Anyway, they left around 3:30pm Friday and got to the site around 4:30pm. My mom and stepdad were already up there in their big-ass motorhome. Bill didn't want Cassandra to be dependant on grandma and the motorhome, so he chose a spot further down. My stepdad is turning all this property into a subdivision, and one road has been pushed through to where it will intersect with the cross road. Bill decided to set up camp at the end of that road...
Here's the tent smack dab in the middle of Seneca St.
Bill set up an awning in case it rained
The fire pit
Bill used bits of dry wood as well as dryer lint for kindling
Cassandra working the flint
Frying up some bacon for breakfast on Saturday the 4th
The rocks kept tumbling down the bank, and Bill said it sounded like animals tromping through the campsite all night. I was blissfully sleeping in my own bed in my own house, so was not concerned with this in the least.
Cassandra and my mom wondering what they are doing up so early on a Saturday
This is the road they were working on over the weekend.
Coming into the subdivision. You can see the big-ass motorhome directly in front of the green shop building
My stepdad's plan is to build their home on top of the hill. A few trees still had to be cleared. They want to buy a house in town as well, so this smaller house will probably be built next summer, or possibly the summer after that.
My stepbrother, stepdad and Bill unloading my mom's cool new grill. Can't have 4th of July without grilling something :D
It was very hot outside, so my mom's dog, Samantha, tried to get comfortable in the shade...
Maybe this position?
Ahhh, this is IT
My mom grilling our lunch. I highly recommend Costco's Kirkland brand sirloin hamburger patties, along with the Kraft fake cheese slices :D
Heading down to the previous night's campsite where it's nice and cool. It was almost 90 degrees, and we were getting pretty hot.
Kind of like "Where's Waldo", but you have to find Samantha. Can you see her? She's slightly to the lower right of the center of the photo.
The blue thing with hair is Cassandra. The small white horizontal thing on the left is Samantha. Apparantly, they were tired of us, LOL!
