Cousin Dan wanted to try out his new outdoor chef's grill. We were MORE than happy to oblige him by being his guinea pigs.
And WHAT a breakfast feast he made!!! Hashbrowns, sausage, bacon, scrambled eggs, and pancakes. Yum
You can see by our dress that it was a little chilly for al fresco dining, but we didn't mind. Even the "old folks," Uncle Paul and Aunt Virginia, did just fine.

This is a towel with a story. When our kids were small, I purchased a set of 6 bath towels to keep in the camper. I used a blue permanent marker and printed each of our names, one per towel. That was YOUR camping towel, so if you didn't take care of it after YOUR shower, you were out 'o luck.
Now hubby and I still have the towels, full of wear and memories, and we can use whichever one we want.
Yesterday afternoon I was busy blogging in the camper when I heard the "storm warning" alert on weather bug. I clicked over and this is what I saw! Pretty soon I heard the loud clatter of rain on the roof - - - wish I could include that sound with this post.
Sure made for a GREAT nap time.
When I opened the camper door and peeped out - - - THIS is what I saw.
Fortunately it only lasted for a few minutes and we could resume our outdoor activities, taking care to miss the puddles.
The next activity was cooking supper over the camp fire. Hubby showed off his Boy Scout fire making skills.
We did have one enigma to solve - - -this was the only grill we had to use in a fire pit that was wide enough to swallow it whole. Hmmmmm what to do.
We let the first fire burn down to mostly coals, then carefully placed a stack of logs on either side of the coals.
Next we balanced the grill on the log stacks and allowed all the questionables and nasties to burn off of it.
VOILA!!!! A beautiful over the fire grill for our meat and taters.
What a feast we had!!!!
Salads with lots of add-ons
Loaded baked potatoes and steak.
Now it's Monday morning and as soon as I hit "publish" on this post I have to scurry around and get packed up to head home.
It was fun while it lasted - - - - see you down the road!!!
