The Other Half

It was a strange trip.  It actually felt kind 'a weird.  And to add insult to it, we had a strong tailwind, which did us absolutely no good.

Why, you ask?  Don’t you always wish for a tailwind.  Yes.  But this one was wasted because we were in our car.

We headed out from our New Jersey “Home” to Pottstown, PA where our son Ryan, DIL Amber and their three girls have landed now that Ryan has transferred to the CGC CAPSTAN, in Philadelphia.

We had not seen our two granddaughters, Taylor and Kierra since leaving them after Christmas in their old home in Astoria, Oregon.  Plus, we had not met their new little sister, Rebekah.  So it was a trip well worth taking.

When we arrived, the older girls were thrilled to see their Mimi Marti (and Pa, too).

We sure missed our two beauties.

Their little sister, Rebekah wasn’t too sure how to take these two new strangers hugging and kissing her.

With patience and tender loving, Mimi Marti won her over and they started to converse with each other.

We had to get a picture of all the girls together, the other half of our grandkids.

Of course, Mimi had to get into the picture with her girls, too.  She says being a grandma is the best job she’s ever had.

It was a wonderful weekend, it went by too fast.  After we left we checked out a nearby campground, French Creek State Park, to see if it would work for us.  It was about 15 miles away and has a relatively good price, ($27/night +tax) that will work for our budget. 

Next trip to see the girls will be in the Journey, hopefully, we’ll have that same tailwind as we had in the car.

Thanks for visiting and feel free to leave a comment.

  2. We certainly agree... traveling a lot of miles is well worth it when you're visiting your kids and grandkids (and for us, great-grandkids). We see all of ours a lot more often now that we're the ones that are on the road. So happy for you that you didn't get burned out your first 6 months out. Sounds like you have a plan!

  3. What a wonderful time! You are really getting quite a group of grandkids. Talking about your RV campground budget isn't going to be anything compared to your Christmas present budget especially as those beautiful little ones get older.

    Love the photos .. memories in the making. I sure hope you download your blog so those munchkins will have access to all those memories in years to come.

  7. It is my experience that tail winds hardly ever occur when you are driving the rig. :) I had a good one today...driving the car.

  9. Wow, they are really adorable! Glad you finally got to see Rebekah in person. And, by the way, the RV park is probably even less expensive by the week or month...
