New grandson & camping with grandson #1

Grandson #2, Owen Michael, arrived last Tuesday. We picked up grandson #1, Brady Evans, from his day camp and took him to the hospital to see mommy & daddy and meet his new brother.

He spent Tuesday night with us at our home and then Wednesday helped us pack for a camping trip. It was his first time camping without mommy & daddy. The state park campground was about 30 minutes from the hospital, so we could see everyone each day, and daddy picked him up Friday afternoon after getting the others settled at home. He was fantastic with us, although it's tough trying to keep up with a 6-year-old!

We've been so busy helping them get ready for Owen's arrival that this was our first trip of the year, and we were able to stay two more nights. Of course, we got hit with about 2 inches of rain all day Saturday! Just happy that Brady was home and we weren't trying to occupy him on a cool, rainy day.

This was just our third trip in the Z-1 since picking it up in October. All systems are go and I keep thinking of ideas for needs and mods.

Rosie & Tommy,
Brady has camped with us since he was about 8 weeks old, but this was the first "solo" for him. He had a blast; we did, too, with a side of exhaustion thrown in! We had a lot of things planned and had bought some new craft supplies so we were sure to be able to fill the time.

It turned out that we didn't need much of the new things. He was overjoyed to be able to ride his bike up and down the road in front of our site (I reserved a site on one of the less traveled roads) and wanted to spend a lot of time at the beach, even though the lake was closed to swimming our first day there.

Your granddaughter will probably have a ball during her special time with you. You may need some extra caffeine, though! I know I did.

Congrats on new grandson. I bet camping with the little guy was fun. We're planning a camping trip with our 2 year old grandson for the end of July. Although he has camped with his mom and dad and us, this will be his first solo trip. He can't wait to sleep in the "big" camper.
