Labor Day Camping 2011

This year for Labor Day we went to a different campground. We tried Charles Mears State Park in Pentwater. The campground was nice because the walk to Lake Michigan was just around the corner, however the camp sites were a small cement pad and the rest was sand. Not exactly the best set up for Addy to walk around and definitely very dirty, but the kids had lots of fun anyway.

Our group consisted of The Coffindaffers (Tara and Kyle), The Courtney's, The Seward's, The Coffindaffer's (Keith and Corrine), and us. We had a big group and we had a lot of fun planning theme nights for our dinners. We also got a chance to walk into the town of Pentwater a couple of times. Not the best weather we have ever had, but we made the best of it.

One of the coolest things about the campground is that they had a beach wheelchair for use. We have never encountered a beach wheelchair before. Lugging Addy and all our things across sand is very difficult and the wheelchair was a lifesaver. Now I'm begging Aaron to try and build us one that we can take apart and take with us whenever we go to the beach.
