Making me happy:

Good vine-ripened tomatoes. Half off at Fresh and Easy... they were just sittin' there looking all picturesque... I couldn't resist.
And the fact that we're going CAMPING tonight with a bunch of families from our church. It'll be the first time our family has gone camping together- EVER. I used to claim that I was truly an outdoors-girl, loved sleeping under the stars (or with a thin layer of rayon- or whatever tents are made of--- in between)---until Ross called me out once on the fact that in six years of marriage and a couple of years knowing me before that, he's never seen or heard of me going camping. And that quite frankly, he's not into it himself. So maybe I should just get over it in general. Eh? I decided he was right. I couldn't even sleep on a couch anymore.
Who was I kidding? Just because I don't mind skipping the shower for a couple of days, doesn't make me a camper. Double pillow-top and some good neck support please.
But I think this just might change us. I'm really excited about it. I think the girls are at good ages where it just might be really, really fun! And it's only one night and really, it's a park. So I know we shouldn't really need it, but wish us luck!

We have a tent trailer and WE don't even go camping. Could it have something to do with the thought of battling five kids five and under in the dirt and muck...hmmmmm...I wonder?

I love this post. Ryan is totally anti-camping. He loves to give all the reasons why we can't go. Last time we were going to go, he was out of town. It started raining and there was no way I was going out of my comfort zone. Ryan likes to point out how comfortable those Marriott beds are.

I can't WAIT to hear how this goes.

I would also like to say that if I looked like you, I would be fine with camping. yes, folks, it's all about vanity. lillie can pull off beautiful with or without trying. some of us others just can't. :)

Your pictures of this camping trip are going to make me purchase camping gear. I will go camping and be confused the whole time why it's not looking the way you made it look.

Lillie-You are so amazing at that camera!!! Have a great great time.
