Family Fun at New Point RV Resort

After we bought our camper we knew we wanted to go somewhere for Memorial Day weekend, but it was March, and everywhere we called was already booked! 

We had a friend with a place in Mathews County, Va., and remembered a small campground on a beach nearby. We called the New Point RV Resort and scored big time! They had a beachfront spot open and let me tell you, we were the envy of every person there! The view from inside the camper was unreal! 

We were parked right next to the beach access and the employees were kind enough to use a tractor to help us get into our spot. It was tight, but being in the front spot made all the difference! 

The beach was amazing! It was super shallow there on the Mobjack Bay so the water was calm and the tide went out pretty far. It was knee deep as far as you could see. Perfect for kiddos! They didn't want to leave.

The campground also had a pool and playground, but both were pretty crowded. Despite that, the kids loved both.

I would say about three quarters of the campers there had year-round spots, but honestly, it seemed like they were all family. Everyone was very friendly... it almost felt everyone knew each other. That said, one warning: the golf carts are a plenty and at night they take over the walkways! 

We made use of the awesome farmers market wagon and bought fresh vegetables to grill every night! This trip did make us realize that we need to upgrade our grill... more on that in our next post!

Camping Meal Planner #1

When we go camping on longer trips we like to make a meal plan. If we don’t, we inevitably forget something or eat out more than we should. I’m all about efficiency, so I try to choose meals that we can have leftovers for lunch or that can be turned into a new meal. I also try to prep and freeze as much as possible. I do them all the weekend before we leave and freeze them in a Ziploc bag to save space in the fridge. The most important thing about this tip is to freeze it flat so it saves space in the freezer and defrosts quickly. Monday Breakfast: Bacon, egg and cheese hash brown scramble Lunch: Italian pasta salad – delicious hard salami mixed with made-ahead penne, mozzarella and Italian dressing Dinner: Cheese-stuffed burgers – beef burgers stuffed with a square of white cheddar are frozen Tuesday: Breakfast: Pancakes and sausage Lunch: Leftover burgers Dinner: Fajitas – chopped bell peppers, onions and slicked chicken are mixed with taco seasoning and frozen flat.

Long-Weekend Meal Planner

We do a lot of long-weekend camping and while it's only a few days, we still like to mix it up with the food. This meal planner was made specifically for a beach trip with great local seafood, but if that isn't available where you are going, you could always bring frozen shrimp and make a different type of taco!  Thursday: Breakfast: bacon/pancake sticks Lunch: Ham and pimento cheese sammies Dinner:   Shrimp foil packets (corn red potatoes) Friday: Breakfast:   Egg and sausage rollups Lunch:   Shrimp salad sandwiches (from leftover shrimp) Dinner: Fish tacos Saturday:   Breakfast: Sausage and egg sammies Lunch: Hatch chile wrap s from Trader Joes Dinner: Pork BBQ (make ahead and freeze) and potato salad (from leftover shrimp boil) Sunday: Breakfast: French toast casserole (make ahead)  

Camper Hack #1: Command Strips

After our first trip in the camper I knew we needed to make some organizational updates. I am an efficiency expert and I want to make sure every square inch of space is utilized while still keeping a comfortable and homey feel. We made a few adjustments each trip and now we are planning our first big voyage for spring and I want to make sure everything is ready! The camper hack we are focusing on today: COMMAND STRIPS. They are your very best friend. And would you believe almost everything can be used with a command strip? Towel bars Toilet paper holders Storage containers Paper Towel holders Broom and cleaning supply holders The list goes on, and on, and on! Here are just a few of my favorite Command Strip items we have working now: The command strip key holder is a MUST for every camper. And this one with the container attached is awesome. We ended up using it so much that we also purchased a cell phone container to go next to it. This will be new for spring and
