We went camping (finally!) Trey has spent nearly every weekend this summer re-doing a 1969 Airstream for our family and we were finally able to camp for Labor Day weekend. We had a blast. We went horseback riding and hiking and made s'mores-- good times.
Trey gutted this old camper and re-built the inside (new floor, beds, foam, counter tops, shelves, etc.) It still isn't totally finished (no plumbing done....yet!) And some of the electrical isn't complete-- but it was camp-able.
We went horseback riding. The big girls got to ride their own horses.
Our house was named "Fun"-- and he was a good horse. Our ride was nearly 3 hours long (with a break in the middle for a cowboy steak dinner) and Lexi was a trooper. She fell asleep twice and nursed twice...backwards on horseback. A new one, even for me!
Gotta love that clear blue sky! (Even though it meant a c.o.l.d. night-- mid 30's!)

Callie recently lost her second front tooth- I love this toothless 1st grade phase!
The beast. We need to work on the outside now. We need to polish it to make it pretty. The research we've done suggest it will take 200 hours of polishing (with an electric polisher!) and 5 separate steps to get that super shiny Airstream finish looking lovely again. Maybe next summer?
Here is a shot of the inside of the Airstream.
Trey built those double bunks for the kids to sleep in-- and the table at the front folds down into our bed.
Behind these beds is a full bathroom (tub, shower, toilet, closet, etc) But we've not hooked up the plumbing just yet. Maybe this fall?
We have a 3 burner cooktop, a fridge and a double sink. We also have the original 8 track player and the radio speakers still work. Awesome.
Looking back the other direction-- he's going to put in another counter top so we have a prep surface opposite the sink.
