The One We’ve Been Waiting For

Our newest grandkid (and fifth granddaughter) arrived on Sunday, April 27th.  Of course, we were in Florida for the weekend when she was born, after waiting in Missouri for her for the last several weeks.  Good timing on our part.

Here she is, Charlotte Reagan Dahl, all of 8 lbs. and 3 oz..

Mimi Marti is only too happy to hold her.

Even her new “Big Sister” Rebekah (who is 23 months old herself) is thrilled with little Charlotte, whom they are going to nickname “Charlie”.

We’re staying here ready to pitch in as needed until 9 May, when we head to the Winnebago Factory in Iowa for some repairs on the Journey.  After the repairs, we plan on returning for a few more days before moving on.  Have to get as much of a “granddaughter fix” as we can.  :c)

Thanks for visiting and feel free to leave a comment.

  19. Had meant to comment earlier. Aren't Grandkids - GRAND?
    We met briefly at RV Dreams Rally in TN back in 2011. We got started fulltiming about 8-10 months ahead of you and wouldn't trade it for anything. We had a Meridian, very similar to your Journey, but traded it this winter for a new Journey.
    We spent last week at Camp Winnebago in Forest City, and hope you have a great time there - we sure did. Met some great people.
