A Whirlwind Weekend

We still had too much stuff! Half of our garage was packed full of…stuff! We kept asking ourselves why we needed all of it, and we kept coming back to the answer, “We don’t!”

So, we planned to use the Memorial Day long weekend to get rid of it. This was also the time when we had to move our RV for the first time, so we were very excited/nervous. We packed up the RV, stowed everything that might decide to jump off of the shelves, unhooked the water and electric and backed the truck into place…

Then we stood there looking at the hitch. Everything they had taught us on how to hook it up had completely vanished from our memory banks. It was a confusing pile of chains and rods. Thankfully, our wonderful camp host happened to be driving by and along with some very friendly neighbors, gave us a wonderful lesson (did it for us).

We pulled into the KOA and set up, packed our bags, and fell into bed to get up for our flight the next day. It was an early one, but everyone was excited, so it wasn’t too hard to hop out of bed!

Once we got on the plane, April got a little bit nervous, but Joshua was ready to go! You could hear his exclaims of “Cool!” and “Wow!” all over the plane.

It was great to see all of our friends again, and many thanks to our wonderful neighbors for helping with the yard sale! We sure will miss good neighbors like you!

The plane ride home was extra special thanks to a very friendly pilot who let the kids sit in the cockpit and put on the headphones. Joshua was walking on air the rest of the day. It was an experience they won’t soon forget!

    Looks like the children had a good time on the plane. Glad that you had a good visit home to take care of things and see your friends. Sounds like Mark is getting an education with the camping- LOL.
