The other reason we stayed at Haas Lake Campground was that it was conveniently located just down the street from a Lyon Township Park where I was able to rent a picnic shelter for Nicolas’ Graduation Party with some of our old friends and neighbors.
It was a beautiful afternoon, and even with a little bit of wind we were able to get everything set up under the picnic shelter.
There was plenty of food!
Wouldn’t you know it, I took a few pictures while we were setting up, and then I set my camera down as everybody started arriving and forgot to pick it back up! So, no pictures of anybody at the party!!
We had a really nice time, though, and it was great to see everybody who came out for the afternoon – some that we haven’t seen in a year or two, since we headed out on the road!
Other than Nick’s party, we just visited with family and the boys took care of some yard work around Grandpa’s house and Grandma’s house. Nicolas also checked in with his recruiter, and attended a meeting with the other recruits.
We stayed 2 weeks at Haas Lake, and enjoyed some beautiful summer weather . . . and the time just flew by!
The back area of the campground is newer than the rest, and it’s starting to look pretty nice. The grass has filled in quite a bit, and there’s a pretty nice little beach on this lake.
We were surrounded by a neighborhood, an elementary school, and a sod farm!
But . . . the roads are still dirt, including the main road coming into the park, and my drive to and from work (even if it is only 2 days/week) is still a nightmare from here, and it’s too far from my Mom . . . so we’ll be going back to Camp Lord Willing (where we stayed last year) in Monroe when we get back from our “camping days” in western Michigan and northern Indiana.
