Quotable Sunday ~ The Great Outdoors




We spent a really great weekend camping in the Rocky Mountain National Forest. This was the first time we'd camped with the kids and they had a blast. It was really fun but I was really happy to get a shower this afternoon!




It always rains on tents. Rainstorms will travel thousands of miles, against prevailing winds for the opportunity to rain on a tent. ~Dave Barry

How is it that one careless match can start a forest fire, but it takes a whole box to start a campfire? ~Author Unknown

Some national parks have long waiting lists for camping reservations. When you have to wait a year to sleep next to a tree, something is wrong. ~George Carlin

    How fun! I wish we had camping friendly weather. Something tells me 100 degree weather + no a/c + a 3 year old will NOT be the time of our lives.
