I spent Wednesday at General RV having our problem with the hot water heater repaired. It turned out to be a $20 part that had gone bad. While I was there I bought the 50 amp extension cord I talked about in my last post and a round container to store it in, along with some silicone spray for the jacks. The carbon monoxide detector came in. It is smaller than the old one, but I think we can make it work. I’ll have to talk to my handyman son, Kevin.
From General RV we went to Proud Lake State Park which is very close to them (maybe a 10 minute ride). The weather for our stay was exceptionally cool for this time of year. Great campfire weather though, which we took advantage of. We stayed in site #6 with 50 amps. We have had this site before and like it, even though it is a hike to the public restrooms and showers. I did remember to take some pictures this time.
Site #6 – Proud Lake State Park Recreation Area
While the grown-ups went canoeing, which is a main attraction for this campground, grandpa and grandma babysat. Although, I was told by Xavier that they are not babies and therefore we are not babysitters. Out of the mouth of a 4-year-old.
Grandpa kept the 3 of them entertained the entire afternoon with play dough, a favorite activity they ask to do often.
When the adults got back from canoeing, Aunt Tina took her turn at the play dough table.
It was then time for the kiddos to get rid of some energy. Daddy helped with that by running up and down the hill, looking for pine cones and just having a good time.
Daddy bought them each a “grabber” that they had fun using to pick up anything in sight; rocks, pinecones, dirt, paper bags, you name it.
I think everyone enjoyed themselves. We sat by the campfire, ate pie iron pizzas, roasted marshmallows, had s’mores, played games and watched the University of Michigan football game on our outdoor TV. Tis the season. The cooler weather wasn’t going to deter us from having a good time.
Now it’s time to finish cleaning out our S & B house before the closing. Only 11 more days until we officially become full-time RV’ers. Can’t wait.
Until next time,
