Summer Vacation-- Day 9 (heading home)
After some of the kids slept under the stars and we had a big breakfast, it was time to hit the road for the long drive home. 7 hours.
And as is typical on these trips, the older kids seem to want to sleep the whole way and the younger ones just want to giggle the whole time. Drives me nuts. But, we made it home safe and sound and that's what counts. We did have a wonderful vacation overall without too many incidents. For the most part, they all seemed to get along. Though it was threatened to come home more than once. LOL. Now, we will begin our planning for next year's vacation. We intend to go back to the reunion for sure. Though, we may explore a new state or two this time. Our next RV trip is a Halloween trip in October. Though, we may be throwing in a September trip too. Not sure yet. So, October and November, there will be more trips. And the spring. We love the campgrounds. Wished we had a travel trailer to be sure but the RV brings us closer if nothing else. We'll finish our inside paint job and finally get those cushions sewn. New dinette cushions for the little dinette is next but need to first sew the new ones. But, we made it work this time. The RV trips are our getaways. We love to learn new things or experience new things. Whether from a riverboat cruise, bison farm, cave exploring, skipping stones in Lake Erie, amusement park, water park or what have you, we like to try at least something new and different each time. I know we don't stay at fancy hotels and our RV is probably classified as an antique soon, but it allows us to travel and for that, we are very grateful. Making memories. Pray we can continue to do so. I think for Christmas we're asking for gas cards. Thanks for allowing me to share our trip this year. Now, to catch you up on all the happenings around Chaos Manor. Been incredible! Got home on a Friday and on Monday, we got a call to make big plans to leave on that Tuesday. Talk about a whirlwind. Much more to come.
