Our Fall 'Gazebo!'

We are all dressed up for fall outside our campsite!

The canopy makes this space more usable for us. Kind of like an extra ROOM!
When cold weather arrives - if it ever DOES! - we can lower the back side for further protection from wind and rain. Right now we leave it open so the air will flow and keep it from being a regular hot house!

I know it looks like I'm setting up for a Fall Festival!

I brought from home one of my favorite fall paintings. I painted it several years ago but I still love looking at it. We bring the canvas in at night and when we're not home.
The RV park is a gated community and has park hosts that drive around on a golf cart keeping watch over things.

But then we have Spider Man on guard as well!
Louis Dean had the bright idea of putting him in charge of the ceramic grill we use so much.

I love getting to see all my fall things!

Our campsite is towards the front of the RV Park - right across from the Rec building
so we get a lot of traffic going by.

It just makes me smile to sit out there after we get 'home' in the evenings.
We've had several other residents stop by and visit.

Just about every afternoon Louis Dean soaks in the hot tub!

He's so cute!!

Then in the evening we sit out enjoying the night sounds.
We're not watching much TV these days. I accidentally programmed it to Spanish channels! Finally changed that and now we get lots of Asian channels!
I did locate NBC and ABC but scrolling through all the others is not easy!!

I enjoy camper evenings. We have all the comforts of home and not as many responsibilities. I still have 'Damage Control' to do every day when I get home. More so on the days he is home alone! Tuesday and Thursday we are BOTH caring for the quads while Amber works so those days are easier on - housework wise!

For the most part at night we simply sit. Then we go to bed.

Not a bad life at all!!

I love how you made a camper such a home...even outside...

Vee said...

It looks great! Just imagine all the smiles that you provide for those driving past. I'd smile. It would make my day.

Love the LD pic - particularly the cute tree growing out of his head! Sounds like the place has good security which is nice. Glad to see you are getting some down time.

Kathy said...

Your fall gazebo is beautiful! How nice that you were able to bring so much from home to make the camper a second home for you. I didn't notice LD's picture until Carole mentioned it. Now it makes me smile to see the tree coming out of the top of LD's head!

Your life sounds so relaxing these days. Good for you!

You have got to be the envy of all the other residents at the RV park!

Dee said...

Do you have other campers stopping by with compliments? You put so much creativity in your decorating. I bet the other camprs around you will start decorating now :)

Wow. When did you find time to get things all decked out for fall? Enjoy!

Diana Ferguson said...

I love all this fall stuff--you've done a great job making it all look so pulled together!!!

Amazing. I can imagine you are the hit of the RV park. We use one of those canopy things as well when we camp. I purchased a really cool screen that goes all the way around ours. It gives you privacy, keeps the sun out and allows the cool breeze to come in. You might like something like that for your gazebo. Have a great day! Sherri

Mom, talk about a home away from home, it's a mini me of Irving. It looks so inviting, glad you & LD are enjoying yourselves!

sounds like a perfect life to me, and i would spend a lot of time in that hot tub. the painting is beautiful, i did not know you paint. really pretty and a cool spider man.

Linda you sure know how to make any place you go comfortable, cozy and home away from home! I love what you've done with your place, it's totally adorable.

Amber's working? Where does she get all of her energy from? Let me guess, like mother like daughter? I say that because I have a daughter who is now 23 and each year which goes by I'm seeing more and more of my traits in her, and truth be told I love it! :-)

LD looks so relaxed, like he's also having the time of his life. You two are perfect for one another, I'm so happy for both of you.

Have a wonderful weekend!
