Happy Mothers’ Day

Current Location: Fort Toulouse Campground, Wetumpka, Alabama

We picked up our son this morning and went to church. It was a nice service and afterwards we assisted in clearing the stage for this week’s kindergarten graduation on Thursday night. Malcolm will be photographing the event. After church, we went to the local Japanese place for lunch. Not crowded at all, which was nice.

After dropping our son off at home, we came back to the trailer, changed clothes and did some errands around the trailer. Later we went to WalMart to buy a few items for the trailer. Once back at the park, Malcolm practiced his golf swing for a while. We also unloaded a few totes from our basement to make room for some items we’ll take out to our daughter when we visit in late June after our rally.

Back at the campground, we had a simple dinner of sandwiches and chips, eating them outside in the nice weather. We talked to the gentleman camped next door for a while. He and his wife are in their mid-80’s and have driven their motorhomes (they are on their fourth one) through the 49 continental United States and all the provinces of Canada. Due to health issues, they’ve curtailed most of their trips. They just live up the road in Montgomery and were coming out here for a short getaway.

Our niece sent a text message to Val this afternoon asking if we could come to her graduation on Sunday, June 2 as well as a cookout that the family is having. We originally were going to be coming back home on that day, but decided to alter our plans to return on Monday, June 3 so we can stay in Kentucky an extra day for that event.

We rode bikes around the park for a bit this evening to get some air and exercise. The camp host told us that two big scout groups are coming in this coming weekend for camping. Might be good that we’re pulling out on Saturday. Friday promises to be fun.
