As promised in my last post, here is the "BIG" news.......
We got a new camper!! A BIG camper. We decided to trade in the pop-up for something in a "slightly larger" model (ahem....something with a bathroom). Camping this year really won't be the same! It will be.......dare I say it.........comfy.
Now I'm not saying that we didn't love the pop-up. We did. But we quickly learned it's downside on a trip last year when it decided to rain in the middle of the day for a few hours. Let's just say that 4 people stuck inside a tiny little box for HOURS (one of them being my rather tall and lanky husband and the other 2 being impatient little children), all huddled around a tiny little portable DVD player trying to catch a peek of the movie (and arguing EVERY.SECOND. that they couldn't see), fighting for position on the "couch" which was really just a one-person seat, was NOT fun. Not to mention the fact that when it came time to eat, Ron was forced to make dinner on the grill in the rain because there was no other alternative.
Not in the new camper. The new camper has OPTIONS baby. Like a microwave for one (can anyone say TOP RAMEN for dinner!!!????). And a stove. And an oven. And a FLUSHING TOILET!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Did you hear that?
That was the angel's singing.
There is also an entire bunk area for the kids and enough beds that we will never have to have them sleep together again.
Did you hear that???
The angel's were singing again. Louder.
Oh yes....the new camper will not only bring options to the table, but may just save me from losing my mind in the next rain storm.
Thank you camper.
