Camping with twins – part one

“You’re going camping?”
“To France”
“With twins”
“Are you MAD?”

Something I’ve heard a lot over the last few weeks. And potentially yes, I am mad. However, as I’ve spent many years as part of the Canvas Holidays marketing team, it seems only appropriate for our first family holiday to be a Canvas one. So while husband Dave got excited about which campsite we should go to, I started to worry about the practical things. Just how many vests do two seven month olds need for 10 days? (Technically 40, but lets not go there!) Can you buy our brand of formula in France? (Yes, but we’re taking our own just in case). Is it OK to ask my parents along to help? (YES, YES, YES). How many nappies will we need (I’m really not going there. Let’s just say a LOT!)
