Our first weekend in Indiana was spent at our granddaughter, Emily’s, wedding. She had a beautiful outdoor wedding at our son and his wife’s home.
We started living in our 5th wheel full time in June of 2007. Since then, we’d only stayed out of it at night during repairs last fall.
We decided to make the trip back to Indiana this summer without the 5th wheel. It was quite a different experience for us to be “away from home”.
We spent the first two weeks with out daughter, Dania, and granddaughter, Chelsey. She has a small “mother-in-law” cottage beside her home, so we had our own little place.
Then we spent 2 weeks with older son and his wife, Chris and Jeanne, and grandson, Cameron. Our younger son was in the middle of both moving and starting a new job position, so it did not work out this time for us to visit with him.
The last day of the month brought a mini family reunion. Ron’s brother and some of his family came for the day. Traditionally, since leaving Indiana, we have had a “summer Christmas”, but this year, as so few were able to attend, we decided to disperse with that idea and just make it a relaxed reunion. Everyone had a good time catching up with each other and reminiscing. Just as last year, Little Will was the center of attention.
We especially missed seeing our youngest grandchild, Alyssa, who is currently in Basic Training for the Army. We are so proud of her for choosing to serve in the military.
After a good month with everyone, we started back for New Mexico on June 30.
