I like Mothers day just about as much as all the other holidays because it brings the family together. It was March since I had all my girls together with me. So what if it takes a made up holiday to do it.
Jessie (mid right) is home from college for the summer, when she goes back she will be a senior. Kylee (left) is graduating High School next month and will a free spirit for a while and Hannah (right) will be having little baby Rebecca sometime at the end of this month and starting the long road of being a mommy.
It's funny how all three are bigger than their momma. I guess they they got that from my side.
As for me, I spent last week wheeling and dealing, doing some trading and coming up with our new bug out house. Alright, I can call it that to justify it, but it's really for chili cooking and camping trailer even though it could be used for bugging out if need be.
A tent was nice in our 20's, the pop up was great in our 30's so this here should be what we need through our 40's and 50's.
To tell you the truth, when we saw it for the first time I told Candy (the wife, pictured in the middle above) I don't deserve something this nice. I don't feel I have been good enough to have this. I guess it's a mind thing, when you spend your whole life trying to live below your means it's hard to justify it to yourself you deserve something every now and then that shows how hard you work.
That big square in the back of the trailer, it's an outdoor kitchen. That was the selling point for me.
We will be using it for the first time this weekend. We have a chili cookoff in Greenville about 1 1/2 hours East from the house and there is a nice little lake close by we plan to stay at. Of course we will taking a bunch of folks with us so this will be a grate test for our new equipment.
That's all I got for now,
