One of my favorite summer activities is going camping! Violet agrees with me, of course. In fact, she and I have been camping together many times, from Cape Cod to Zion. However, yesterday it was pouring rain- definitely not a good day to play with our tent in the courtyard! Instead, we got out this little Playmobil camping set. Isn't it cute? It even has a tiny camping stove!
I have been waiting for this set to come out- I'm so glad my parents got it for me! I am not allowed to take my Playmobil outside, because tiny pieces are easy to lose in the grass. Still, it was fun to set up the tent and camping scene up on my craft table. I love to play with my Playmobil sets, but it is even more fun to play with Violet because she gives the characters the best voices!
Violet loves how the dad in the set didn't shave! He has little dots all over his face! She also loves the bright yellow tent.
Here is the little scene up close. Aren't the figures cute? I can't wait until it is time for me to go camping again. My mom and I have been poring over all of our different travel guides, thinking up places to camp. Of course, our family favorite is Cape Cod! I am hoping to go there this summer, but my moms say that we'll have to see.
Have you ever been camping? Where did you go? The mountains? The beach?
In this entry I'm wearing: yellow and white striped shirt from Our Generation at Target, green shorts from Royal Doll Boutique. Violet is wearing overalls and purple tee from American Girl.

Today is a special day- it's Blogging for LGBT Families Day! My family is special because I have two mothers- Mama and Mom! We all live together with our cats, Chaika and Nico.
Our family is special because we love to spend time together traveling, especially to National Parks. You probably already know this, but I am a proud Junior Ranger at many different parks. Our family is special because we speak English and Russian at home. Our family is special because we live in New York City and love to visit all the different museums and neighborhoods here.
I'm proud to be part of an LGBT family! What makes your family special?
