We took our kids there back when they were about 6 and 10. It was Easter week, and very windy. After a long night trying to sleep in a flapping tent, my wife went to sit in the car while I moved our small table and stove into the tent to cook some pancakes for breakfast. I cooked a couple for her, and when I opened the car door to deliver them, the wind flipped one onto her lap. In disgust, I dumped the other on her lap and closed the door. Needless to say, she was less than impressed with my service. She thought I had dumped them both, and we have laughed about it ever since. She has never wanted to go back, so I go with the guys, now.
