A Visit "Home"

It had been 10 months since we had been "home" and over 2 years since we had the RV "home".  We had a great time visiting with friends and family and reacquainting ourselves to the area (and non-stop changes; new houses, stores, malls, etc.) May 1-June 19.

Our first order of business was having our first on-board guest with us on moving day (from VA to PA).  In a previous blog I mentioned meeting "PA System", an AT thru-hiker from Mt. Holly (who we met in VA).  Due to an injury, and perfect timing of our travels, we were able to bring him back to his home in PA.

Our 9 year old grandson, Drew, is involved in many sports and so we were able to catch the end of his soccer season.

Our grandson, Noah, age 6.5, is also involved in sports and we caught the last of his t-ball season.

The Phanatic's Birthday Celebration

We took the boys with us for 8 days to Lake Glory Campground near Knoebels. What a fun week of fishing, going to the park, family reunion and just time together!

Gigi caught the smallest fish in the lake!

Pap & the boys all geared up for fishing

 Here's another small world meeting!  I used to work out with Charlotte at the gym many years ago.  We ended up in the same pavilion (right next to each other) at Knoebels.  It's been over 10 years since we've seen each other!

the boys picked flowers for me!
