And away we go!

So I called my bestest friend who I love very much to ask her advice on where to go camping alone with the kids. During our chatting she sneakily mentioned she was house sitting for her cousin. Her cousin has 2 kids, a nice big house and a nice big pool in the yard, not to mention central A/C! I jumped at the opportunity to stay in a house instead of a tent and practically begged her to let us come. Kamloops is just a few hours away but so beautiful and very hot. Now for those of you who are curious we collected $156!! This will be just enough for our gas there and back!! Hooray for another vacation!! Remind me to talk to my therapist when I get back about my need to run away from home....

You collected that much with just change?! That's amazing girl! I probably have 5 bucks total! I hope you have a blast on your mini vacation even if it includes 5 kids and no daddy!

Have fun... I would have picked the house over a tent too!!!

Glad you came up with the Xtra $$!!!

I just found your blog from "little bites of heaven." I've scrolled back and read some of your previous posts and love your beautiful family! Congrats on finding all that change and have fun with your escape. I'm also feeling a little claustrophobic at home and am dying to go somewhere. Have fun!
