Daddy Is One Happy Camper

Update on the camper sitch...

I know - I'm too old to say 'sitch', but sometimes I still throw it in.



Kate - helping Daddy inspect everything




M to the Izz-A, completely in his element and...





...me, trying to be in mine.

Well folks, the decision had to be made.

Here's a hint:



Now, the question is: Where should we go?

Do you know of any cool places to visit, camp-style?

We'd love to hear your ideas!

How fun! Not sure what part of GA your in, but TN has some great state parks. We went there a lot as kids. I'm sure ya'll will have fun trying lots of places out.

*BTW, at least your hubs like to camp in style. Morgan would rather trow up a tent and rough it (which is what we will be doing this weekend). Ah, the things we do for the ones we love!

Kate's hair is getting so long...she is just too cute!!

You should make a trip up to NC to see the Linville Gorge and Caverns and Grandfather Mountain. Plus think of the tailgating you could do with that thing!

And I love when you take pictures when driving. Talk about action shot!

Hi! Camping is sooo much fun! Dale Hollow Lake in TN has some beau-T-ful camp/RV sites. www.dalehollowlake.com

I'm in Jacksonville & we've camped a lot at Fort Clinch. Nice camp ground areas & there's beach front camping & "wilderness" camping.

TN is all I can really think of..

That first picture of kate is so freaking cute! I'm not much of a camper, RV or not, so no suggestions from me. Sorry!

Bridget said...

Come out to California!!!! We have some great beach camp spots:) We can all camp together...my husband is so into camping.(like yours) I on the other hand have to light candles and put up flowers in our trailer haha...
Kate's going to love it, my kids love camping. I keep clothes and everything already in the trailer that way if we go somewhere last min we can just pick up and go because everything is already packed! Have fun!

New England Girl said...

Your little girl is SO precious. Looks like she had an awesome time helping Daddy out! And congrats on the new purchase. :)

I say head up to TN/NC... just around the Smoky Mtns. There are so many awesome spots to camp around there, plus there are so many things to do. You'd have a blast! Or head to the Outer Banks of NC. The beach is always a good excuse to go camping. :)

Where to go... where to go...

I'd recommend Smoky Mountains too - so much fun - beautiful camping area in the mountains!!!

That first picture of Kate - with attitude - is totally adorable!

We are taking a pop camper to Destin and Pensacola in a few weeks. There is an AWESOME camp site in Henderson State Park...check it out...it's right on the beach!

Kerri said...

Love the first picture of Kate! Too dang cute...also the Bryn Mawr in St Augustine...yeah the name is jacked up, but it is right on the beach!

JAMIE GRAY said...

She is seriously one of the most adorable little girls ever!!! :)

Cindy said...

How fun. I don't have any suggestions for you, but I'm pretty sure they sell books that will detail campsites around. Have fun!!

Ooh ooh!!! You guys can always come up to see us! (But seriously you don't need the camper. The house is certainly big enough for you guys to stay in it with us!) While you're off from school, Hollie, you guys should try and come up for a few days. Would love to have you!!

That first pic of Kate is adorable and priceless! Check out Jellystone Park! They have a water park there too. Kate would love it, and so would I! Here's the link:

I actually work for the FL park system, I can mail you out a package with all the State Parks that you can camp out - I also have a book that has all the private places you can camp. There are some really beautiful (fully equiped) parks.....and a lot of the parks have springs. Let me know if you want me to send you one.

Angela said...

I recommend Vogel State Park in Blairsville, GA. My family went there almost ever summer when I was growing up, and it is absolutely beautiful! There are several waterfalls nearby that you can hike or drive to, but it's not so far from town that you can't get there pretty quickly if you have an emergency...like your straightener breaks or something :)

My parents have a camper. They love to take it anywhere and everywhere. They usually make a trip to the gulf coast once a year. Last year they did a 2 week journey from OK to Oregon. Can't wait to hear all about your adventures.

Charis said...

Looks like fun! I can't believe how big Kate looks lately! She's growing each time you post! (love the hair)

RCaitlin said...

I love that blue bracelet you're wearing! Don't know of any good places to camp but good luck!
