Back from Camping

Well im back from camping..and let me tell you how good it feels to be home after trying to camp for 5 days with a 7 month old! Not looking too forward to that agian until he's sleeping in a bed. And I think we are going agin in a few weeks but to somewhere else. Im pretty much a single momma 3/4 of the year as my husband works out of town..like 23 hours away, and only comes home 1 weekend a month, so we are often visiting him in our travel trailer that he lives in. Its lonely sometimes but Im so used to my independance Im not used to him home any more!( I know that sound terrible). The older kids do drive me insane some days bickering, but that's life. Carting around a playpen, and all the other essentails was alot of work! Im happy to catch back up on my fav blogs to which I will do more of tonight! So we had a great time on our little adventure- We found a beautiful outdoor public pool which I took the kids to 3 times, an amazing tour of the WAC Bennet Dam in Northern BC, where we got to go down over 1000 feet into underground tunnels. This was so great! I didnt know until we went that this amazing dam that it holds back the largest lake in British Columbia-Williston Lake, and powers 1/3 of BC's electricty. Sorry if Im boring you but the kids and I had a ball here- definiatly worth it.
So thrifting -there wasn't too much
Stuff even at the thrift stores was quite pricey(to me) Im a nickle & dime girl, and there was only a couple to go to but that was ok, less spending for me! Heres a couple of transfer packs i found, so cute!!!!! Puppies & kittens vintage Vogart transfers:
Those kids on the front are halarious! And above a rare DMC hobby transfer booklet, with a few pages left!

How cute is this little guy?

And last but not least: 2 amazing Laura Secord egg cups in mint condition! I love them. Well with all the eggs & bunnies over here you'd think it was Easter!

I had better go continue unpacking and finish cleaning, so for today...

missed everybody, cheers for now!

You are far braver than I, camping with a seven month old. Sounds exhausting.

Glad the trip was fun - it's a lot to travel with a baby - I do remember! (even though my baby is now 6). Glad you're back - missed your posts and your comments!!

I thought my husband was gone a lot! He works six days a week, but comes home every night. I know what you mean about getting used to them being gone. Sundays are always a mixed bag, and then Mondays are a hard adjustment for our three-year-old.

I don't think I'd brave camping with a 7 month old, but then I'm not really a camping girl with kids of any age! It sounds like y'all had a good time.

Looks like you found some cute stuff! My husband and I used to do a lot of camping but stopped when the children arrived. We keep saying next year......you're pretty brave to camp with a seven month old!

We've been wanting to get up to Williston Lake and see the Bennet Dam. Glad to hear it's worth the trip!

I'm so glad you are back Angie. I really missed your post. Okay so first of all I love absolutely everything you found. Especially the egg cups. I hate admiting another collection but I kind of collect egg cups too. Actually I need to think about if there is anything I don't collect. Well I don't collect anything Nascar so there's one. I have never heard of Laura Secord so I'm going to go look that one up. I'm also sorry to hear you spend so much time on your own. I hope you have a great community of other mamas for support. I have a week away from dh coming up and I'm dreading it. Hugs to you for doing it mostly on your own. So glad you are back!

Welcome back you brave woman! Sounds like you had a good time anyways. I can relate to the hub being gone so much...earlier in our marriage my hub worked out of town all week, but came home each weekend, and that was when the kids were babies...it was rough at times for sure! It looks like you didn't do too bad on the thrifting, you know I am drooling over those transfers!
Smiles, Karen
