Rainbow Springs State Park - July 4th 2009




Normally we never go anywhere on big holidays. But for this years 4th of July Tim and I decided to take off in the Airstream for a long weekend. We met up with my Mom and stepfather at Rainbow Springs State Park near Dunnellon, Florida. The stress of getting last minute reservations for two campsites in the newly re-opened campground was well worth it. All of the campsites are nicely spaced and have full hook-ups.

We arrived on the third and had a nice dinner that consisted of Big Al's Famous BBQ and Baked Beans. Hahahaha!!! Just kidding . . . don't tell anyone but I tried to pull a fast one and brought Jack's BBQ that we warmed up on the grill. OMG it was soooo good. Oh yeah - another stress point was when the BBQ spilled all over the floor of my truck but I think the details would include bad words. Don't tell anyone about that either.

On Saturday we got up early and had fresh home made waffles before heading out to float two hours down river on inner tubes. When we returned to camp we had a Triple A Happy Hour (AN ALL AFTERNOON'R) with Mom and Papa John and some great friends, Chuck and Michelle, who drove up for an afternoon visit. Also in attendance was my cabana boy who faithfully moved my umbrella for me as the shade changed through out the afternoon. Dinner was provided by mom and was cooked as a team effort by Mom and Tim. Papa John supervised. Roxy and Cousin Stella enjoyed some good doggy time together as well over the holiday weekend.

Sunday morning brought us a smokey start from the previous nights fireworks and campfires. Mom fixed a great breakfast. I cant remember the last time I had biscuits and gravy. Everyone arrived home safe Sunday afternoon and glad to be out of the heat. It was a great weekend of good company and great memories.
