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.

Landing At Palo

Saturday April 30- Jeff and I were both up early and ready to go. Another weather issue to deal with. We left at 7 a.m.We are not usually that early but this is a special day. The picture above isn't when we arrived but after the weather cleared up. We missed the rain while driving but as soon as we pulled in that's when it started. Only set up what we had to. Then we jumped in the truck and went to Seth and Katie's. Justin was over there too. It was so good to see everyone and the hugs were extra special. Went to lunch at Emil's Hideaway. The food was good and so was being with family. The rain just kept coming and the temperature just kept dropping. Hailey wasn't feeling all that good so after eating we didn't stay that long. We headed back to finish setting up some stuff.

Sunday May 1- Another gray and gloomy day with lots of rain. Went to Seth and Katie's for breakfast and I brought cinnamon rolls. We spent some time playing with the kids and catching up on what they have been doing. Sissy and I even cleaned out under her bed and found lots of treasures.

We left here and went by Justin and Molly's house, we had our mail sent there and Molly just got back so we needed to say hi to her. We had one more place to go today....Seth and Justin had a hockey game tonight so we made it back in to town to watch them win...2-0....yeah!!!

Monday May 2- This week was busy setting everything up. The rig and truck were both really dirty because of the rain. So definitely needed to get those washed. We had to unload the kayaks and bikes. Since we are here for so long we have lots of setting up to do. We also had to get back into our routine of cleaning the shower house. Lots to catch up on. We had some stuff stored at the shop and needed to get those. We also had some doctor appointments to get to. Jeff went first and I visited the same doctor, I had never seen her. We are both really happy with her and the way they run there office. Jeff knows how I don't like doctor appointments. We had both noticed a shop across the street that is Kathy's Pies. We have had them before and they are really good. When I came out of my appointment Jeff had bought a whole pie....Bayou good.

Tuesday we got to go watch Hailey at her tumbling, she has really been working hard and you can see the improvement. The pictures aren't that good because they are through glass.

Thursday Ashton had hockey practice but before going there we had to stop and watch Justin play at the Hibu job fair....Seth does the hiring so he was there too.

Next stop Ashton's hockey practice. I can tell that he has been spending a lot of time on the ice. All of his skills have gotten better. Really proud of how much he has improved.

When we left hockey practice we had a extra passenger with us. Hailey came home with us to spend the night. Then on Friday Ashton was joining his sister, so both that night. Hailey went home Saturday and Ashton stayed Saturday night. We had a busy few days. First lets start with our Hailey's adventure. She enjoys playing memory with Papa...she wins alot. We also made her mommy a potholder for mother's day. We spent Friday doing what she wanted.

Then Ashton came out and we had supper played some games and watched T.V. Then Saturday morning we had our annual Easter egg hunt. Better late than never. First time to have it at the park and I think that worked out really well. I think the kids had a great time too.

Seth and Katie came and got Hailey and then it was Ashton time. We got him a compound bow for Christmas and now we are going to shoot this thing. It was really fun and he is pretty good already.

We had a great time with each of them with some solo time and enjoyed having them both too. Jeff and I had found a church we wanted to go to. Ashton wanted to go with so away we went. It's mothers day and while I was in church Justin texted me. After church we went over to Seth's. Justin was there so Seth, Justin, Jeff and I went out for lunch. Nice to spend time with my favorite fellows.

Well this has been a whirlwind. We have had a lot of things to do and a lot of catching up to do. I'm happy to be back with the family and happy to be a mom to these boys and grammy to Ashton and Hailey.
