Our Big Family Surprise...........

After years of saving, researching and dreaming..........we finally had a dream come true and found our perfect trailer.

We have dreamed of camping with our kiddo's and sharing with them what our parents gave to us as children........memories.
I vividly remember camping every fourth of July and watching spectacular fireworks, standing on my dad's shoulders in the lake and jumping off, campfire stories, smores, wading in the creek, fishing and loading up on boat loads of candy for only a dollar at the campground market (long gone are those days).

May I present to you our new memory-maker on wheels!

Jalyn jumping for joy when we pulled up with the trailer.

MY domain! Well as you can see I'll share with our camping dog:)

We surprised Jalyn with the opportunity to have a slumber party in the trailer (parked in front of our house) the first night we brought it home. He asked that I sleep in there with him. Now, if you know anything about me at all, you know I'm a big chicken! But I took one for the team. We watched Gremlin's, ate junk and called it a night around ten. I had a terrible nightmare that someone broke into Tariq's truck (as it was still connected to the trailer) and hauled us off. I woke at 2am scared out of my mind. I felt so vulnerable sleeping out there on our street!!! But I was a trooper and toughed it out. Jalyn, Nasser (our camping dog) and I all slept on the queen bed. Even though Jalyn has his own bunk beds in the back complete with TV, he wanted to sleep with Nasser and I.

Since Miss Leila retires at 5pm, she slept in the house, but she did join us for (her third) breakfast in the trailer. She was so excited!
