A lot of time was spent climbing up the hill behind our campsite, sitting at the beach, hiking, going for walks, playing in the fort.
The bees were awful when we were there. One morning we had pancakes with syrup and we literally had to watch each bite as we put it in our mouths otherwise we'd eat bees. Since it was early in the trip, later that day Gary & I went to Walmart and found a large screen tent that all of us could take our chairs into and pass the food into there. It worked much better and we actually started enjoying meals.
The boys had a lot of fun climbing up the hill. There was a fort up there that someone had built that of course the boys had to try take apart. Thankfully they couldn't take the whole thing apart as parts were tied together. But they had fun trying.
We also went for a walk around the 4 lakes. We went to the river for a while and the boys had fun throwing rocks into the small river that was there. We continued on and it was quite the feat with Benjamin in the stroller and Gary & Jake carrying him over boulders, rocks, and places where they had to get the stroller up a steep hill. But Benjamin had the time of his life doing this.
Evenings were spent around a propane fire that friends graciously lent us for the camping trip. The boys had fun roasting marshmallows and it was very gezzelig.

|Devon on his trusty dolphin- he actually fell asleep on here in the water one afternoon. He was just laying there and when he looked closer he was fast asleep.|
|Benjamin really enjoyed sitting in the shallow part of the water. It was great because he could scoot in the water on the sand without it hurting.|
