Let's Pack Up and Go Camping!


Hey there, everyone! TGIF! 

This post is just a tad different, but it shows one of my loves... camping! I know that may not have been expected, but we have been camping since I was a baby. We had a 1987 Starcraft pop-up camper, named Alice, that we used since I was in high school. My parents  got a new one in the past couple of years, but it is still just as fun. 

We usually go to campgrounds - mostly to avoid the peeing in the woods things and to have access to ice cream. So, some may call it cheating, but whatever - it is still a blast. 

So, this weekend our church is going back to the denominational campground and it is going to be awesome! We go hiking, mini-golfing, swimming, play card games, and eat a lot of ice cream. Plus, there is a baptism of a couple of our youth and a meal afterwards. It should be a really fun weekend. Oh, did I mention that I'm preaching to the whole campground on Sunday? Yeah, I need to finish that sermon - over half-way there! 

But, anyway, my Pinterest camping board  has been over-flowing with campers that have been restored in vintage glory and I realized that I have a new mission in life and that is to restore an old camper! 

So enjoy some of my inspiration (especially those Airstreams: swooooooon) - I'm off to pack!

I think it's so cool that you love to camp, and these photos are super inspiring. My parents were born and raised in New York so always had a city mentality, and we never once went camping! But I really want to try it soon! It seems like a great way to appreciate the little things and stay connected to nature.

i've always wanted a camper- now THAT is a nice way to go out into nature. i like being in tents too, but this is just so much more cozy. it's so awesome your parents have one! and i love all the sweet ideas on how to decorate it. i think i'd just live permanently in it if it looked like that :)
