Grandkid’s Summer 2013 Vacation #2

On Thursday, we will leave on our 2nd summer trip with our grandkids.  This time, we will be traveling to Little Rock to visit with our third grandchild, Rachel.  Aubrey and Matthew have not seen her since last September, and are excited to see how much she has grown.

Matthew is, however, more excited about the season tickets that I purchased for him and Aubrey to Wild River Country in Little Rock.  We will be in Little Rock for about 6 days, and the season passes were less than the cost of two daily entries……… Now we can come and go as we please.  Seniors, like Patsy and I, are free!

On the  way to Little Rock, we plan to overnight at Atlanta State Park, near Atlanta, TX.  Also during this trip, we will spend two nights at the Crater of Diamonds State Park in Murphreesboro, AR.  This state park also has a nice water park.

The kids got here on Tuesday because Mom had a ‘work trip’ scheduled to go to Salt Lake City.  They went with us to get the Bus out of the storage garage, and they are really excited about the trip.  We have begun the packing this morining, and Matthew and I went to Wal-Mart to buy supplies for the trip…………. with him helping me, the supplies included some cookies, candy, root beer, etc.  I thought he was RIGHT!!  Since they have become ‘seasoned’ RV travelers, they are becoming helpful with the packing and make-ready, exclusive of the food choices!!!

Next post will come after we hit the highways!
