We needed to find a new place to rent and after looking around and finding very few suitable places, Matt suggested camping in our RV for the summer. So we looked around, found a fantastic RV park and pulled in.
Like the couple traveling the country with their two Amazonian parrots. Or the 80-year-old couple with a tent that was manufactured 60 years ago - by the wife - when they first got married and they still use when they take trips. Or the grandparents taking their Hawaiian grandson on a trip through the mainland. Or the little girl whose mother wouldn't leave her trailer so she wanted to live at ours. Or the couple with dachshunds. Or the 50-year old lesbian couple that was so open and willing to answer my children's questions. Or the man who had throat cancer and now speaks like a robot. Or the man blacksmith who travels to different festivals selling his iron works.
Or the family who travels in a school bus painted blue and has kids just the right size and temperament to mesh well with ours. I could go on and on.
We've eaten a lot of ice cream.

We've gone fishing so many times, but the fish do love us if you know what I mean.
Zander's done everything he can to convince us he's one of the dogs.
To that end (and just because I really, really like fresh kale and basil) we sourced out a fantastic little farm to pick fresh veggies since we can't grow our own here.
Hannah put together a dog show for the RV park and talked other campers into participating.
We've only had a few days of bad weather, but we've used those to explore new games that have been big hits.
And one of the best things is this -
We're not planning on being here past the summer, but it's been a wonderful summer.
