We met both the Ramirez Family and the Abeyta Family our first year of camphosting at Big Meadows back in 2007 and they have both become personal friends of ours. We have visited them at their homes during the years and always enjoy seeing them in our campgrounds each summer.
Charlie and Dawna brought their youngest son, his wife and two children this time around and what a good time they all had!
Teddy and Birdie finally were able to come with their son this time, whom we haven’t see since April when Jim and I went to his house for dinner.
So for two days both families were here at the same time and they know each other, so Jim and I had them all over for dinner at our place.
Jim cooked barbecue chicken and boy did it look good. Yes, we made a lot….too much, actually.
Everyone got real hungry sitting around waiting to eat.
But soon it was done and the spread was laid out.
And look at those happy faces……
The Abeyta’s brought their dog, Cinch, with them. The chipmunks really pestered this Jack Russell. He kept trying to climb up the trees after them.
And I fell in love with Tim’s new puppy, Chaps. Isn’t he adorable?? Who knew a Chihuahua-Pug mix could be so cute!
Soon the 14 day limit came and the Ramirez’s had to leave
Then the weekend ended and The Abeyta’s had leave and go back to work
Happily we will all see each other again during visits this next year. We’ll all be reunited next year at Big Meadows Campground, which will have it’s reconstruction completed and we will be able to reopen it next May.
We so love having friends camp with us during the summer!!!!!!
Remember, you are loved
