Nothing says Memorial Day more than camping. The woods, s’mores and fires, the lake, friends … mosquitos … yep, it’s that time of year. First off, I want to say THANK YOU to the men and woman who risk their lives on a daily basis to give us our freedom…. it truly takes an amazing and special person and for that I am forever grateful! Both of my kids’ grandfathers were in the Navy during WW2. We live in THE best nation in the world. Thank you!
Sooooooo …. a few weeks ago, Big Jake decides that we will celebrate the end of the school year with a trip to Lake Ouachita … Um, have you met your wife and daughter? A rough weekend to us is one where Dateline NBC is a re-run and we don’t get Mexican food. But alas, let’s go CAMPING!
I get it … I really have no right to complain. Our “camping” consisted of a 37′ motorhome – flat screen, washer/dryer,, and a group of avid campers who made it pretty easy on us, I must say. BUT …. did I mention Arkansas had FLASH FLOODS this weekend? Flash floods, 2 kids (one of which is a toddler), woods, and a worry-wart mother do NOT mix.
Needless to say, we camped 2 nights …. and moved the 3rd night to Jake’s parents’ house. It’s ON the lake, has a pool, and she cooked for us all weekend. My idea of camping. HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY YA’LL!
Our long weekend consisted of: Preschool 3YO graduation, birthday party for AMBER DOGGITT, and Glamping! Here are some of my FAVORITE pictures!
