It seems I’ve been negligent about writing my blog. While all of you were celebrating Father’s Day, we were hauling trash and cleaning bathrooms! LeRoy’s birthday came and went without a lot of notice except for a nice meal at our favorite Mexican restaurant in Woodland Park, but the next morning all the volunteers and staff had seen the notice on Facebook and were upset that they didn’t get a chance to help him celebrate. It’s nice to be appreciated, even if it does require getting older.
One of the things LeRoy enjoys here is that he gets to grill hamburgers almost every Friday noon, when campers are getting ready to leave. Last week, we took the grills and went with the summer staff and most of the volunteers to Colorado Springs to cook for the District Assembly of the Nazarene Church. I think they served about 5o0 people including all of us and we were tired by the time we got home! These three grills can put out a lot of hamburgers!
The queen bee behind the activity is Marilyn Johnson and while she’s usually tossing out instructions, I caught her taking time for a burger. After that, we loaded up the grills and headed back up the hill, taking a welcome Sonic break for ice cream on the way.
Late this week, we heard that our youngest granddaughter Jadelyn has a fractured bone in her foot. We think she just wanted a “stylish” new shoe to wear! At least it won’t keep her from swimming and we hope it heals quickly so she can come see us next month.
Yesterday afternoon, a 45′ charter bus came into the RV park, which is exciting enough, when you see the narrow curving roads through the park. The real excitement was just starting, though, because it dropped off 45 Boys Scouts and about 20 leaders from Denton, TX, here to stay until July 2. The women’s restroom should be a breeze compared to the men’s side! Glad I’m not cleaning it!
