March 20, 2022-Spring Break 2022

I told Robby this afternoon that this has been a pretty perfect day. There is just something about this camping thing that makes me so darn happy. We were busy with a theme park this morning, and this afternoon we spent relaxing at the campsite. I would live in this camper if I could.

Anyway, we weren't in a hurry too much this morning. We woke up leisurely-though when people realized that their friends were headed to the playground, they were up and out of this camper pretty quickly. Robby started on chocolate chip pancakes and sausage for our breakfast. I had made some pancake mix up before we left the house, but it i had been a while so I had forgotten how much we needed and had to make more.

The Crafts decided that they were going back to the park for a little bit today, so that did spur my people on. We said bye to the Fergies as they drove away, and we were not too far behind them. We were just headed to Silver Dollar City one last time.

We could tell that the crowds were much thicker today. We did, however, still find a pretty decent parking spot. We then went into the park and went straight to Outlaw Run. The kids all got in that line while Robby and I walked around the park looking for lemonade and scoping out any treats that we might want later.

Reagan really wanted a pretzel and even went looking for one today, but we never found her one. On one of our walks, we did find some skillet hash. I am not sure what the proper name was, but it was delicious. Potatoes, sweet potatoes, and sausage cooked to perfection. 

After Outlaw Run, we met up with the Crafts where Graham, Campbell, Keaton and Whitman rode the water ride with some of them. Reagan and Anderson had more sense because they didn't want to walk around with wet shoes. 

Thankfully, they weren't too soaking wet after the ride today. We then moved on to the last few rides of the day-Thunderation for everyone. Then another Thunderation for Keaton and Graham followed by Wildfire for them. Cambpell, Anderson and Whitman opted for Time Traveler as their last ride. Reagan hung out with us eating our skillet hash and our two more loaves of cinnamon bread.

Back at the campsite this afternoon, we mostly all set outside and watched ballgames. I did some napping in my chair while Robby worked on the water and even crawled around on the roof. I did try to stay awake when I saw him on the roof, but it was just so hard. 

Keaton, Graham and I played a game of Phase 10 this afternoon. I did beat them just in time to help Robby start on supper. Tonight we had pizzas made on the blackstone. They were really perfect this time-Robby has perfected them. It is a difficult meal to make though because he wanted to make sure that he didn't burn any.

There was more ballgame watching and dog walking this evening. We eventually did load up with all the kids except Anderson and plus Alyssa to go to Krispy Kreme. We picked up doughnuts, and then ate them outside because Bentley was with us. 

Right now, Robby is making the beds, I'm working on the blog, the girls are all visiting with the Heltz girls, Anderson is showering, Whitman is on his ipad, and Graham is loving on Bentley. Tomorrow we move this party back to Arkansas.
