Yesterday was our last day in Gillette and a pretty laid back day at that. I started the packing up process while Mark rearranged the outside bays. We sit outside most of the afternoon enjoying the sunshine and friendships.
Last night, we pulled off a really big
surprise birthday party for Marcia. She will soon turn 50 and we couldn't let her leave without a party.
gag gifts, and lots of
balloons all around her motor home!
Mark and I were especially glad to have
Jack, Nell, and her mom, Blondie (friends from Fort Worth) join us for the party. We have had a great week with them and they have fit right in to our group.
What a great evening! Happy Birthday Marcia!
This morning, we were up early and taking care of last minute details before time to pull out. There were hugs all around and lots of "see you down the road" said before it was finally time to pull out.
Mark and I had discussed several different directions to take from Gillette, but none of them seemed to come together until just a day or so ago. It was then that we decided we wanted to make a stop in Fort Collins, Colorado and try and surprise Rod and Deb. However, I needed a little more information about their whereabouts, and had to include Rod in our plan.
We arrived today shortly after noon and pulled off the surprise visit without a hitch! So, we are
parked here, just down from
Rod and Deb and looking forward to a fun couple of days.
The fun started this evening with
Rod and Shelli, their daughter, grilling some yummy burgers. We also enjoyed
meeting Ashton and Riley, Nana's favorite grandchildren.
What a great family...Todd was there too, but I missed him in the pictures.
A fun, fun day! I can't wait to see what tomorrow has in store.
