The Great Outdoors

This weekend we took Peanut on her very first camping trip. She did so well and I am very pleased. She slept through the night, without freezing to death. She ate unfamiliar foods with a grin and a gulp. She picked up every spider and bug that crossed our path and said "woof woof" to every dog we saw. The weather was just on the cool side of completely perfect (exactly how I like it!), and the nights were clear and beautiful with a million stars. It was such a good weekend!

The neato-keen fire grate that my husband designed and fabricated.
We had no less than 20 people walk over to our campsite and ask
how he made it. I have such a handy husband!

is that for cooking? does it go up and down?

It is for cooking. It adjusts to any height and it is strong enough to hold my big paul bunyan-sized skillet. We love it so much that my hubby made on for camping and one for the back yard!

I stumbled on your blog by accident. I was typing in the name of another blog owner here, with a similiar name.

You daughter is beautiful. Isn't motherhood the greatest? I think it's the best job there is. I have three boys, ages 5 and under, and I love being their mommy. :-)

I have a blog too, if you ever want to stop by. I'll link my name to it. :-)
