Mom n Me Monday

We had a fun weekend... car auctions, Relay for Life, pop up campers and teething biscuits. It all started Friday evening. We went to a local Relay for Life event with our new Micralite Superlite stroller.  After walking for about 45 minutes we enjoyed roasted corn-on-the-cob and hot dogs. Lea and I headed home for the night but Kevin stayed until about one in the morning. Saturday morning we all slept in until 9am... even Lea! It was fabulous because she hasn't been sleeping well at all for the past several weeks. I'm talking screaming and crying for a couple hours every night at bed time. I think we're getting into separation anxiety because if you stand by the crib, without touching her or even saying anything, she's fine. But as soon as you are out of site, she looses it! Anyhow, I digress... back to our fun weekend. Saturday we all slept in then we met Grandma  Grandpap at a local car auction. That was pretty cool. Lots of 50's and 60's cars but my favorites are always the Corvettes. I'll take any year, however the 70's Stingray is my favorite. I will have a Corvette one day. Saturday afternoon we did a little grocery shopping. Lea really enjoys riding in the shopping cart. She's also getting to the point where she's reaching out and grabbing anything within her reach as we roll by. I got her some organic whole wheat teething biscuits to try and couldn't wait until we got home. So, I gave her one to chew on as we walked around the store... remember, I'm a first time mom. Needless to say, I had no clue how messy that would be! She had sticky, mushy teething biscuit all over herself and everything she touched. When we got out to the car, I stripped her down to her diaper before putting her in the car seat. So if you see one of those forwarded emails with pictures of crazy people that you see at Wal-Mart... we very well may be one of them! I'm just sayin', don't judge a book by it's cover. :)

Onto Sunday... we decided to check out a couple pop up campers for sale. We've been talking about getting one for at least a year. It's finally the season when people are selling campers so there have been a lot on-line. We found two that were in our price range and looked worthy of a visit, so off we went. By Sunday night, we were proud owners of a 1995 Viking Pop Up Camper! I'm so excited to get started cleaning it and packing it up for our first trip. I want Lea to have fun memories of camping as a little girl just as I do. Sitting in lawn chairs by a camp fire, splashing around in the lake, the smell of bug repellent and the taste of yummy s'mores. What more could you want on a beautiful summer weekend!? (Did I mention that our 'new' camper has a/c!?)

Here's a few pictures from our fun weekend... including Lea and myself for this Mommy n Me Monday. :)

  1. Oh wow a camper! Zac is going to be so proud and jealous! He wants one so bad. I have a feeling your purchase may inspire one of our own :)

    If so, I'm looking forward to some camping trips with ya'll when we're back in NC!


Have something to say? Let me hear it!
