That was the question I heard over the phone after we got home from church this afternoon. How could I say no? Well, I could have just formed that word on my lips and said it out loud, but we are leaving in a couple of days, so I said “Yes” to the question instead.
A nice afternoon of relaxing would have been wonderful, but it was nice to allow the Grands to come over again for a little play time at Grandma and Papa’s house on wheels. We won’t be back for 2 months so I fixed all of us lunch when they were dropped off.
Bruce got the toy box out from our basement and after sandwiches and grapes the girls were fast into the usual restaurant mode. That pile of cheap dishes and plastic food has kept them entertained for years. They can get noisy, but they are good kids and I was able to take a few pics of them at play.
As usual, Grandma was the main restaurant customer. Papa tries to hide behind his book, but they often times make him play, too. They sometimes have their apron on and the order pads in their pockets. I was feeling hungry and wished that food was real!
We played restaurant for about 2 hours and then they picked all of that up and wanted to play a game of Guess Who? I think Bruce tried to nap for a while….silly guy!
While all of this was going on I was able to get our small throw rugs washed and dried in anticipation of leaving on Tuesday. Bruce checked the batteries and the tire pressure. We’ll stop to adjust tire pressure on our way out Tuesday afternoon. We have to make a fuel stop at the local Pilot station and can do the tires there. The rest of the “getting ready to roll” items on the list will be completed tomorrow.
For now we just have to wait until Tuesday to get our dental cleaning appointments out of the way and we’ll be ready to trek down to the Portland area. We’ll stay the night at the Camping World in Wilsonville for an 8:00 am appointment Wednesday morning. We have plans to meet my cousin and his wife Tuesday evening for dinner.
I think we are really ready to go. If it weren’t for those dental appointments, we could have rolled out of here late last week. Oh well. I had a couple of questions asking where the pic on my blog header was taken. I’ve added that information to the top of the pic, but it was taken in July while we were touring in the Mt. Rainier National Park in Washington. It shows the view looking out to the west over the Cascade Mountain range.
Hope everyone has had a great weekend.
Until next time…..so long for now!
