So..this is the Reader Digest Condensed Tomato Soup version...

We're on our way...

..and he built us a bed..from a "Bed in a Box"..

Then...he discovered...FIRE!!

Which was really good...'cos we were fREeZinG!

..we did a LOT of this...

We drove and found some sWeeT small towns..

..and we were totally  aMaZEd by the sight of this..

..and enjoyed every minute with tHeM..

Glad you had a great time. Loved your way of sharing a ton of pictures. Fun! We used to do a lot of camping but have not done it in a long time. I have gotten too used to hotel camping these days. :-)

Wish I'd have been there. I like camping. I just want SOME things around. Like plumbing.

What a good way to show lots of pictures. Sounds like a good weekend with family. I'm afraid I like the luxury of a bathroom when on holidays these days.

The condensed version of your vacation was very, very cool! I loved seeing all the pictures :) Glad you had a great time and welcome home!

You did an outstanding job of condensing your vacay but I must say, as much as I'd like to see all of those amazing mountains and small towns, I'd want to do it from a nearby hotel.

Looks like you had an awesome trip! I love camping too! I like how you put all the pictures together, I'll have to learn how to do that. Glad your back! Have a great week.

Ah Colleen - your posts are SO entertaining! Glad you are back home and that you had such a great time. I like I needed your Mr. B on our camping trips (when we used to go). My own Mr. B, wasn't quite as handy as yours LOL.

Fantastic pics and such a fun read!

Hugs,

Sue

Very clever way of showing us your camping trip. I'm still impressed! (I know what you mean about those photo files. Gheesh. I took 125 pics in four hours so I am also impressed that you have so few after camping for days. :D )

Debby said...

That was a fun post. I love seeing pictures, lots of pictures. You did a great job on them. Sounds like it was perfect and I am glad that everyone is home safe & sound.

So glad you were able to enjoy time and fun with all your "peeps". There is so much that's wonderful about camping; or so I've been told! :)
