We spent the week in our usual way – hanging out at home, me hitting Curves a few times, cross stitching ornaments, computering, watching TV; Randy keeping our home in good running condition, computering, watching TV. Just our normal routine of living.
Yesterday we had a lovely change of pace. Sam's parents, Donna & Steve, invited us to their house for the weekend to join them in celebrating two birthdays – Steve's and their eldest daughter, Casey's. Randy & I really like Donna & Steve. They are easy folks to be around.
The birthday party was very laid back – just good friends and family plus some really good food, too. :) We felt very much at home.
Of course, the best part of the weekend was getting to spend lots of time loving on AubreyLynn! We hadn't seen her for a couple of weeks and she'd grown so much. She is really responding to you now and her smiles and giggles are priceless.
Tomorrow is a get-ready-to-travel day. I'll hit Curves, then go to the laundramat. Randy will be getting the rig ready for travel. We also need to get a propane tank filled. We've had to turn the heat on since the weather has turned so cold (30s at night – yuck!) and the propane is flowing!
Kevin, Sam, and AubreyLynn are going to come over for a good-bye dinner tomorrow night. Sure will be hard to say good-bye, but we'll see them in the summer – at their new duty station, Ft. Lewis, WA! Yep, we're gonna get to the Northwest after all. :)
After going to the bank on Tuesday morning, we'll get on the road. The plan is to travel for a couple of days; spending Tuesday night on the road and arriving at Tom Sawyer RV Park on Wednesday. We'll stay there for a couple of days, hopefully getting in some sightseeing. Then, we'll travel Saturday and Sunday, arriving sometime Sunday afternoon at Rainbow Plantation in Summerdale, AL.
It's going to be wonderful seeing our Alabama “family!”
So, we say good-bye to another month and hello to new destinations. We live a great life!
Until the next time . . .
