Our Trip to Texas so Far...from Blaine to Quartzsite

Thought it was time to show you some of the places we have been so far on our trip.  I have put together collages of different people and places we have been.  I have also made one movie (silent at that because I can't figure out how to put music to a video much less figure out where to find said music).  Hope you enjoy travelin along with us.

Breakfast with the Workentin Family on Sunday, January 23, 2011
Isn't Miss Opal the cutest little girl around?


Then onto services at Northwood Alliance Church
Lunch with Kristen, Jade & Coral 

Wednesday, Janury 26 saying good-bye to my bestie, Dee
Enjoying a farewell southern breakfast with Gerald & Sandra

And visiting with Brandon, Danalyn, Max & Christopher

And more fun times with the grands!

From Lewiston, ID to Bend, OR ~ January 31, 2011

 And then we went to my Aunt Joan & Uncle Don's place which is known as Noyes Ranch.
We spent 4 nights and three days there.  It was a good time of restin and relaxin.  The drive in can be very nervousin at times so I took lots of pictures.  Decided to put them into a movie to make it easier to see.  Just wish I knew how to put music to the movie.


This is the hunting lodge and caretakers residence at Noyes Ranch.
This is where we saw our first daffodils of the season! 
Guess I liked the daffodils so much I posted the picture twice :)
 
 In the kitchen at the hunting lodge.  Uncle Don is our usual chef for breakfast but he was in Napa for Friday night & Saturday morning so Aunt Joan did the cooking.  Look at all the different spices behind the stove.  Wish I had the wall space to do something like that here in the motor home.

And then we went to Santa Nella to the San Jouquin National Cemetery where Alice's Dad is buried.  He was a Korean War Vet.  Their memorial is the picture with the flag to the left.

And then onto Fresno for time with Ron's cousins.  We had a fun breakfast with Wes, Belva, Sharon & Jim.  Shared lots of laughter, old memories and made lots of new ones.  

And then onto Edwards AFB to see Jenn & Mike and their two little ones, Brooke & Adam. 
It was so fun to get more hugs & kisses from the little ones. 

And then to Quartzsite, AZ to meet up with Sheila & Larry.
Sheila and Ali are Forum Sisters on Womens RV Forum. 
 We met at Bad Boys Cafe for breakfast and visiting.


 And now you are all caught up with us on our travels.
Next stop is Scottsdale/Phoenix for a day of restin and relaxin.

Come back soon and see where are travels take us next on our journey to get to D'Hanis, Texas
to start our adventure of being campground managers.

  3. I will have to learn to do collages. Yours are great! Despite your mechanical problems, you have fit a lot of visiting into your trip. That's a great new header picture, especially the picture of you driving with your gloves on!

  4. What a great review of your recent adventures. You sure have run the gamut of weather and RV foibles, but you are well on your way to your new digs!
