Time with Rachel…………

Well, Grammie got her grandchild fix over the last two days………. Thursday and Friday.  On Thursday, we went over to our daughters house early, about 10:30AM, and we picked up Rachel since her dad got through early with patients at the hospital, and they were going to work on the new house. 

Since my definition of “early” differs quite a bit from theirs, instead of facing the possibility of picking up Rachel even earlier on Friday morning, we opted to keep Rachel overnight in the Bus.  Grammie and Rachel had a sleepover!!!

Since we did not pack food for her or toys in the Bus, we had to first stop off at the local Kroger's for supplies.  Along with the milk, turkey, and cereal, Rachel also spotted a big pink ball, so we had to depart with 99 cents to buy it…….. just can’t say ‘no’ to a sweet little girl.  There’s another one named, Aubrey, in Victoria that has figured out the same thing.  Here’s the pic……..

We spent the afternoon at the Bus where we had lunch and she took a nice long nap.  When she woke up, we watched a video and Grammie took her for a walk around the RV park………..

After the walk, we went to Wal-Mart to pick up some supplies for our trip, and Rachel found a Halloween decoration with a Minnie Mouse on it….. so another 99 cents out of the diesel fuel bucket!!!  Plus, she had to carry it out of the store……….

When we got home, the sleepover started, and of course, since we did not have a bed, we all slept on the couches up front!!  First, another video on the front TV……

We stopped the video long enough to get her bed set up, and she and Grammie dressed alike, and then started the video again before bedtime.

Rachel was a really good girl on Friday morning when she woke early on my terms………… almost 9:00AM!!!

After breakfast and a bath, she and Grammie dressed up again and I tried to take pictures, and in my opinion, they turned out so good, I could not narrow it down to less than what follows……….

Since we were leaving on Friday, we had to vacate our site at the RV park at 11:00AM, so we drove over to a Wal-Mart near the old house.  Since Mike is ‘doctoring’ longer than he thought today,  Deanne came by where we are parked and picked up Patsy to do some shopping.  They left me with a sleeping Rachel……. what trouble could I get into with that??

Patsy and I left Little Rock on Thursday night and drove toward the Tiffin Service Center in Red Bay, AL.  We managed to get to Fulton, MS, about 30 miles from Red Bay and spent the night on a Wal-Mart parking lot. We drove the whole 300 miles in heavy rain!   We will check into the Service Center campground later on Saturday morning.
