Brooke Berman summer

Brooke Berman – We attempted our first camping trip as a family. It wasn’t a hardcore thing — yurts with a heating unit and nearby (freestanding) bathrooms. But it was a disaster. My son figured out how to climb out of the Pack and Play for the first time — hence, a lot of screaming and not a lot of sleep. We wound up driving back to L.A. at 3 a.m. telling ourselves that when he’s bigger, it’ll be easier. Who knows? Now we’re in New York City and camping (upstate) means mosquitos. Far less enticing than Lake Cachuma …
