Fun week-end at Proud Lake recreation area, a Michigan State Park.  We made reservations for Thursday night through Monday, July 4th.  We were on site #123, which had 50 amps and backed up to woods. It was kind of level with grass and a tree.  We had access to water right across the road.  I liked where the fire pit was located – worked out good for us.  Down side was the beach.  Ugh, black dirt-no sand.  Definitely wouldn’t want to bring the little ones here to swim and play.  But, it is a nice park for fall camping or canoeing (rentals were available).

Thursday night was girls night.  We had Grandpa bring us over and help set up, then it was just one of my granddaughters, Kayleigh who was visiting from out of state and my daughter, Melissa.  We made hobo dinners with s-mores and cherry pies made in a pie iron for dessert.

Friday night we changed it up and had my grandson, Tristan come stay with his cousin and Grandpa.  Pie Iron Pizzas and s-mores were devoured.  We enjoyed waffles for breakfast.  It’s always fun to have family around.

As a side note, the showers were constantly busy so I decided to try our shower out.  I’m so glad I did.  Plenty of room, hot water and just nice having my things right there.

Until next time,
