It was a gorgeous weather-day today, beautiful outside, so there was no way we could persuade the kids away to do anything other than play! Sheri and Neil run the KOA and have a daughter, Ciera, who is almost the same age as Jake. Her school had already finished for the summer so she was around every day and happy to have other kids to play with. They started out by playing with the rabbit and washing her dog and ended up in the pool – I think it would’ve been smarter to start the day by wearing swimsuits really!
They also begged to be allowed to go on the banana bikes. We’ve tended to be pretty frugal on this trip, not spending money on things like bike rentals, saving for bigger excursions and, well, rather unexcitingly, gas money! I said I’d rent one for an hour and they could each have 15 minutes, thankfully Sheri offered to let them each have a bike for about half an hour, which was lovely of her and also made a lot more sense, given that they were different sizes and suited them all to have the correct size. They had a blast, speeding around the pathways, it really looked fun.
