Easter With Our Grandkids -- Thursday!

For Easter this year, our DIL decided the kids needed a motorhome trip.  Suspecting that it may be cool, we made reservations at a campground that we had taken the grandkids to last summer, The Lagoons, in Rockport, Texas.

On Thursday before Easter, the day we had planned to leave, Matthews school had decided that his class was going to have an Easter egg hunt in the morning at a local Assisted Living facility, HearthStone, where Patsy’s dad is a resident.   So, our plans ‘flexed’ to picking up Matthew and Aubrey from school at 1:00pm, and then heading to Rockport.  Rick and Laura would drive down on Friday, after she got off work at noon. 

We met Matthew’s class at the rest home, and watched him enjoy meeting the Easter bunny and getting candy filled eggs.  Here are some pictures:

When we got to the campground, the kids were in a hurry to get into the pool……. they had remembered it!!  Last summer, they got brave enough to just use their floaties on their arms.  Now, they got a little nervous, and opted for the floaties and the floating noodles.  They had a lot of fun, and it did not take long to lose the noodles!!!!

After a while, we went back to the Bus for lunch, and then we found a playground near the beach.

Just a quick hello to tell you how much I enjoyed reading your blog. The pictures of those kids are priceless! It must be fun traveling in such a comfortable motorcoach. I live on the Central Oregon Coast and we have a very nice park called Pacific Shores that has a view of the Yaquina Lighthouse. Seeing your blog made me wonder if you have ever traveled our beautiful coastline, I suspect you have! Have a pleasant day, come visit my blog if you like, I would enjoy seeing you there.
