Friends, fun and pirates! (Yes…Pirates.)

We started officially full timing this Monday, May 16, 2011. It’s been an adventure to say the least!

We started off at Metamora Hadley State Recreation Area which is close to our house in Davison. That way we can pack, clean and get ready to leave completely without traveling an hour one way just to get to our house! The three days we were out camping it rained almost the entire time! (At least we know that our camper doesn’t leak. Good thing!) However, it was still very beautiful and the few times when the skies did clear up we enjoyed our time even more than if it hadn’t been raining. What a beautiful place!

After Metamora Hadley we then moved our home to our good friends’ house where we are staying two nights. During this time we visited their grandparents where we had a wonderful time learning how to cook some Indian recipes, laughed a ton and have been attacked by pirates! OK, we went and saw Pirates of the Caribbean on Stranger Tides in 3D. The very first showing (at least in our area)!

Well that just about sums up our first week of full time camping besides the fact that mom is no longer working outside of the house.

Next destination, here we come!
