outing!

I'm not sure how I feel about this new milestone. It seems like just yesterday that she started girl scouts and now she is heading off to camp. Sure, it's only overnight, in the middle of winter. And, the cabins are way nicer than the ones that I stayed in, ever.

I'm still nervous. She will be an hour away!

In an effort ease my anxiety, I'm trying to send her off to camp prepared. Besides the normal stuff like flashlights, clean underwear, and her mess kit, here are a few other things that I'm sending with her on her first big adventure with her family. *sniff* *sniff*

Another successful Monster Jam Cleveland has come to pass!

This year, we partied in the pit with the drivers and their trucks before the show.

We joined hundreds of Monster Jam fans for a chance to see the giant Monster Trucks up close and to meet the drives and get autographs.

These trucks are so big! All the drivers dwarf in comparison, but their love of the sport and the fans is HUGE and genuine.

The kids stressed to me that this year, their goal was to get as many autographs as they could manage to get during the pit party. Wanting to help, we made mini autograph books with a Monster Jam theme. Download and print it for free!

The Pit Party was packed! The kids were able to get three autographs before we called it quits and headed out for lunch.

Since we made the autograph books, next year they can add another title page to divide the signatures they already have with the new ones they will get.

There is enough of a break between the Pit Party and the big event, that we headed to a local restaurant for a quick bite to eat.
