I would like to extend a great big THANK YOU and say Welcome aboard to 2 new "Followers". They are Gail Durham and Rick NB. I appreciate your attention to my RV fulltime living blog. I hope you will find it informative or at least entertaining!
Today was our granddaughter, Zoey's, 5th birthday. She's pretty much been celebrating for a week already, starting with her "kid party" last weekend. The day for all of us started out early. Unfortunately, today was a special gymnastics meet for Zoey's sister, Mackenzie, and it was being held up in Seattle. Bad timing for a birthday celebration, but when you are part of a competitive team....you have to be there. Our daughter, son-in-law and Mackenzie had to be up in Seattle, 50 miles north of here, by 10:00.
It was decided that Zoey could stay with Bruce and I today until the rest of them returned in the afternoon. Zoey arrived on our doorstep before 8:00 am. I fixed her "Eggs In A Hole" for breakfast and she ate with us. I had already planned to help her celebrate at church us today. I had signed up as Fellowship Host for this morning and we took 2 large sheet cakes saying HAPPY BIRTHDAY to church with us. I bought them at Costco as they have a good bakery.
After church we took Zoey to McDonald's for a happy meal lunch (her choice). We came back to the MH to change clothes and get Annie. Before we left we needed to empty the holding tanks. Bruce let Zoey go outside and watch the procedure from a safe distance. She was not impressed by the process and said a lot of "papa, that's gross....P.U.....why do you do that?" When we had that whole business finished we went over to our daughter's house to wait out the afternoon.
I was fixing dinner for the family tonight and the birthday girl wanted macaroni and cheese, asparagus, and salad. OK...easy enough. Stephanie, Darin and Mackenzie got home at 4:00 and Uncle Dennis and Grandma Judy got there shortly after. Stephanie had purchased another birthday cake for our family dinner. We enjoyed the dinner and then we had MORE CAKE. I've had way too much cake in the past week. Even for me....I've gone over the top with this. It was good cake, but right now I'm just not wanting to see another cake for a long, long time. Zoey had a great time and was enjoying being the center of attention.
Until next time......so long for now!
