Birthday Camping

We had a nice vacation taking the grandkids camping at Boyd Lake for my birthday! I had a few things to do on the RV to get ready. Much of the clean up of the mud room was undone when I unloaded several boxes from the wedding trip in February. So it goes.

I also had to fix the light strip that fell off during that trip. I used 3M tape to put the strip holder back up and found that the strip had broken so only a few of the lights were working. I ordered a replacement strip to put on someday.

I had to dewinterize and fill fresh water. The hot water heater drain valve was open and it took me awhile to find that. Of course it needed a good cleaning as well and all the sheets and comforter duvets were washed and dried. Its fun to get ready to camp though. I repacked with chairs and canopy and new sand toys. We also brought inflatable floats but that was wishful thinking.

Although the weather was warm the lake had not been refilled. So the beach was quite a bit further from the water than I had envisioned. We played in the sand but the beach playground was a big draw. It was about 1/4 mile away from our campsite. Kids liked the wagon ride.

We had a lovely campout and really enjoy taking a break in the RV. The wind was calm so we could even have a campfire! And of course the fireside treat of s’mores.
