What do you all do for recreation in the summer ??
Do you take vacations ??
Anyone like to camp??

As you may know we are campers/boaters
We used to rent little cabins,then bought a used 5th wheel
And this year we upgraded to new and got a seasonal camp.

Did you know im EXCITED ???
We are thrilled we thought we would have to wait till after Travis graduated.
but with Chucks promotion we got to up the plan 2 years
Im decorateing the camper in retro diner stuff..
Im having so much fun I just wanted to share.
We pick up the camper April 11th..and get our seasonal spot April 15th..

Its so nice to be able to do this we are far from rich people and hubby works so hard
and he relaxes so much camping...I can post some pics when we get it if anybody would like to see...Its nothing fancy and our boat is a small boat but the lake is gorgeous and im hopeing we fit in.
Chuck has some cousins at the lake.
They have some huge fancy campers and boats but who ever said fancy makes more fun ?
Shelly

Shelly, I can't imagine ANYWHERE that you wouldn't "fit it"! Anyplace you didn't would not be worth going to anyway. I love that you enjoy your life and SHOW it! You always seem so happy and upbeat and so much fun! And you are soooo right! "Fancy" does NOT make more fun! Take lots of pictures so we can see.
As for summer, it's pretty much like the rest of the year here. lol Other than the kids being home from school, not much changes. We always manage to have at least one or two extras around the house and when it's hot, usually more because of the pool. There's always sports games going on so we do a lot of game hopping--they're often scheduled on the same days at conflicting times but we have to "put in an appearance" or someone's feelings get hurt. Since we've only been married a year, we really don't have any "usual plans" but we'll probably go up to Alabama to see his mother (I LOVE my mother-in-law!) and of course, hit the beach a time or two! Other than that, working on the house. We need to re-roof and re-side sometime in the next year so if we can afford to (i.e.--if I get AND KEEP a job...lol) we'll probably do the siding this year and the roof next.

That is lots of fun...We have a 5th wheel also...Haven`t used it since having Miranda but, we stayed in it for awhile when we were first together...it was so much fun! Traveling to neat Parks & just living in it !

I enjoy camping too! I just really love the great outdoors! So peaceful! I know someday before Miranda starts school we will hook the 5th wheel up to the desiel & set out for a little traveling adventure! You`ve got me really thinking on it now! Thanks!


Hey make sure you keep us updated on your camping adventures ok?

We don't really have vacation money. The kids go to the pool on a daily basis and we look for local fun practically free things. One time a week in the summer we try out a new park. That sort of thing.

I dislike camping. I prefer my walk to the toilet to be indoors and critter free.

Shelly you must be getting really excited now!!! April 11th is coming soon!!
We use to camp out as a family when I was younger in a tent. We did it a few years but than us kids just propped it up in the backyard which was alot of fun.

We use to send the kids to a daily summer camp in the mornings but not this year due to expenses. We will take our trip to the western coast of Cyprus for one week set up through my dh's work so we pay cheaply for it. And it's very nice place - a big plus. We'll be doing alot of day trips to the beach or the pool. Not much else planned but to keep cool B)
