Grand Daughters Brooke & Savannah go Camping

The Grand kids look forward to their annual camping trip with “Nana and Pa” every year. This year however Dakota, who just turned 15 declined to go. Brooke and Savannah were the first ones to go this year.

When we found our campsite and started setting up, they were asked if they would like to help. They both got big smiles on their faces and said sure! So their first job was to pound the stakes that hold the sun screen attached to the awning.

I gave encouraging advice so they wouldn’t give up. I sure didn’t want to get on the ground to pound them in! Disappointed smile We took turns pounding in the stakes, first Brooke then Savannah.

Needless to say the ground around those stakes really took a beating! But it wasn’t long and all 5 stakes were pounded into the ground and holding the sun screen. Tomorrow we will work on the firewood. Winking smile

Then it was time for a trip down the “Lazy River” here at the RV Park.

It’s one of the favorite places for the kids. They liked it so well they were there at least 3 hours.

Ready to get wet?



After an afternoon at the Lazy River it was time for supper. We prepared breaded chicken fingers with corn on the cob and green beans. Mmmm Good! Everyone enjoyed their dinner, and as soon as they were done Brooke and Savannah headed for the bridge over the lake to feed the fish. Nana and Pa stayed back and rested.

By 9:30 we were all ready to turn in for the night. Tomorrow promises to be another busy, fun day! Open-mouthed smile

Until next time, be safe and God Bless.


  1. Have a wonderful week with those grands. Cherish every days and make memories happen.

  2. I think there is a built in expiration date on the Grands interest in certain things to do with family:(
