Home again

After an uneventful trip, we arrived safely at Blackhawk campground in Illinois where we spent the Memorial Day  weekend with 7 other couples including our son and daugher-in-law and grandsons. Monday morning we left and drove to South Bend, IN. to my brother's house where we spend time in his front yard.

Linda and our grandson Jordan, and her mom Maggie left for Washington D.C. Tuesday morning at 5:50am and arrived safely about 12 hours later. They spent a week and returned back to South Bend on the following Wednesday and we left for Illinois on Saturday morning.  Jordan had a great time in DC and is anxious to go back and spend some more time with his Uncle Danny and Aunt Dee Dee.

We normally stop on the Indiana toll road to dump our holding tanks, but they have closed all of their dump facilitys. We went on to the kids house in Woodstock, IL and than on to a state park to dump the tanks.

Jeff and Lorie suprised us by doubling the size of the camping pad and putting all new gravel in with a water and electric connection right on the pad so we do not have to run extension cords to get power or an extra 50 foot of hose to get water. Very nice. Thank you Jeff and Lorie.

We will leave on our family vacation next Saturday morning, driving almost 400 miles to Cedar Point amusement park in Sandusky, OH. to spend 4 nights before moving on to the Niagra Falls area for 5 nights. Than back, via Canada, to the Henry Ford museum and Greenfield Village near Detroit, MI.

Hope all is well
love to all of ya
Jim and Linda
