Doing the “regular” stuff!

Thursday, September 13th, 2012

Over the past week we have visited new friends, Becky & Loni in Twin Falls Idaho, old friends (I’m talking high school!), Kathy & Rob in Emmett, Idaho and cousin Rachelle and her family in Meridian, Idaho.  Besides visiting and enjoying getting caught up Paul did a little work and I walked the Boise Greenbelt which was right in-front of our RV park.

As much fun as this year has been for travel I am SOOOOO ready to get back to the Bay Area and enjoy my family and of course start on some of those home improvements the kids have lined up for us!  Stay tuned……

 

We will remember this day! Make sure you read the WHOLE post!!!

Paul and I woke up in a Walmart Parking lot in Butte Montana, had breakfast and hit the road towards Yellowstone National Park.  Montana is a lot of open space and the smoke was still pretty thick so the scenery is not that special.  We did find a nice spot to stop along the Madison river.  We saw lots of fly fisherman in small boats nagivating the river.  Across from our little picnic area I spotted a large white spot that appeared to be moving.  We get out the binoculars and across the river is a very large bald eagle!  Very cool.  We also saw a lone antelope and a single deer eating along the road.

Our new home is along the banks of Henry’s Lake in a very nice state park where we will spend the Labor Day Weekend.

A very nice sunset

Sitting here, watching the lake and then the sunset we got the great news we have been waiting for all week!  We are HOMEOWNERS!  After over a year of searching and almost 7 months since our first offer on this house we finally got the keys at 5:30 pm!   We helped our girls buy a home in Campbell.  At several moments including earlier this week I thought it wasn’t going to really happen but it did!  Now the hard work begins!  Our girls will be living there and we will visit often
