Coming Home!

Updated 6/24 at 9?34 p.m.

Now that I got your attention ~ we are coming home after the Taste of Tacoma for 3 nights. We have a four day break before we play Ft. Lewis for the 4th of July and as Rob stated this is the calm before the storm. Once the 4th of July starts we are busy through the end of September with maybe one day off each week which will probably be a travel day as we jump from one site to the next.

Our plans so far ~

Monday, 6/28 ~ we will leave as soon as Ron is done with tear down. He will drive us through Seattle to Smoke Point Rest Area and then I will drive the rest of the way to Blaine. Thank goodness I now know I can drive the rig and feel okay doing it.

First stop is at Marquez & Nicole's to get the suburban and see their new little one Emilio, born on June 4th. Then off to NACO/TT to set up the motor home.

Tuesday, 6/29 ~ meet Jamie, Suzanne & Opal at Big Al's for lunch at 11:30. Can't wait to get our hands on that beautiful little granddaughter of ours and get hugs from Jamie & Suzanne. Looking forward to visiting with them. Dinner with Gerald & Sandra.

Wednesday, 6/30 ~ dinner, dessert and lots of visiting at The C Shop at 6:00 p.m. Please come and see us if you are in the area.

Thursday, 7/1 ~ drop the suburban back at Marquez & Nicole's and then head for Puyallup, planning on leaving about 10:00 a.m. We want to get back to the bone yard at a decent time so that we are not rushed and exhausted when we start work on Friday morning at 8:00 a.m.

Things we want/need to do while home ~

~ go to the storage unit and pick up the satelite dish ~ Ron is having TV withdrawls and has decided that we need TV while on the road. We have been without TV since 3/20.

~ do the never ending job of laundry. Will probably do that Tuesday morning before lunch with Jamie and family.

~ get together at The C Shop with friends. Waiting to hear from Patricia what night they will be there to set our plans. Set for Wednesday evening at 6:00 p.m.

~ have another get together with friends either at Paso or down at the State Park depending on weather.

We want to be able to see as many of our friends and family as we can while we are home. We have missed everyone so much and it would be great to get lots of hugs from as many as we can to take us through the next three months.

As soon as we know the rest of our plans I will post an update. Let me know if you want to get together.

Love and missing you all!

Alice

  2. Ali and Ron, I'm so happy that you will have a few days off to spend with your family and friends. Just what you need right about now! You'll come back to the carnival energized and ready to tackle the busy season.
