Vacation with the grands...Part I-Camping

For the first time ever, Paul and I had Logan and Emmy spend 2 weeks with us this summer. From July 8-23. We had an extremely wonderful experience that I hope the grands will fondly remember too. This post will be photo heavy to say the least. I've decided to break it up since we did so many things and had so many awesome experiences.

When Eric & Jess got here, we celebrated Steve (July 7) and Jessie's (July 9) birthdays with a little cake and ice cream...

Our first adventure was camping.

A camping we will go!
We went to West Branch State Park and I must say, compared to our last camping adventure at Findlay-we were impressed! The water was cleaner (I won't say clean because lakes just aren't clean to me), the bathrooms were great! They were clean and even had front loading washing machines inside! Showers were great too!
Our campsite was wonderful! I couldn't have picked a better site if I'd tried. We were right up against the lake that was accessible by 2 paths from our site.

Emmy and Logan were immediately drawn to the lake to skip stones..

We fished..

We ate good..

We swam..

Paul's dome got some sun!

We disc golfed with these 2 pros...

We showed them what Jiffy Pop is...

We had a grand time! It didn't rain until the last day and we were there from Sunday til Thursday.

A dirty face is a happy face

 So check out this deer...
We were sitting by the fire and heard this loud galloping! Running right though the campsite next to us is this deer! Paul told Emmy to slooowly turn and look to her left. Very cool!

Logan found an Illuminati stone..he was thrilled!

Emmy, the shell queen

West Branch even has tons of games you can borrow..for free! 

s'mores every night

Part II soon. As always....
