Here we are moving into August and the potential exists for it to be the hottest month of the year although historically the average daily high temperature does start to wane as we move through August and into September. If July was any harbinger of whats to come then it will indeed be hot!
It has been a rather quiet summer so far and we have enjoyed spending time at our RV. We did take two grand kids and their bikes for a 9 day visit and they had a really good time. Their mother wanted to have them enrolled in the day camp offered by Woodhaven and we did enroll them. For $25 each they are occupied from 9AM to 3PM on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. It gave us a bit of a break from entertaining them on their visit. They also spent many hours at the pool (Woodhaven has two pools and our lot is much closer to pool #1 so that is where they went) and even after day camp they wanted to visit the pool.
We also played miniature golf, games at the recreation center, went to the outdoor farmers market, and of course they played 'UNO' with us. I think they had a pretty good time except that we woke them up around 8AM and disturbed their beauty sleep. You see at home they slept till 10 or 10:30 so getting up around 8 was a bit of a shock to them. But they survived!
Being there at Woodhaven Lakes with us was a new experience for them and I think one they will remember for awhile. The biggest hassle for me was the transportation of their bikes. I had never used a bike carrier before so it was a learning experience for me. Very early (within 1 mile from home) the bikes came loose and I had to take them off and re-do the carrier but after that adjustment we had no further incidents with the bikes. I did learn that if you tighten the rack too much it can warp your trunk lid a little bit. See what we do for our grand-kids!
I hope you have been able to enjoy your family this summer and if not you still have time.
