What have you been up to so far this summer?
If you follow me on Facebook then you know that I bought a car a couple of weeks ago. We are keeping my Saturn Vue because it can tow the camper and it is paid off. That means we can have more family fun (cheap) vacations!
BTW – I am still getting used to a SMALL car.
Yes this is my car – the dealership had a better photo than I could seem to take. Meet “Bailey” as Mike named her. She fits in the garage really well
When we last spoke I was putting Kaela on a plane to spend 14 days in Seattle and Alaska with her Grandparents, Aunt and Cousins. She has been looking forward to this trip all year. We are picking her up tonight at midnight at the airport. CAN NOT WAIT TO SEE MY GIRL!
While Kaela has been gone those of us who are left behind…. Me, Daddy, Grandma, Tink and Radar all went camping for 4 days in Austin Texas.
We went to McKinney Falls State Park and had a very restful couple of days. On Friday we drove into Austin to walk around the capitol. I have lived in Texas since I was 13 and this was my first time to visit. What an impressive history lesson!
Once we made it back to the park Mom and I went hiking and found the “falls”
It was a long, HOT walk and we darn near got lost on the way back because I could not find the entrance back to the trailhead. Thank goodness for butterfly nets – because that is the only way we found the trailhead.
We had a blast but once we made it back home I had a mountain of laundry to do. Why does that always happen?
