GOOD question! I haven't done that yet....I wanted to in this summer. But not in a cottage or anything. Like tent, sleeping bags, type camping. My kids have never been really camping and I was wanting to take them this summer and I know Ace would LOVE it. Just don't how it would work.....four kids and a boxer..YIKES! I can just picture all of crammed in one itty bitty corner and Ace snoozing nicely right in the middle of the tent!
