Spring is officially here and hopefully snow will soon stop making an appearance. We're getting pretty antsy here at Shady Acres for April 15th. Michael is busy getting the park ready and Connor (now 20 months) is busy getting into everything. The bathroom renovations are well underway and although my mind is bursting of color swatches, tile samples and plumbing fixtures, the end result is going to be amazing. I can't wait to say that we have the BEST campground bathrooms in New England, but I'm going to have to, because if we want to get technical, right now we don't even have toilets!
We are also super busy planning this year's activity schedule. We are revamping the format this year, and every weekend will be a themed weekend. Truth be told it is just our excuse to sneak in some of the crazy activities that we couldn't find a place for otherwise. For example, 80's weekend. Michael and I are both children of the 80's, so we harbor a secret love for teased hair, Rainbow Brite, John Hughes and leg warmers. Well, maybe we don't BOTH harbor a secret love for Rainbow Brite, but you get the idea. Our planning sessions often devolve into silly reminiscing.
We also have a Hero's weekend in the works for May, where we want to honor all First Responders (EMT's, Police, Fire), Veterans and Active Military. It should be a fun way to say thank you to the people who make the USA what it is. Can you imagine a better place to raise your family? We have a great community here and I think you all would be surprised to learn how many of of these amazing people are camping among you, sporting marshmallow stains instead of badges and spending their very precious off duty time at Shady Acres.
We have so much more planned and it is going to be an amazing summer. There are sure to be some new faces down the road from you and new friends you have yet to meet. Shady Acres is a great place to relax and wind down from the stress of your every day. Life moves a little slower down here, unless you're doing a relay race. I can't wait to see you soon!
