Paul & Mary arrived Friday afternoon and we have not been able to spend more than a few minutes with them! The park has been so busy (which is a good thing!) and I have worked everyday but Tuesday of this week, so just hasn't happened.
Today I decided enough of that. It was gonna happen today. Well, it had to! They are leaving tomorrow!
This morning after Randy & I got back from church, we caught up with Paul & Mary as they were taking a walk around the park. I suggested we put together a lunch with whatever we had and gather at their site around 1:30. They liked that idea, so we had a plan.
And that's what we did. I had planned to make quesadillas today, so that was a good thing to share with Paul & Mary. Mary made a delicious spinach salad and she had strawberries for dessert. Perfect picnic lunch.
We had a lovely time chatting and getting to know one another. We chatted about those RVing friends we had in common – I bet a bunch of your ears were burning!! :) Talked about our lives prior to full-timing. Gosh, did we have lives before this? And just shared stories.
Of course, we had the obligatory picture-taking:
Unfortunately, I had to be at choir rehearsal at 4:30 and time just flew. Before I knew it, 4:00 had come and I needed to get myself ready to go.
It's always that way – when you're getting along great, time just flies by and when you're not? It sure drags. Well, today, for Randy & me, time flew. We so enjoyed getting to know Paul & Mary a bit. It had been a long time coming as we've traveled close to each other in the past, but just couldn't hook up. We look forward to our paths crossing again somewhere down the road.
And for a completely gratuitous grandbaby brag – here's our precious AubreyLynn, who turned seven months old yesterday!
Until the next time . . .
