The weather was amazing and the scenery was beautiful. It was a little rainy on Thursday when we arrived, but it cleared up on Friday and we were able to enjoy the time outside walking, fishing, and just relaxing. The puppies LOVED IT! They were in heaven - so many leaves and sticks they could eat. They played hard and slept hard. They behaved even better than we expected - we kept them in their kennel a good bit and they were perfectly content, even with us going in and out of the camper. We were used to Sophie having a conniption fit in her kennel if we were nearby. So, it was a blessing that they were so calm - plus, no accidents!! Woohoo!
Will's parents have a Newfoundland puppy - I believe she's about 8 month old and she comes up to my waist! Needless to say, she topples over Sarge and Stella. They played pretty well together...I think Stella really enjoyed Abby. We had to break them up a few times because Abby doesn't realize how big she is, but she was very sweet to my little babies.
Will's brother Brent joined us along with his girlfriend Ally and her little boy Braxton. The camper was definitely full with 6 adults, a 2 year old, a
We ate like kings, as usual. We fried some bacon on the griddle along with eggs and toast one morning, then finished off the bacon and had french toast the second morning. For dinner we grilled burgers, then turtles (a family tradition - hamburger patty topped with potatoes, carrots, celery & onion all wrapped in aluminum foil), and then steaks on the last night. We roasted smores on the campfire at night too!
I truly was a wonderful time. I'm so grateful to have such amazing in-laws - they truly are the best!!
