New Tree's and More

Hard to believe it's Thursday all ready, another day off as I relax this morning with my coffee and catching up on several fulltime RV'ers journals. Reading the travels of others in the fulltime lifestyle helps to keep our dream alive as well as to give us insight and valuable information for the future.
The week began (Friday) with a visit from Kaileigh and Chris (her Chris not Kayla's Chris), they only stayed for a few hours as the were on their way to Las Vegas to visit Chris's dad and then a whirl wind trip of the U.S. as they made their way north to visit more relatives. t was good to see them both even if only for a short time. Sheryl had a little more difficult time seeing them leave (she doesn't want to share her little girl, but knows she has to). Kaileigh called from Vegas last night, she just had to tell us about this great little place they found, (Ellis Island) a small casino off the beaten path, it has a micro brewery and the best ribs in Vegas!!! Sheryl and I had a great laugh as she asked Kaileigh if it was Ellis Island, Kaileigh was surprised that we had been there and thought it was just as great, besides of all the places in Vegas it could have been!!! Will update more as we get pictures and details of their travel.

Our plans for the weekend were to visit the local state park for a grand reopening of their visitor center and a hike, along with maybe getting the kayaks in the water on Sunday. Well, last minute changes to plans happen, Sheryl had an appointment to get her taxes done up in Dumas as well as taking Cassie and a couple of her friends to a funeral for a friend of theirs from school. On their way back Saturday Sheryl stopped by Wally World and found some trees she wanted for the front yard. She came home and off we went to check them out, well since Lowe's is next to Wally World we stopped there first and found a couple of beautiful trees. Well, as you can tell Sunday was a day of hard labor for Kevin, supervised by the Warden Sheryl!!! Just kidding, Sheryl was hard at work also, planting several new rose bushes. The end result, the front yard looks great and adds value to the house for the future. Next week will bring another new tree for the other side of the house and back yard.
Great news!!! Sheryl found a good deal on line for plane tickets for Michael and Charity to come out to Amarillo, Yeah!!!! So we will have a full house in a couple of weeks, will be good to have everyone together and Sheryl will get to meet Charity, she is so excited!!!
Ok, that's all the news for this week, so until next time, keep lovin your life as we love ours....
