Happy Camper Summer

If you follow my newsletter, you know I bought a camper this summer, and I couldn’t be happier with the decision! I’ve wanted one for years, and I plan on buying flamingos from now until the snow flies. I have learned so much this summer and conquered some fears too. Here are a few pictures from my Happy Camper Summer!

We’ve added a deck and lots of flamingo lights! Next time, I’ll get a picture at night so you can see them.

I love decorating my camper! My sister Penny, a fellow camper, thinks I’m crazy.

My daughters love making pizza bagels for lunch It’s such a handy camper snack! My brother gave me these flamingo glasses as a gift. I finally have a chance to use them!

Boating TERRIFIED me, but now I’m driving the boat. A lot can happen in a summer, friends! I hope to learn how to park the boat in the slip next year.

Another fear conquered! Thanks to my niece Izabel and daughter Maddie for pushing me. I still like putzing around the lake best of all. (The kids call it Mom Mode.)

Yep, I made this fire all on my own. Another happy camper moment!

There are two restaurants near our campground, and we love visiting them. They always have great food and entertainment.

This is the view from the second restaurant, Key Largo.

My family with my sister Penny and her family! We love making camping memories with them.

    Happy camping! We downsized to a pop-up camper. It’s still a lot of fun, but no toilet! Love the pics!

      Thanks, Kathleen! Pop-up campers are so much easier for traveling. Hope you enjoy the rest of the season!
