summer plans and a winner...

Happy Friday everyone!! I know you all must be looking forward to the weekend as much as I am. However I am looking forward to next weekend even more since it is opening weekend at Pinewood Lodge Campground where we have been seasonal campers for the past 14 years! I thought today for Show and Tell Friday over at My Romantic Home (thanks for hosting Cindy!) I would show you where we live on the weekends and for most of the summer. Our season runs from May 1st til Columbus Day Weekend. A few weekends ago Jim, Jake and I went down to clean up the site. Well they cleaned the outside and I fluffed inside. I brought down all the linens, paper goods and some pantry items. I uncovered all my little accessories and made a list of what I still need. I took some quick photos... Here is our trailer ~ 38' Sandpiper. It is really my little summer cottage. When the awning is raised we have a screen room that we put up and it makes a wonderful porch. I have a pretty white wicker set for it and that is where I love to sit and relax. Unfortunately they have not made a trailer with a shabby interior (hmmm...now that is a job I would love!). I used to be a country cottage girl so this is where some of those accessories ended up. Let's take a peek inside... This cute watering can print used to hang in my kitchen when it was sage green. It goes perfect in my trailer now.
My friend Barbara gave me this lemonade sign. Barbara and her husband Tiny were our first camping friends. They moved down to Florida and we miss them alot. Here is my little kitchen... The trailer has a "bump out" which really gives you alot more space. Here is our dining room and living room... We have an entertainment center... The kids have the front bedroom...You walk through the bathroom... To get to the master bedroom out back... I promise to share some better photos once we get down and settled. Memorial Day weekend is when I usually get my flowers planted. I have lots of pots here and there and put some in the ground around this tree...


Jim's shed...

Look at this great vintage lantern I got recently... This will look great in my screen porch since the cushions for my wicker set are green and yellow. I love having this extra room. We have had many cocktail hour(s) with friends on our porch and it is a great place for us to gather when it rains too. We have made so many great friends over the years. We get together often during the off season. My very good friend Lisa lives in the next town but during the summer she is right across the street... Pinewood Lodge is a great family campground. There is a lake for swimming, kayaking and canoeing. They also have playgrounds, a basketball court, horseshoe pits and a game room. We are so lucky to have been able to give our kids this experience. Thanks Jim!! Do any of you camp? What do you do for the summer? I would love to hear from you!! I would also love to hear from Jeanine over at One Cheap B*tch ~ she is the winner of my giveaway!!! She is one of the most creative people I have met since I have been blogging. Well have a wonderful weekend and on your way to see what everyone else is showing and telling about today make sure you stop by Jeanine's and say congratulations!! Here is a picture of our lake at the campground. Thanks to my friend Lisa's son Matt who is a budding photographer for sharing his photo! Don't forget to tell me about your summer plans!

Wow, that's a nice sized RV! I'm not a camper, so that's about the only way I'd "rough it", LOL!

Have a wonderful weekend!

How fun, such great memories you are creating as well! I think my youngest is old enough now that we could try camping this summer
Have a great weekend!
Take care

My husband's family spends every summer at an RV park on the Central Coast in Australia...we are hoping to someday get our own RV here so we can start making our own family memories on this side if the pond :)

Now that was a very interesting post....I don't really like camping but seeing what you call camping, it would suit me just fine.
Love the idea of being able to go for the weekend throughout the summer.
We will hopefully be going to visit our son in Delaware (he just moved) and doing some genealogy research and taking lots of photos of old burial grounds where some of our family is located.
Thanks for dropping by and leaving your comment....so far you are the only one who mentioned my antique flower frog in the photos.

Thank you for stopping by to see my blog. Yes I love to have mirrors in each room, it brings in more light. I remember going with my Grandparents camping in their little trailer, we had lots of fun. Enjoy.

That's a great trailer. We hope to have a smaller trailer that we can travel with, soon. We want a 26', but like yours with the double bunk, and queen island bed. Looks like a great place to relax and have fun.
Have a great weekend.

What fun! My parents used to have a small trailer that we took to the beach every summer. When they decided to sell it I wanted it so bad but my husband wanted no parts of it. Boohoo.....

Debra@Common Ground said...

We used to camp alot when I was a kid, unfortunately it was in tents...that leaked...and had bugs...and snakes, Soooo that kind of curbed my camping enthusiasm. LOL! You all look like you have a great set up, now if I would have been able to camp like that I may have really enjoyed it. Have fun! Will you still be able to blog or are you really "roughing it"?

Oh that looks like so much fun!!! We used to rent a really rundown cottage in a place called Wasaga beach in Canada when I was in junior high...it was so much fun. We took my boys to the river alot when they were growing up but I would love to take a motorhome vacation!
