Where I am Hanging


Remember last year when I thought we were going to sell our trailer? Well, we didn't. I have been a lover of camping my whole life but I thought maybe it was time to give hubby a break from it as he works outside and says he camps everyday. I left it up to him and he said he knew how much the kids and I loved the trailer so it stayed with us, unused all last summer.

I have missed it. Q and I have been out there getting her ready for this summer. She will head off for new tires this week and she will be set to go. We have two trips planned this summer so far. Yeah! I am bursting.

You can see a tour of the trailer here.

We "inherited" a camper from my inlaws when they got a new one. Its old and needs work, but I keep thinking: retro! Could be fun :)

We are campers and we love it!! Looks great in there. I have the same pillow from Target in our camper! Wishing you lots of fun!!

We love camping! It's a good thing too, since we're currently living in our 5th wheel while Hubby is working away from home.

Glad you still have the camper and are going to put it to use this summer. (I like all the cute, homey touches you added to it!)

I love your camper Elaine! We have a pop-up we love but I could sure use those bunks! Could you please tell me what brand your camper is? Thank you, Angela

CAMPING... I too love it. We tent camp, my boys loved it. Enjoy.
blessings to you.

Looks like lots of fun, and know you are so happy that you still have your camper! ENJOY!

Yay! I'm happy for you that you kept your trailer and have trips planned for the summer. I know how you feel. I love our trailer and getting away in it too. I like the loving touches you've added to your trailer...the Big Bear pillow, the blankets, the bears, etc. Very cute! Looks like a cozy, welcoming, great place to be. Have fun! :-D

I am so glad you kept it, Elaine. We have one that SOMEONE has been working on for 3 years~ I don't know if it will ever get done- xo Diana

Isn't it one of the most relaxing things you can do?? We love it!

Corn in my Coffee-Pot said...

Yay!
I'm happy for y'all!
...but in a way jealous!

My camper is still a shell of emptiness, waiting to be filled and loved, and camped in!

Ahhhh...one day.

What fun! I think it would make a fun slumber party out in the yard too!We used to do that when the boys were small ion the summer...pitch a small tent in the back...they had a wonderful time camping out there!

Michelle said...

We just got back from a camping trip and I am ready to go again. I love camping.

Happy Camping!!

Blessings, Nellie

Yay! Our trailer hasn't been out of storage for 2 yrs. Makes me sad. We love camping SO much, & camped 4-5 times each season for about 12 yrs. We have just gotten away from it & now my hubs wants to sell ours. I'd love to keep it, so we'll see what happens ;)

My favorite memories are my Mom,Dad, brother and I on trips in our camper. One summer we spent 5 weeks going to CA and back. Trip of a lifetime!

How wonderful that you held onto your camper!! I have fond memories of time spent in a camper as a child. My aunt and uncle had a pop up camper that always sat in their driveway and whenever we would visit them all of the cousins would hang out in the camper while the parents did their boring things in the house. LOL!! Such great memories!! Enjoy every moment in it!! : )

Cindy said...

I don't blame you for wanting to keep it. We went camping for years in our pop-up when the kids were younger. I want to buy a trailer to go camping with just the husband. Now I just have to convince him to do it:)

Monique Elisabeth said...

What a wonderful way to spend your vacation.
I hope you'll have a wonderful time.

Kris said...

I am so glad you didn't see your trailer! It is such a perfect size to pack up and go!

Sounds wonderful, Elaine!

you sound psyched :)

Jacqueline~Cabin and Cottage said...

There are few things more fun than a camper! It's even an extra guest room for us sometimes. The grand kids love it. Glad you got to hang onto yours!

I sold mine, crying, when my husband died. But without him my life changed and even travel had changed. I considered going alone but never did. I missed it terribly for awhile..but I am all well now and hope the mother and daughter who bought it (older women) enjoyed it as much as we did.
I understand your attachment completely! :)

Sarah said...

I'd go camping with a bed and shower. '-)
Looks like you will have a fun summer.

Cerise Wade said...

So fun! I kinda wish we had a little trailer. My husband loves going camping, but I have never really liked the whole setting up and sleeping in a tent part. This is much more my style.

Ricki Jill Treleaven said...

:D Thanks for linking-up. I've been thinking of y'all with the wildfires. They said on the news that lots of power lines are down.

My sister loves her trailer for camping. I wish I could fit 7 of us into one; just isn't practical.

Thanks for linking up at Motivation Monday!
