Easter Weekend, Yogi Bear Jellystone Park, Waller, Texas

Without Directors here anymore, the kids and other workers look to Jim & me for guidance.  (Yikes!) I do not make decisions without talking with the three who worked here last year, and the two other workampers who owned a campground for 20 years, and getting input from them.  Kathleen especially is a wealth of knowledge; I would guess she is in her early 70's but has the energy of a young woman and seems to really enjoy working in activities.  She is quite an asset and if our new managers do not listen to her about what occurred last year in Activities with the pancake breakfasts, games, and theme weekends which the guests love, they are fools.  Unfortunately, none of the three were here last Easter, but started working around Memorial Day, so we don't know how last Easter went.  We will see how it all plays out this summer. 

Here is a picture of the parents and kids waiting for the hunt, and did not even get all of them in the picture.

Here are a couple of pictures of the amount of people here this weekend.  And I'm told this is what it will be like the whole summer once school is over.

The campground was pretty filled up with almost 700 campers here.  The Easter egg hunt was a fiasco, even though we thought we had it well planned out.  All it takes it one impatient parent who yells "I know where the eggs are, follow me."  Yep, that's what happened.

We had over 197 people come for our pancake breakfast this morning.  No one ordered more pancake mix and we only had about four packages in the pantry.  We could go through 6 packages on a slow weekend.  (A package is about the same size as a bag of flour.)  We had to go to the office and clean off their shelves of their pancake mix, and luckily did not run out, but we did run out of bacon and sausage.  So even though it's not really my job, I gave the manager a Sysco order today so we don't run out again.
