Wrapping Up: 2015 RV Family Vacation

Family, Vacation No Comments

We spent the 4th of July at Mom’s house. BBQ, swimming, and then fireworks show in the park (just down the street). 

   
    

  

  
    
    

    
    
 
More fun at Mom’s (we had to stay a few more days after the 4th so that I could get some work done). The park around the corner had a really awesome bike track – with hills & jumps. The boys loved it. 

   
    
   

On Monday night, Joe & I had a date night (Thanks Mom!!). Unfortunately, Princess Peach (Grace) did NOT do well at bedtime. She cried/screamed for an hour and twenty minutes. Ugh. Meanwhile, we had a nice Italian dinner and then ice cream! 

  
On Wednesday AM we headed to Turlock for a few hours. It was during the work day, so we only got to visit with the Johnson’s. 

   
  Gracee (Johnson) got to meet Baby Grace and feed her πŸ˜€

  
The boys played games. 

   
   
We got back in the RV mid-afternoon and headed towards Visalia for the night. 

  
BBQ and swimming at Miller’s house. Had a rough night with The Peach that night 😁 I was exhausted by 7am. 

Thursday AM we met family for breakfast before hitting the road for the LONG drive home. 

 

  
We are ALL happy to be home….especially Lucy. Although, the night we got home — she refused to leave the motorhome. She was afraid we were going to take off again. Ha ha. 

It wasn’t the easiest RV Trip for Joe & I, but we did it. And the boys had fun. Back to work for me while everyone else in the house can sleep in everyday and enjoy the summer πŸ˜€

Sacramento Heat!

We left the beautiful mountain temps of high 70’s/low 80’s on Monday AM and drove over to my Mom’s new place in Sacramento….just in time for the inferno to strike. 

Thankfully Mom has a pool – that we took advantage of when the temps hit almost 110 degrees. 

Grandma D is totally enjoying having her grandkids in town and Eric is cooking up a storm for the family. It’s been a good visit so far (except for Gracee’s night time schedule. She is no longer sleeping through the night. It’s killing me). 

   
    
    
    
    
   
The boys are keeping Auntie Nancy SUPER busy. She is going to need a vacation from them. 

  
Tonight we went to Ferrel’s for ice cream — my first time there. We had so much fun! 

   
   

We are looking forward to the BBQ/Party on the 4th and then fireworks at the park just down the street. πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸŽ‰

On the Road Again

The theme of this summer vacation will have to be “Wingin’ It”. 

We thought we would spend a few more days at Silver Lake – maybe stay until Wednesday. But – by Saturday night, Joe & I both had reached our max. The thought of having some help with the kids was sounding a whole lot better than roughing out another few nights. 

The boys had a blast with all their new friends. They rode bikes together, made secret hide-outs, toasted marshmallows, and hunted crawdads in the river. 
Here are some pictures from our time at Silver Lake. 

    

     
      

                  

   
    
   
Monday AM…time to leave the mountain temps and head to the 100+ degree temps in Sacramento 😁😳😁😳
