About our Rig- Buying an RV

We actually started packing the camper today.  I can’t tell you how exciting it was to put paper plates in a cabinet.  Woo-hoo!  We spent a lot of time searching and were a bit overwhelmed at times when it came to buying an RV.  Anyway, to tell you a little about this rig.  It’s a 2015 Crossroads Elevation, Las Vegas.  We are thinking that it should be PLENTY of room for two adults, two dogs, and a kid. I’m sure I’ll feel different after the first month of living in it!  We picked it up a local and established RV sales lot.   They were awesome.  Low pressure, and low haggling.   I think we got a good deal, and that’s what counts!

So Shiny!!

The whole process was a bit of a whirlwind.  Seriously, the paperwork was so much easier than any car or house we have ever bought.  After only one hour in the office, we owned a new RV, and were scheduled for pick up the next weekend.  The pick-up was the hard part.  The guys there at the RV lot chuckled at us for picking the biggest camper on the lot as first time buyers.  We just laughed uneasily and said something like “Go big or go home”. 

Making Memories

That moment. The moment you look at a photo you have just taken and you are in awe and amusement of what your life has become and is about to be. It is about both the possibilities and memories. I saw that moment when I looked at this picture:


Just a daddy and a little girl doing something silly on a hot summer day. Who cares what they are doing; the point is the relationship. T is guiding our little girl up the latter of the camper for the first time, and she is adamantly telling him she has control of everything. Hard-headed is a gene and it runs strong in our family. Here he is: Flip-flops, shirt off, beer within arm’s reach, and a careful eye. This is the quintessential American dad, and I get to be married to this amazing guy and watch him help grow this smart little girl.
