A couple of weeks ago we went camping with the family. Since we don't have any camping gear we stayed with my parents in their new camper. We were totally roughing it:

When at one point their in-cabinet flat screen TV went fuzzy I managed to keep it together until my dad could turn the antenna (no cable hook up at this poor-man's campground).

This is the view from the sofa to the kitchen. The entire camper is bigger than our Dublin flat.

Sorry, but those are the only camping pictures I took. I was too busy swatting away mosquitoes and gnats to actually hold the camera. Funny thing is that Wes and I often talk about getting a tent, but then my mind wanders back to the A/C my parents have in their camper and well, I'm not sure I can wean myself off of that.

We did have a family picnic on Saturday (I don't know why I'm hesitant to call it a 'reunion') and that was awesome. I love hanging out with my family. The weather was perfect, there was a ton of delicious food, and best of all, my grandma was feeling well enough to make it. We belatedly celebrated her 94th birthday.


  1. My God the conditions of your camper are insane. I'm glad you were able to hold it together until the reception righted itself.
    Your parents may just be my new heroes. I want to live in a camper van like that and just drive around everywhere. High fives to M&J!!

  2. Trust me when I say the cost of fuel to pull the thing would put you right off it. And of course there is the size of the behemouth truck necessary.

  3. LOL! That's MY idea of roughing it! I've toyed with the idea of camping, but sleeping on the ground just isn't my bag.
