We got stuck in traffic on the way up on Friday night, which meant we did not arrive until almost sunset. We unloaded the car, went to see what fish Dom had already caught and settled in for the night. We had a fire and watched fireworks right from the porch. It was peaceful and awesome. Getting the kids to sleep that night was a mess. No one wanted to sleep.
The next day, we headed to The Deer Park. The kids were very excited to see the animals. We go to pet minature horses, have birds land on us to eat and saw a Zedonk! (half zebra, half donkey) The kids mined for gold (well Dom did), we rode the train, played at the playground and of course shopped!
(what, you don't eat that for dinner when you go camping?) We saw more fireworks that night and watched a movie while putting the kids to bed. Luckily, it was much easier than the first night.
The final day, we went to the beach and swam in the lake. We go caught in a huge down pouring rain. It was awesome to watch the storm come up the lake towards us. We packed up the cars and headed home in the rain.
It was a fun trip and we cannot wait to do it again soon!
