We’re leaving soon for church camp. We’re going up one day early and spending it with my hubby’s sister. She lives about a half hour from the campground. She has no power though ~ last night’s incredible lighting storm struck their main power grid and knocked out power last night, they’re saying it could be out for a couple of days.

I actually sat on my porch last night and watched the sky, it was so beautiful but a little scary too, a tornado touched down 20 minutes from my place earlier in the day. Sitting on the porch reminded me of when my hubby and I were first married, sitting on the porch of our first house staring in awe at the sky.

My hubby is busy packing the RV (which cost us $2,052 in total to be able to take it away for the weekend! That includes: certified, e-tested, insurance & plates) I better go help him. My 3 year old is loading it up with all of our cereal; apparently that’s all we need to eat!

Have a great long weekend! See you when we get back!!

  8. how fun!!! And if you’re going camping, a camper is definitely the way to do it!!! lol

    I know when the family goes camping, it may feel crunched for the first few days. But after you get used to it, it’s a great feeling. Then when you get home, you almost feel “empty” because you don’t have the closeness you got so used to!

    And cereal is the best way to go! 🙂 My little sis has that figured out, too. We’ll be down to one box of her favorite cereal while we’re camping (or on a roadtrip) and she’ll be like, “Maegan, we’re getting low on cereal…I need some more!” She’s so cute!!!

  9. Have fun relaxing and drinking in some time away from home.
    Be blessed…
