Enough about me, let's blag about you. . .

That's right, I said blag: to blog and to brag. You heard it first here, folks. Hubby always says blogworld is a Mutual Appreciation Society and so let's mutually appreciate some worthy friends. . .

My friend Erin's family just tested portable cribs for a feature in the New York Times! She and I were missionaries together in Madagascar oh so long ago. She and her hubby, Dave, are the most outdoorsy people I know. . . (the same Erin and Dave that rescued a skier out of an avalanche a couple years ago, dug him out, saved his life and were on talk shows all over the country, including the Today Show!) Four kids later, they still spend as much time as possible enjoying the great outdoors, so when the NY Times gear critic asked if anyone knew a family that might be camping this time of year with kids, the Hughes names were given. Of course, I'd hero-worship them anyway because they are just that cool, but anyone who's been on the Today Show and in the New York Times are stars in my book. . . I'd take their word on portable cribs any day. See the full slideshow and portable crib review here.

That's pretty crazy! And pretty cool that you have hero-friends. I'm sure I could get the word out around here for camping gear like that. There's a lot of camper-families that have little kids. I like the blag.

My favorite one was the last one because of the different shape, the fact that she said it was easy, and the cost! We are dying to be camping right now, and we have to break in Jack sometime...

oh man, you beat me to it! I was gonna blag about them but you did such an awesome job of it! Doesn't it make you want to go camping?

That is too great! And thanks for the thanks. I didn't do A THING! I owe you a sandwich. Maybe we ought to go try some good eatin' Russian cusine. Not possible...
