Well the end of the week was rainy,windy and way below normal temps. So for me it means keeping busy inside. I did some quilting and baking. The day before Mother's Day was really pretty and you could tell with all the people at the campground. Everyone was out and enjoying the great outdoors. Kids biking, people fishing and boating, it nice to see families enjoying this nice park.
We had planned to have a Mother's Day get together at Justin's place. Guess what it's raining on Mother's Day. We brought back fish, shark, and a couple lobster tails. That's what we are cooking. Both my boys were there and my daughter in law. We were joined by Katie's mom and sister. The food was great, we tried some new things... And enjoyed some of our favorite things as well. The weather was lousy that's for sure.

Thursday May 1, Rain,rain,rain , I'm beginning to think this spring thing is never gonna happen. Not only with the rain but the cooler than normal temperatures. On the other hand I'm getting lots of quilting done. Jeff had to go fill up our propane tank, we've been using it to heat the rig. It's been so cold the heat pump doesn't cut it. I think we've become babies with the cold weather. On a good note Jeff brought me home a plant for May Day.

April 22, Big moving day, we are heading to our new home for the next 5 months. We lucked out with the weather, it was really pretty. We didn't leave early, no reason to its just about 15 miles. When we arrived we knew where to go and what we needed to do. We are located in the first campground loop. Our site number is 27. All the sites in our loop are pull thrus, but all the sites are 30 amp. That will be the hard part. We've survived 30 amps many times before. Just have to be careful when we turn on things. Since we are hosts we have a water hookup and sewer. The second loop has 50 amp service. Still no water or sewer hookups. Our site is the campground host spot but our sign hasn't been put up yet. Guess we aren't on duty yet. Carl stopped by to welcome us, he is the park ranger. Next we were welcomed by Joan the park manager. It's very pretty out here and our site is located right across from the lake. The feel of all those that work here is super friendly. Really excited about our new position. We had one more visitor, our son Justin brought out his puppy Barkley, he's a miniature dachshund. He's staying with us a couple days while both our boys go to Chicago to watch the Blackhawks.

Friday April 18, Woke up to a beautiful day. Both Jeff and I were ready to get to Cedar Rapids, the good weather was a bonus. We left around 9:30 and didn't have any issues. We stayed at Morgan Creek, it's a county park in Cedar Rapids. We had some coupons from last year and it's real close to ours kids. We wasn't for sure if the water was on but when we drove in we saw the hoses hooked up so we were in luck. There were a few campers but lots of sites to chose from. We pulled into site #16 which was a pull through. We set up what we had to, grabbed a quick bite and then headed into our oldest sons house. His wife and daughter were at home today. It was good to see the family and wonderful to get hugs and kisses from the kids. School got out early and our grandson came home from school, which is literally right behind there house. He jumped the fence and into my arms....great hugs!!! Our son Seth got home from work and I even got a hug from him. We decided to meet up at the ice rink to watch Ashton and Seth do stick time. Before heading to the rink stopped by our younger sons, Justin's house. He had a few things for me to sew up...( he's training a puppy still ). After watching them skate went to Seth's for a quick dinner. Ashton came home with us. We played some Yahtzee and headed to bed....what a full wonderful day.
