Wow. Has it really been that long???

I can't believe I have not posted on this blog since we left on vacation! It sure has been an busy summer. Between work, kids and the new donut machine, I hardly feel like I have time to anything extra.

Vacation was great. Holiday World was alot of fun and has already made the list of things to do again next year. We stayed in Lake Rudolph in our new tent and that was a good choice as well. They are very family friendly there. Each night there was something fun to do. We watched a movie one night and attended karaoke another.

The campground rents out golf carts. Everyone decorated their golf carts with the most fun decorations and ideas. You could tell that alot of thought had been put into some of the themes. Each evening around dusk, all the carts would line up and parade through the campground. It was such a fun, family friendly place. I can hardly wait til next year. We will be decorating a cart of our own!

The shuttle from the campground to Holiday World ran all day. We never had any problem getting back and forth. It was nice to return to our camp site, have lunch and relax for a bit before returning to the amusement/water park each evening. (not to mention waayyy cheaper than eating in the park every meal). The staff at the park were all very nice and attentive. The lines were longer in the afternoon for the water park, but the wait times were not bad at all.

On Thursday we left Santa Clause IN and drove to Michigan to surprise Danny's parents for the weekend.  Surprise them we did! They were happy to see us coming up the drive and we were able to hang out with extended family as they had planned a campout for the weekend there.

Danny's parents have since been to TN to see us. They spent 3 weeks traveling out west visiting with family and seeing some sights. They arrived here on a Friday evening and stayed until Monday. It has been very nice to be able to spend so much time with them this summer.

I hope to be able to keep the blog up to date. I really like being able to go back and read the older posts. I will be working on updating our donut adventures over on the Grams Mini Donut page so don't forget to check in there as well.
