Labor Day Camping


Well....I thought it was time to get off that Bridge!! I did not get to walk this year, boo hoo, but there is next year. I thought I would bring ya'll up to date to what has been happening around here the last few weeks.

When my plans fell through to go North for Labor Day weekend, Mr. Big decided we would go camping over at one of his brothers place. Soooo... we packed up our travel trailer and 3 GRANDKIDS and off we went. I will tell you a secret, this was not MY idea of FUN!!
Here are 3 Bored Gkids playing with the playdough I had to go get to try and entertain them with...along with lots of snacks!!


We took their bikes, but there are some really steep hills and Logan was wiped out after many trips on the hill...next is Emily walking her bike up the hill.

Tried to get Jen to smile, but she was being shy.
Just had to share this...the Potty!!! For everyone else...not me though, cuz I am special...
My home away from home, with my very own indoor bathroom!!
The kids did have a great time, lots of dirt, good food, campfire with s'mores. Getting to know Mr. Big's brothers and their wives. I tried to runaway by finding any excuse to go to any town with a store that I had not been to in awhile!! Remember this was Grandpa Ed's idea.
Don't get me wrong I love my gkids, but I am with them everyday of the week and wanted some down time. Oh by the way, did I say we did this little adventure in 24 HOURS!!! Yep, we left on Sunday morning and were back Monday by 4:oo p.m.
We all survived, they started school the next day, I slept in till 6:30 a.m. and now we are back to doing homework, going to football games, all the fun stuff that comes with School!!
Stay tuned for last weekends adventure...let's just say it was Adults only...
Lotsa love,
Gig

Abosolute, Stoli's, Grey Goose...anyone of these will do.

Also a shot of Crown Royal on the rocks will hit the spot too.

Hope K.C. is treating you good!

I'm looking for some simplicity. I'll take that camper!!! No, seriously. I'm so tired of cleaning this freakin' house. Ahhhhhhhhhhh...that looks like just my size. I'll need a 4X4 to haul that thing, won't I? What a beautiful life. Have you ever considered adopting me, T-Bone and 10 kitties?!

God Gig, to have you back means the world. You're just a breath of fresh air. Always. You know I love you to bits. Thanks for sharing your trip with the gkids. Perfection. You're a great gmother. Oh and lay off the booze woman!

Meet me at the Cafe. I'll be the one on the sofa with a drink for you in my hand!

I got drunk on Rum and some kind of fruit mixture Friday night. FUn, Fun Fun. Then I had to help my husband carry "Crazy Neighbor" home. She passed out in our hallway. Let me tell you, it wasn't an easy task, plus, I was laughing my ass off at her because, I was drunk and everything was funny. After I dropped her into the yard, my husband came out and slung her over his shoulder and carried her home. It was then my job to get her into her bedroom. Where I managed to drop her again. She has a huge bruise on her shoulder where she smacked the door frame. We finally managed to get her into her bed, and then we had to figure out how to get out of the house and get the doors locked. So we left her a note, and locked her doors and took her keys home with us. It was a fun night, and the shocker is that I didn't wake up with a hang over on Saturday!
