Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.

Morgan Creek/Memorial Day


Like I said before we decided to leave a day earlier than we had planned and were happy we did. Morgan Creek was filling up fast. We got a spot right next to the shower house and was glad of that cause of all the serious weather we've been having. Nice to have a strong shelter close by. This trip was the first one with our new kayak rack on top the truck. We had previously carried them in our rig. Still have some fine tuning on the rack and how we load, but I think it's gonna be way better.

Wednesday and Thursday we just kinda hung out around the campsite. I did put up my hummingbird feeder. I love when they come around so much fun to watch. On Friday it was a beauty of a day so Jeff took his kayak to Pleasant Creek to go fishing. He got 1 good one. Then we met Seth, KT and the kids at Pizza Ranch for supper to ranch a roo it up.


We had made plans to go back to Keokuk, Iowa for the weekend. The weather was horrible, it poured rain all the way there. Then that kinda put a damper on the big event we were going to. It was a graduation party, good thing they had a big garage. After the party we went to visit and spend the night at my best friends house (Judy). We mostly just visited and caught up on things. We left Judy's Sunday morning around 10:30 wanted to stop at the nursing home to see my uncle Bob. Found out that's a good time to go calling cause we ran into 3 or 4 people we hadn't seen in quite awhile. We both were happy we stopped.

On Memorial Day it rained, rained and rained. We met the kids at Perkins for breakfast. With the weather being as it is we took in a movie, The Great Gatsby was not as good as we had hoped. When we got back to the campground we just watched TV and I finished the quilting part on my quilt. Oh yeah for you hockey fans the Blackhawks won so it tied up 3 games to 3. Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday rain, rain, rain. I did manage to finish binding my quilt and get started on a T-shirt quilt for the girl that graduated. With this weather, all the rain the bugs are horrible so even if you get a decent day you can hardly stand to sit outside.

The weekend arrived and I had promised to paint my younger sons table and chairs so we headed over there. We did it inside, good thing cause it rained again. I also recovered the chairs and they look
good. Also watched the Blackhawks win again.

Sunday came and the weather took a dive it's really cold out. Boy this Iowa weather is something, you never know what you'll wake up to.

Another week and its nice today I did some cleaning, and gave our dog Belle a haircut. We went in and picked up Ashton to stay with us a couple nights. Schools out and his summer camp doesn't start til next Monday. We thought he could see how we pack everything up. He thought it was neat how the slides pulled in and everything had a place . So we are off tomorrow to another site.
