The First “Roller Coaster”!!
Ever since I was tall enough I have loved roller coasters! My husband and my older son want nothing to do with anything like that! You can imagine my surprise when my 3 year olds BEGGED us at the local fair to ride on the little kiddie Roller Coaster!

Ok, it might not look it but this little thing was FAST and it went around the track about 20 times! They were laughing and squealing the whole time! They even put their hands up when they went down the track! It was so cute!

They were so proud when they got off…I’m very proud of my little brave kiddos!

Camping with Cloth!

Camping with Cloth Diapers!!

We have a camping trip coming up and we are so excited to get out of town for a while!I’m completely unwilling to buy sposies for your camping trip? I have no reason to use anything other than cloth, even if we are camping!! Plus like we want to spend extra money on something we truly don’t even want!

Tips & Tricks
for Camping with Cloth

1. Does your Camp site, Cabin or Location have running water?
If it does your set. If not, consider filling a few
washed out milk jugs with water to wash your dipes.
2. Remember to pack so extra dipes!
You never know when a blowout will happen…or bad weather.
I like to take Prefolds, Fitteds & covers.
I tend not bring AIO, they are thick, harder to clean and dry.
3. Don’t forget a clothes line and clothes pins!
I found mine at the Dollar Tree, or you could just use rope:)
Bring small plastic bags to dispose of soiled wipes.
5. Take a small jar: (like a baby food jar)
with some of your laundry soap.
To wash dirty dipes:

After cleaning/rinsing any soiled diapers,
add your diapers and a very small amount of
laundry soap to the Large zip lock bag.
Add water (add hot if you have hot running water)
until the bag is a 1/4 to 1/2 full. Zip bag closed,
then shake until you can’t shake anymore.
Dump water, and fill it up again!
Do this 2-5 times to act as a rinse cycle.
I try to “rinse” 4-5 times to ensure all soap reside is gone.
This will take less than 10 minutes!!
After your diapers are washed and rinsed,
ring them, then hang them!
I know this is not perfect! But it gets the job done without a washing machine!!
Bonus!! you don’t have to spend money on Icky Disposables..yay!!

Happy Camping!
