When our group of friends started having kids, we all started a tradition of a yearly camping trip, and this year it was particularly special as we've moved further away so don't get to see as much of everybody as we used to. The kids had the chance to renew their friendships, and we had a chance to sit around being silly by the fire until it was very, very late.
We found a brilliant campsite, Burnbake, just near Corfe Castle and Studland Bay in Dorset. Lovely setting, great atmosphere, and some beautiful places on the doorstep.
As we've been doing this for a few years now, we've built up a good selection of paraphernalia between us. Top of the pops camping equipment has to be all-in-one waterproofs for the kids, especially in our slightly confused English weather.
Our Spotty Otter gear has been brilliant, as it means they can all be zipped in their suits and out playing as the sun rises, leaving us to have a well needed lie in.
