A Lovely Mother’s Weekend

We chose this weekend to do our annual ‘first’ camping trip – check out the trailers, make sure everything is in working order, and that we’ve got all the basic supplies like toilet paper and pillows.  It made for a wonderful Mother’s Weekend for me.

We went to a campground not too far from home, joined by friends, and friends of friends.

The trailer all set up, and all we had to do was relax:


Our nearby kids joined us for Friday evening dinner:

Saturday we took a few hours out at a nearby tourist town, just wandered around, checked out the antique stores and a quilt shop, where we found nothing we needed but lots we wanted.

Cranberries are a favorite snack and cooking/baking addition in our house, so needed to stop here:

And had some fun with hats06.Hats for sale

Evenings the portable campfires kept us warm:


I hope you all had as great a Mother’s Weekend/Day.



  1. Glad you enjoyed a relaxing Mother's Day Peg! What do you like to bake with cranberries?

    We do a lot of baking in the Redpath kitchen and feature blogs and recipes on our page; if you have any to share please visit us and leave a note.

  2. Sigh.... I would so love to go camping. Sounds like you had a great weekend. I looked for your Magpie Tale, but couldn't find it. Did you post it yet?
