First Day At Camp, Throwback Thursday

We just made our summer reservations, and I was in the mood for a camping post. What are your summer plans?

Some of my favorite vacations haven’t been to a special destination or an itinerary filled to the brim with new experiences. Those things are all great, and have their place. But what my mind and body usually craves is a week or two of no schedules, details, expectations of any kind.

My next plan for each day is made as my mood strikes me. If we’re hungry we eat, if we’re bored we hit the bike trails or swim at the pool, if we’re tired, we take a nap. If only life could always be that easy…


Huge baskets all around the poolside I kinda liked em, so did the bees

So far the only thing on my to do list is my stack of books by my bedside, and my biggest decision each day will be when do I have my first margarita.🤔

We have our Verizon Jetpack set up and working great for WiFi. Which means I can blog, read your blogs, we can watch Netflix if the mood strikes or play our Spotify playlist all from our RV now which makes me very happy. 🤩

We have a campsite right next to my parents in section L, my favorite section because it’s closest to the lodge and pool. I even turned on the AC today for the first time, sure enough… it works!

It’s a bit cloudy today, probably 75. Not the best day for the pool but the boys were going crazy for some pool time so we did the pool thing for a few hours.

Time to send the blog to you guys and have my first margarita! Happy Friday friends! Here’s to an awesome weekend! 🍹

Have you made any plans for summer yet? What are you most looking forward to?

  1. We just got our new RV to replace our smaller, 12 year old one. I’m still working through camping plans and actually struggling to find somewhere for Memorial Day weekend. I may skip that weekend. I don’t want to go to the shore. It’s too crazy there. We’ll see what else I find but we have a lot of other trips planned.
