Camping at Monte Sano

These are all wonky, but I do not feel like adjusting photos around. We went about 15 minutes from our house up to Monte Sano for the weekend. We are really die hard campers and even came home one time. You know, we needed things. We also went to Walmart, the Huntsville library, and a special place I will show you later. I am adjusting, People! I grew up vacationing in resorts and spent a lot of time at Hilton Head and other luxury places. We didn't camp so I totally understand my teens requests to go to the mall. My 16 year old made some comment about not being seen with us, but .... whatever!

My husband insisted we buy this because our kids could not camp without trying camp food. He is a Marine so he is used to prepackaged, yucky food that "you are grateful for" when living in the Saudi desert for weeks on end. I didn't try it. It is deviled ham. What is deviled? Looks like dog food but some of my kids tried it and won a lot of points with Marine husband. I am still considered a sissy wife.

Why waste your tonge on yuck when this is at the bottom of the mountain? Yes, we went to Krispy Kreme. I am so sorry for you people who don't have a KK near by or especially for those who thing other doughnuts are good. One you go Krispy you never go back. When all the people who visit Destin have to go to the Donut Hole, you know the truth- Krispy Kreme is on the other end and is so much better. We got them hot and they melted in our mouths. So good!

This is how we usually see our son. We didn't have reception so he must be playing games.

King of the Fire. We had people coming to ask us how to get a fire going.

You are a better woman than me. I refuse to camp. But it looks like you had a good time. As for deviled ham, YUCK! But I love Krispy Kreme too. Duncan Donuts doesn't compare. Glad you had a good time in your new camper.

So glad you are enjoying your new camper! I can't wait to see pics if you do any re-modeling of the camper!! Love all the fabric you have been looking at. I love your lights you have hanging on your awning. I have been looking for new lights for our camper and can't find any that I love. I was wondering where you purchased them. Thanks so much!

The mall and KK? I think you might like the campgrounds we're going to try next week. It's more like a resort, with a pool, gym, golf, and massages are available as well. It's pricey, of course, for camping. $38 a night peak season. We're going because my brother is graduating from the Army. It's a place in GA. I can't recall the name right now, though, it's 2:45 a.m.

Christy, so I can wear my Lilly and fit in? And, we didn't actually GO to the mall, the kids just asked to go. We did go to Walmart, though, and the Walmart that is not a super Walmart- just a regular one with a man out front that was digging in the trash can for cans. He came by bike. We saw a lot of homeless people. I was surprised. We went to the library and were an hour early and there were about 5 guys up under the awning/sidewalk area. Then we went back when they opened and Darryl said they were all upstairs on the computer.

There are a lot of homeless people around downtown. You gotta learn the right places to go at the right time.
