Last week we went to the TCT rally. This week we are camping at a huge campground. There are a lot of season sites here where folks have campers set up with decks, sheds, etc.,
Then there are the rest of the sites that are filled with these huge newer fifth wheels and trailers. Talk about feeling like a yellow jellybean in a bowl full of red ones LOL! But the kids are having fun. Got woke up by a season site camper's two big dogs barking their heads off at 6am. Uhhg!
Later they will have bingo so I'll go to that
Here are a couple pics of Daisy set up. We set up the potty-tent and it's great because the bathrooms are really far. Everyone around here has those golf carts to ride around on and I can see why because everything is so far. So the potty-tent has been a life-saver.
All in all, this isn't my style of camping and I look forward to a couple more rallies we'll attend this season and maybe a couple state parks to camp at.
She looks so cute all set up. The daisy pinwheels are a nice touch.
We also have camped in between those huge motor coaches and 5th-wheelers and felt a little bit like a fish out of water. But then the pride set in and we felt great about being so small and less-consuming than the gynormous rigs.

I got a call yesterday afternoon from our trailer repair guy warning us about storms that were coming. Of course I was oblivious! By the time he called and I knew what was happening it was too late to pack up and get the heck out of there so we rode it out. I couldn't sit in the trailer because the whole thing was rocking with the high wind and scared me, so took the kids and went to building shelter.
This was the result. This was taken after hubby and son ran out to take down the flying awning. It also damaged my portable shower/potty tent ): This storm happened so fast there wasn't time to do much of anything except get in somewhere safe.
I'm grateful we didn't have a tornado or hail, but it was a wicked storm for about 30-40 minutes. Needless to say, our mud puddle camping turned into swamp camping. We had mud up to our calves the entire time ):
