Fun With Grandsons

Three of our grandsons came over yesterday and spent the night with us.  We had loads of fun!  First we went to Atsion State Park, with a picnic lunch.  Then, a swim in the dark cedar water.

Atsion has a very nice little beach, complete with showers, bathrooms, and changing rooms.  Lifeguards, too, which is a big plus in my book.  Five dollars a car gets you in, which is a bargain.  Because the water is naturally dark (from the cedars which leach color into the water) you can only see about a foot into the water.  So Bob and I were extra vigilant watching the kids--if they lost their footing and went under, you would not be able to see them.  Scary! I was glad we had two adults to watch all three.  

We teased the kids and warned them that they had better not annoy anyone or the lifeguards would kick them out! They were really good (whether or not it was because of the warning, we weren't sure!)

After the swim we went back home and had fresh corn on the cob and hot dogs/burgers for dinner with ice cream for dessert.  The boys watched a movie before going to bed.  I think they enjoyed camping out in the newly renovated great room downstairs!

Blueberry pancakes were a hit for breakfast.

All in all, a very fun time with our boys!
