Hermann and New Haven camping trip 2017

We have the camper unpacked and we are resting. We had a nice time but unfortunately summer decided to hang on a little longer here. It was close to 100 degrees and muggy instead of warm days and cool evenings. The City of Hermann, has it's own campground, in the park. We thought we would check it out.
Friday, we packed up the camper, dogs and grandson and headed to Hermann, MO. A fun little town on the MO River about an hour away from our home. It was sweltering but we made the best of it setting up. Our friends from Columbia joined us.
Friday evening, we headed to New Haven for the hot air balloon glow. What a gorgeous part of MO. It is wine country as well. There are a lot of wineries in the Hermann area, as well as, on the MO River.
Saturday was so hot, we stayed at the camper, in the shade. We made the best of a beastly hot day. The boys played in the dirt with their toys. Saturday evening we went to dinner and then walked along the river for a bit. My grandson's head hit the pillow that night and was out like a light!
Today we packed up and headed back home minus our pulls on the black and gray water lines. I guess someone admired out pulls and had to have them. Now I have to buy some for our next camping trip, the end of next month.
All in all a nice time but the parking pads were too short. The guys said the bathrooms were gross and the campground got a lot of hwy noise. However, if you like that kind of thing, the trolley picks up and drops off at the campgrounds.

Our Site. Too short for our truck. We had to park on the grass/
Bath house. Husband said it was dirty

September 2017

I love Fall. It is my favorite time of the year. This weekend my daughter is in a wedding in Illinois so we have the little guy. Today we started off getting a hair cut. Then a picnic in a park & play for a bit. We went to Runge Nature Center to see a quilt show. I looked at the quilts while Mason checked out the snapping turtles.
On our way home, we went by Fischer Farm to see if we could pick apples. No apple picking but we picked a big watermelon to take home.
