Back to work

What a wonderful time we had camping.  The new campground was marvelous.  They did all kinds of things for teens and kids.  They divided it up, kids over 13 and kids under.  They had different movies and hayrides for the different ages.  The ones over 13 went on a hayride after dark and they also got to raid the park store.  It was pretty cool.  If you can get your teens to enjoy stuff then you have got it made!  Aiden came out for two days with us and he sure enjoyed himself.  They had these bikes that the kids rented, Kristen rented them everyday cuz she was able to ride Aiden on them.  They were bikes that you sit down in.  I have a picture that I will post of them somewhere.  Saturday night they had a HUGE bonfire.  I mean this thing was BIG.  They had a corn roast too.  Everything was free, well included with your camping which was only 25 a night.  When you have four kids (three teenage boys and one 12 year old girl) that isn't so bad when you get so much free.  All the pop and snacks were free at the movies too.  The movies were free also.  I thought it was a great deal and I throughly enjoyed myself.

Now it is back to business.  Back to work tomorrow.  And the big party for Rob on Saturday.  Mark and I went shopping for that today.  We got all the food and drinks for the party.  Manda and her boyfriend are bringing out the tent tomorrow and we pick up the table and chairs on Saturday morning.  I am happy that this is  the last party for us this year.  I am burned out on parties.

Here are a few pics of Aiden on the slip and slide that he loved so much!  Not sure why they are so small but oh well you can see him.  I will add some pics from camping tomorrow.  I need some sleep to get ready for work tomorrow!

Hope you are having a nice 4th!  That slip and slide looks fun.  I'd do best by the pool though.  LOL

You hit it on the head when you said that success is keeping a teen happy! Glad you tasted some of that victory on your trip.
