10 Day Forecast
It looks like a fair amount of rain which means that we should plan on rain jackets and indoor activities. There are a good number of games up and a few puzzles. Maybe we want to look at getting another puzzle or two. Additionally, maybe there is another "crafting" like activity we might want to do like a scrap book or a drawing book or something along those lines. If you have any ideas let me know and I can share them with the family here.
The young men in the tent need to remember to keep their flaps closed.

We will have a variety of pita and bread and food to put on them. We will have peanut butter, jelly, and bananas. We will also have cold cuts and cheese. Of course we will also have chips. These lunches will not be formal sit down family lunches, but as people get hungry they can eat.
Grilled Chicken Pita Sandwiches
These sandwiches are served in pita bread consisting of hot cut up grilled chicken, tomatoes, onions, olive oil, feta, lemon, cilantro, cucumbers, with either tzaziki or hummus. We will have yellow rice as the side. Sliced peppers as a side. The desert will be strawberries, blue berries, shortcake and cool whip.
Breakfast is all on people's own with options consisting of cereal, toast, yogurt, fruit, frozen sausage sandwiches.
Burgers and Brats
This is the traditional American burgers and brats for the family. Grilled Bubba burgers (and an alt non-meat) and grilled brats. We will have corn on the cob, potato or macaroni salad, and salad.
2 Birds cafe will cater our breakfast on the morning of 5 July. Sam will pick up the food from the 2 Birds around 10am. Sam will go pick up the food that morning. It will consist of quiche (one veggie), fruit and croissants.
Spaghetti, veggie pasta sauce, Italian sausage, garlic bread, salad.
Nut allergies for Emily are the major safety concern. We will make sure there are no nuts in any of the meals and give special guidance to 2 Birds about the nut allergy.
Families should bring the adult beverages they desire. Please bring quantity enough for a little sharing.
John, would you please bring a cooler and a bag of ice to store drinks in?
There is already some soda up there and we can get more from the Island store. The island store will be open on 4 July. There is also several little boxes of Chrystal light.
Breakfast cookies, chips, veggies, pretzels, and such. We will also have pub cheese, hummus, and dip like snacks. Popcorn will also be available with a variety of flavored salt.
This is my first draft recommendation.
Chris and Michele in the Bunk House.
Corey, David, and Bryan in the big tent. We need to look and find an air mattress for Corey for the tent. David and Bryan will use the fold out mattresses.
Sam will bring this tent as it is currently not at Chebeauge.
Main Bed Room Second Floor
John and Amanda in the big upstairs room.
Ashley, Emily, Emily will sleep in the Futon Room using the double cot and the futon.
Grandmother in her bed. Amy will sleep on a cot in the master bedroom.
The Lincoln, Natick, and Canton families will coordinate their own transportation to and from Chebeague. Amy, David, and Bryan will go with Grandmother and Sam. Just as a reminder, since grandmother's car is the only car with a parking sticker all other vehicles will need to pay for parking.
Grandmother will purchase ferry tickets for the family. She will provide Chris, John, and Sam with images of those purchased tickets which they and their families will be able to use. The ferry is now using a system where you buy your tickets online and they email you a bar code. Because grandmother is a season parking holder she can purchase them at a reduced cost.
Grandmother has already coordinated with Dylan for a golf cart. She and whoever will be the primary driver of it will pick up the golf cart on 3 July when we arrive and will return it on 6 July when we depart. Driver of the golf cart must be 21 or older.
As the season has been wet, water is not a major concern at this point on the island or for the house. With that said, we will have bottled water for drinking and will set up the outdoor shower for those who wish to use it instead of the inside shower. With us only being there for a few days this should not be a major issue.
We will have plenty of spray to help keeps the ticks off.
Sam will purchase the groceries. He may need some help from John and Chris driving some of the groceries up.
