Come camping with us...

By the end of this week you'll feel like you've been camping with us.
Lucky you!
 The juniper trees are covered with berries this time of year.
 View of the valley on the back side of our property.
View of my camp-chair side table. Iced tea in a mason jar,
wrapped with a koozie knitted by my friend, Judy.
And a little bottle of bubbles.
To get a sense of how large these boulders are, look
for my little friend Molly under the center rock.
 Friend's tents scattered around the property.
Sliders cooked on the large grill that our friend Steve welded for us.
There were fire restrictions last weekend so everything was cooked on this grill.
{Thanks, Steve!}
Our friends Dave and Sophia rocked these sliders for us!
Everyone loved them.
 And my brother-in-law, Michael is our breakfast chef.
On the second morning at camp our 3-year-old camper,
Gavin asked, "Where's our breakfast?"
Michael got to work. :o)
Washing dishes can be a challenge, but I'd rather be washing
dishes at camp than at home!
Meet Juni-Bear.
Carved from a juniper tree stump by our friend, Steve.
{Thanks again, Steve!!!}
Another look off the back side of the property at dusk.

ohDeb it all looks so invigorating and soul filling - I can smell the grill and the juniper - but what I love the most is having iced tea in a handmade holder and bubbles next to your chair - bliss

It's just so beautiful,Deb....and looks such fun...that it might even persuade me to go camping if I was there!!

If any of your followers are knitters the "koozy" is 18 stitches by 55 rowns.
Row 1 - K across.
Row 2 - K3, purl, K last 3.
Size 5 needles. Cotton yarn (I like using the variegated yarns to keep them interesting.)
I might add one more row for mason jars as it was a little tight getting it on there. Friend Judy

This looks like so much fun! We typically go camping just once a year, but this year we're going to Alaska with our camping buddies so no tents for us this summer!

Margaret said...

What a fantastic grill! So big and roomy. I bet it makes everything taste extra delicious.

Patty Chatt said...
