Well... it's been 7 years that Nate's been on a deer lease. It's been his thing. His hobby. His peaceful time away doing something he enjoys out in nature. I have never even been tempted to go because of the "living accommodations".... BUT.... now that we got a camper that will actually fit us all and also has a toilet... it's time to reconsider? LOL! We decided to take a family adventure out to Daddy's Deer Lease. :) One other exciting part is some our best friends are also on this deer lease and they were going too! Can you say, "Party in the Woods"??? Whoo Hooo!! Daddy was so excited his family was coming! So...you know what that means.... Mama has to pack us all and go to the store! :) We ain't gonna eat "clean" at the deer lease. We gonna eat JUNK! The kind of junk that your son's eyes bout pop out of his head when he sees you bought "cheese wiz"! I mean how can you not love cheese that squirts on a cracker? The funniest thing I bought was BOLOGNA! I think it's been 10-15 years???? My husband... my most adorable husband... couldn't get over that I bought bologna. He was like a giddy kid. He kept saying, "I can't believe you bought bologna!" Then later on....He'd be walkin around smiling in the kitchen saying, "I can't believe you bought bologna.... this is why I married you!" Ha Ha! I'm thinking... Wow, he should have mentioned "bologna" in the marriage vows and I would have bought it every now and then. LOL!
Well.. we ate all the "junk"... partied in the woods... the boys hunted... the girls were girls... the mommies got to relax and tidy up their campers... no snakes, just smores.... great memories... not a lot of sleep because you hear every talk in the sleep, every cough, every coyote howlin in the night... but it's all good! There's lots of laughter and the best part is the "simpleness"... The kids played and imagined and pretended and played in the dirt and the nature God made for us. Dear Lord, please help us keep this "simpleness" alive for our children. What a wonderful and relaxed time we had. Can't wait to make many more memories with my precious family!
