A day at camp

Yesterday, we got up to the hunting camp.  It does not belong to one person, its owned by a hunting group that Dave's Dad belongs to.  We went for a fun ride in the woods up to a clearing on top of a mountain where we enjoyed the view.  After we returned to camp, we had a picnic lunch and then took turns shooting the .22.  We went back home shortly after and rested for a while before going out to dinner to celebrate Joe's birthday.  He is Dave's father.  We went to a popular Italian resteraunt in Ballston Spa called Augies.  It was rather crowded, so its good that we had a reservation.  There were 9 of us.  There servings are huge and served in these really nice dishes.  We ordered 1 appetizer, a salad and 3 main dishes and it was more than enough for everybody.  After, we went out to Jen's for dessert.  We sat under a grape arbor and enjoyed strawberries in chocolate and coconut cream pie.  She has the outdoors decorated just as beautifully as the indoors with artfully arranged pots of flowers and antiques.  We visited the pigs and chickens and goats.  So now its back to work for 4 more days.  I just came off working 4 days with one day off, so this week is going to be tough.  My Mom will be coming soon, so that is something to look forward to!  I hope everyone has a great week...

glad you had fun.... I got shivers when I read about the 22.  Not to far from here a 6 year old just died after being shot by her cousin on accident as they 'practiced'.   Surely there is more to the story but damn!
