Fun With Family, Part 1

Dates: June 18 to 29, 2018

Location: Washington State Fair Campground, Puyallup, Washington

The day after we arrived in Puyallup, Cole’s mother handed off our youngest granddaughter, Scarlet, to us. She had been watching the girls while Cole and Elizabeth are off on a combined business trip and anniversary celebration.

The first order of business was to walk over to Don’s Drive-In Restaurant for lunch.

We picked up Violet from school later that afternoon and both girls got to spend time with Nana and Pa, as well as spend the night at the trailer.

The next day, Wednesday, was a normal school day for Violet. Val dropped her off at school and picked her back up that evening.

On Thursday morning, Val took Violet to school for her last school day. Scarlet hung out with us during the morning.

Violet got out of school at noon, so we picked her up and headed to the airport to pick up Elizabeth. We all headed to the house. We kept Violet with us that evening as Elizabeth and Scarlet had to head to ballet rehearsal. Of course, frozen yogurt was involved.

On Friday, the whole family showed up for Scarlet’s first ballet recital. It was a pretty big crowd. All of the ballet and dance classes were taught at the local YMCA. Everyone was proud of our newest ballerina.

On Saturday, we all congregated at Cole’s Grandmother’s house out on Fox Island – a family tradition during the summer. On Sunday, we went to church with the family and hung out at the house that afternoon.

Malcolm’s buddy – Jet

Monday through Thursday of this past week primarily consisted of Malcolm working at the trailer during the day. He drove Val up to the house to spend the days with Elizabeth and the girls. Malcolm would drive up later after work and have dinner with the family and visit. A couple days we were out in the yard picking Rainier cherries off the tree.

Val and Elizabeth made several jars of cherry jam. Elizabeth also put quite a few cherries in their food dehydrator to make snacks.

Dates: June 29 to 30, 2018

Location: Gig Harbor RV Resort, Gig Harbor, Washington

On Friday the 29th, we packed up the trailer to head over to Gig Harbor for a week. The fairgrounds are hosting a dog show the weekend after July 4th and the campground was going to be booked up with dog show attendees. Plus, with July 4 in the middle of the week, we thought it would be nice to stay closer to the family place out on Fox Island.

On the way between campgrounds, we stopped at the local Goodyear commercial tire place and had two more new tires put on the trailer to match the two that were installed in Louisiana.

Once we got to Gig Harbor, we set the trailer up and went out to Fox Island for the afternoon to visit with family. We spent all of Saturday out at the island, as well.
