They wanted to try camping before they put a lot of money into the equipment needed. Nancy and I give them a lot of credit for renting a pop-up for the six of them. As our son Brian said, “that does not exactly sound like a formula for success – six in a pop-up!!” However, Julie, Steve and the kids are having a blast.
Backdoor neighbors across the main road. By the looks of all the scooters, I don’t think anyone in this group walks anywhere!!
The close quarters of the campground is a non issue to them. They have the beach, the pool, a rented golf cart and lots of sun and heat. To them, that’s why they came to the beach!!We caught up with them at the beach early Wednesday morning and spent a short time watching them enjoy the ocean.
Samantha having shovel problems ;o((I know I can make it work….Maybe this will work better…. not really ;o((OK….Now I’ve got it :0))))
Nancy really should not be in the sun too long. She is on a ‘just in case’ antibiotic and sun is a NO, NO!! So we agreed to meet them back at their camper for dinner.
We brought three large Pizza Hut pizzas, a gallon of sweet tea, a six pack of apple juice, strawberries, watermelon and a dozen cupcakes for Julie’s Birthday Dinner!!
Oh, perhaps we’ve had a little too much sugar!!!!!
Everyone enjoyed the party meal even though we had it outside in the 95 degree heat :o(( The kids just take it in stride!!I went on a golf cart ride with Steve, Andrew, Emily and Samantha.
Daniel stayed back to play a hand held video game and Nancy got a “tour” of their TIGHT quarters;o))
Each afternoon, after playing so hard in the ocean all morning, they all take a rest from the sun and heat. Julie emailed me these next two photos of the kids in their respective room :o)Plenty of room for the boys. However, I think the girls may have already outgrown their room ;o)
Julie and Steve’s room at the other side. This is not our idea of camping. However, I know the grandkids will remember this for a lifetime!!!!
After being offered a bed for the night!!!Yes, we were offered the foldout sofa…this pop-up is rated to sleep 8 people ;o(( It was tough to turn it down ;o)) However, Nancy and I left for home about 7:30pm. They were all going to the rec hall to play BINGO!! We were going back to an air conditioned house. Good for ALL of us :o))
