Memorial Day Weekend Memories

We've been camping every weekend for a while now and so have several of the other people that stay at the same campground, but Memorial Day weekend was the first big shindig for the place.  Saturday was the busiest with a live band, poker stand, carry-in supper, Bingo, and golf cart parade.  Sunday was a trivia game and trap shoot.

There were close to ten golf carts that participated in the parade.  Each one was decorated.  We traveled throughout the entire campground handing out candy to all the kids.

I had a variety of candy on hand to ensure each kid had a sugar high for the rest of the day.

The carry-in supper had enough food to please everyone's tastebuds.

During breaks at the band, me and Jenny passed our free time by posing for goofy pictures.

The trap shoot is a yearly tradition that's held as a memorial fundraiser.  I've never paid much mind to it except to curse once in a while that all day I'd hear shots firing.  This year, I actually took the time to watch most of the event. 

Logan's never shot a gun before but wanted to participate.  After giving him a lecture that I'm sure he thought would never end, I paired him up with a responsible adult who showed him how to shoot.  Logan only shot five rounds but it certainly made his day.

Jason's shot a gun before but has never been part of a trap shoot.  He wasn't such a straight shot with the clay pigeons but enjoyed the experience nonetheless. 

How did you celebrate Memorial Day weekend?

Ooooh candy!

We were supposed to go away to northern New Hampshire this weekend, but they predicted rain, so we decided to postpone it. Glad we did because it ended up snowing up there! Yikes.

My mom and I went to a Woman in the Outdoors event here in Illinois a few weekends back and I wish I had known they had trap shooting! I haven't done it in years but I really enjoy it :)

It looks like you guys had a lot of fun! I'm glad you and the family are able to enjoy the campgrounds again ^.^
