The Crew

I have to say that I really like my family. I love being a dad and I have the best wife in the whole world. They are the biggest reason why I wanted to start this project, so we can all go on family trips regardless if we have a newborn, are expecting, or any other excuses. I just want to hang out with this crew!

So here's the rundown of my team.

Christy: Today is her birthday and I know she can't wait for next year when I take her in her beautifully restored camper out into the middle of  nowhere. She is my number Client, but my goals aren't too high- I don't need her to fall in love with the camper, I just need her to be able sit and sleep in it without bringing along gallons and gallons of disinfectant gel. She has been a good sport about letting me get out there and get work done on our remodel. Although she would never admit it, she actually walked into the RV last week and couldn't hide that she was starting to catch my vision and was secretly a little excited to see this baby to the finish. Anyways- Happy Birthday Sweetheart, I'll only spend a few hours working this weekend just for you!
Brigitte: She is so funny. She loves to come inside the camper and give me a full rundown of where everyone will be sleeping and sitting and also what furniture needs to be reinstalled and where it all needs to go. She is officially the Interior Designer on this project, although she is on a short leash- the rest of us don't think that pink walls, chairs, bedding, curtains, flooring, etc. would look quite as well as she does. She of course is also the Safety Manager and loves to climb the ladder- hopefully she doesn't ever realize that there is a ladder on the back of the camper. I fear that one day I'll go in the back yard and she and Spencer will be on top of the camper having a tea party.

Spencer: He is my best little helper. Every time I bring him into the camper, my tool bags get emptied and no matter how many tools are available, he almost always finds the sharpest tool that will  most likely impale himself or someone else.You better watch your back too, he loves nothing more than to give his old dad a backhand to the head.

Sweet Benett: I just love having this chubby chubs with me at all times. I like to think he's my little QC Manager (I can't have anyone else who might know better give me an opinion of the quality work that I'm doing- sometimes you just have to make things work). He's quite the trooper- he'll sit in that baby bjorn for hours and just be completely entertained. He does try to grab and scratch everything in reach, but he's a good time- even though most times I end up bleeding from his razor sharp nails.

Well that's the rundown. What a great bunch I get to go home to everyday. I love them so much. Gabe
