Last Camping Trip of the Year- Maybe

As always I have taken tons of photos and I will share some. Unfortunately I let my hair down the last night and took some pretty un-family friendly photos that I will be unable to share so no links to photobucket this time.

We stayed at the "Dirt Pit" .... I mean KOA in Middleboro. We have stayed there before, years ago, but it has changed owners and is not the same. They added a lot of kid friendly stuff but the place, a least the street we camped on was a freakin' dirt bowl. Thankfully we have a super huge carpet for outside our camper but the rest was just kind of gross.

We used the pool as a huge bath tub as we just couldn't keep the kids clean. Once showered and in their pj's we tried to keep them wrangled in the campers as to not collect more dirt. Again,Gross!!!

The did have an awesome Tie Dye shirt activity on Saturday and an Ice Cream Social that was free for all kids. They also had a blow up movie screen and played a movie every night at dusk. The train rides were free and ran for an hour 3 times a day.

Sounds like Disney World right???

If you like cigarette butts and grouchy employees. We named one Hair Ball as he drove around at lightening speed in a golf cart with the 80's mullet flying in the wind. He would drive around at night with no headlight to catch the people making noise. He was a frigging Camping Grinch! The last night he threw us out of the pool saying it was closed. Didn't he see we were trying to bath the kids- Damn Him!

We had some great company -3 families- so we made our own fun and just won't be back there again anytime soon.

Remember these!!!
Jiffy Pop is awesome.

Not a great photo but look at the Tie Dye.She is so HOT!!

The jumping pillow was a huge hit with the kids. I have never seen anything like this before.

For as long as I have lived in this area, we have never been there. But, I have a not-anymore friend that lives at the KOA nearly all summer.

We used to have a house about 5 minutes from there, too.
