John's new Home...

Well it's official we now own a camping trailer. After years of waiting and wishing we finally got one. We have been tent camping ever since Tyler has been 3, and those of you that have ever tent camped with kids no that this is not any easy thing to do. After last summer's camping trip when our tent flooded after a heavy rain, I swore I would never tent camp again. So after talking with my very generous Mother in law we were able to buy hers for a steal. And we don't even have to start making payments to her right away, I mean how cool is that. They have not used it in 2 years so it was pretty dirty. All day John and I scrubbed and scrubbed, well I did most of the scrubbing, he was busy trying to figure every little thing out. By 5pm my hands were so sore and red I just wanted to cry. So John took me out to dinner and shopping, he sure knows how to make a girl feel better. I have never seen so many mouse turds, and anyone that knows me well, knows I do not do well with mice, they really creep me out. I was bringing things inside from the trailer to wash and a dead mouse fell out right in front of me. That did not go over so well, I literally was gagging at least 15 minutes, Tyler went running when he thought I was going to be sick. Made the day really interesting though and we got to spend some quality time as a family working on it. Now I just can't wait to camp. Some of my best memories as a kid were spent camping with my parents or grand parents I sure hope I can provide the same for mine. I am so grateful to my Mother in law for making this possible for us, it was so very nice of her. We still have a lot of work and cleaning to do, so tomorrow after church we will be back at it as if I don't have enough to do already, but it will be so worth it in the end. Especially now I will have somewhere to send John when he is in the dog house. He calls it his new home.....

Congrats on the new camper!! Tent camping with kids is kind of a pain.
I used to love tent camping, but as I have gotten older I want some luxuries on my trips!
I look forward to seeing some pics from your new camper adventures!
