It was super fun to go to down on the strip last Saturday night and ride on the "High Roller"....we had our own sphere and wow....the views were spectacular! We also walked down to the Belagio to see the fountains dance....and since it was a Saturday Night.....well the people watching was starting to get crazy. So we headed back to the house.
We had fun swimming in 3 different pools - the Hall's, the RV Park called the Oasis, and then at Lifetime Fitness! The kids got some good exercise swimming. We also enjoyed lots of walks with Summer. She liked the Hall's too - she tried to win Dave over as Jazzy and Bianca would like a dog. She tried really hard .... stay tuned to see if it worked.
Friday am we had a fabulous field trip to see Dave in action on the morning news on Fox TV Station here in Vegas. The kids were fascinated with the "behind the scenes" they got see and experience. Dave even got the girls on the news with him as "turkeys" - we have it recorded....it was super fun. All in all this was a fabulous week with the Hall's!!! We love you guys and look forward to more family outings in the future with you all!
Dawson saw several clients this week and even was able to catch up with some KC buddy's that flew in to the strip on Friday in a private jet. Too cool and hopefully they didn't get into too much trouble. Flying in on a private jet...that's super cool that he gets to hang out with the KC guys for the evening!
We head back to Arizona this week to meet up with Papa Ivan and Grandma Julie (Dawson's dad and step mom) in Lake Havasu City for the week ahead. After that we go into Phoenix so Dawson can work - we will be there about weeks. After that we head to California and then on up the coast. Loving Spring in the Southwest!
We are coming up on celebrating 6 months on the RV. It really is amazing the transitions we have gone through on this trip as a family. I am really proud of us for all the adapting and transitioning we have done. We are in a really great place with the traveling, school and life on the road - but mostly as a FAMILY. It is crazy to think about - but we are really enjoying this lifestyle. I have my sweet family all captivated in an RV - all to myself. Selfish, I know....but oh so sweet in this moment! These moments that go too fast. These sweet kids of mine that are getting too BIG! But we are really enjoying ourselves and each other. It's a good thing - since we are in tight quarters.
It is really hard to describe - because it is NOT a vacation each day....but yet life is more simplistic away from home. Less to take care of, less distractions, less commitments, and less "business". It really is sweet to be with my kids every day, all day. And believe me, the first 2 months - I enjoyed moments - but not the entire day. It is really amazing and an honor to teach them each day too.....although some days - I probably learn more in school than they do.
Dawson has also experienced increased productivity on the road - seeing clients and potential clients in person builds relationships much faster than over the phone. I just wish we had a better office set up on the RV for him on the days he does work on the RV.
Summer, our dog - is also doing great. She has adapted well and still follows us everywhere - ok she might be a little confused at times as to where we are going and what we are doing. But she is a trooper and loves all the attention she gets from other people....especially when we walk in the RV parks.
It has also been amazing to meet up and visit lots of friends and family members - seeing people in their homes, their cities and their environments has been super fun. Thank you to everyone who has spent time with us, taken us in for a stay, made dinner, let us use your laundry room and spent time with us. We are grateful and appreciate you all!
We are very blessed and praise God everyday for this opportunity we are experiencing as a family. Stay tuned for more adventures.....to come.
