I don’t know about your but when I think of summer, I think of camping. Maybe because I spent a lot of my childhood summers, when I wasn’t at my grandmother’s in Florida, camping. I loved camping as a kid. Does your family love camping? It’s a great affordable way to get out of New Orleans for a bit, spend some time with nature and bond as as family.
