Didja Miss Me?

Well?  Didja miss me?  Hmmph!  I thought not..... Oh well, you too have a life to live.

The RV that was all ready to go camping, decided the week before, that it didn't want to go camping.  So we tented it.  We've tent camped for 12+ years and we have tons of equipment.  We have this HUGE portable garage that we bought one time when we were camping.  It ended up that we got this campsite that was right out in the open - nary a tree in sight.  It. Was. HOT!!  We needed some type of shade, so we found a Sam's Club & got a free 1 day pass & bought the garage.  It's really been great.  Better than the 30' x 40' blue tarp that we strung up one year.  Boy, did we ever look like a circus act with that thing.  Now it just looks like we're professional campers.

The day before we were due to leave we took the trailer to the RV place to clean out the stuff we needed from the camper.  The people there said that they'd had 2 offers to buy it, in the 3 days that it'd been sitting there.  I said 'Really?  Sell it!!!'..... King Turd said 'Sure, sell it if you get a good offer.'  We'd had a conversation a week or so ago about the money that we'd spent on the RV vs. the money that we could have put into a pool.  So, while at camp, I said let's crunch the numbers - the pros & cons of both..... So we did it & then I said 'The final decision is up to you.'  Result:  We still have a RV.  He decided that we probably wouldn't ever get the great deal on another RV (Thanks, Aunt G.!) and we had never used it.

We had a really great time.  The amusement/water park was fun.  I'd never been to a combo thing before.  It reminded me of a local amusement park that I used to attend as a child.  This place has been around for 30 years or more & I'd never been.  I'd never been on a midway or to an amusement park at night.  I've never seen a laser light show.  It was really fun to go & experience it with my kids.  Strange knowing that Bigfoot wasn't there too - I think he would have enjoyed it alot.  Sad that big kids grow up, move out & get a job.

Hope you had a wonderful 4th of July too.

Bye!  Love you!  Have a good day, Dear!

  1. Oh, I am feeling that absent hole that a child makes when they grow up and away! I know how tough that is.

    I'm glad you had such a good time. I love it when I hear about people experiencing things for the first time. We should all do more of that.
