Here I am back after 3 days.. this weekend was a non computer weekend. We went camping for the first weekend the camp grounds were totally open.

It was an adventure. Mark continues to battle the dizziness, nausea, and he has his leg and lower back issues, he is exhausted and just does not feel really great. Man – if it was me – I would be a royal bitch after all the months he has been going through all this… . He knows his limitations and he tries to adjust by frequent rests.

Jeff and Amanda had asked if we would be able to have the kids on Saturday, as they each had things going on that would not have been conducive for the kids. We said sure…

So they came to the camp ground for the day. 5-19-2012 east coast with the boys for the day 0095-19-2012 east coast with the boys for the day 0025-19-2012 east coast with the boys for the day 006It was a really hot day , we went to the bigger playground , but only stayed about 15 minutes . as the sun would have burned them quickly..even with sun screen.

So we spent quite a bit of the high noon time in the camper. They were really very good, nap time was difficult at first, as Mark had envisioned they would all lie on the queen bed, snuggle and drift off to sleep… well in the actual world… Preston just wanted the portacrib for his own spot…Brandon and Mark tried the queen bed, but Brandon was thinking this was a great time to chat with a very sleepy grandpa… so grandpa came out with me on the patio..and the boys slept in the camper with the AC on for a couple hrs.

Than boys up… 5-19-2012 east coast with the boys for the day 0285-19-2012 east coast with the boys for the day 027grandpa needed a turn for  taking a nap..so I took them to a smaller playground. It was across 3 fields..I figured we could tire them out for their nighttime sleeping..and also give them fresh air…5-19-2012 east coast with the boys for the day 030 So off we went…

It had less equipment to play on, but we found things to do.

They really enjoyed exploring.

As I was watching them do various things Brandon bent down and out of the clear blue picked an aged dandelion- ready to go to seed. and he blew on it. I took the photo quickly as it was like going back in time 26 years ago…

Here is Jeff Jeff blowing dandelion 001at the same age as his son Brandon is now…

I took this with a super telephoto lens.. I do not think he even knew I was taking it…

 

and 26 years later….

 

 

 

 

5-19-2012 east coast with the boys for the day 037here is Brandon with the same passion that Jeff had.

It was a nice day…the time seemed to fly by this weekend. We got up there Friday night, had to do a trip to Home Depot as the camper place forgot to put the PVC plug back in the hot water heater.. so when the water came on..it shot out the side of the camper from the opening.Fortunately they did have the plug sitting in the cubby hole where the cover for the hot water heater is…but when we screwed it in—it leaked…  We were able to get Teflon tape and think the problem is fixed…

Saturday zoomed by..breakfast with Shawn and Pat, picked up the boys, spent the day with them, brought them back, than back to the campsite… ,

Sunday we slept in a little, had cereal on the patio, packed up the camper and came back home and had the unloading the camper, catching up on laundry, chores….than off to work today… So.. I wanted to let you know I am still kicking!!…and this is what I was doingSmile Love to all… Mrs Justa alias Cindy…
