We will be spending this week at the central California coast. Our friends Peter and Erin are (finally!) getting married next Saturday, so we will be over at the coast helping prepare for the wedding, and hopefully spending plenty of time just hanging out together as a family! This is the only week Brian has off from both school and work, so we’re striving to make the most of it.
We are blessed to have been given the gift of Brian’s grandfather’s old Airstream trailer. Brian and my father have spent the last week essentially gutting and redoing the entire trailer to make it ready to use. It’s an amazing blessing to our family – as I’m sure anyone who’s tried to tent-camp with 3 very small children can attest to. 🙂
Because we will be in a trailer, we’ll be cooking most of our meals – the same as we would if we were home. This helps GREATLY with food costs, as even buying “fun” food (like burgers, hotdogs, steak, etc) is still cheaper (and healthier) when prepared from scratch.
