Gone Camping…

I’ve owed my nieces a little night of camping for a few months now.

Yesterday was the day that everything fell into place so we could have our special day.

After dinner and S’Mores, they watched a late-night movie from the top bunk…such sleepy eyes.

Yummy breakfast…

Each year I have such great intentions of taking my sweet little trailer camping and most years it just doesn’t happen.  I keep telling myself,  “this year I’m GOING to do better”…so this was a fun start.

…and I didn’t even have to leave my front yard!  😉

…or have the license renewed.  Once I take the girls on a real camping trip with their playhouse my trailer, I’m not sure I’ll get away with any more of the front-yard camping but for now it’s really quite enjoyable {w/indoor plumbing and all…}

Now they are trying to convince themselves to get into the very cold water of  my new {$10 garage sale find} stock tank!

Remember to go HERE and leave a comment for a fabulous, lathery give-a-way!

  3. It would be so nice to get away and camp. I would love to have a camper. Front yard is at least a safe place.
