"Camping" is way more funner when you bring indoor plumbing you gize!!!

Dooooods.  My husband hearts to camp.  And I heart to not have to take a walk with a shovel and a cottenelle wipe in the pocket of my hoodie when I gotta go number two.  So my hubby got me one of them tents with a potty!!!!
Is that like the most redneckest photog?  Saweet!  So but I was wanting to push all the buttons and work all the parts before we took it into the wild but our amps or something weren't strong enough on the plug outside to amp it up or whatevs.  So my Dad..who is awesome...way awesome...came over with A: extra pots and pans from their kitchen to be donated to the mobile cabin and B: his madd skillz at fixing anything that ever needs fixed and 3: his willingness to teach stuff to RodTodd and myself as long as we don't try to "get ahead of ourselves" aka touch stuff before he says to.  Which is a lamerz rool btw.  Here's some pictoral documentation of the fixings:

Plzkthanks note..well..more like take my word for it..Dad is wearing his Jeppson reoon shirt from DENVA 2009!!  Which he has almost worn/washed off all the lettering he wears/washes it so much.  But THIS next pic is a total framer for me:

My two favritt men in the whole wide world.  Working together.  RodTodd not doing anything without instruction.  Dads tongue out between his teeth while using a power tool.   ::: single tear :::
So anyway we learned what most of the gadgetty things on it did and immediately RodTodd put in for a Monday off and we drug it to a more appropriate trailerhood:
HEAVEN!!!!!!  Check out how RodTodd's freakin awesome parking job made our views from inside the bestest ever!
EEEK!  River all the way around!  No need for a white noise machine!
Seeeeereeeeeissly!!!! It was so beautiful we would just sit there for like...MINUTES and just watch the river.  But then I'd be all...where's my iPod we need some rawkin tunage!

So I made the little dinette area into a chillaxin bed thing and plugged the iPod into the aux jack thingie and hit the outside speakers to on too in case some of the poor peeps in tents wanted to enjoy some of Tim McGraws Southern Voice album too!  Cuz remember..me ekwals helpy!!!  p.s. that's my Lady Antebellum trucker hat thurr...aint it a dandy?  Sheeeuuuuute.  Oh yeah and that TV swivels in case it's just too much effort to watch TV not in the bedroom.  Cuz I bet I didn't get tired cuz it was the first time we'd takin the hizzy out but after awhile I bet after pushin the button to lower the awning and pushing the button to level the hizzy and pushin the buttons to the other stuff..I will need to go to bed for awhile and watch some TV in the wilderness.  That's why I packed 13 going on 30.  And nemo.
But srsly... these are my favritt things about our new mobile cabin...not in this order:

Words...cannot...describe....it's like I srsly hear angelic music when I look at it.  freelz.
But so then we totally did rill camping type stuff.  Swearz.  Look.
These are all different fishing holes btw.  Amaze gorge.

He Swim slash fishes!!!!
I got all done with New Moon even!!!!  And p.s. YES it DOES end with Edward proposing ya goofs.  It's just not the TOTAL end.  After he proposes or whatever/demands she marry him if he's gonna change her... Jacob goes and rats her out about the motorbike.  Geesh.. You girlers need to read it again or something.  But yeah I totally caught a trophy fishy too!
And then RodTodd was super jealous so he made me carry all my crap back to the burb MYSELF!

Fer rood.  Oh and at one fishing spot I was all comfy with my book nstuff and a windy gust blew my lil umbrella out in the river so I selflessly risked my life to save it...but alas...this is what it looks like now
And this is what my poor LEG looks like now:

if you zoom in you can see my hero..RodTodd...downstream just a fishin away unawares of the heroic disast that just went on.
So you get the idea tho, right?  We didn't just sit inside and watch movies and stuff.  Check it out we even had a real live campfire!
(mostly because we felt we should.  If we are being honest here.  and I am trying to not have to have risk thoughts to have to disclose in group so I have opted to be sorta honest)
And then RodTodd took a hot shower (totally in his swimsuit in case you are a child or are my sister and are grossed out by implied nudity of the RodTodd nature) *I'm fine with disclosing this lie
Scrubbin all the fishguts off... just to go do it all over again
Oh yeah and it rained one of the nights.  Boy were we glad we weren't in a tent!  But then RodTodd's OCD kicked in and he started tapping and counting stuff and doing this:
I heart his OCD btw.  A. Lots.
Then our super friendly miner guy neighbor Ed had to move to a diff campground:
cuz get this lamerz rool!  You can't stay in a campground in the same spot for more than 14 days!!!  Frowny face.
In looking thru the bagillion pics I took I found this one from when we went tent camping:
Don't get me wrong...I had a blast camping the tenty way..but I cannot imagine what kind of series of unfortunate events would have to unfold upon me and make me do the frowny face IRL...that would make me choose this kind of camping now.  Even if I had wi-fi.
So anywayz.  ONE MORE WEEK TILL THE REOOOOOON in MCCALL!!!!  Weeeeeeehaw!!!!  Now I got room on my camera for that funapalooza!  I cannot WAIT to see YOU!!!!!

Lots of stuff to mention but here's all I can think of:

1) I'd love to have Dad in the same town as me for many, many reasons...but this being right up near #1. The tongue, the know-how, the power tools... ::doing heart punch and peace sign to the heavens::

2) That' ain't campin'. That's hoteling near a river. I don't camp the real way either, so I know what I'm talking about here. Are you bringing that motel to the reoon? Cuz that'd be lame cuz it'd be parked way far away and it'd be like you may as well stay in Horseshoe Bend or something. Srsly.

3) My fam needs some bedding. Could you find some for us? Kthanks.

4) That swimming suit is way too modest for it to be yours...what'd you do, steal it off one of your VTs? Buy it specifically for the reoon? Inquiring minds wanna know. Super cute tho...my boobs could never pull it off. I need some SUPPORT yo (AV knows what I'm talkin' bout).

5)I'm currently embroidering you a little 8x10 ditty that says "IF IT'S A RAWKIN'..."

Princess Kimi said...

1) it makes me sooo saddy for you on a regular basis. srsly.

2) I know, right!?! And hecks no. We are stayin in the lodge where da party at! Doyee! Even tho HB is a total destination type resort.

3) Gotcha covered. So does Mom. But we have like at least 4 extra sleeping bags and lots of blankies and pillows we can load you up with. yw.

4) Costco baby. And btw when in hecks have you seen me in a NOT modest swimsuit? Disregard the late 80's early 90's tho. Don't they sell some kind of shadetini to support your girls? p.s. your boobs sound annoying. I'm sure AV understands.

5) Eeeeek! I can't WAIT to velcro it to the door!!!! Crosstitch?

5)purple: what is your kids fave cereal in case they don't want any part of the breakfast casserolle I'm "making" Wednesday a.m.?

write me back, yo.

That thing is bigger than my first apartment!
Sorry I can't make it to the reoon. Give my love to the family.

Princess Kimi said...

If I sick AV and my Dad on you...I guar ran tee you will be coming to the reoon. Ask Landee. And Memz.

and freelz it's bigger than SkyDawggs apartment. We srsly go out there in the yard and watch Lost on netflix every night. I heart that mobile apartment like it has completed some kind of soul hole of mine or something.

Princess Kimi said...

kback. So I tried to rally Dad and AV and they said "we're on it..wait..Uncle who?" but yeah. I will give every1 yer luv.

Princess Kimi said...

p.p.s. Just saw the tally for the reoon. Out of 190 of us 160 will be attending. I don't think I made enough troll doll head pencil toppers for every1! Shux.

Markie23 said...

Wow, that's amazin! Can't wait to hear the stories/see the pics.

Landee said...

The late 80s and early 90s is all I know you from tho! Can't erase that stuff, no matter how hard I try.

I have a couplea shadetinis to support my awesome breastes. But those ones from Costo? That's negatory.

Jenny ESP said...

I had no idea you gize were so RICH!! That's hardly fair. Does that kitchen have an island? Fanski!! Love the ginorm, heavy-duty flusher on the potty. I'm gonna have a sleepover in your trailer someday, only lets leave it in front of your house. I don't want to sleep out in the creepy forest or anything. Not since Blair Witch.

Memzy said...

Is my jealousy showing?

Memzy said...

::pulling down shorts::

I've ALWAYS wanted a "celestial camping" tent. All. Ways. It's like you are being purposeful in my face and stuff. Don't you even KNOW me!!

Jay kay. But srsly, who can I get some bedding from? We's FLYING into town. Actually, scratch that. I can borrow from HotPants prolly but have an early AM flight on Saturday so can you plan a Mickey D's breakfast get together where's you can give her back the dirty sheets I borrowed?

^^Srsly, text me about that kbye

Princess Kimi said...

Jenny...you totally knew we were rich, haven't you seen my ring fhs? Jay kay! They are actually quite reasonable for realz. We had no intention of getting one but then after doin the math (ick!) and just looking at the indoor plumbing a couple thousandteen times..well. Totally justified. And you are welcome to stay in it in our yard any time! Just not for more than 14 days at a time.
Memz, your jealousy is tooooadally peeking out from under your cropped pants slash "shorts"!!! Gotcha covered on operation get dirty peed on sheets and stuff back to HotPants. Check. I will bungee them to my bike, yo!

Princess Kimi said...

Landee, I meant ...doesn't shadetastic sell some kind of shadetini you could wear under ANY tankini? you know. Like their shade shirts go under ANY immodest type teenybopper shirt? Get it? :: gets out dry erase board and assortment of pritty colored markers ::

Princess Kimi said...

P.p.s.r. You could go like "Shadetini, bra, shadetini, tankini" or reverse if you count them in that order. nstuff. I'm sure you could bring layered swimwear back.

Landee said...

RYC: It's not a dimple it's a deformation of a previously perfect face! IT'S LIKE YOU DON'T KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT YOUR FAVORITE NEPHEW OR SOMETHING!!!!! Geez.

Also, I know *someone* who has worn a bra with her swimming suit before but I won't say her name. Not her real name anyway. K, it's AV.

PPPPS: Just got an email this morning that Shade is going outta business. Frowny face. ::buying 11teen shade shirts for future use::

Carol said...

I am ignoring the "talking behind my back about my bra under my tankini" because I know you are just jealous of my coconuts. And seriosly--I've seen another family member (AP) wear a swimming suit without a bra underneath with even bigger coconuts----it totally justifies my position. Now, to comment on so many things:
1. Your dad is truly a super hero but what's with his capri's and why do I look so much like him now?
2. Your camping apartment is to-die for. Love it and wish I had one.
3. Are you sure RoddTodd didn't get his OCD from your Dad? Have you SEEN the stuff he's been doing for the reunion? The man is a maniac.
4. Love you swim suit. That's how I looked at about age 10. sigh
5. Can't wait to see you.

Carol said...

P.S. Should we all take turns posting realtime pictures on our blogs for all those unfortunate people who cannot come to the reunion?

Princess Kimi said...

If you want to AV. My plan was to wait a week and see what you..and them... posted and then post stuffs I felt you left out that needed to be mentioned/photo uploaded/mocked. And those are his "shorts" AV!!!! I mean... doesn't EVERYONE call those "shorts"? srsly tho he makes those himself. If the ends of his pants get so much as a single fray on the hem..presto chango..they become "shorts". ::: fake sign languages to landee "did you know AV could read this? eeek! jay kay!" :::

Landee said...

Oh wait, when I said AV I meant Aunt Vicki! Duh!

Although, to be honest, I don't remember the last time I saw her in a suit. But still, she's who I, er, meant.

::mouthing behind AV while she's busy cooing over Grahammybear "I thought you said you blocked her for her inappropriate comments!"::
