Hello from Evergreen, CO
Saturday evening August 21, 2010
Wow, it has been over two weeks since I last posted.
First, I would like to post a picture of the grandkids at the campground. Boy are they growing up fast. I noted that Brando is wearing a shirt we gave the kids from a bus rally several years ago. That is our bus on the front of the shirt.
The rest of the family vacation week was a combination of relaxing, eating, and generally having fun. The remaining two families went home Thursday. Their busy schedule dictated early departures. We felt lucky to have had them at the campground as long as we did. We left Early Friday and had a good trip home.
We had two of the Jeute kids with us all week even though their folks were only able to stay a couple of days. Nathan got to ride up the the campground in the bus and Isabella got to ride home. Pat drove the PT Cruiser both ways so that we had a car with enough seats.
We had planned to travel from the family vacation to a rally in Indiana and then several stops including Ohio, a friend in KY and then to TN to visit friends and install a system. After weighing the cost of the rally, the fuel and all of the other costs, we decided to pull the plug on the trip. We would have also been fighting some terribly hot weather.
In lieu of the long trip, we were going to make a quick trip back to Iowa in the car to visit the relatives. We have delayed that trip a couple of times. May try in a couple of weeks.
We thought when we got home with an “empty” schedule, we would get a lot of projects done. So far, it does not seem like we got much accomplished.
We will be traveling to Iowa and then on to a couple of bus rallies in the bus next next month. In the mean time, I will try to make a couple of posts just so that you don’t think we have been abducted by aliens.
That is all for now.
