Monday - Our 1st Full Day at Jellystone!

Bria and Cali awoke around 6:30 but stayed in bed to read and play my handheld Yahtzee game which they learned to play yesterday.  They really enjoy it!

By 7:15 we were all up and about and the girls played games while we got ready and made breakfast.  Grandma did her special pancake breakfast and PawPaw got all the fresh fruit ready.  It was a great morning to eat outside.  

After cleaning up, we played some more Uno and then I put on my SAS and we went for a walk around the CG.  It is very large and I think I counted about 80 log cabins that are available for rent throughout the season.  Ken sat at the bouncy area watching the girls while did more walking.

Cali gets so high when bouncing!

Bria did well too!

How about some flips?

By then it was time for the waterpark to open, so we headed back to Wilbur to change into our suits, lather with suntan lotion and go to the water area.  It is such a fun place with so many powerful water guns and cannon like "things" as well as 2 large water slides.  The 4 of us had water battles and the girls had a great time going down the water slides over 25 times.  Ken and I participated some of the time, but we also just enjoyed watching them.

Water squirting and splashing everywhere!

Ken and I were on the bottom "shooting" water on Bria and
Cali.  I think it was a tie!

Right now they might be winning!

We returned to Wilbur for lunch and then it was back to the water area.  After another "fierce" water battle, we decided to play a round of mini golf and then we deserved another ice cream treat.  Ken took the girls back to the waterpark and I went to Wilbur to shower and start prepping for dinner.

Yogi was overseeing our game!

They were back by 5:45 and everyone showered before we had a delicious dinner of grilled chicken and fresh corn on the cob.  We were able to enjoy eating outside.  They also enjoyed playing the ball tossing game I had brought along.

What a great campsite.  So spacious and well shaded!

By then it was 6:45 and time to head to Bingo where the prizes were candy bars.  PawPaw stayed back to clean-up and then joined us later.  Fortunately we won 1 time and the prize was 6 bars of candy!  Of course, we had to try some of them.

The girls wanted to go to do more bouncing, so we watched them until the area was closed down at dusk.  Next activity - a laser hay ride around the park.  It was a fun thing to do and everytime you passed a site where people were outside we all yelled "hay"!  (Get it????)

We were back to Wilbur by 9:30 and as soon as the sofa was made into the girl's bed, we all called it a day.  The girls were asleep almost immediately.  I worked on this blog and then was sooooo ready for a good nights sleep.  It has been a fun day but rather exhausting for the "old folks"!

Looking forward to the arrival of Samantha and Katelyn around 9 AM tomorrow. The 4 cousins will have so much fun together.  Bria and Cali will be leaving after dinner to tomorrow night and Samantha and Katelyn will be with us until Thursday, that way all of them have equal time with Grandma and PawPaw.

We felt fortunate that we didn't get any rain today.  In Lititz they had bad storms with heavy rain.  So glad it missed us!  We were too busy having fun!

Again it is too late to add photos!  I will do that when I am not so tired!!!!!
