The Adventures of the Travelling Tent

Everyone remembers our camping tent I like to set up in the living room?
Well - it is packed and ready for an adventure.
A bloggyland adventure!
Beginning this weekend Wallene and I will be packaging it up and sending it off to it's first new home. That's right - we are going to "Flat Stanley" the tent. If you are a parent or a grandparent then you know what I am talking about. :) [Please google if you don't know the book or the school assignment attached. It is so cool!]

The deal is this: We will send our tent to it's first recipient who can use it however they like - inside, outside, at the park - etc. We just ask that they take good care of it and blog about their adventures on their homepage and linking to the next blogger family that will receive it. Once they are finished having fun with the tent then they may package it up and send it to one of their bloggy friends - and so on and so on and so on. Eventually [hopefully?] it should make it's way home to us.

Get it? YAY! Wallene and I figured since we couldn't go on vacation this summer why not send our tent and make new friends in the process, right?

The first recipient of the Travelling tent is Linda in New Mexico [Olde Baggs and Stuft Shirts] and her special grandkids GK and Ry.

I am very excited about this! Hope you all have a wonderful Thursday.

And Ellen you are definitely on the list - :)

And Teresa you are definitely a choice too, but we know that you have other stuff to do right now [um, yep! Glad Ron is doing better!]

And just for the photo op I ought to send it Linda Vagabonds - but it would take weeks to catch up to you two. Heehee.

Love ya all and I hope this is successful. And with this group, I have no doubt.
