While visiting family this summer, my Dad planned a camp out. Me, my brothers and all our kids spent two days and a night hanging out and enjoying the beautiful weather and scenery. Above is my Dad's cabin. He took two small sheds and connected them. You wouldn't beleive how nice it looks inside. There's a wood stove, small shower, little kitchenette and full size bed. It's partly powered by solar and is so comfy inside. Everything is impeccably tidy and well made. After I saw my Dad's cabin I called my husband and told him, "My Dad is living my dream! He has a tiny house!" If you're familiar with the tiny house movement you know what I mean!
Yes, I even have to show the outhouse! Inside it was perfectly clean. He's thought everything out. It's odorless and composts naturally. The toilet paper is housed inside coffee cans so no spider webs and I imagine it keeps it from getting damp as well. He has even painted a moon and star on the door. A work of outhouse art, me thinks!
My brother brought his camper and a tent for us. Throughout the night our airbed slowly lost air, so I really got the camping experience; rocks poking into my back, sleeping under the stars and a little afraid of bears coming to visit!
My nephew sang us a campfire song on his "Geetar".
My brother and Dad sitting around the campfire. In the morning my brother & sister in law showed us the art of Dutch oven cooking. They made us all want to learn.
The cousins played in the woods the entire second day, we had a hard time getting them to take a break to eat lunch! It was a good time, with lots of sweet memories made.
Until next time...
