Flashback Fridays

This week, it's a flashback to the very first time we set up Creekside!!  :D

Previously, this lovely field was home to cows and calves that belonged to my brother-in-law.

But, since they had no access to water other than the creek - and the local government was frowning upon cattle in a creek - we sent the cows and calves away.

Which left us with a lovely little field by the creek, perfect for camping!

Three years ago...

We had our Prowler, and a little tent trailer!

This one kills me... see the kids peeking around the corner?  ;)  They were so excited to go camping!

Happy, happy kids.  :)  Lots of great memories so far!

We took the trailers down to Creekside yesterday - we still have the Prowler and the tent trailer, but we added 'Bernice' - a smaller hard-sided trailer that we use either for the kids or for my sister and her kids to come camping!  :)

Hopefully it's a beautiful summer this year... and if it is, I'm sure you can guess where I'll be.  ;)


  1. Yay! I need to come camping this year. Can I use Bernice too, if Heather's not using it some days?

    I definitely want to camp before I go back to work and I'll be all like "Oh man I have to work! Can't go camping those days." Even though it won't be so bad, because I'm not working weekends when I go back.

    Anyways, all this is to say, your children were SO utterly cute at those ages. :D

  2. Yep, you can use Bernice, too. :D

  3. Bernice would make camping seem a bit better.

    I'm all about the walls man.

    However. Camping at Creekside always sounds like fun. I know the day trips I've made we've had a blast.

    BTW, your kids are too too cute.
