We made it a family affair camping trip at a state park recently. Now that each of the kids and their families and us have their own RV we did a group long weekend RV trip to Buccaneer State Park in MS.
It was a combination of the first "group" trip and the birthday party for a four year old.
With just about 200 concrete sites, park rangers patrolling, paved roads, windy breeze from the gulf, and a water park with a giant wave pool made it a nice 3 day trip.
We took turns with the food menu. With four RV's there was lots of good food to go around. One did steaks one night, one a pork and chicken pastalaya, one a burger/dog birthday lunch grilling, and polish sausage poboys, spinach dip, Caesar salad, birthday cake, ice cream, and snacks thrown in during the day.
A quick bike ride to the camp store for some condiments is better than a hot walk on foot.

The birthday girl and her gifts and her other grandparents came for her party.
And then the water park which is in the state park where we were which made it nice to walk to and from.

Even I enjoyed the wave pool with my sun hat, shades, bad hair, and tons of sunscreen on.
April is so mid-year. Now it's May. Time flies. Things change. That's what so great about blogging, also. Time has flown since I've last blogged.
There are still sewing projects in my life. This summer dress. I just really love it. Her mom, not really thrilled over it.
Trying out a new version of quilting, I call art quilts. This happens to be a peacock art quilt. Yes or no?
And I've become a vendor in a local antique/market gallery. There's a ton of stuff stashed in my little corner of husbands workshop that is perfect for selling that I've had for years. No, I'm not a hoarder. Just stuff nicely stacked and boxed away from times gone by. Some stuff new never used, some old, and some not so old. My first set up is mostly framed prints, decorative shelves, etc.
Then I added metal patio art, small furniture pieces, and other new, old, and not so old stuff.
Christmas was over two months ago. I did do Christmas with family and friends.
It snowed for the second time in two months, each for one day. I know now I don't need snow in my life.
January and February birthdays have come and gone. You always need a cake and a gift. A February birthday calls for a king cake or two or three even if it has to be before your actual day.
There was sewing projects done in the last two months. Another carousel horse quilt that I'm obsessed with for some reason. It's the third one I've made. And one I call the bird quilt. And a new adventure started in February that I'll share soon.
Now it's March and I'm back. Maybe because it's springtime almost. Or maybe I miss the ol' blog. Or maybe it's because my blogging friends keep on blogging and it encourages me also.
. . . happy life, happy wife, mom and maw-maw, a heart for family fur babies, a sister to many, a daughter, and a child of the King. I love outdoors and doing a little sewing, crafting and making a house a home.
