Linda & I went camping for a few days- she needs foot surgery (plate put in left foot) and I had a colonoscopy- we decided to go chill. Very relaxing- some fireworks and her brother won a YETI cooler which he gave Linda for her birthday! I read 2 books in 3 days- in the past 3 weeks I have read 5 books! We are home now catching up on house chores- still very hot here.

books

I read the first book awhile back- it is a series with the same main characters- I enjoyed them if anyone is looking for books to read.

trip12

Linda and I went to the river- here is trip #12. There were trees being cut down- it was quite entertaining. Bear really enjoyed rolling in the sawdust. Worst part of the trip- my crown feel off- I was just at the dentist last week for a cleaning-I’m blaming it on them.

Family Events

Our first trip of the season…cut short by RAIN! Left Friday when Linda got off work, came home Sunday afternoon just beating the storm. Saturday was very hot- Heat index of 103. This was the first time we went camping and no one else was at the river (brother came just for a couple hours). We got to do all our own cooking, no internet or comforts of the cabin (everything moved out because it flooded) so everything was done in our RV!

trip8

We went on a hike (our goal for every trip this year)- took some pictures.

walk

Some things never change- Bear always has to pee once we get on the road so we stop to accommodate and we seem to always stop at DQ.

This trip we did have a new friend- Baxter came along- he had a lot of fun and fit right in.

Camping

It started with 1 and then another and we inspired each other to get healthy…some of us still have a way to go- one day at a time!
