Trip to the Rockies (Part 1)

The night before we leave on our "Search for Snow" trip, we decide which

direction we will go. There are soooo many options, you know?

"This is gonna be exciting"

Doing last minute inspections.

You never know where this RV might go.

Uncle Jim bidding us, "farewell."

Uncle Jimbo's jar that we are to fill with snow and our mission is to do just that.

"O.K. Gabriel, I've had enough. It's time to duke it out"

j/k We actually stopped to patch a broken brake line. We had to order the part

to repair it. (Duct Tape, it always works):)

"Attack you, who me, NEVER"

"Some day little sister, some day"

"I'm soooo frightened"

"I'm innocent, I would never threaten the "Little Sister"!

Mr. Doolin sent us a special package to be opened on Christmas.

This is half of what was inside. The other half looked the same way.

"Thanks, Mr. Doolin, for the eight packs of oreos"

Mmm, mmm, good


Cathy, Jord and Michael head to North Carolina to the Wilsons for Christmas,

while we head to Tennessee.

Liv cooks a wonderful Christmas dinner in the RV.

We stopped at a beautiful park to enjoy it.

Thank you Liv, you're always a blessing.!

"I am sooo glad to leave McDonalds"
Actually, I'm being blown away in Arkansas.

Cows are Out, AHHHH!!

Frank, Joe and Vic waded through the swamp most of the night to build the fence back for us.

A Friend really does love at ALL times. Thankyou to all the cowboys :)

Just finished eating at the "Hayloft".
