Instead of moving into a bigger house, for the next three days at least, we are moving our three children and our two yippy dogs into a much, much smaller house. Like, say, 8 feet by 6 feet. Yes, you guessed it, we are going camping for the first time as a family of five; seven if you count the mutts. And, by the looks of the mountain of gear that is piled up by the door, waiting to be packed into the minivan, we are taking most of our stuff with us. We even put the car-top carrier that came with the van back on the roof so we can bring more stuff with us. It is sure to be crammed full, and we'll need every square inch of the inside of the van, too. I can envision our dogs vying to sit on my shoulders as I drive down the road, because they can't find a place to sit. It's safe to put dogs in a car-top carrier, right? I think I just found a reason to leave it on all the time!
