NY Striploin steaks, Prawns, Scallops, Béarnaise Sauce, with BBQ baked potatoes, carrots and onions. That is some serious camping food.
We had my Mom aka Gramma and Poppop out for Gramma’s birthday supper. They don’t go more than 3 or 4 days without seeing Andrew normally and it had been 7 days.
Here is Traci relaxing in the sun before the festivities!Andrew was still napping when they arrived so I went in and woke him up. I was tickling him, whispering to him, doing all manners of things to wake him up and nothing was working until I said “Gramma and Poppop are here”. Well, he sat bolt upright in bed and shot out of the camper like his pants were on fire.
We had a GREAT party for Gramma! We went for walks and had the fantastic dinner described above, Traci had made a cake yesterday to mark the occasion today! This was a first for her in the camper and it turned out great. Then Gramma and Andrew opened presents and then everyone got giftbags that Traci had made up. My-oh-my have parties changed since Andrew came along. Picture me and my dad in the middle of the campsite launching little mini-paratroopers into the air and tossing a foam airplane around. HAHA, the best part is, it is all TOTALLY FUN! We adults have forgotten so much about simple fun things, haven’t we?
Nakiska is the site of the alpine events for the 88 Winter Olympics. I was here 21 years ago during the Olympics and what fun it was! It seems just a bit different now, in the summer, but we are probably going to bring Andrew here to learn how to ski. They have a pretty good ski school and it isn’t ever that crowded AND it is really close to home.
That was pretty much it for the day. We have been getting lazier and lazier as our vacation has continued, but our days are numbered now as we only have 1 more full day left. We should get out there and do something, right?… well….. maybe not. Maybe just relaxing is the order of the day tomorrow too!
