Niagara Trip - Day 8 - A day at the campground.

July 27, 2012  Friday

We spent all day at the campground today.  We started with getting pictures with Yogi Bear.  Then we saw that they were making t-shirts in the pavilion, so the boys had to try that.  Then the kids played on the pedal carts before trying out the bouncy pillow (which was too hot on their feet).  After lunch we went to the pool where the kids had a blast going down the slides and getting soaked in various ways.  It was a hot, humid day, so it was perfect for the pool.  We also tried out the miniature golf.  At dinnertime one of Kyrie’s classmates from chiropractic school met up with us since she lives sort of near here.  While Kyrie and Barb caught up I took the kids back to the park and we found out there was bingo going on so we tried that out.  We didn’t win, but it was a lot of fun.  The kids tried out the bouncy pillow again and had more fun this time (except Ella who was too tired and it was really crowded and scary for her).

These "down" days are often some of the most fun.  The pool and water play zone here are pretty awesome for a campground.  I love cooking out and having a fire at night.  It was nice to catch up with Barb whom I haven't seen in 5 years.  Turns out I had other friends in the area but didn't realize it until too late. All in all, it was a very relaxed and fun day. It was nice not to have to break camp and go anywhere.  It was great to catch up on some laundry too. (Thanks, Marc!)

An interview with Jacob and Max:

Now that we are halfway done with our trip, what has been your favorite part?
Jacob:  The mirror maze at Niagara Falls.  Because it’s fun!  What wouldn’t be fun about a mirror maze?
Max:  Going to the playground.

What has been the most surprising part of the trip?
Jacob:  That somebody is coming over tonight.
Max:  That Zoe put rocks in the recycling.

What has been your least favorite part of the trip?
Jacob:  That it’s taking so long to go to the golf course!
Max:  Having to stop Zoe from putting rocks in the recycling.

Do you like sleeping in the RV?
Jacob:  No.  Because it’s so uncomfortable to sleep in the sleeping bag.
Max:  Yes.  Well, it’s mostly like sleeping at home.  So, a little yes and a little no.
