Chillin' On Sunday

Sydney is playing doctor this morning. I've had at least thirty shots. Thankfully, they aren't real. :) Nathan is sleeping peacefully in his swing and Marc is working on the computer. We spent a lot of time yesterday doing our chores and so today, we are just hanging out. Sure, we have chores left on the list, but we always will. :)

I've had the opportunity this week to catch a few shows on FoodTV. Man! I just love LOVE food! I really wish there was a part-time cooking school around here. Trying to flub it in my own kitchen doesn't seem to be that productive to me. :) After all, I could tell you something didn't turn out the way it should, but couldn't always tell you why.

We're planning our first camping trip in seven years! I'm so excited. I used to go camping a lot when I was a kid and when I went off into the wide world I worked weekends or had volunteer obligations that kept me from going. Well, I also didn't have any friends interested in going, which makes a difference. For some reason, my friends didn't like the idea of traveling without a hair dryer. This will be the first of (hopefully) many family camping trips we'll take. I'm anxious to see how Sydney likes it. Nathan will hang behind this time with Grandma. Now, we just have to decide where to go. Ruh-any suggestions? I know you live close to me and are a nature fanatic. :) It will just be a long weekend so, somewhere relatively close.

Well, I'm off to help Marc with some computer work. Hope everyone is having a great weekend.

You could always come out our way. The pask has some places you can camp......actually, I believe both the state and national park out here have campsites.

Glad things are going well. I want to go camping this summer too so let me know what you find out about cool places.

Oh, and we should see if there are any cooking classes at Nova in the adult education program they do, that would be so fun!!

Oooh camping. SO fun! You will love that kind of quiet get-away. As far as suggestions, I have only camped in W. VA and the Shenandoahs near the Appalaichian Trail. Not too family friendly around there...I will see what I can find though! Glad you got some rest... :)

One of our favorite things to do was go camping. I hope you have a wonderful time. On cooking-do you have adult ed classes through your local school district? A lot of times they offer cooking classes.

Family camping trips are so much fun. I see a great tradition brewing here for the kids. Good luck, Jess.
