We're just rolling along here in PA. Nothing exciting to write about, just splitting our time between family, doc appts and hangin' out at the RV.

Monday was spent at the clinic while Randy had his colonoscopy. It had been 10 years since his last one, so it was due. All went well and we're just waiting on a biopsy report as there was a polyp found. Don't think it's anything to worry about, but it will be nice to have that confirmed. Once we were done there, it was straight to Bob Evans so Randy could have a nice big meal. His appointment wasn't until 11:30 so he hadn't eaten since 9pm the night before. He certainly enjoyed his breakfast!

Yesterday we met Lins & Reagan at the movie theater to see "Muppets from Space." During the summer this theater has FREE movies once a week. Isn't that amazing? They even allow you to bring in your own food and drinks. I think that's even more amazing. We'd gone last year with them to a couple of movies, but this was the first one we'd been to this year. The movie wasn't that great and it was bit slow to keep Reagan's attention for the entire showing. But, she made it through with little agitation. She loves it when music is played - that girl is a dancing machine!

After the movie, we went to Olive Garden for lunch. Lins & I really enjoy the soup & salad deal there. Randy got lasagne (I think he was still filling up from the last couple of days!) and Reagan had salad and breadsticks, too. Lins & I both got the new soup offered, Chicken Gnocchi. It was delicious!

Then, last night, all of us went to a Firemen's Carnival at a local park. This area has more free events, it's great. And its parks are wonderful, too. Anyway, this carnival was really geared to little kids which was so nice. You bought tickets and each activity was so many tickets a piece, most of them being just one ticket. The bounce houses were three tickets each. But, with the tickets being just 50 cents each, you didn't have to go break the bank in order to give your kid a good time. Reagan had a blast going from one activity to another. And the young people manning the activities were very encouraging to each of the kids.

All ready for the carnival!

We stood in line for 30 minutes for the last event of the evening - a ride in a fire truck's tower ladder! Reagan was a real trooper, standing for most of that time and very patiently, too. She and Jason went up in the ladder. As we watched, Reagan was asking questions of the firefighter, pointing to different things, wondering what they do. She loves to learn - hope that keeps up! :)

Up, up . . .

What a great night. Thanks Jason & Lins for including us!

Not much happening today. I'm going out for an early dinner with Courtney, the daughter of good friends of ours. Can't wait to sit down and hear what's going on in her life. She's a special young woman and I love her.

Hope your week is going well. Until the next time . . .
