4th of July Weekend

July 8, 2009

Written Sunday, July 05, 2009

 I hope everyone had a fun 4th of July weekend! I’m sitting in my camper at the resort and thought I would share some of my weekend with my fellow bloggers in the blogosphere. It was a pretty eventful weekend here at the resort, filled with a little of everything for everyone.

Friday the 3rd at noon, the resort fired up the grill on the patio of the clubhouse and served all the favorites like hamburgers, hotdogs, brats, chicken sandwiches and pork chop sandwiches to name a few. Home made potato salad; baked beans and chips were some of the sides to choose from. A pretty mean game of kickball open to all ages was held in one of the large fields, a kids coloring contest and kids bingo was held in the clubhouse. Hayrack rides around the resort were from 2-4 and pool races were enjoyed by many in the indoor pool. Karaoke started at 5:30 on the clubhouse patio which is always fun. NO, I didn’t sing and YES I poked fun at the bad singers. Oh come on, you know you do it too! At dusk were you guessed it, FIREWORKS! Along with all of these activities to choose from were the “normal” activities like swimming in either the outdoor or indoor pools, enjoying the hot tub, an 18 hole miniature golf course, tennis, basketball, fishing, paddle boating and sand volleyball to name a few. A little of everything for everyone!

We all woke up here at the resort to some unseasonably cool temperatures and rain on the 4th. We all just made the best of it and waited for the rain to finally stop at about 4pm. An inflatable bounce house for the kids was supposed to be setup but was not due to the rain. The indoor pool and hot tub were of course open all day. There was face painting for the kids in the clubhouse and kids crafts. The patio BBQ was fired up once again but most ate inside their campers or in the clubhouse. A rock band called “FIREWALL” was to play on the patio from 1-4pm but was moved into the clubhouse because of the rain. A watermelon contest was held at 2 for different age categories including adults. The hayrack rides were cancelled as well as the water balloon fights, tug-a-war and nickel dive in the outdoor pool. A Rod Stewart impersonator played in the clubhouse from 7-9pm. This guy REALLY looked and moved like Rod Stewart!! The rain was kind of a drag but we all just made the best of it and had fun anyway!

Today (Sunday) we awoke to nice sunny skies and nice warm July temperatures. Paula, Logan, I and our good friends had breakfast in the resort restaurant. They have all you can eat biscuits and gravy every Sunday and it’s becoming a tradition for us on Sunday mornings. A fishing contest was held for all ages from 10am until noon. Trophies were awarded for the largest and smallest fish caught. Capture the flag and musical chairs were played by the kids in the morning. In the afternoon the kids enjoyed card games in the clubhouse, a scavenger hunt, pool volleyball, bouncing off the walls in the inflatable bounce house and a bicycle parade. The kids brought their bicycles up to the clubhouse patio and decorated them with streamers, balloons and other things. Then they rode through the resort parade style and even threw candy to people sitting outside of their campers.

It was an awesome fun filled weekend enjoyed by all!

I hope all of you enjoyed your 4th of July weekend!

    It probably was Rod Stewart. He gets around and has to take any gig he can book nowadays.

    Happy you had a nice holiday.
