Our first camping trip took us to Cowans Gap. It was a great trip. The grandkids had fun and so did the adults. I am not sure if the kids wore out the parents or if it was the other way around. While the parents were busy with the kids, Grandpa and Oma, had a nice relaxing time walking around the lake, reading, and take photos.
There has been a lot happening here since I last wrote. I went to Friday morning mass to see Maria serve. I bowed in front of the alter and went to turn. As I turned my foot came out of my sandal, then down I went. It all happened like I was in slow motion. I was trying to grab the pew with one hand. The other hand went behind me to try to catch myself. I fell on the ball of my hand. I went home and David left for work. I took the neighbor shopping but when we got home my hand was killing me. David got me to the doctor. I broke my wrist, to be exact it is a scaphoid fracture in the wrist. I had to wear a splint for a week and a half. Now I am in a cast that keeps my thumb from moving. It will come off on January 12 when we get home.
I had to finish making the Christmas presents which was kind of hard with one hand. They are all done and ready to go.
We went to pick up our motorhome, Merida, and it wouldn’t start. David ended up replacing all 3 batteries. What a difference it made.
I got her loaded up yesterday with some help from Christina and Maria. We just have a few things to load today before we leave on our trip to spend Christmas with Sarah and Steve’s family. Also, Cade and his daughter, Brodie, will be moving back to York with us.
We are excited about our long trip. We will be making some side trips to checkout different things. The first main stop will be Mount Rushmore. It will take us a couple days to get there. We don’t want to drive to long, 6 to 8 hours a day is what we are trying to do. Of course, if we see something to go check out it might be shorter or longer.
When our daughter, Sarah, and her family visited in February we stopped by when we were out checking out Gettysburg. We didn’t get to check out everything outside because of the snow but the store was worth the visit.
Christina tells me she read that they had opened up a shed that is full of teapots and she would like to go check it out. She then proceeds to tell me that she has never taken her daughter, Maria. I told we needed to go then.
I am so sorry about taking so long to since I have blogged but summer has been a whirl wind. Here it is August and there are so many things we haven’t got done. Anyway back to my new story.
I received a email about things to do in our area. One of the things listed was the River Discovery Boat Tour which was free. Well David and I are really into free and boats so I grabbed us some tickets.
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.
