Happy 4th of July To All

I can't believe it is July already. Where has this year gone. 2009 is officially half over. Now how depressing is that! Anyways, onto celebrating the 4th. Hubby and I decided to go camping for the weekend. We both have an extra day off work so a three day weekend in the woods sounded like the perfect getaway.

We have been busy all week stocking up the camper. I believe I have enough food to last us for weeks in case we get stuck and can't come home. You know you can never have enough goodies when you are camping in the woods.

Here are a few extra pictures of our camper. I don't put out all my decorations when we are just going for a weekend trip so I will have to share more at the end of the month when we head out to Myrtle Beach for two weeks. More on that later.

Hopefully if the weather cooperates, we will be swimming, walking on trails and sitting around the campfire a lot this weekend. Our son Aaron is not going with us because he has other plans. I am trying to be okay with his decision. After all he is 21 and not a baby anymore. Our 13 year old daughter Allison asked her friend Carmen to come along for the weekend. I know the girls will have a great time together. We will be pulling out tonight to set up and tomorrow bright and early the fun will begin. Tomorrow we will just be filling the day with camp activities and Saturday we will be having a picnic with my in-laws. Sunday we will be packing up and heading home. Monday it's back to work for both of us. Drats to that!!

I hope everyone has a safe and wonderful Independence Day. Blessings to all my friends new and old. I hope you have made some fun plans and maybe you would like to share them with me.

Take care,
