Hard Day's Work

Yesterday was sunny and 80 so we decided to put ourselves to work. Daniel dugg up all the flower beds in the front yard and got rid of the nasty pine straw. We got the fabric laid to keep the weeds down and then put the mulch and bark down. We ran out of mulch so Alan and Daniel will be heading to Lowe's tonight after work. Eddie of course had a blast spending most of the day out doors.

Then after dinner we decided to make some homemade doggy biscuits for Bailey.

Pots and Pans Band

I am making pies for our Thanksgiving dinner tomorrow and the boys found the pots and pans cupboard. Alan created his own drum set and we caught a short piece of the newest drum craze on video. Hope you enjoy and have a Happy Thanksgiving!!

The Great Nevada RV Adventure Begins

Wow, what a day of travel yesterday. We had spent the night with our good friends the Tuckers to save us a 5hr drive to the air port. Then it was up bright and early to get to the airport. As we were getting ready to board the plane I ran into a lady that I knew from our previous assignment in Alabama. I had to ask her how I knew her, but when she told me it all came back. She was pregnant when I first met her and only saw the baby once. That baby is now 9 months old!!! Where does the time go!?! It was great to catch up with things from the Stampin' group.

Then we endured an extremely long, but non-stop, 4hr flight into Las Vegas. The plan was to call Gramps when we landed and again when we were waiting on the pick up curb with our bags. It only takes 10 min from the campground to the airport. We followed the plan, but by the time we called him from the curb he had run into a few problems driving our rental RV. The Rv is 12 foot tall and the clearence to get to the pick up curb is only 7ft tall. You do the math. In the process of solving the problem he got himself lost. He said he was where there were some shuttles and limos. I knew exactly where that was so we turned around and headed back inside. While we were re-routing Mary had been informed by a shuttle driver that if the cops saw them in that area they wouldn't ask any questions they would just start writing and the fine was $150. Just as more annoyed shuttle drivers were coming to inform Dad and Mary Daniel had been spotted and I was on the phone with them so we rushed as one of the nicer shuttle drivers, Dad, and Daniel started throwing our kids, bags and stroller right into the RV. I got a seatbelt on Alan and Daniel grabbed Eddie on his lap and we sped off just as an offical looking (Ticket Writer) was approaching. That was the first $150 win of our Great Nevada RV Adventure :P

We made it safely to the Oasis Camp ground and it was time to RELAX!!! Mary and I did a grocery run and we made AWESOME homemade pizzas on their BigAss Grill and had a wonderful time catching up. Uncle Paulie stopped by on his way to work and visited for awhile. Then one of my very best friends from college, Nicole, was able to swing by and play with Alan and catch up. She only lives 10 minutes from the campground. We hope to see her again at some point during our visit. Daniel played in a poker tournament at the campground clubhouse and we are off to a great start on our vacation. Stay tuned for more Great Nevada RV Adventure Stories from the Saucer Crew.
