Our First Day Trip with our Granddaughters

Bob and I took Harper and June on a day trip to my brother’s camp, located near St. Marys PA.   It was the first day trip that we had taken the girls on.  The girls did very well both in the car during the 1 ½ hour ride each way and while at the camp.

We picked up Harper and June at Grandma Chris’s house at 9:00 am on Thursday, July 10, and arrived at the camp around 10:30 am.  June fell asleep for about 30 minutes, while en route camp. Harper stayed awake the entire time. Both girls did well in the car during the ride to camp.

Soon after arriving at camp, we walked to the creek at the end of the camp road.

There were several people at the camp, while we were there. In addition to Jim (my brother) and Judy (Jim’s wife), our niece Emily was there with her daughter Elise.  Emily brought her nephew Kaleb and her niece Anna to camp too.  Friends of the family — John, Amber and Amber’s niece Brooke — were there too.

We had a picnic lunch, outside, right in front of the camp.  The children had peanut butter sandwiches, while the adults ate cold cut sandwiches. A variety of fruit was available, as well as a pasta salad.  The girls ate pretty well.  Harper pretty much finished what was on her plate. June was picky. She liked what was on my plate more than what was on her own plate. Between what was on June’s plate and my plate, June ate well too.

After lunch, the children played some more.  We brought Harper and June’s trikes to camp.  In addition to the girls’ trikes, there were other riding toys and a tire swing as well. Although I have photographs of only Elise and Harper on the tire swing, all three girls enjoyed swinging on the tire.

We departed the camp around 2:00 pm and made it to Harper and June’s house around 3:30 pm. Both girls fell asleep on the way home. Harper was sleeping before we had even left the camp road. She slept all the way home. June slept, too, but she took about 30 minutes before she fell asleep.

It was a great day. I am happy that we were able to take the girls to the camp.

    So cute and they are growing so fast! Isn’t it interesting seeing the different personalities develop. When my twins were small they sometimes switched persona’s often making me look look or sound like I couldn’t tell them apart, the ill’ rascals, lol!
