relaxing week end

We were up early Saturday morning and picked up our daughter Amanda so we could all walk in the Susan Komen Breast Cancer Walk in Indianapolis. The weather was downright cold and none of us was to keen on standing around in the cold waiting for the walk to start.
We made a stop for breakfast at Flapjack's in Brownsburg and a new plan was hatched :-). We had already paid our registration for the walk and Amanda had picked up our packets and shirts so we really were not missing anything by not going sooooooooo we didn't.
Amanda had a babysitter arranged for the day so we drove to the Indiana Live Casino in Shelbyville. I would like to tell you that the only reason we went there was because Amanda wanted to go but that would not be the total truth :-) we all three thought it would be a lot more fun than walking in the cold!
Our luck was mixed. Rudee came out a few $$ ahead, I was down $6.00 and Amanda was down about $20.00. Not too bad for 2 hours of gambling, of course we tend to stick to the 1 cent slot machines and are NOT high rollers :-).

Rudee and Amanda dropped me off at the 5th wheel when we got back and they went to get their nails done and do whatever else it is you girls do when you get your beautification treatments.

Rudee took Amanda home and we just relaxed the rest of the evening in the 5th wheel watching TV.

Sunday we were a little slower getting started than normal. I didn't even get my shower in until after 10:00 am. After eating "brunch" we headed over to Thorntown and sat with Steve and Trish around their campfire. While we were there Dave "Grumpy" Williams showed up with his 5th wheel in tow. Grumpy rents the site next to them for the season and we all helped him get his rig parked and sit up. He also has custody of their shared golf cart so after unhooking Steve and I rode with him back to his Goldwing shop and loaded the golf cart up and brought it back to the campground.

We left Thorntown around 5pm and headed back to the 5th wheel where Rudee made us supper. We had loaded backed potatoes and macaroni and cheese. Yum!

The weather has been very "spring like" around here. The nights have been cool and we have had to use the furnace overnight to stay comfortable. The daytime highs have been in the 60's, very pleasant. We are beginning to make some plans for our vacations this summer. We will be taking an extra day during Memorial Day week end and 4th of July week end so we can attend some motorcycle rallies. Our big trip will be in July where we are taking 2 weeks and going to the Black Hills of South Dakota. We are really looking forward to that! We are talking about taking another week sometime and doing another motorcycle trip. We are just not sure when that would all work out but as always ..... I'll keep you posted.
