Day One and the Stowaways

Our first day of vacation was spent driving to New York and it was actually an easy 450 mile drive. We got our tent all set up and I pulled out the grill to start making dinner. I opened the grill to start it and saw this:

To which I said to MJ - "Oh, some mice must have built a nest in the grill when we had it in the shed - I good thing I saw it or we would have had a nice fire when I started the grill." So, I took the grate off the grill and lifted up the burned cover to get the nest out. That was when I saw four beady little eyes staring back at me:

Now, I hate mice!!!! I quickly closed the cover and made MJ go look. Once I was over the initial shock, we did as any good scrapbookers would- we took pictures!

So, we walked into the woods and dumped the suckers out along with their nest. One of them ran away quickly and the other was quite stunned - all I kept thinking was that there may be more in the van!

After we relocated our new friends, we had a great dinner and enjoyed sitting by the fire. We went to bed early because we had to get up the next day and head for Indiana.

On Friday, we made it to Indiana with no problems, had another nice evening by the fire and headed out to the Wis.consin De.lls on Saturday morning. We'll leave that for tomorrow's post.
