Rick and I sit in the wooden deck chairs after the kids leave the hot tub. How many billions of stars above? He points them out, names the constellations. A shooting star, and then, we spot the satellites. A nice way to spend an evening with your son.
Watch a movie. Forrest Gump from a duct-tape chair by a roaring fireplace. Well, not roaring, but gently flaming. Warm, and cozy. Stand on your head and grin.
Oops, how will we do the doors tonight? Locked or un?
Hmmm, OK, you guys take our key and we'll keep yours in case anyone needs to go back and forth.
The big boys are off to the Private Enclave, Brett and Matt and Jake and Andrew and their sleeping bags. Little Kayla and her Dad take the twin-bed room. I settle into my queen-bed down-comforted bed, listening to Index Creek meeting rocks, just a few feet from my window.
