Grandkids Camping

We just got back from a beautiful fun filled camping trip with our 5 Grandkids. We stayed at Lake Shore Resort, not only for it’s location being close to home, but because it has everything the kids like. The 4 Granddaughters rode with us, Grandson Dakota was arriving a day later with his mom, Tina.

We stopped at a local restaurant for lunch on our way to the Resort. They liked that they could choose either a lunch or a breakfast. After everyone had their fill, we were off for our 1 hour trip to the resort.

We used to stay in our Winnebago on these camping trips. Because of the sleeping arrangements, we could take at the most three of the kids at a time. Since we have left our Winnebago in Florida, we rent a Cabin at the resort. It will sleep 8 so we have plenty of room for all. Plus everyone gets to go on the same trip instead of splitting it up.

So much to do in just 3 days! There’s fishing, swimming, kayaking, campfires, arcade, putt-putt golf, just to name a few.

Can’t forget the “Lazy River” that even the adults enjoy.

The Resort is so big that sometimes it’s easier to just “Load ‘em Up” to get from one side to the other. The new truck really came in handy on this trip.

It’s always been a tradition that we do certain things each trip. One of those is playing Putt-Putt Golf.  However, this trip I really wasn’t up to playing and Wilma sat it out also while we watched the kids having fun.

And always after a game of Putt-Putt there is the annual bowl of ice cream to enjoy.



Another tradition we always do is have a lunch on the beach.

Can’t forget the annual “Watermelon seed spitt’en contest”

IMG_0988 Haley won the farthest seed spitten contest.

And in the evenings we always have a campfire to make S’mores and Campfire Ham N Cheese.
