The family visitors are packing the van as I write this and we are ready for some peace and relaxation.
When they arrived Monday evening I had a big pot of spaghetti sauce with meatballs and sausage waiting. On tuesday morning, Leon accompanied them to Misquamicut Beach where the kids had a great time and they all ate seafood dinners at a restaurant on the beach.
Sisterinlaw and the kids went to an amusement park on Wednesday after I whipped up a breakfast of a dozen and a half scrambled eggs, toast and cereal. Later, Leon and his brother visited a friend with auto parts. (They are both "CarPeople".
Meanwhile I prepared for the evening cookout (burgers, dogs, barbecue pork, potato salad, fresh green bean-from-the-garden salad, green salad, watermelon, strawberries, blueberries and ice cream) for dinner. Today, what must be a "10" for New England weather, we are getting the camper ready for a weekend in New Hampshire at Mountainside Campground, a quasi-campground for gay men. Quasi- because they are only open on weekends and they aren't set up for electric/water/sewer hook-ups. They do have RV sites, tent sites, a guest cabin and a bunkhouse.
It is near our favorite Vermont hang-outs: Harriman Reservoir (the Ledges)

and, of course Rock River. I think we will go to the lake (reservoir) on Saturday because it is nice for swimming and pretty relaxing.
