Ruth and I had a little campground work to do, and everyone else kept busy too...
They had dropped off a new BBQ for us to use here at the park. Of course everyone knows that new BBQ's need to be put together. "Some assembly required!". It had sat in it's box on our porch for the past week and I simply hadn't got around to it. So while we were busy doing some campground work, we put Chris and Juan to work as well...
Starting to look like a BBQ.
Hmm. What's next...? When in doubt, read the instructions.
The finished product!
At one point in the day, Ruth and Lindsey took the kids for a walk around the park...

One thing we haven't worried about is our front porch. It's been a kind of a mess with a couple of old couches and pillows that they were going to take to the dump at some point. We came back to a surprise when we found that Chris and Juan had rearranged everything and it turned out that these old couches were actually pretty comfy. And our porch looks pretty good this way! They've got a couple of cigarette burns in them and they're a little worn...but they're fine for out here...
I think we'll leave these old couches right here!
Next time I'm in town, I'll buy a couple of pieces of clear plastic to keep the rain off of them when they're not in use.
After dinner, we made a campfire and sat around outside. Hardly any mosquitoes. Last year at this time when we were up north we were being eaten alive. Much, much better here.
Enjoying an evening campfire.

Looking back to March of 2008, we had driven our motorhome Sherman across Mexico, into the United States, and across to Florida to meet our daughter Lindsey and her husband Justin. They spent a week with us traveling Florida in the motorhome. Great time we had, and we love how this picture depicts that as our favorite header photo from March of 2008...
