July: Create a Camp-Out Atmosphere
I live in Chicago, and though it's a beautiful city, it doesn't really have a lot going for it in the way of mountains or hills. Still, this Summer, I'm planning on camping with my toddler. I don't care if it's an official campground, our back yard, or in the living room — camping is special. It gets you out of the mundane, forces you to be a little uncomfortable, and to embrace your surroundings free from technology.
