We headed on down the road from Clerbrook to another Thousand Trails campground called Peace River. This campground is quite busy in the winter and is a huge snowbirding destination. Fortunately for us, we were getting there in late March and the crowd was thinning out. In fact, we got a site that appeared to be recently vacated by a seasonal camper (based on the post holes in the ground and the variety of hardware left laying around). I raked the site clean and it cleaned up pretty nicely. The best part- it was fully covered in trees and pretty big!
Played some minigolf:
Watched people hunt for shark teeth:
Planned our summer/fall:
Mandie got all official with her Jamberry selling:
Taped up my skylight (with the theory that it would stop the leak in reality, I just made a leaking eyesore):
Gratuitous grilled food shot:
Easter happened and we went fairly non-traditional. Goodie baskets/bags, egg hunt, and then a trip to Bradenton Beach for the day. Unfortunately, it turned pretty crazy windy and ultimately started kicking the sand up to the point that it was stinging. We finished the day up with trying to fly kites and ironically, for as windy as it was at the beach, there was almost no wind at the campground.
On Monday, the Cropps came out to have dinner with us. The kids got along great. We also started learning how much we have in common and how absolutely opposites we really are; I'm not sure how you can be both...
And while there, they convinced us to head back to the Orlando area and do a couple of days at Disney. ("Convinced" might be a strong word...) Fort Wilderness was sold out, so we landed back at Thousand Trails Orlando. But that'll be another blog entry...
So, we packed up and rolled out. The leaves did a number on my slide toppers!
Yep, that was our 9 days there. Kind of relaxing, really.
