Mennonite Girls Can Camp or…

…glamp.

Glamping: Glamping is a portmanteau of glamorous and camping and describes a style of camping with amenities and, in some cases, resort-style services not usually associated with “traditional” camping.

Dear strung a clothesline between two of our trees out front and I gathered up every apron I own to hang on it along with a welcome sign for four of the Mennonite Girls who would be arriving along with their husbands from British Columbia for our first MGCC RV Resort Camp in our front yard. It was so much fun to see the campers turn into our driveway.

The three with campers/trailers picked their spots and set up their sites. Anneliese and her husband stayed at the nearby Comfort Inn but joined us for all the festivities.

They pulled into our drive shortly after the campers got settled.

Once we had everything set up hands came together for appies. Anneliese threw together a big bowl of guacamole. She also had some spreadable brie with hot jelly for crackers. Bev put out some sugared salmon.

We enjoyed our appetizers out back on the deck and under our sunshade.

Then it was time to fire up the Traeger.

Dear prepared and grilled tri-tip.

Lovella made a Capreze salad. Judy shared some buns. Bev prepared asparagus with garlic and a buttermilk dressing along with Parmesan cheese. It was clear that no one would be hungry on this camp out!

Lovella finished off our meal with piroshky baked in her trailer oven. The meal was a great collaboration and it was delicious. Definitely glamping!

And that was just the end of our first partial day together!

We were full to the brim with good food, good friendship and good fellowship. We said goodnight with plans on breakfast starting at 9 AM Saturday morning.

  1. We were hosted to perfection by Greg and Ellen. Such good times together….. Laughter, good food, meaningful conversations as well as frivolous fun. Add to that all the comforts of home in a beautiful park like yard. We’ll be back for sure.

  2. Oh what a fun time you all had. Food all looks delicious too.
    So many pretty aprons. Do you know I don’t even own one apron!!!

  3. Oh that had to be such a fun time for all! What a great idea for a reunion. You have some gorgeous aprons, girl!

  4. Thank you, again, for opening your home to us! Your generosity and your relaxed manner made for a memorable way of sharing a bit of our lives with each other. I’m so glad to be able to picture where you live now.
