It's a Mini!

Those were Brady's words when he saw Don pulling up on the driveway with our 'new-to-us' camper. It did make me laugh....this boy is used to camping in Grandma and Grandpa's not-so-mini motorhome!

And we're excited about the fun family trips and memories to come, as we become campers! We took it out for our very first 'test' weekend on Friday. I'd like to say we were super adventurous....but I won't lie. We parked at the Winkler Campground. Yup, a whopping 1.4km from our driveway! It's alright, I agree that's a little pathetic - but we needed to get a little trial run in before heading out on holidays.

The boys loved it. The nights were short - and the mornings were much too early, but fun was had! We even weathered a nice thunderstorm on Saturday night!

Pure joy!

Doing 'blackies' and trying to make each one longer than the last!

I like the Strider Bike, that Nate has. I have only ever seen one other one. Where did you pick yours up?

Karen - Jerrod Falk (from Winnipeg) is the distributor in Manitoba. I can FB you his info (I think he's on FB too). Love the strider. Training wheels are of little use (in my humble opinion!) The Strider gives the child the ability to really learn balance and gliding. Highly recommend!!!

Your camper looks great! It was not at all what I pictured - (much more modern!) I'm glad you guys had a good time...and what is up with kids always waking up so early when camping?! Ours always do that!
