Last week I had the wife take me and one of the grand-son (10 Y.O.) to a State Park in Maine for a couple of nights for a mini-vacation.
She had to work so after taking us up she made some supper while I set up camp and unloaded the truck.
She left and I settle in for what I though was going to be a restfull 3 days after doing campfire wood for campers all the first part of last week.
My step-daughter was to bring the other grand-son (8 Y.O) the next night to stay one night.
The first day with grandson #1 was spent fishing (untangling line - putting yucky worms on - takein yucky fish off - and untangling line...did it mention un-tangling line), hikeing and looking for 2 Geo-Caches.
I did sit for about an hour with the camp-host while the boy ran around the campground.
That night grand-son #2 arrived and after re-arrainging the camper to make room on the top bunk (used as shelf when only 2 people camp) we had supper of steak( that a plastic knife will not cut) and macaroni with tomato sause.
the fire and watch the kids cook mashmelows for about 2 hours then to sleep.
Nest day was a repeat of first day but times two so fishing was spent mostly , You guessed it...untangling line.
Wife picked us up aroud 4PM and we came home and I was neve so tired in my life.
After unloading camper and showers for all and a great supper it was to bed by 8;00.
The next day was spent doing 4 loads of wash and waiting for step-daughter to take the kids home and then I was back at the fire-wood business
Ahhhh time to relax.
