More Time with Family and Friends

After dropping our son and grandkids off on Sunday Kevin and I headed to Scott AFB Famcamp in Illinois.  We are parked in the wooded area so not getting satellite which isn’t a good thing in this RV.. Kevin doesn’t like it when he can’t follow the Red Sox! Well, we are only here for a few nights. Tuesday morning we had an very early flight  out of St Louis into Houston and onto Mobile Alabama for Kevin’s surgery appointment for his ear.  We got as far as Houston and that is where we stayed..Fortunately I was smart enough to call the  drs office in Mobile  to confirm the appointment. They told me the appt was cancelled.. What, we didn’t cancel. To make a long story short, Humana VA messed it up and cancelled.  Now we have to wait for another consult and then they will call to reschedule him. Luckily, we hadn’t flown into Alabama and taken the cab to the office…..We made a visit out of the trip. Stayed at our daughters house for two nights and got to play with our 3 grandsons. I had time to go out for Mexican with friends and had a badly needed color and cut… 

Thursday afternoon we arrived back in St Louis.  We are currently back at the famcamp and plan on being here until Saturday.

Friday…Fun day!  We headed to the Casino Queen in St. Louis to meet up with Mac and Lynette, who had just arrived. We all went to lunch at the casino and did a little gambling.  Then back to the RV park Karen and Donnie had arrived. We visited for a short while before heading out.


We had dinner plans with our son and  two grandkids,  to see them one more time before leaving the area. Unfortunately we didn’t get to have any time with our daughter in law this trip, as she works weekends. After dinner we said our goodbyes..

How lucky to have seen and spent time with all five of our grandchildren this past week.  We are truly blessed with them all…
