The Trip: Last Post

This is the last post from the trip I promise.

Today everyone is home sick. Everyone except Nathan who is bravely pushing onward because he used all his time off on our trip. I am suffering from the general ailments of colds. We are a sickly bunch around here these days, and Wylie has had more sick days this fall, then all of last year I am convinced. I think we need to take more vitamins.... Also, as a confession, I would like to say that I am posting because I am avoiding working. I really should be working on some bulk banner orders and Thanksgiving Banners, but I am finding it hard to get motivated... But I really am going to do something productive, as soon as I show you these last pictures of how we camp. And then tomorrow I promise I will get back to my regular craft-kids-shoppe-random thoughts- post....
The best tent in the world. Kept us completely dry during one hell of a thunderstorm. Of course we had our air mattress and my favorite flowerdy blanket and soft pillows. One can only take "roughing it" so far.
Our Red Chairs. We completely forgot to bring any of the half dozen camp chairs we have here at home. So these were $5 Wal-Mart purchases. I was glad that I was along to pick out the color this time. No more boy blue-and-green!

MUST. HAVE. COFFEE.
This percolator belonged to Nathan's late grandfather and he treasures it. It goes camping with us every time and makes great coffee. We found this little one-burner contraption and it saved the day - well the mornings really - every time!
I am a southern girl, I guess it is true. And here is my bright pink cup (thank you Whitney!) and my mascara and eyelash curler to prove it. I must have my mascara - even when camping!

  8. I'm with you, I don't camp often and when I do I have my pillows from home, fitted sheets, comforter etc. Also the make up and every cleanser known to man that dosen't require running water!
    Last time I wanted to buy a chemical loo and solar shower but Babes put a stop to that. Hence I don't really do camping!

  9. I am so glad you made it to the sofa place in KC. And I am with you, a little mascara goes a long way.
    Looks so fun!
