Sometimes I have ideas. Sometimes they are really good, but other times, after they come out of my mouth, I wonder what the heck I was thinking.
Today was one of those times.
Me: Wouldn't it be fun to go to Utah?
Gunner: That's a GREAT idea.
Me: We could camp I guess.
Gunner: Even better, I love camping. Think of all the fun the kids will have.
Me: Okay, I'll try to find a place.
Later after I had exhausted my research, I found two campsites located at the same place.
There are great reviews.
It's a beautiful location.
The catch??? There are no showers!!!
Gunner assures me that he will arrange a way for me to shower.
I told the kids that I had big and exciting news.
The girls started jumping around--"Are you having another baby???"
I was speechless, no way, no how.
When I finally gave them the "good news", Abs was jumping up and down. Em, not so much.
Em: How is this going to be fun? Are we borrowing Oma and Opa's RV?
Me: No, we're going to stay in tents!
Me: Yep, and we don't have to shower the entire time we are gone!
Abs: This is a dream come true.
Em: You would think being dirty was a lot of fun. Some of us have standards.
I could feel the love between them....almost...not really. I did tell Em should could share a tent with her sister since we will have to find another tent or something as we only have a two person tent.
We will get back just in time to wash clothes, shower, and head out of town to my 4th triathlon of the season. From there it's straight to Florida, and then back in time for block leave to end.
Whew. A whirlwind. Memories in the making. Hopefully enough memories to last us for a year apart, and pictures to tell the stories.
