Rent Parent Trap + A Family Camping Trip = Kids Off The Couch

Camping trips don't get much better than in Parent Trap, where twin girls play naughty pranks in the great outdoors, hoping to convince their dad's fiancee to flee so he will re-unite with their mother. Both the original film (starring Haley Mills) and its 1998 remake (Lindsay Lohan's debut) win gold merit badges for physical comedy and tug scampishly at the heartstrings. Inspired by Haley Mills' al fresco antics in the original Parent Trap, we decided to spend a few nights under the stars! We spent a fun-filled weekend at a nearby campground, exploring, relaxing and restoring our over-scheduled family's natural harmony for a few idyllic days.
