Mr. Morning and I are not big on camping, but I know so many people that love going throughout the summer. Mr. can't camp because there are not enough mirrors in the wild, thus he can't check his manly mane - (that head of hair!). I can't camp because I'm severely arachnophobic, but we both love looking at wildlife from the hotel room!
