A Weekend Away!!!

This last weekend we had the pleasure of being able to go camping for a few days! Ya, it was cold and rainy part of the time but the trailer my parents have is like a hotel on wheels! Furnace, microwave, tv and of course we must bring card supplies!
This first pic is my youngest daughter getting creative with her ink!

We enjoyed the bubbles....

The play station. Yes, even Allie looked like she wanted to play! My parents are not dog people and have not wanted to let her in the trailer (whose to blame them, she sheds soooo much) but because Chad could only come for one night and we had no where else to bring her on a spur of the moment she was allowed this time!

As always, she found a cozy corner and called it home!

Maya had so much fun creating that Dad & K also came to see the fun!


I still think they were just wanting to join in! :)

Ahhh, you can't have a good campout without a FIRE!!! This pic above is Chad's idea of making the best smores. Squishing the chocolate into the marshmellows and then roasting them.

Getting the toasting to perfection and being prepared to sandwich them all together. (Notice the graham cracker hanging out of his mouth and the other in his hand waiting)

It was quite a sight to see him eat his melted mess!

Hmmm, hmmm good!

Chad could only stay for one night and then go back to work while I had a couple more days off. So, the girls and I had much fun playing games, trying out silly masks and crafting together! We stayed in our pj's all day!

Then out of no where the sun appeared for a few hours! So we hit the beach! West coast style, in our winter coats not bathing suits!

All in all it was a much needed break from the regular schedules of life!


I also got to spend quite a bit of time with my Copics and stamps but I haven't taken any pics yet so, give me a few days and I'll show you the play time I had too!

Love the smores idea- I've never tried to make them with the chocolate goodness inside while toasting. Chad- you're BRILLIANT!!!!

I'm not a huge fan of camping but you guys actually make it look fun! :)

Theresa said...

Jennie, camping is kinda of not very accurate. We are staying in a hotel suite on wheels!!!! My parents have such a great trailer it is no hardship! hehehe

Looks like you had a great time! I so miss camping and the coast. We were supposed to camp during spring break but my mom got sick and we had to cancel. All well, they'll be other camping trips, but I've only got one mom!
Those s'mores look yummy!

I am just itching to go camping! We haven't gone since the boys were born. And I LOVE s'mores! (I don't know where that underining came from?????) The chocolate in the middle of the marshmallow thing is brilliant! I can't wait to try that. Smart man. :) Looks like you had a great time.

Ok, my previous post sounds a little crazy but really, as I'm typing some words just appear with a read line underneath. But it doesn't show up when published. Bizarre.
