After a quick trip yesterday to Colby, KS to meet Heidi, we (LeRoy and Anne and Jadelyn) are now back at Golden Bell in Liberty.
Traveling with grandkids has been a fun experience. Our two oldest granddaughters were already grown when we moved into the bus and have never had time to travel with us. Alma, our college student granddaughter, stayed a week or so with us every summer from the time she was 8 until high school activities got in the way. Mostly she came to visit in Wichita but after we were in Liberty, she flew to meet us for sightseeing in Colorado and Wyoming. Beginning in the summer of 2011, Ben and Bailey spent time with us each summer and there were always two of them to share each experience. Starting three years ago, Jadelyn came along with them and we really had a bus full. This year the twins turned 16 and are busy with jobs, so Jadelyn is here for a week by herself for the very first time. We’re hoping to do enough fun stuff that she won’t be totally bored! She is still recovering from a broken foot, so even though the “shoe” comes off mid-week, hiking probably isn’t on the agenda. This is beautiful country, though, so we’ll at least explore it from the roads.
Speaking of roads, Jadelyn and I will be exploring some new ones next weekend. My great-niece Cait Wissel is getting married next weekend near Weeping Water, NE and I will take Jadelyn there to meet her mother. We’ll spend the night with my sister Florence Marie, who is the grandmother of the bride. It should be a fun trip, although I’m going to be thankful for Google Maps, since I’ve never traveled that route before. It is our weekend to be on duty in the campground, so LeRoy can’t go along. Someone has to stay and clean bathrooms and pick up trash!
