Memorial Day Weekend May 26-30, 2011

Yeah the beginning of summer…oh wait we live in Florida summer started months ago.

We along with lots of friends are making it a tradition of going to Flamingo Lake RV Resort for the major holidays.  It is close to home, if someone has to work they are still close enough to travel back and forth.  The kids can come visit for the day and go home.

We went out on Thursday night because Brent had to work on Friday, we would rather set up on Thursday then I have all day Friday to play..better then pulling in late Friday evening.

We had Mackenzie on Thursday night and Friday.


Eating lunch before heading to the lake.


Entertaining, Kenz loves these ladies.

This is going to be a long post, it was a long weekend..right?

Well later in the afternoon thunder and lightening started…what a whirlwind few hours.  Mackenzie screamed..she was scared..the dogs barked and barked and paced up and down the rig.  The weather radio would not stop beeping…..Brent was still at work….of course everyone was inside.  I was trying to console Kenz…she finally fell asleep from sheer fear I think.

Not only was it thunder, lightening, and hailed too.  I managed to get some pictures.


The beginning




The end


Roads were flooded for a bit.

Lots of rigs were damaged, broken sky lights, vent covers.  Some electrical surges blew things out.  Thankfully our only damage was to our brittle awning.  It was still usable and we did use it the rest of the summer.  Changed it out right before Labor Day weekend.

Needless to say after the storm…the CafĂ© became very busy. 

If you go back in my blog to around July 2010 you will meet sock monkey..he likes to terrorize the campground.  Well he was having a good time after the storm.

Sock Monkey sure does like to get around..thankfully he made it back home.

The RV Resort always has bands on Holiday weekends..we were at the beach waiting for the band to start.  Grimm White Steed was the band.



Kenz wondering if Mason is going to dance with her.

We camped with the Pye’s. the Baker’s, the Fiacco’s, and the Quintycki’s….and plenty of others we have met there.

Always fun, but then we need a vacation from our vacation.
