Our family camping trip - 2013

When I was a kid, we went camping every summer.  Was it fun then?  I don't remember it being a bowl full of laughs but I remember lots of things about it.  Like the one time we saw a bear.  I stopped going when I grew up, went to college, moved away and had other fun things to do!  Since we have planted roots so close to home, we started going back with my family for two years now.  Is it fun now?  Not so much for me or so I pretend:o)  But the fun thing about it is spending time with family that I don't see often.  My husband and son love it and it makes them happy.  So, I guess I do like it but won't completely admit it.  We did see a bear our first year back but not last year.  I hate camp cooking.  Camp cleaning.  Sleeping where bears can get me.  Hiking through the woods where bears can eat me.  Packing up in the rain.  

So, I thought I would create this mini using a Farmhouse Paper Company mini album and Jillibean Soup paper collection called Cold Avocado Soup!  The colors in this collection were just perfect for my outdoor excursion.  I threw is a tad of twine, tags and enamel dots.  












Thanks for going along on my adventure.  Its almost time to submit reservations again for this year!
