Most of all, the kids enjoy playing with the other kids that have come for the long weekend. This is a very large park and the kids love riding their bikes all over the 266 acres. After that they'd hop on the old hay wagon and ride some more, this time being pulled around by a tractor.
On Saturday and Sunday morning the park had twenty tables
set up for a swap meet. After a great breakfast at the park's Smokehouse
Cafe on Saturday morning, the boys went out to look over the swap meet.
They came back quite excited. They had found a fellow with a new
"Super Soaker 2000" (water gun) for sale for only $10. Since they
cost $30 at the stores, they dug into their money boxes and bought one.
Later, Cheryl and I were at the swap meet and noticed he had two more for
sale, so we bought one more so that both boys would have one. Well,
maybe that wasn't such a good idea. The boys had two smaller, older
water guns, and along with our neighbors the "battle" was on, and on, and
on . . . . .
|We were so busy having fun we didn't even take any pictures,
with one exception.
This young lady was camped next to us. She's almost 10 years old and her name is Suzanne Valentine. She was very intrigued by our adventures and had lots of questions about how we do things and why we decided to travel.
Hi Suzanne. Now you're on the "world- wide-web". We had a great time camped next to you and your family and maybe we'll see you at Soledad again someday. Have you bought yourself some magic rope yet?
