Welcome to Happy Campers - basically one mom's attempt to make summer vacation for her 10-year-old son and 7-year-old daughter a little more fun. We'll be sharing activities, crafts, recipes, books, celebrating holidays you didn't know existed and more. Some of our posts will be specifically about the Vancouver/Portland area, where we make our home, but we invite you to follow along and share your suggestions and ideas. We've also got some great resources and book recommendations over in the sidebar too. Happy Camping!
