A Great Time With Some Grandkids

A couple of the grandkids were at our house this week – which means lots of attention and play time for me. We took walks and played in the park but, besides that, they went places and I stayed home…


There was a movie for Dana and Peyton (Mirror, Mirror - great fun for grandmas with granddaughters - D) while Mike and Garrett went to the Seabee Museum.


The Ronald Reagan Museum for everybody but me:

The next day, they visited the Channel Islands National Park Visitor Center – I didn’t get to go there either:



Then it was time for the kids to go home - after they left, the house seemed so quiet -  I missed my playmates.

See you next week!

Back on the road...

It's been three months but Mike finally felt ready (after his eye operation) to try his hand at driving the motor home. We didn’t go very far - met family and friends for a weekend get together at the closest KOA.
My human friends went on the zip-line,

        hiking, biking, celebrated a birthday...









went on a night search for Big Foot, had an outdoor movie night,

and decorated Easter eggs.









I met a new creature...

He didn't seem to be too interested in forging a new friendship but he was pretty.
I also got to do my favorite thing...










Oh yea - Kramer is back...


It was great to be back in the motorhome.

So we headed to

The area is beautiful and you can see where Wild Bill Hickock and Calamity Jane are buried (Mount Moriah Cemetery) the saloon where Hickock was shot (Saloon #10), and old mines. Kevin Costner has left a hefty footprint since “Dances with Wolves” did some filming in the area. You can also see his Tatonka (Buffalo) Museum and Midnight Star Casino - both fun to check out, for people.

Then we get a call - oldest granddaughter is headed to the Discus Nationals for age group in Omaha. That's why we like to travel by RV. If there's a change in plans, you can just go for it. So, after a few phone calls to rearrange some reservations, we turned around and headed back where we came from.

After Emily did her thing, it was nice to spend more time with relatives we didn’t think we’d see so soon after the family reunion. And since I didn't get to attend the track meet, that was my favorite part - I just love people!
Then it was back on the road – driving long trying to catch up to our reservations. We spent one night, pulled over where some big rigs had stopped. When we got up, there was no one or any thing around - very spooky. So, off we went until we hit Salt Lake City. After a good night’s rest and a quick stop at the Salt Flats...
 
We drove and drove...

Until we reached...
just in time for Mike and Dana’s anniversary!
It was great checking out the sites in Tahoe. It was a fun vacation and trip but it sure went fast! See you next time...
