4th of July

Well, we are off to Branched Oak for Independence Day. We are looking forward to it because we've never been there before. Camper is in the driveway now, sanitized the H2O today for the first time this year, cleaned it up a bit. We'll be chomping at the bit by Thursday morning.

Thats one of the great things about having a camper, when you go to the "Cabin" for the weekend you never know where it will be parked. Post Trip Report next week...

Trip 17 - Fremont State Lakes

We made it back in one piece from Fremont this afternoon. We really had a fun time despite the weather not being the best, but at least it was dry during the day and everyone had a fun time. Pictures for now more dialogue later... (I'm Tired :-) )

Trip 16 - Memorial Day with Family in Wisconsin

We had a BLAST on this trip, as I always do I learned something new too.

William Robert Clements is SO COOL, and his sisters are SO COOL with him, it really was VERY COOL. Notice things are COOL. :-) Seriously we are so proud of Rich and Beth and their new addition. He really kind of digs his Uncle Brad too...

We brought my Dad along on this trip and it was GREAT to spend time with family, we actually had a nice bar-b-que at Rich and Beth's on Friday. It was great to see their new house and all or Beth's family that we haven't seen for a while. They are a fun bunch of people and we had a great time. All of us spent Saturday and Sunday at the Nechonic Lakeside Campground where we were camping out. It is about 2 miles from their house and is a WONDERFUL park, probably the nicest park we have stayed at so far. The only thing that could have made it better is if Corey, Kim and Gaby were there but they were in Switzerland visiting Kim's family so I know they had a great time too.

Neshonic Campground was a bit busy as expected on Memorial Day weekend, actually the park was full. Part of the park is home to full time spots and they also rent golf carts so it was golf cart mania, they even had a golf cart parade throughout the campground complete with candy thrown for the kids, kind of neat but kind of busy, like rush our traffic with golf carts. The amenities at this park are fabulous. Two large swimming pools, hot tub, laundry, basketball courts, volleyball courts, horseshoe pits, you name it they had it. Very pretty and very green. Sophie and Eva had a great time and so did Alyssa, that's the most important thing; the kids having fun. Actually all of us adults did too.

Some highlights include:
  • Seeing Will and all the family
  • Making Peach Surprise
  • Smores by the campfire
  • Swimming
  • The Hot Tub (18 and older please)
  • Blue yummies by the campfire :-)
I mentioned the one lesson learned - NEVER, i repeat, NEVER try to go 170 miles on 169 miles worth of gas. As you can see by the pictures it was a lesson learned. :-)
