Planes and Birds

The fun this week continues. On Tuesday we brought three grandsons to the lake for a swim and they had a blast. Rob's time with "GrandCamp" ended and Bob and I relaxed for a couple of hours before heading off for dinner with our friends Joan and John, with whom we became close In Las Cruces.  These delightful folks have a summer home in PA, not too far from our summer spot in NJ.  How wonderful! We met at a great Italian BYOB restaurant in Newtown, PA called Piccolo Trattoria and had a really good meal. The planked salmon was marvelous. After dinner we sat outside and chatted some more, unwilling to say goodbye.

On Wednesday, Alex and Adam started their time at "GrandCamp," and we went to the Air Victory Museum in Lumberton to see the airplanes.
Auggie bravely climbed the stairs to make sure his mom was safe, and Adam, too.
In the children's exploration area, Alex got to try on a space helmet, and they both got to play with a box that created an electrical charge when cranked. We stopped in to the museum cafe for an ice cream afterwards, and watched planes take off and land at the airfield next to the museum.

Then it was time to visit the NJ Farm Fair! We saw cows, pigs, sheep, chickens, rabbits, goats, and pigeons. The boys got to pet baby chicks and the 4-H exhibitors were happy to answer questions about their charges. We even saw the Grand Champion Chicken crowned.

We really enjoyed seeing the fancy chickens, some of which looked more like poodles than birds.

After a treat of cotton candy (what fair experience is complete without THAT?) we headed back to the motorhome for some S'mores over the campfire.
