other photos. We miss you Josiah! (Don't forget to water the lawn! ::snort::)
I did not nag. In fact, I was content. ::snort:: However, it became apparent that our trailer is not set up for "real" camping. The fridge quit working. I have no clue why....but it wouldn't cool. The battery totally died yesterday. We charged it with the van and it died again BEFORE bedtime....no lights, furnace, fridge, water pump.....not a big deal when we packed for camping....but we have no warm blankets, no coolers for food, no containers to haul water.....and so...
Our second site is also in a very pretty setting. We have a field for Frisbee behind the trailer, you can see the ring of mountains...all in all a very nice horse pasture it is. ::snort:: We are chuckling at how our views have changed...from "gee WHIZ can't they even get along without their electric for a weekend" to "OK - let's camp in the horse pasture!". ::snort:: Really, it all comes back to how you are packed. This has convinced us to keep one of our tents, one of our solar showers and such. Look how close our slide out is to the concrete divider.The younger four love these dogs that are across the field. The dog was better at Frisbee than the children. ::snort::
Quote of the day: Goes to Stacia. Jared was taking his shoe off. She loves to help the big kids take their shoes off. She has a shoe thing. She pulled his shoe off....took a whiff, noticed his socks were wet and said....."Ew.....YUCK!"
Ladies, I'd been feeling bad that I didn't get a book given away for the summer reading challenge before we left. BUT Trish is also volunteering some books. Below is a note left in the comment section - I thought I'd post it here so all can see.
Basically, go on over to her blog (because I'm not home!) and comment if you want to be considered for the drawing.
D ~ if anyone wants to win a copy of The Excellent Wife by Martha Peace to add to their Summer Reading Challenge list, I'll be giving one away on my blog. Sign up between today (June 20) and June 27 ~ I'll draw a name on the 27th and send the winner a brand new copy of The Excellent Wife ~ it even includes a cool bookmark! :)
