Traveling with the one you love makes every trip wonderful.
I am a freelance travel writer and photographer. I love to travel with my loving husband. I like to see how the locals live better than going on tours.
I love reading and will be reviewing books for everyone.
The kids, I mean the grown kids, wanted to go to a mystery dinner date. It was in Lancaster so we decided to use our Harvest Host and find a place to stay close. Oma and Grandpa could watch the girls while Mom and Dad had a date night.
We headed to Bird in Hand, PA where we stayed at Kauffman’s Barefoot Acres.
This was our maiden voyage with Merida, Winnebago Brave. Well that is what we have named her. She is just what we wanted. Merida is just the right size for David, Harrison and me, 29 feet.
David drove me to rehab so we could head right over to the kids to head out when it was over. I jumped out and got my rehab over with. I went back to the motorhome and David informed me we were over heating. We tried to find an auto parts store but nothing was close. David opened the hood and we could see the hose that was cracked. David and I reverted to our Alaska ways. I told him I have duct tape in the RV and water. David let it cool down before he could apply the duct tape. We didn’t have a funnel to get the water into the radiator, so David went into the store to see if they had one. He came out with a plastic cup. I had a pitcher we could use to pour the water into from the 5 gallon jug. We were then off to the kids house. Dan had David go pick up the hose. Then Dan replaced it. Thank goodness that boy loves cranking a wrench.
We finally go off around 4:30pm on Thursday April 1.
Yes I am really running behind on my blogs. Here it is May and I am still blogging about February.
February is a big birthday month for our family. My youngest daughter, Sarah, was born on the first of the month starting the birthdays. Next is my son in law, Dan, on the 13th. We can’t forget the girls, Kate and Beka, who celebrated their 3rd birthday with us. Last of all on the 26th is my birthday.
Since the Mossberg’s were here visiting we had a party at Heather and Dan’s to celebrate all the February birthdays.
The middle child, Sarah, and her family decided to drive across country to visit from Gig Harbor, Washington. I call her the middle child because all her life we heard about her being the middle child of 5 children. We do give her a hard time about it. but she tried using it on her Dad and me. Got to love the middle child!
They were going to come in the spring but Steve, son in law, wasn’t working right now. He was waiting for his job to start up, so they came in February. They were all here for my birthday which was great.
Little Bear, their dog, snuggled up with Meadow.
Willow is a normal child who thinks she is already a teenager. Who in the old days we would have said can’t get her nose out of the book and now we say get them off their tablet. I think I like the idea of their nose being in a book better.
Even with Covid-19 causing many to think this year is the worst ever we found things to be thankful for. In fact, we found a lot; no one in our family have contracted Covid-19, we have a loving and caring family, we are very lucky to have 12 beautiful grandchildren, we have portal to stay connected to our family which seems to make them seem closer and many more.
David and I are lucky that we do have some family here. That means that we went to Heather and Dan’s for dinner. Heather and I split the cooking which made it easier on both of us. I did cheap on desserts by buying the pumpkin pie from a local bakery and the Lemon bundt cake from Maria to support her school. They were both delicious and I didn’t have to cook them which was nice.
When we got to their house Heather and the girls already had the table set.
