7 Quick Takes: Stairs, Love, & Camping

 
~~ONE~~
 
Did I ever post about our new clubhouse stairs? They are completely awesome.
 
 
~~TWO~~
 
Michael recently told me the reasons he is glad he married me:
 
1. I make the best chocolate chip cookie bars
2. I'm pretty hot.
3. I gave him great kids.
 
~~THREE~~
 
We went camping this week for the first time in our (new to us) pop-up camper. I made new curtains and recovered the cushions and I think it looks awesome.
 
Before:
 

After:
 

 
~~FOUR~~
 
 
Don't let that sweet face fool you. Malcolm hates camping.
 
~~FIVE~~
 
I am sure it had something to do with the 12-hour long thunder storm and the heavy rains that occurred for 75% of the time. It was like camping in Oregon only the beer selection wasn't as great.
 
 
 
~~SIX~~
 
The slackline was big hit!
 

 
~~SEVEN~~
 
I deem the camping trip a success even though I left early with the youngest campers. We had a wonderful time and were able to get in a 14 mile bike ride between rain storms. We got to try out the new camper and all fit in it comfortably.

I think you might have changed my entire way of thinking on camping... I always thought a pop up camper was JUST a bed!!!

Ooooh, I will comment both because I need to loose weight and because I like your wit! And I lived in Oregon. I know rain. And I moved to the woods yet I hate camping. And I like your voice.

Your camping trip looks so great! It *almost* makes me want to camp.
