North Java NY home to pretty much nothing else but Jellystone Campground is about 2 and 1/2 hours from our home, an 30-40 minute drive south of Buffalo and 45 minutes south west of Rochester. There might have been something else in the area, but all we saw as cows and fields. We arrived about 4pm and were ready for the long weekend.
Just look at the sunshine! Terribly deceitful, the sun was nice, but the wind was awful. Just take a look at how hard those flags are flying. The park itself is very nice, I think we all would have enjoyed and taken advantage of the camping amenities more if we didn't spend most of our time inside. The pool and waterpark for example, were totally off my list of things to enjoy at all this weekend.
Once we were established in our cabin, we were happy to see that our camping friends Mary and Brian were right down the way, but no Tami and Rich and I had no cell service. (Our cabin was actually right across the way from our original camp site, so everyone was just as close as we had planned). I finally called her and found they would not be arriving until Saturday.
We spent most of the first evening getting settled, had a nice dinner and enjoyed the park. The boys went scouting for things to do, and we stayed in to keep warm, hoping that Saturday would be a much warmer day.
this is about as close to Yogi my boys got all weekend. They are simply just much to mature to pose with the real guy and only allowed this picture to shut me up.
Day one was really more about setting up shop, making claim in our new weekend home, and relaxing. I enjoyed my new Game of Thrones book (Book II) and the kids enjoyed the loft and playing games. Tomorrow's adventures are much more exciting.
