no power and 2 weeks to go

We have had an interesting 24 hours....started out with a tornado warning, followed by some high winds and loss of power...continued hanging out in the dark with our neighbor and her kids, then playing Skip Bo by Computer battery light.. and then with my darling 4 year old screaming his fool head off for an hour because it was too dark to go to sleep, (yes, we gave in and let him fall asleep in between us, and then put him back in his bed)...my sis in law and I got so hot, we gave in and went to lake....we called it prep for Lake Superior! Man, that water was C O L D !!!!!! We finally got our power back about 24 hours exactly today!...

On another note, We are leaving for our beloved Upper Pennisula and Lake Superior in exactly two weeks. While we are up there we are going to look for some property hopefully on a land contract that we might be able to purchase...Two Weeks Exactly, I can't wait!!!!

Great Weekend

We had an awesome weekend camping. It rained a bit during the night, Saturday, but otherwise was beautiful weather. It was good to get out and relax a bit, by the fire, and listening to the sounds of the drummer and flute player drifting on the breeze from the powwow that was going on at the organizational campground. It was peaceful to hear the flute music just floating on the breeze, we were camped probably at the furthest site from the powwow but yet we could still hear the music, I am sure they had loud speakers set up and that's why we were hearing it, but still, it was cool.

Today, Today, Today!!!!!!

yay, it's finally here!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Camping season has officially begun. Dale hooked up to the camper last night and headed out about 20 minutes ago to drop it off at the campground! As soon as I am done with Gram, Trenton and I will pack up the cooler, and head off for a grand weekend at the campground. There is a Native American Powwow going on too, so we will have lots of fun....Smore's, fishing, and a powwow...yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay!!!

S'mores and stuff

I keep getting teased.....there is a new hershey's commercial out there that advertises S'mores...has anyone seen the new marshmallows...they are S'more's marshmallows or so they advertise on the packaging. Walmart has them, they are little flat squares of Marshmallow...last year, i discovered Campfire Marshmallows, you know the ones that are like 5 times the size of a normal marshmallow...now they want me to use these puny little things....i think not....won't be finding them in my camper....

almost have the camper ready to go...need to switch the tires around (we bought two new ones) and get our hitch back from our friend (my husband loaned it out...grrr)

May 19th is the first weekend out, yes i know that's a thursday...we go out on Thursdays...then comes the whirlwind of my favorite sister in law's graduaion and open house, finals week, and then FINALLY... we get to leave for the U. P.
