Slackin' -n Campin'

Today was a slacking day. stayed in bed til almost 9am. had breakfast at 10am, and just sat around camp. Felt good! Played cards with Kimberly while Em and Amy went for a swim. Only left camp today to go out for a late lunch. Programmed into Lola to find a KFC - and found one in Kenneth Square. After lunch, a stop to the local Big Lot - then back to camp. Enjoyed a trip canoeing up the Brandywine. Saw some nice size trout in the clear water.
After some snack, we enjoyed a magic show provided by the KOA, some TV then bed.

Productive day? No way. But great to be with the girls enjoying the time!

Camping Close to Home - West Chester

Thurday night I was a "bachelor" for the evening, the girls headed off to the West Chester KOA to get an early start to our camping weekend before the Kickoff to RPC's YouthWeek.
After work Friday, I bolted out the door at 5:05pm and headed off down the road, directed by Lola our GPS. Took almost exactly a hour from door to to - and that included a turnaround because of a detour - road closed in Brandywine. The girls jumped right into the car - because we were heading to Longwood Gardens - 15 minutes away - to see an Open Air Concert by one of our favorites - TroutFishing in America . The concert was awesome, rain held off, and as a bonus the girls got to see a little of the gardens and the water and light show that's held at closing. I hadn't realized that they never had been to the gardens - and they definitely want to go back someday during daylight to check it out.
It was odd for me - The girls had already set up camp pretty well - I didn't have much to do when we got back to RoadAbode - except relax. We had our usual Friday Night Pizza, a little TV, and off to bed.
