It's A Sickness Really

So as much as I love my Lil' Lemon Drop and could never think of parting with her, I have my sites on a new project. After camping this past weekend a few things came to light for me:

* I am in need of a self contained unit.
* I really could use one more sleeping area.

I go camping minus the Mr most of the time. It is the thing the kids and I do to help pass the time when he is away. The campground we stayed at was wonderful but the bathhouse was about a 1/4 mile away. Not good for a momma with 3 kids that have to stay in eye shot of me. So I talked to my Daddy and he found some other options for me. Here is one of them. Please excuse the photo quality it is from a cell phone.

This is a 1972 Shasta Starflyte.

I am already dreaming up a new color scheme for her. The fact that she has her original wings is always a plus in my book. I am thinking of a nice airy interior seaside cottage style....I mean we do live at the ocean after all.

I would love to hear your thoughts. The idea of getting to do another project with my Dad makes me happy. And coming up with the inside look and outside color pattern is something I love.

The Lemon Drop Spread Her Wings

We had an awesome weekend camping. The weather was perfect, as if we special ordered it just for this trip. It was so great to get my tiny trailer on the road again. I had missed her. So had the kids!

Pancakes always taste better from a pink stove!

We went with two other families that have become our family, since we live away from "home". It was just me and the kids as my Mr was away on business as he so often is. This gives me and the kids something to do to break up the time.

I love that they love camping. I hope to give them so many happy memories doing this. I hope to give them a love of being outside and enjoying the more simple things in life. God gave us this amazing world and I want them to know it!
I am so blessed in so many ways and all the people there this past weekend are one of the many blessings. God sure must love me to have put them all in my life, my awesome kids included!! Can't wait for our next trip and some more campfire popcorn!!

* Thanks Johnny, my popcorn maker is going to be one of the most used gifts I've ever gotten for Christmas!!
