A Taste of Italy

Cheer Peppers it’s Nano Poblano Day 6. Today I have another senryu for you. I am quite sure this doesn’t have anything to do with what we had for dinner. 🙂

Cheers Peppers and loyal followers and new followers. It’s day 4 of Nano Poblano. Today’s post is about one of my favorite things. Camping, camping, camping.

We were recently able to upgrade from a pop up tent trailer to a regular travel trailer.  The benefits of this are many, and the joys of a travel trailer are too numerous to count. 🙂  Don’t get me wrong the tent trailer was a lot of fun too and definitely served it’s purpose.  Lots of great memories were had.  We’re on to new memories now.

We took our maiden voyage to our favorite camping spot Lake Casitas, just to get our feet wet. Then we went again the very next weekend.  We plan to make many fun trips and broaden our camping adventures.  It was a very relaxing couple of weekends that provided some much needed rejuvenation.  We played fun camping games.

We ate wonderful camping food.

We howled at the spooky moon on Halloween.

And our dog got spoiled rotten and didn’t have to eat dog food the whole weekend.

Now it’s back to the grind for a bit, but soon we will be off to a new adventure who knows where.  So what about you?  What are some of your favorite things to do? Have you realized any new dreams lately?

And so it begins…

Proud New Parents
Proud New Parents

Tiny hands and tiny feet

New beginnings soft and sweet

 

Sandy blonde with a touch of red

and sun kissed dew adorn his head

 

A new life embraced by loving hands

with big dreams and future plans

 

A mother’s heart bursts with love

and she hopes it will always be enough

 

To secure an existence happy and bright

and to save her son from undo strife

 

A father’s heart overflows with love and pride

though he’s well versed in the pitfalls of raising new life

 

He’s been down this road time and time again

Standing strong through hardships that have wrecked lesser men

 

Together they LOVE, fears overtaken by JOY

As they welcome to the world their new baby boy.
