We woke up a little early to take the dogs for a walk. Warren was still sleeping when we snuck out of the tent so we quietly hooked up the dogs and walked to the bathrooms. The cool thing about this park
On the road we started telling Warren about Idiocracy, one of my favorite movies. Then Sandra had a great idea… Let\’s watch it!
I had it on my iPod (and on my iPhone in case of emergency) so we plugged
I started back on my work while Sandra and Warren walked the dogs and went to McDonald\’s to get breakfast. This was supposed to be a slow week but the jobs just kept coming! I guess I can\’t complain,
Everyone had gone to bed before me because I was staying up to get caught up on my work. Sandra was sleeping near the back screen door because that\’s where the cool air was coming in. I went to sleep
We pulled up to Ernie & Karen\’s house and unloaded the car. This was a chance for us to do some laundry as well so we started a load and got ready for bed. The house was very warm so along with finding
After breakfast (2nd breakfast) we sat around and talked while Sandra read her Aunt Karen\’s Memoirs and old photos were passed around. Then it came time for us to go, we were on our way to Chicago to
The reunion was finally over and it was time to pack the FJ back up and start out trip home. We had a quick cereal breakfast and began packing the car. We had to rework our system a bit to make room for
A few of our group said their goodbyes and headed home. The rest of us had a lapse in judgement and headed to the lake for a swim.
The water was cold, really cold. But once you went numb it wasn\’t
20 lbs of potatoes… remember those? Yeah, we still didn\’t get rid of them so we demanded that we were cooking lunch and headed back to the cabin to began cooking. As it turns out our oven was only large
After this many days if getting up early I had to sleep in, I was in need of some make-up sleep. Sandra and her Dad picked up two of her Aunts and her Uncle Ernie (who took us hiking last year, I promise
Dinner was at Club 13 on Highway 13 in Phillips. They don\’t take reservations which is not very smart on their part because we showed up with about 50 people, filling up the restaurant and seriously overwhelming
When we returned to the lake they were putting up tents and setting up games like ladder golf, corn hole and kube. They were also bringing in the food… BBQ Chicken, Cowboy Beans, Potato Salad and other
We woke up and let the pups out to explore, they did their business and sniffed around until Duke suddenly caught a scent and took a 90 degree turn and ran toward a group of 3 deer that had been lying
There was a strong breeze when we lit the fire and the wind helped turn our fire into a blazing inferno in no time. We talked and warmed up by the fire until everyone slowly started to head off to bed
After dinner we walked down to the boat dock to take a look. It was fun seeing all of the old buildings and hearing about what they had been used for. It was also a great time just taking in the scenery
Our next stop was the IGA to pick up bread and lunch meat because Sloppy Joe\’s were what we were told to expect for lunch and Sandra doesn\’t eat beef, so she wanted to be able to make a ham sandwich
We needed to do some laundry and today was a good day for it. All of the reunion activities were scheduled for tomorrow and we weren\’t meeting everyone until lunch time.
Sandra\’s Dad knew where the
At our Wal-Mart stop yesterday I picked up some cinnamon rolls for breakfast. Our VRBO had an oven and there wasn\’t much in town so I thought it would be fun. As it turned out we couldn\’t wait for the
We had quite an adventure so far on our trip with wrong turns, a broken windshield and a missing panel on the FJ, but Sandra\’s cousins were having a much rougher trip from Ohio with their 3 kids. When
Then we headed for Worcester Lake where the reunion was going to take place. The property was privately owned but back in the 30\’s & 40\’s Sam Johnson (oddly of no relation to the family) leased a beach
