(Jan)We arrived in Lake in the Hills, Illinois on Tuesday to join son Eric, daughter-in-law Cheri and grandkids Ryan and Jessica for dinner, grilled to perfection on Eric’s new Weber grill. Tuesday was Ryan and Jessica’s last day of school so they were able to come join us at Paul Wolff campground for a couple of days. Paul Wolff is a beautiful campground in the Burnidge Preserve in Kane County near Elgin. We made good use of most of the hiking trails,logging 9.5 miles. We hiked on Wednesday and geocached on Thursday. The weather has been a little chilly but perfect for hiking. Evenings were spend around the campfire. The wood was pretty wet but Grampa and Boy Scout Ryan prevailed! Last evening Eric and Cheri joined us for steaks and cake in honor of their 14th Anniversary. It’s really great getting to spend some time with all of them! Today we will head up to their house for more visiting and fun times.
