Mary just got an e-mail from the White House in Washington D.C. It seems that either we got bumped from our scheduled White House tour or the tours have been canceled for the time frame we will be in D.C. We were looking forward to taking the grand kids on the tour while we visited our nation's capitol. There will still be plenty to see and do but this was going to be a high point on this trip. Mary is trying to call in any favors from friends who still live in the D.C. area.
On a better note we have been able to get a lot done to get ready for this trip. Fixing the shocks shouldn't take long once the parts arrive. Then we just have to get the kids gear, clothes, and whatever else they want to take with them stowed in the RV. There will be a crash course on living in an RV and we will be ready to go.
I don't know who is more excited. Could it be Mary and me wanting to give the kids a trip they will always remember? Maybe it is the kids wanting to go on an adventure. Or it could be Rachel looking forward to a quiet summer without all the drama that comes with being a single working mom trying to keep 3 kids busy and out of trouble for 2 months. What matters is we are looking forward to some quality time with our grand kids and Rachel is hoping the kids have a summer that they will never forget. I guess she remembers the trips she went on with us when she was their age.
Well it is time to relax before the next round of preparations starts here in our home in Zephyrhills because....
Home is where we park it,
Frank and Mary
