more family things

Sunday morning we woke up to rain hitting the roof of the 5th wheel. We were going to meet our son in Lafayette and were hoping to ride the bike but it was still raining when we were ready to leave so it was another day in the pick up truck for us.
The record high temperatures here in Indiana have continued and the trees and flowers are all starting to bloom. I love spring!

The rain quit after about 20 minutes and the sun came out and started drying everything up. We probably could have ridden the bike but it sure would have been messy for the first 1/2 of the trip.
We met Matthew and his fiance' Mandie at a small barbecue place he suggested. We enjoyed our lunch and spending time with them. They are getting married in October in her hometown in Pennsylvania so most of the conversation centered around wedding preparations. We are keeping the month of October clear so we can help with any last minute details and will be staying at an RV park nearby until after the wedding.
We are already thinking ahead to next winter and not sure what it will bring. We are considering heading back to the oil fields or I may try a stint at Amazon, spend Christmas with family and then head to the oil fields. All this could be changed if something interesting presents itself, guess we'll just wait and see.

After a long lunch we headed for Plainfield to our niece and nephew's house. Their oldest son Dylan was having a birthday so they were celebrating with a cook out this evening. We arrived with plenty of time to visit with everyone and catch up on all the happenings the past few months. There was a ton of good food and instead of cake and ice cream we had an ice cream cake. Dylan will be in 8th grade and the school is offering a trip to Washington DC this fall for his class. He attends the same school that I graduated from and they were doing the same trip back then and it was one of the highlights of my time in school.. Dylan is excited about going and he is already saving his money to afford the trip. We were all happy to help out and instead of presents he got a lot of cards with pictures of dead presidents inside :-).

We made it back to the 5th wheel just as it was getting dark. One thing nice about this campground is it is very peaceful and quiet at night. We have both been sleeping very well :-).

No real plans this week except to venture out on the bike some. I might even get the urge to look for some mushrooms since the weather has been so warm. I'll keep you posted.
