The hubby doesn’t travel much for work anymore but when he does it honestly sucks because we all miss him a bunch and everyone seems to get really whiny and crabby, not the least of which, me. So one of the delights of summer is that when he has a drivable work trip, we all pile in the car, cram in the hotel room and make a vacation out of it.
I know some people don’t consider road trips to random destinations awesome, but that is how our little family rolls. We like an adventure.
Some people have a different idea of a vacation adventure. Ryan is one of them. He keeps trying to tell me we should be a camping family. He even registered for camping equipment when we got married. As he pointed the gun at tents and sleeping bags, I looked at him worried that he had asked the wrong girl to marry him. Turns out he just thought he could make a camper out of me.
Eleven years later he has stopped trying. We are all much happier for that.
I have a vacation motto and it is a simple one: If you have to walk to pee or wear shoes in the shower, it is not a vacation.
I made a little button for those of you who would like to live by my motto. It would be awesome to stand in solidarity with like minded (smart minded) people so feel free to share this motto with your circle of friends. Especially those crazy (insert other, less appropriate words here) friends who keep trying to sell you on the awesomeness of a pop up camper.
You are welcome.
Do you like to camp?
