Brooke and Rebecca’s Camping Trip

Wilma and I survived another camping trip with our 10 year old grand daughters this past weekend.

On our way there Thursday evening around 6pm, Wilma noticed they were both resting up for a busy week-end.

They both have been looking forward to this weekend for months now, and I guess the excitement got the best of them.

Friday morning they were up and planning on what all they were going to do prior to getting out of bed.

While “Pa” (that’s what they call me instead of Grandpa) had breakfast cooking outside, they were inside getting dressed and ready to tackle the day.

First on the agenda after breakfast was a fun splash in the outdoor pool. Na-Na (that’s what they call Wilma instead of Grandma) was also there keeping an eye on them. It’s a Resort rule that you must be accompanied by an adult if under 18.

 

 

The rest of the day was spent riding their bikes to and from the store, and arcade. They each were given a set amount of cash from Pa to spend on what ever they wanted. It was funny to watch how they both planned on how much they could spend each day so they wouldn’t run out.

Following a fun filled day was a delicious dinner including a BBQ slow roasted Chicken and corn on the cob.

Just before bed time for Na-Na and Pa, the girls painted a small gift to give to their mom’s.

Then there was Putt-Putt to conquer. And a fine job they did of that as no score was kept, so they were both winners!

The Resort is still in development, adding 300 campsites, cabins, and a water park.

 

The weather was just perfect for a wonderful time with our Grand kids. Angel took the girls home Sunday evening and  with in an hour it started to rain. Perfect timing!

We pulled out around 11:30am Monday morning, stopping at our friends home. Gary and Cheryl live about 25 miles from the Resort, and it was good to visit with them for a few hours. Can’t forget about stopping for an ice cream cone, sugar free of course, on the way home.

Until next time, be safe and God Bless.
