When we last posted here, we had been setting up at Dakota County’s Lebanon Hills campground. We had a busy 4 days there, complete with 3 granddaughters staying with us for a couple of nights, as well as both of our sons camping nearby. David brought his trailer and Brett and Jen stayed in their tent. It was like a mini family reunion campout. David also brought LaJoy and her 2 kids and a great time was had by all. We learned that a 40 foot motorhome is large enough to feed 11 for breakfast.
As the weekend wound down, we moved to the street in front of Brett’s house for a series of grandparent activities: one soccer practice and one choral concert. Mid-week we moved the motorhome to the cabin where, thankfully, we had an uneventful setup – unlike last year! During a short 3-day stay there, we got the cabin opened up, the sauna stove painted, and the pine needles raked up.
We also got to Duluth for a belated Mother’s Day lunch with Joyce and completed a few things on her “to do” list. Then we returned to Elk River for more grandparent duties: a 3-game hockey tournament and a belated birthday party for Anna. Yet to come during the next few days are another birthday dinner (Pam), another music concert (Sophia), a soccer game (Olivia) and a few medical appointments (us).
By mid-week we will get back to the cabin just in time for the long Memorial Day weekend.
We sure have been busy with a lot of coming and going.
