    We have had a traumatic couple of days watching our little fawns.  They are stuck in the field across from the park because they can't jump the fence. Their mother jumps back and forth and tries to get them to follow her over. They will back up and make a run for it but they hit the fence.  We feel helpless.
    The orange flowers have been so beautiful in my flower pots. I wish I could remember what they are called.  
    The sky had a very strange and sensual cloud formation this morning. We did have a little rain shower and a lot of wind out of the system. I love hearing the wind blow through our cottonwoods. 
    We have a busy park this week. The Gray Wolves RV Group are here for 4 days. We also have quite a few campers dropping in for a night. Last night we had a world champion motocross racer in the park. 
    I'm getting excited about my quilt retreat the weekend of September 19-21.  If you were unable to attend this year, I plan on hosting 2 retreats next year - one in May and one in October. 
    I still have room for camping for the Celtic Festival which is held September 25-28.
    We now have our cabin available to rent by the night or week until the end of October. $50 a night which includes full kitchen, full bath, dish tv, wireless, linens and dishes.
    Call us and reserve it for a quick weekend getaway.
