. . . but not very far away. On Friday, with the temperatures forecasted for triple digits, Randy & I packed up and went to Jason & Lindsay's for the weekend. By Thursday evening, two rigs had already come in and parked on either side of us. We knew that meant we'd have power issues all weekend long if we stayed at the campground. So, we turned everything off, put the A/C at 85* and the frig on propane and out the door we went.
Lindsay, Reagan and I had a lunch date on Friday with my niece, Lisa, and her three kids, Jimmy, Kylie and Kelsey. Life gets so dang busy that it's hard to get together with family – even when they live fairly close. And Reagan absolutely loves her cousins, so anytime she can see them, it's a treat. We made plans to meet halfway between Lindsay's & Lisa's at Isaac's Deli and Restaurant.
We had a great time, laughing and just enjoying being together. Lisa's kids are great kids – she and her husband, Jim, are doing a great job raising them. I am so proud of them!
Reagan even showed off her snaggle-toothedness!
Randy & I spent Saturday just hanging out at Jason & Lindsay's, doing much of what we'd have been had we been home in the rig. Jason, Lins, & Reagan were off for the day at a family gathering so we were left on our own.
Randy and Bolt, Jason & Lindsay’s dog, had a special moment out on the deck. :)
This morning we played hooky from church and the five of us went out to breakfast at Bob Evans (yummy!) and then went to Target and Borders. We were hoping to get some deals at Borders since they are closing, but I guess it's still too early for the kind of deals I was hoping for. :) To me, 10% off isn't much of a sale. There were some 40% off deals, but not many. Oh, well. We really didn't need to be spending the money anyway! :)
We are now back home, and it feels good. Randy commented he was so glad to be back in his recliner! :) We are grateful for Jason & Lindsay's generosity and hospitality, but as everyone knows, there's no place like home!
Until the next time . . .
