A Charlotte and Abby weekend

Codorus State Park, Hanover, PA

We are in our last day here at Codorus. Tomorrow we head to NJ to Camp Driveway.

The last several days was spent playing with the granddaughters.   Charlotte had 1/2 day of school on Thursday and was off on Friday.    We picked both girls up on Thursday afternoon at their school and daycare.

One of the things we miss the most from this area is our morning coffee from WAWA, a convenience store like none other.  So on Friday we headed to Lancaster to get that coffee.  Oh yea, Lancaster is a more than an hours drive from Hanover but it was worth it.   The only fast-food restaurant the girls can eat at is Chick Fil-et as they have grilled chicken nuggets (no gluten).    They also offer fresh fruit as a side instead of french fries.  So lunch at Chick Fil-et it was.  

On Saturday Charlotte had tennis lessons at the library next to her school.   We met her Mom there.  While Amy and I watched Charlotte practice Len took Abby to the playground at the school.

Charlotte at tennis.  The pictures came out really dark even with good lighting in the gym and my flash on.  Don't know what this problem was.

Meanwhile Abby was outside doing her athletic thing.   She is quite the climber and a fast runner for such a little person.

That night we attempted a campfire.   No luck.  We've had lots of rain here the previous few days.  We bought wood from the camp store that appeared dry but Leonard just could not get it to burn.  In the future we will be prepared and have a fire starter log.

Yesterday early Leonard woke up to some type of stomach upset that kept him in the bathroom for extended lengths of time. 

We took the girls home in the early afternoon.  Amy had started dinner for us but due to Len not feeling like even looking at food, we decided to head back to the campground.   He slept most of the rest of the day.  Later I made turkey sausage and egg burritos for dinner and we called it a night.

This campground has electric only.   We note we are running really low on water even with using the camp's shower house.   Having 60 gallons of water for four people for 7 days takes a whole lot of conserving.

Today looks to be a "sit around and do nothing day".

Keep forgetting to ask, but I would like to get a rack for my rancher hats like Len has in your bedroom.See if he knows a brand or something I could look up on the internet. no rush as we aren't going anywhere for a couple months, you guys need to be thinking of heading south , winter is coming to Pa & NJ. Be safe out there Sam & Donna..

Glad you had some fun with those cutie pies. George is all over Dunkin Donuts coffee, and there aren't too many west of Tennessee we found.
Hope Len feels better soon!

Charlotte looks like she is getting the hang of it. The racket looks as big as she is...hehe
Glad you made lots of wonderful memories with the kids. Safe travels.
