Just a few thoughts about spring and upcoming summer!

This past weekend was Easter! It was a great day! It was a simple easy day with baskets, egg hunt in the living room and relaxing until dinner time. We went to Tony’s parents for dinner and the girls definitely enjoyed spending time with their grandparents.

I saw in the newspaper that rummage sales are starting and I am super excited! I absolutely love good rummage sales and hope to hit many this summer.

Today, was in the 60s which is way above what it has been since “spring” has started. I am very thankful because the girls are getting cabin fever from being cooped up all day! I have to admit I am too! We did get to enjoy this morning before the rain hit. We ate lunch out there and played on the porch.

Thinking about summer! I am pumped to get the camper all cleaned and ready to go! Camping season is coming up quickly and I want to make sure we have all that we need done and for it!! My parents were wonderful and got the girls each their own backpacks that have camping “necessities”.

Oh how I love spring and summer! So many great activities! What is your favorite thing to do in spring or summer? I would love some more great ideas!

Camping With Kids

This summer we have decided to try to test out our pop-up camper. I am very excited to take the girls in the camper I grew up going camping in. I have been planning and prepping for a few weeks so we are ready to go when daddy has off work! We are going to go to a close state park so in case we have to come back home we haven’t spent a ton and also are too far from home. I am crossing my fingers that all goes smooth. I have started making some lists of what to pack with us. Just the girls alone need a ton of items. I will separating each area with its own large container. Mainly, kitchen, cleaning and miscellaneous, first aid and hygiene, kids activity bin, bedding, and each person will get their own personal bag or container.
