 This weekend we are headed to the high places to spend a couple of nights with our entire family. 
You can be sure that we will be sitting around a campfire, roasting marshmallows and laughing.  We are hoping the rain stays away as well as the thunder.  Hubby and I will be trying out our daughter & sil's motor home and will hopefully get a feeling as to whether this is something we'd like to have in the future.  You can be sure this nana will be enjoying snuggling with her grands.  We will be celebrating one grands birthday-Mr.B is turning 8, at the same time we'll be celebrating his grandpa's birthday; yes Mr. B was born on my hubby's birthday. 
I am hoping to visit one of my favorite quilt/gift stores and we will probably stop in and see the Irish Wolfhounds that are always at the Celtic store. 
So this TT, I am thankful for camping trips with loved ones as well as the chance to try a motor home.
I am thankful for daughters and sils that enjoy traveling with us.  I am thankful for the wonder of the mountains and wildlife.
I am thankful for life. 
Blessings to you this day and this weekend...I'll be back with photos.


  1. We have a little heat around here, too, but it's not from a campfire. Ours is from all the 100+ degree days. They just keep coming. Last night the forecast for the next week continued to offer 100-105 days!

    I want to come see you in Colo.!!!!!!!!

  2. Hi Noreen,
    So good to hear from you hon.
    Am glad you still come by, was wondering!!
    What a wonderful thing that you get to go camping with the whole family,
    how fun!! Also neat about the travel home (my brain went blank can't remember the name of it) lol
    Ridiculous, but anyway, we have always wondered what it would be like to travel in one as well. That would be on my bucket list if I had one!! lol

    Hope all goes well, and yall have
    great weather, good eats, good fellowship and tons of fun!!

    Love and Blessings hon, Nellie
    P.S. your doggie is so pretty, and looks so sweet, a bit like Lassie.

  3. Have a fabulous time and take lots of pics!

  4. Noreen, I hope you'll have a wonderful time. We love to camp and of course don't get to go nearly as much as we'd like.
    I will be interested to see what you think of the motorhome.
    We have a nice 5th wheel trailer and we enjoy it very much. We made certain to get one with high axles, making more campgrounds accessible to us.
    Trent and Smalley claim that when a group goes though struggles together, they bond. They said that camping works every time. Ha!

  5. Have a wonderful time Noreen! I can't imagine that you won't enjoy the motor home!!!!

  6. I am soo happy that you all get to take this trip...and a little envious that your whole family gets to go. : ) How wonderful. It seems like that hardly ever works out for all of us. And it would be at the top of my wish list that we could all vaca together if only for a few days...I'd love to try a motorhome too. I will be anxious to hear what you think...and to see your pics....Have a WONDERFUL WONDERFUL time my friend...I will pray for good least no scary thunder, haha. Hugs!!

  7. Hi! Noreen, praying for great wk-end for the family!! Just makes me think of a "smores" wk-end! don't forget the chocolate, and graham crackers to go w/ marshmellows:)!(LOL!:)

  8. can't wait to hear all about will love the motor home...or a is like a hotel room on wheels (o:
    That lightening is what I wrote about on my blog...yikes
    the girls are so cute...i like the idea of a tea party (o:

  9. Oh boy! This sounds like a S'mores experience if ever there was one.

    What is it about high mountain air, the smell of Fir & Pine, and the total darkness of night in the high country that is such a tonic to the soul?


  10. I am so thankful for you, Nor!! And that you get to have a fun weekend with your fam!! Praise God!
    Talk with you soon!
    Love and hugs,

  11. I've been dreading going home to Kentucky next week, and your post and reminds me that I shouldn't feel that way about being with family--Thanks for that!! I hope you've had a great weekend and know that I continue to send prayers for you and Reggie!!
