Up with Summer – Mena and I were the only ones to say good bye as the Martin’s were almost packed up. They had their pop-up camper all pressed down and the dogs in the car ready to go. Summer and I went over to say bye and when I got back to the RV – Mena was up and wanted to go say goodbye to Wyath, Rowan, Finn, Tripper, Milo, Meg & Eric. What a fun family. Hope they have a great time in Myrtle Beach. It was amazing how many RV’s left the park today enroute to warm weather and Thanksgiving holiday fun. By mid day we were practically alone down here at D8.
It started raining mid morning and it proceeded to rain all day- this called for lazy family time. We left Q’s bed out all day to lounge on and watched several movies and some football. I updated this blog and hung out with Dawson and the kids and just enjoyed some much needed down time. It was relaxing and restful and I think a few naps were had as well.
We watched “Field of Dreams” –it was on the satelite station this evening. It was really fun to see the movie after visiting the field during the first weekend of our trip. So cool to see the movie and the field and say we were there. And the benches that are in the movie – we sat on and also ran the bases. So fun.
Might be a little lonely here this week but well see – Dawson has an appointment tomorrow and we will see if any of his other potential clients come through for Tuesday. If not, we might leave earlier for Charlotte and maybe go via a coastal route or something. We’ll see.
We are going to do school all week at least until the holiday. It will be good because there aren’t too many distractions here. Other than a hot tub! Dawson and I took Summer for an afternoon walk once the rain stopped. We decided to take an afternoon dinner outing and divide up. He was going to take Franki to dinner and spend sometime on a date with her and I would take Q and Mena somewhere.
They picked Applebee’s and Q and Mena and I ended up at a Seafood place called the Mayflower. We had crab legs and those are not easy to eat. So Dawson and Franki were done practically after we had just ordered. So they hung out and then decided to walk to Walmart across the street. The two of them at Wallyworld alone could be dangerous. They started sending us photos of things asking what we needed. Too funny – they sent a photo of Franki sitting in a bean bag chair that they think we need for the RV.
We finally devoured all our crab legs – what a mess – but it was fun for Q and Mena to see who could get the biggest chunk of crab meet out of the legs. Mena won as her little fingers were able to grab and pull it out almost all at once.
We paid our bill, stopped to wash our hands in the restroom prior to our departure. We then headed to pick up Dawson and Franki. It took them awhile to make their way out. They bought a few items like some muffins, sewing kit, and toilet chemicals. We headed home to walk Summer and see what we could find to watch tonight as the Red Box didn’t have anything to offer.
Once home – guess who thought they needed some “HOT TUB” time? The kids….their suits were still out in range since we used them in DC at Cherry Hill. It was pretty chilly outside and there was a lot of steam coming off the water in the hot tub that at this RV park was outside. It was cool to be sitting outside with steam running of them. They stayed in about 20 minutes and I sat there talking to my mom on the phone while they had some hot tub fun.
I took advantage of some me time- a hot shower and let them all settle in for the night. I don’t know what we ended up watching but we called it a fairly early night. Dawson headed to the bath house and got some alone time for himself.
It was a great restful Sunday – the way I think God intended for it to be!
Here’s to a Holiday Week ahead!
