My family has been coming here since long before I was born. It’s private and quiet, and at night you can see more stars than you’ve ever seen in your life outside of a telescope.
For various reasons, when we go we don’t bring the kids to stay with us the whole weekend. Instead, we leave them with my parents who bring them up for the day on Saturday. We get to sleep a little later, play with our children during the day, and send them home. It’s almost like we’re….um…let me think….grandparents!
This weekend, Jim took full advantage of the situation by telling 6yo she could have a treat whenever she asked.
“Sure, have another cookie!”
About 20 minutes before they all went home for the night, she was hopped up on M & Ms and cookies and was running in circles for the heck of it. As they were getting ready to leave, my mother commented, “Boy, she’s really sugared up!”
Heh, heh, heh.
