As I have mentioned in previous posts, we’ve been members of the Milwaukee Jaybirds Camping Club since 1981. Since we are the only camphosts at our park, we didn’t feel it was appropriate to ask if we could leave some weekends to go camping with the club.
We were able to join them at the April and May campouts on Saturday just for the day, which was a good alternative. It allowed us to see our friends and not shirk our camphost duties.
This weekend the club came to us. There are ten families camping at our park. We had a wonderful time. Two families came on Thursday so Kevin and I went golfing with Dave and Judy on Friday morning. Then a group of the guys golfed on Friday afternoon and Saturday morning.
We played a game called Gonzo Golf involving tennis balls and hula hoops. It’s really a fun game. Unfortunately, I was so busy having fun this weekend, I forgot to take any pictures :(
Yesterday, our son, Eric, came out for the day to visit for Father’s Day. Since he grew up camping in the club, he knows many of the people. We had a delicious pot-luck supper of bar-b-que ribs. Each month two families act as the food committee. They provide the main meat part of the meal, everyone brings a dish to pass, and split the cost of the meat. You are guaranteed to never leave hungry!
The weekend weather has been fantastic. It’s raining this morning, but should stop soon. It should be a nice day for all of the fathers to celebrate their day.
There has been lots of activity around our bird feeder. We had a new visitor the other day. I don’t know what kind of bird this was. Maybe Judy or someone else out there can help me identify it. I think it might be some type of Thrush.
Happy Father’s Day to all of the fathers out there!
