Niagara Trip - Day 3 - A "relaxing" day at the campground.

July 22, 2012  Sunday

Our very narrow and shadeless campsite at Harbortown
Well today we don't have any plans.  Just a whole day to relax, kick back and just enjoy the campground.  No reason to get up early at all.  My day to finally sleep in.  Apparently the kids didn't get that message.  Zoe woke up at 7:00 and everyone woke up with her.  And of course since the kids didn't get enough sleep, everyone was crabby today too.  We still had a good day though.  Kyrie made pancakes on the grill - I don't know how she managed to keep them from falling through!  Then we went to the pool and did some laundry - boy did we get some funny looks!  Just kidding, we did laundry at the laundry room which is next to the pool while we went swimming.  The penguins coming out of the pool shivering should have clued us in to the temperature of the pool, but that didn't stop us.  Once I got past the initial heart attack it was really quite refreshing on such a hot day. 

An adequate pool...just a little cold

It was nice that we could see the playground from our campsite so the boys could play there without us going along

We thought Harbortown would be our favorite campground on this trip, but it turned out to be our least favorite.  It was fine though.  The sites were just too narrow and it had no character. 

THE $3.50 truffle from our stop the day before. It was delicious, but I'm glad we only bought two. It wasn't that special.

After lunch we finally headed over to the go-cart track. Jacob has been begging to ride them ever since we got here two days ago. Jacob rode in one and Max and I took the other. It was a lot of fun. I'd never been on a go-cart before and I was surprised by how fast they went. After that we cooked up some hamburgers and had a quiet night at our campsite. The place was packed for the past two days, but now it's pretty much deserted.

  1. All I can say is that you are amazing. How you have time to write after driving and doing all of the things you do each day truly amazes me.

    I love reading each of these blogs. It makes me feel like I'm right there with you.
