We have accomplished our very first family camping night in our new camper! We’ve had the camper now sense April (maybe, its been awhile at least) and there have been many, many, many repairs that needed to be done. Due to the absolute steal we got it for off of Craigslist, its okay (we keep telling ourselves). So finally it was “campable” last week!! Due to the excessive heat of 100+ degrees everyday this month, we knew we were kinda foolish to go out but we just couldn’t wait any longer! What better way to test the ac right??
Mike, Brody, Gunner, Trigger and I had SOOOOO much fun! The camper took a bit to cool off, but by the time we went to bed it was a chilling 20 degrees cooler inside then it was outside. We were also one of only 3 other campers at this huge campground, so it was great very quiet and relaxing. We hung out inside mostly because the heat was just horrible. At about 10 pm though it was maybe 90 degrees outside and actually felt kinda nice so Mike and I spent about 2 hours talking, playing games and laughing (exactly what camping is all about!). It was also great to be able to look up at this night sky and gaze at the stars remembering how small we are and how great, awesome and powerful our Lord is. It's truly when I'm camping at night and looking up at the stars is when I feel the closest to Him. It's the reason I LOVE camping so much is because it draws us to much nearer to our Savior! Thank you Father for great nights like these!
We all had such a blast even though we were only out at this park for about 18 hours (so hot out!). Mike and I are so excited for all the family memories/traditions (good and bad) camping will bring our family. Its fun to look at this little pop up we have and think that someday (soon!) it will be too small for the Kaelber crew due to Brod's brother and sisters :) I just love beginning traditions and this is really the first one that isn't just Mike and I. Oh Lord, thank you for the gift of family!
The camper is at the camper place receiving, hopefully, it's last bit of repairs before our big vacation to Colorado Springs in a couple weeks!! We are camping in this great park in the Rockies! It gets even better because my family from Wisconsin will be joining us for the week! We can't wait!
