I loved going to Uncle Harry and Aunt Donnie's for the annual Labor Day campout as a kid! I used to think the peach bathroom was for a princess because it was so big and the bathtub had curtains. They were the first people I knew who had an in ground pool AND a pond. I was in awe at the diving skills of some of the men. Playing airhockey downstairs and pinball in the polebarn with my Hinen cousins are some of my favorite childhood memories. The one thing I will always remember Aunt Donnie every time I see it is tapioca pudding. She made the absolute best I've ever eaten!!
