We packed up the camper and headed to Nautural Springs Resort in New Paris.
For this camping weekend we were met by friends and family.
If you are looking for a campground with lots of water activites then look no more. NSR offers a heated swimming pool.

|Nice dive Tommy!|

They even offer scuba diving opportunities. I think I heard that there is a school desk and train or something like that to explore.
We checked in late Friday night and hung out. It feels good to finally unwind after all the moving and unpacking. I need about another month of summer. Speaking of moving I might have forgotten to give a HUGE thank you to all those who helped us... specifically my sisters and Josh. (Happy Buff?)
|Tammy, Lindsey, and I|
Take a look at our setup! This weekend we were with five other campers. This is the Hamlin/Williams commune.
|Kris and Bella|
The next morning Dan made his famous homemade waffles.
And Kris got a start on the bacon.
Dan and I decided to burn off some of that with a bike ride around the park.
I swear it felt like I was doing most of the pedaling...

I'd like to add that while riding with Buff as lead driver, she drove us through someone's campsite. I'm talking in between their camper and picnic table. We might have run over some flip flops. Sorry fellow campers.
At this campground there is a lot of traffic...

I wanted to say:
1. Take a look around buddy. You think this demographic of people has a valid driver's license??
2. I clearly see that one can load up on a case of Old Milwaukee's Best, load about fifteen people on the back and side and drive around like some kind of clown car show from a circus.
But instead I smiled and feigned stupid and said, "oh I'm sorry he's usually a pretty good driver. "
|Taking Chewy for a walk...|
Woooop wooop... Pull over.
|Officer, I'd like to report a DUI. Some crazy ladies on a tandem...|
I put her down Jeff but not without a fight.
As with most camping "resorts" you will always find activities for the kids. Usually it's a shitty craft that nobody cares about. It's a win-win though because the kids feel pretty awesome about themselves and it's one more mindless activity to send your kids to when they are bored.
|Craftin it up!|
Camping doesn't always have to be outdoorsy. Sometimes you just want to sit in the A/C. Adding a deck of cards or board game is always a good idea. We keep Uno in the camper. It's a good two and a half to four hour time kill.

The weather was good, a perfect weekend to spend time with family and friends.
We made new friends, friends that travel with ginormous blenders! Thanks Kim!
