for the last four years, we have done an annual camping trip with two other families. we have known each other since our oldest kids were all in the same early childhood family education baby eight years now. somehow we all decided to do a camping trip four years ago, and we have made it a tradition. we call it "chaos in the woods" because now, it's six adults and eight kids. we are outnumbered, and it is always a little chaotic, in a good way.

this weekend was filled with lots of laughs, a few tantrums, swimming, hiking, napping, drinking (prosecco is meant to be drunk from coleman enamelware), grilling, eating, s'mores, music, meteor showers, and really good friends. the weather was amazing, the company was even better, and we are already planning next year's trip!

how was your weekend?

  1. Great outfits! Sounds like a fun camping trip! :) T.

  2. Camping is always a blast (and a little chaotic)!

  3. Great inspiration this week, guys! I love your interpretations esp Megan's shoes and vest and Nora's jeans and hair.

    Camping: hmmmmm, didn't do it this weekend but got close to it last weekend. This weekend was nice; great temps in the weather and just hung out around the house. Oh ...and Date Night!

  4. I remember when you told us about last year's camping trip! I have never been camping...I'm not an outdoorsy kinda girl. Maybe I could settle for glamping though haha. :)

  6. Wow, I have not been camping in quite some time, but I loved it when we did go. The two-tone cardigan is so cute! Love these outfits, and hope you enjoy your week. /Madison :-)

  7. It's been 10 years since I've camped - but you sure make it look good. :)

    Love the headbands on you both!

  8. my family went camping every summer growing up and i have such great memories of it!! love your headbands!

  9. Cute outfits today! :-) I'm horrible at layering, so you've inspired me a bit!

    Sounds like an excellent time camping!

  10. Sounds like so much fun! We used to do that with a bunch of my mom's family and it was always a blast! I think camping is more fun when you go with a big group!

    Love both of your outfits - especially your shoes Megan and your sweater Nora!

  11. Aw I'm not a great camper but I do love watching kids have fun with it. It's one of the only times they seem to forget about electronics! Glad you guys had a great time!

  12. Wow, your weekend sounded amazing! Meteor showers sound magical!

  13. I am not a fan of camping, but I've always loved the idea of laying out on a blanket and watching a meteor shower.Too bad i live in the big bad city!

  14. I AM obsessed with your cardigan Nora! Both great looks ladies :)

  15. I am loving your shoes and sweaters you two! The camping trip sounds awesome! I hope you share pics!

  16. Sounds like a fun trip and a really lovely tradition.
    Love your looks!
