Last weekend we dusted off the old pop-up camper for our 'one weekend a summer' camping trip.

This time we took it to Mike's old family farm, right along the river. It was a great family weekend... no plumbing, no electricity... just us and nature!

After a few mishaps with the camper... we had to sleep in the back of the truck, about as primitive camping as we could have got.

However- my niece and I took some great pix of the farm... and all the cousins...

It was a great relaxing weekend!

I haven't gotten to really play with my camera lately... but I did play with the pix of my nephew.

On the large frame, I found scrapbook stickers that say, "Always remember to wonder" and the small pix I put "Cherish" on it...

Now if I'd just make time for myself and get camera happy again!

I'm horrible!!!

A MONTH ago I said I was going to try to get back on here and be diligent... I'm HORRIBLE... a procrastinator... that's it.

I really have no excuse, work is still slow, DH is still at home taking care of the family and house... he gets to work on projects while surf the internet at work looking for ideas....

The one thing we are both procrastinating on is the bathroom. I was gung-ho to tear it out... and have created more headache in the process. In fact, two more rooms to demo now. That's the bad part of remodeling an old house. I've cracked open the big bag of jelly beans and they are EVERYWHERE!

Where do we start after tear out? Call the plumber, right? I'm scared too... because the plumbing, like everything else is original... and scary! (that's how we got to remodel the other two rooms... corroded copper plumbing). I hate to think of the dollar amount he's going to tell me it takes to make it 'right'...

We have another bathroom... maybe we could just use that one forever?
