On Friday, Andrea picked the kids up from Camp Pinnacle while I was working. Pickup wasn't quite as fun as it is during a year when there's not a global pandemic. In the past, the entire camp would come together and sing and parents would get to meet everyone and it would be a big fun party. Last year, and this year, the parents were only allowed to briefly get out of their vehicles to retrieve their campers and then had to leave.
Both kids were super excited and happy to see Andrea. Paige gave mom a big hug and cried a bit, she had all kinds of emotions and missed us. Connor may allegedly have gotten a little emotional to see his mother, he actually said it was because he'd had such a wonderful time and wasn't quite ready to leave.
After picking up the kids, we went to lunch and explored the Grove Park Inn area together. The kids were excited to get their electronics back and they were texting with their camp buddies and also with their friends from home that they've been missing.
For dinner, we had a nice table with a view at the Edison restaurant. It was a lot of fun eating lunch and dinner with the kids and hearing all their stories and experiences from camp.
After our time at GPI, we drove to Big Canoe in Georgia to spend some family time with everyone. Ashville was beautiful, and it was a fun excuse to visit since we were nearby.
