family stuff

Thursday was our scheduled day off and we decided to make the drive to Plainfield to visit Rudee's parents. The sun was out but the temperature was a little cool so we took the Dakota. Plainfield is about 70 miles east of here and we opted to take the 4 lane US 40 instead of I-70 since they were still doing a lot of road construction on the interstate.
Once we arrived it was time for lunch :-). Rudee's Dad was not feeling 100% and didn't want to go outside so we took Rudee's Mom to a local restaurant and then to her favorite place .... Kohls! She was one happy camper.
We spent the afternoon visiting with them and then headed for Jamestown where we surprised the grand kids by picking them up at their school. Amanda, our daughter, met us all in Lebanon at Pizza Hut and we had dinner out with them. Our son in law Ryan had to work and was not able to join us but he will get a lot of left overs because our eyes were bigger than our appetites and we ordered way too much pizza, pasta and breadsticks. :-)

We made it back to the 5th wheel in time to watch Swamp People on TV and then called it a night. Today is a work day and the campground has a large list of reservations. Looks like it's going to be a busy shift getting everyone registered and parked. I'll keep you posted.


  1. Just wondering if you've done much geocaching. Steve and I did it a couple of times and thought it was fun. Hope to try it again in this life.

    1. We used to Geocache a lot but kind of "fell out of practice". We did do some caching when we were in Mississippi and hope to do some more this summer since we are in a new area. We always thought it was a great way to explore!
