We have been parked in the Pin Oak Creek Campground in Missouri for the last month, but just because the Journey isn’t rolling doesn’t mean we’ve been sitting still. Our four Missouri granddaughters (we’ve another granddaughter in NJ, with a little sister due in July) have been occupying our days.
Little “Charlie” (Charlotte) has been doing what babies do, sleeping and eating and getting loved over.
We tried, somewhat unsuccessfully, to get all four girls together in one place, sit still and look at the camera at the same time for a picture. Little Bekah, at 23 months is a bundle of energy and to get her to pose was quite an adventure. Giving her a cell phone to distract her helped somewhat, but the screen gave her a purple glow to her face.
When we finally got her to put the cell phone down, she showed us what she thought of that idea.
The bigger sisters often sleep over in the Journey, they love to be here with us. Marti had them bake cookies one night.
We also introduced them to Geocaching. I had a hard time keeping up as they ran off to find a nearby cache.
One cache had us deep in some woods. Good thing we had a lot of practice with that when we pin hunted for the Corps of Engineers!
We ended up the day’s hunt up on an overlook over the town of Pacific, MO. Taylor got a kick out of climbing on a Civil War cannon displayed there.
Kierra liked using the binoculars there, but wasn’t happy that she couldn’t see her house.
We are making the most of our last week here, Friday we depart for Forest City, Iowa to the Winnebago Factory service center. We’re getting the inverter problem and that persnickety intermittent slide leak fixed, along with another small item or two.
Hopefully the repairs don’t take too long so we can sneak back for a couple more days with the girls before we head back to South Carolina in June. Every minute with them is precious. :c)
