    We went to Green Lakes State Park this past weekend, our first trip in our PUP!

    3 PUPs, 1 tent, 9 adults, 5 kids, and 2 dogs. (All of whom were very well behaved, thankyouverymuch!) It was cold (upper 50s during the day, low 40s at night), my daughter learned to jump (kinda), my son cut his first tooth during the night on Friday, we played, we ate too much, we spent a lot of time around the fire, we went for a long walk around the lakes, and we had lots of fun! [:D]

    I didn't get many photos of the PUP, but here are a few of the photos from the trip:

    Ready to go!

    Weeeeee!!! LOL

    Yep, them little ones must have had a hoot! We tented with our daughter when she was little and, for all the trouble we went through, it simply wasn't worth it. She was too young to remember a thing anyway! [LOL]

    Nope, ya did right in choosing a pup! They're not as warm as a log cabin but they sure beat the heck out of sleeping on the cold ground in a tent, especially with kids!

    Sweet lookin' rig and family you've got there, David! Glad you enjoyed yourselves!

    Thanks everyone! My daughter definitely had fun, she is still asking to go sleep in the camper. :)

    It's sad to have to pack it away for winter after using it just once, but it will be nice to have something to look forward to over the winter!

    It's really not that difficult but you'll have to create a free account at an image hosting site like http://photobucket.com

    You'll find instructions explaining how to post pictures here:
