Just a few minutes to take their picture!
So, I can see how this season is going to with the blog....... I'm squeezing this in amongst my paper work at 9:10 pm - and it's only April! The low season!
On the other hand - over the next few months I'm sure we'll have more to share. Right now we are getting the park cleaned up and I rarely take the camera out.
No complaints though - we are still lovin' our house, yard and park.
Within the last week, Derek has begun to mow and weed whack. Here he is at the group site - actually we have three 'pods' for groups. We are expecting our first three groups this weekend!
He mowed our yard as well.
The rest of the photos I took the other night when I realized that all of our flowers are blooming.
Dinner was on but I couldn't resist getting some pictures.
The lilacs have arrived!
Blooms on our crab apple tree.
The yellow flowers of the Oregon Grape I showed a few posts ago.
The flowers in our front yard that finally bloomed. Not what I was expecting - I thought that there were white flowers in there. Can't say I'm crazy about these - anybody know what they are?
A few weeks ago Britt, Cassia and I found this buoy washed up on the shore. Yesterday Derek turned it into a swing for Cassia. That went over well as you can imagine.
And finally I just had to share with you what's happening in our garden. Almost everything I planted a few weeks ago is sprouting - this is the kale. So excited!
Cassia and I did squeeze in a batch of carrot cake cupcakes the other day.
And yes, that's it!
Not much else to show.
We've been cleaning out fire pits, racking sites, cleaning tables, weeding and staining - in addition to looking after our guests. Last weekend we hit a high on Saturday night with 25 campers.
Last week we also hired our fourth and final employee for the summer. Our team is now complete with Derek and I and our four employees. Everyone will be on board by the May long weekend. Two of our employees have never worked at a BC Park before so we'll be busy with training in a few weeks.
We've also made time to empty our trailer of the items that Derek and Cassia brought back from their trip to Chilliwack. It was nice to be reunited with our belongings and fun to show Cassia many items that she hasn't seen before such as our wedding album. Both Derek and I had some of our toys packed away that we have now passed on to her - and my prized smelly sticker collection. I am hoping to get some pictures of those things soon so that I can show them to you as well. Fingers crossed.
Ha! Derek found this ski mask in the trailer and was telling Cassia that sometimes crooks use them. She figured that out pretty quick and became a thief herself making a quick get away with my sewing machine!
