Last stop: Santa Cruz KOA
Last stop before our trek becomes just another memory! We had a great time relaxing and watching the kids have fun at our 'camp' site. . The KOA's are a great organization. They are family oriented, have lots of kids activities and have great customer service! If you haven't been to one since the 1970's (along with those Up with People concerts...) I highly recommend them. Especially if you have small children. And you're a city girl/guy at heart. They are usually within minutes of local tourist attractions.
The kids having fun and relaxing at the Santa Cruz KOA. We stopped here and stayed for two nights to get a bit of a 'vacation' from our vacation. The boys loved it and made fast friendships.
The boys rode the KOA train around the campground about 1/2 a dozen times. Both boys love trains, but especially Jonah. He talked about that train most the the way home.
The jumping pillow was a big hit with the boys...with all the kids at the campground, really. As long as it was inflated, there were gaggles of kids jumping all over it!
The boys had a great time on the mechanical bull at the KOA in Santa Cruz. Since they weren't offering beer and there wasn't a country band in sight, I declined.
YUM! After two summers of camping out, we finally got the boys to roast the marshmallows AND eat them!
The boys loved staying in the Kamping Kabins at KOA. I can't really call it camping, but we did sleep in sleeping bags, roast marshmallows,and walk to the bathrooms. However, we did have electricity in the cabins, and a space heater. Ahhh, the comforts of home withouth the square footage...And aren't those hanging plants and front porch swing just adorable?
