Yes, We Are Still Alive And Doing Well

Current Location: Chester, CA

I know we're way past due on posting an update. I can't believe my last post was before 4th of July! That seems like so long ago now!!

So just a quick update to let you all know we're doing well. We survived the 4th of July. As far as arrivals and check ins, everything went amazingly well. People just kind of trickled in starting on Wednesday through Saturday. We never really had a big rush of people. In that respect, it was a lot smoother than most other weekends.

The challenges of the holiday came after everyone was in. We had quite a problem with visitors, even though we asked everyone at check-in if they were expecting visitors and reminding them of our policy. But this is where we expected to have issues, so we were as ready as we could be. All in all, it was a pretty smooth weekend, although still busy and still tiring.

We went immediately from ending the holiday weekend to entertaining company. My dad and his wife stopped by on their cross-country trip. As a result, we've been busy and have barely turned on the computer in the past week. It's been great having them here but it really throws us off of our routine.

They left this morning so we have one day to readjust and relax before starting our next week of work. I'll write more later when I have time, but just wanted to calm any concerns since we've been offline and out of touch.

Hope all is going well with everyone out there and I look forward to catching up with all of you soon!


  1. Glad to hear that things went smoothly. We really miss it when you don't post! Maybe you guys can get back into the swing of things and get some rest.

    Stay Safe

  2. Rest! You don't need no steenking rest! The blogosphere needs to be fed!

    Glad everything went well for y'all on the 4th. Visiting parents are much more important than entertaining us S&B bound fans.
    Relax, take deep breath, a walk in the woods and post when you can.

  3. Glad things went as expected for the 4th of July. It seems some folks just want to push the rules a bit.

    Things went well for us also. In fact, it went surprisingly smooth. We were full and everyone was happy and enjoying the holiday.
    We were tired when it was all over though!!

    Glad you had a good visit with your parents.

    Take care!
