A Great Weekend

After finishing a full day in the service bay at Red Bay on Friday, we packed up and headed for Birmingham.
It was nice to get aways from the campground for a few days. We enjoyed the Crimson Clover all along the highways
This is such a nice highway if you need to travel between Memphis and Birmingham,
and there are several fuel stops that are large enough for RVs. It is a road well worth marking on your maps. And it wasn't long until we found that we were

to our exit which would take us into

the city and then on South to

my brother's house where my sister in law always has a cute

sign on the door! But, Uncle Mark was waiting for

this welcome from Danielle, the youngest of our four nieces.
We also enjoyed visiting with

Megan, who is enrolled in nursing school at the University of Alabama, Birmingham

and Evan, our oldest niece, who is an Auburn graduate and now working in Birmingham.
I am sorry we missed Sarah, who is in college in Kentucky.
What a beautiful weekend it was to sit out on the back deck and enjoy the spring

While Danielle played

and Conlee took pictures while I was taking pictures

of Danielle and her caterpillar

and jumping on the trampoline

and watching the birds

And digging for worms...with this being the big catch for the day

Danielle wants Megan to stop her studying to look at her worm and Dad, you can look too

This morning Dannielle and I had to pose for mom to take our picture in our pretty church clothes.

We had a fun two days with family. We got to meet and share dinner with friends of Dan and Conlee's on Friday evening, we had full day on Saturday and a good visit today. Soon it was time to think about packing up for the trip back to Red Bay, but first we made a stop by Evan's to see her apartment. Gosh, it is hard to believe these girls are grown up and own their own. Then after a short visit there, we had one last stop to make as we had made plans to meet Jim, Ellie, Carol and Steve for dinner. Dan, Conlee, and Danielle joined us and got to meet and have dinner with some of our friends.

After a great dinner at Jim and Nick's, we had to finally get our good bye hugs and get on the road as,

the sun sets on yet another adventure. And, as I close this post for the evening, we have just arrived back in Red Bay to the campground where we will be back in service bay #5 at 7:00 a.m. in the morning and start another week at Camp Red Bay.


  1. Well Dortha looks like you had a great weekend. Good luck with your week and your service work. Us Well we are just waiting for winter to end in Canada it seems to be taking along time this year. I am thinking that we will be jumping right from winter to summer and missing the spring part.
    A big Hello to Mark

    Take Care and have a great Week.

  2. Good to see you got to visit with the family. I know you enjoyed it and now you are back to waiting...
