The Great Outdoors

Over the past week, I have had the opportunity to spend a great deal of time in the outdoors. Drew's family tradition is to go camping the week of the 4th of July! We always have a blast, eat lots of good food, make smores, play games and catch some sun!

The campfire is one of my favorite things about camping. I love sitting around the campfire with our family and friends, while goofing off, laughing and cracking jokes. We always have a great time and the kids love it too.

The thing i hate about camping: MOSQUITOES!!!!

This is panoramic shot of the group and myself reading books with the girls! They love story time!! I love just hanging out and that makes camping so relaxing!

Of course, I did lots of reading during our camping vacation! I have read several books, so start looking for some book reviews.

Question: Do you like to go camping?

Here is a review of a book I read during our camping trip!

This story starts off with the reader finding out that Elliot has cheated on his wife, Ivy. Already, I'm feeling a wide range of emotions for Ivy. Put in her position, I would have left to gain some perspective too.

As the story unfolds, we see a woman who makes unwise decisions, followed by a resentful attitude towards her marriage, which is understandable. However, Elliott will surprise you. This character has redeemed himself and clearly wanted his marriage to work. He went after Ivy and you'll have to read the story to see if she goes back to him.

This review is my honest opinion. Thanks to the publishers for my copy to review.

I was in your neck of the woods this past week and man oh man do I hate MOSQUITO's! I came back to Denver with enough bites fort the whole STATE! Some of my bites swelled up to the size of Tennis Balls! I have pictures to prove it!

LOVE CAMPING though! (it's just better to camp her in CO where there aren't 5 lakes and humidity breeding BILLIONS of Mosquito's)
