We all gathered round the U.S. map before taking off on our first overnight.
This rig has already been to 3 states and we added 2 more this trip.
Nebraska & Iowa.
EVERY place we go, we WILL LEARN HISTORY about the state!
The capitals, state flowers, birds, etc... SO FUN!
Aw-Bells favorite spot...the top bunk!
Altough she was afraid to actually sleep there...
I found PLENTY of DOLLAR STORE items "to do" on the way!
coloring, word searches, magna doodles,
beatin the tar out of one another and the like.
Twas a short 3 hr drive to our overnight digs...
NO, we did not lock up the younguns and try to win our MIL..
Though the thought crossed my mind..
We did not stay here because we are "of the gamblin type" We stayed here because the purpose of our trip was to get something fixed on the RV and this was the closest park to the RV DOCTOR.
It was SO COOL because we pulled in our little spot, payed our $15, plugged in to the electric, closed all the blinds and it was like we were right at home (minus about 5500 square feet LOL)
I commenced to getting in my jammies & cooking salmon and pasta!
(my apologies for the 6 month preggo look)
All the kids ate all their supper..
Got settled in their beds, watched a movie and went to sleep.
It was SO MUCH FUN!
The next day, it only took them about 30 minutes to fix the minor problem with the stairs on the RV and we were OFF!
The Captain even talked me into driving..
for about 2 straight minutes and I was DONE!
It was SCARY!
It was SCARY!
We made one small stop on the way home to get a dress for MyMy's violin recital.
Next thing we knew, we were in a blizzard in Nebraska...
The Captain handled it VERY SMOOTHLY all the way home.
I was praying all the way.
We survived our first overnight trip all in one piece!
The only regret was COMING HOME!
Lee's Summit, MO
