A big shout out to Becca and Molly for being friends with Parker this weekend. I'm sure it won't be the last time they play together.

A special thanks to all the kids who kept Mason busy and made sure he was safe on the playground. A special shout to DJ. I saw when you made all the big kids stop the merry go round and then you picked up Mason and then sat next to him. Awesome, DJ. I was able to sit back down and the pavilion and rest easier that Mason was being looked after. Good job.

This was our first Detroit-Metro and not one that will soon be forgotten. We thought the campground was awesome with it's layout. Maybe not the best for keeping all the shiny trailer together, but the best for having a very central gathering place which is also within easy eye-shot of the playground. Really cool! I've never been to the usual D-M campground (KC I think?); but for those of us with kids, I can't see something being much better.

That is quite the list of things that you got done! We finally made it out of the campground around 4:15pm and a day and a half later I haven't gotten anything done!

Thank you for the kind words about DJ. I had him read the post and he was misty eyed because he was so touched!

Thank you Hank for helping me with the raffle. Last year I did my best but towards the end it was getting hard to yell out the numbers!

A big thanks to you for letting Rebekah come for a visit! I'm sorry it was so late when we came to get her! She sure did like spending time with her new friend Fionna!!

I don't think there is a more casual, more fun rally than the M-D group. We look forward to the next one! Dave says the third week of August, 2011. It's on our calendar! Did someone say that Ralph was bringing corn and more recipe??????
Thank you Larry and Lou for all your breakfast help. I certainly would be lost without your help. You two are pancake pros!!!

We had a quick chat with the campground owner before we left and she said she is pretty sure that the 3rd weekend in August will be a race weekend next year. We will probably have to rethink that date if we want to go to Indian Creek next year or look into another campground.

I'm sorry it leaked on you Jess. We didn't have time to deal with all the issues!! Just think though, you were the first one to use it and probably the only one for quite awhile! Oh and I hope the bites go away quickly. Girl, next time use some DEET!!

I'd recommend this campground to anyone for a nice rally spot!


Great job Rhonda and Dave. Thanks for all you did to make it fun for the kids!
Thanks Steph. I am just so sorry that Sam's hat broke! I hope he has enough fun to overcome that disappointment.

Thanks Dave and Rhonda,I know its been said many times and Here it is again THANK YOU THANK YOU. What a great time we had,as usual.
Ralph,thanks fer the corn I did enjoy it,and by the way,whats receipe look like???. I think that's why I didn't make the campfire and didn't feel so well even Sunday morning at breakfast. For those who dont know, I dont drink,but I think I did,LOL.
Mike
You are very WELCOME. I know that item will be put to good use,instead of rattlin around in the rear compartment of our AS.
GOOD LORD WILLING,count us in for next yr. It was great to see old friends and make some new ones. Hope to see you all again at least one more time this yr.
Wow, happy birthday to Mom! I can only hope to make it to 98. I hope whatever was ailing you is better now. Take care and we will see you down the road.

Great job Dave and Rhonda!
You're welcome Sue. I just wish I had time to see your trailer. I heard such rave reviews about it! You will have to come next year so I can have a second chance to check it out!

Another awesome job Rhonda and Dave -- it was great, as always!
You aren't kidding when you say poof. A blink of the eyes and it was over. I try to sqeeze out every minute but it always seems too short!

Looking forward to next year and having the Argosy with us!

Loren & Mike
Congratulations on your big wins! I also want to say congratulations on the upcoming nuptials! I am so excited for you!
