We had a great time, and the grandchildren were wonderful. My grandson just moved beyond training wheels on his bike, and was a madman around the campgrounds.
My favorite part was the evening around the campfire. I had a couple of pumpkin beers while the kids made s'mores.
The grandkids wanted to tell spooky stories, and some of the stuff they came up with was pretty funny. As an example, there were a couple of stories about Shrek.
They begged me to tell a story, and I read them a couple of pieces of my micro-fiction. This is the first time I've ever read something I've written to anyone. I was kind of nervous, even if they were all family.
The little ones missed the point of the stories. The twelve year old had her mind completely blown. My daughter-in-law was pretty impressed too.
I have to remember to send a copy of Will O' the Wisp to the twelve year old. It's something she would really enjoy.
I had a little bit of operator error with my generators. We had plenty of battery power, and it wasn't a problem. I figured out what I did wrong, and everything worked wonderfully. I have an old fashioned coffee pot, so there was never a risk of doing without. I could have made coffee over the fire with no problems. I was on a roll with the coffee maker and wanted to make it work. Here was the solution until I figured everything out.
I missed a day or two online. If you had a post that I should have seen, feel free to let me know. I went back through my most frequent commenters and visited all their sites. I should feel worse than I do about it. I don't step away often enough, and that family time is precious. I'm back now, and back to work tomorrow too.
