Our family has a private family campground on a pond in the country. We were invited to stay there and were checking to make sure we could get in and out with the 5th wheel. Connie, Bob, David, Nicholas and I walked down to the camp area. It is lovely, so bucolic with beautiful green hills, fall colors and a small lake. We loved it! Family history was discussed while we walked.
We'll be going out to spend Saturday night and possibly Sunday night. Plus another cousin and her husband will be there Saturday during the day and we'll all have lunch together. On Sunday I'll learn more family history. This time my camera will be charged up and ready to go.
Tuesday we hung out at the 5th wheel which was nice for a change. Throughout the day it rained on and off, but the temperature was about 69 degrees. When it wasn't raining we had our windows open. The rain sounded so nice on the RV roof. Bob remarked we didn't move the truck all day.

Wednesday, we shopped at Costco. My Aunt Flora and Uncle Omar invited us to their home at 2 p.m. where we chatted the afternoon away, had snacks, and looked at photos Aunt Flora had of family history. We loved seeing everyone when they were younger. I had never seen a photo of my dad when he was little, and blonde! Flora also told me my dad's father worked on a freighter on the Great Lakes. I never knew that before either.
Anyway, we had a wonderful time reconnecting with Aunt Flora and Uncle Omar. I have not seen them for six years. While we were sitting at their dining table talking, Mom called. She was able to talk to Aunt Flora too.
Flora and Omar took us out to dinner at Metzger's, a German restaurant in Dexter, Michigan. Their daughter-in-law Mary, grandson Daniel, and Mary's sister Lori joined us. We all got to know each other better over dinner.
