Son Brandon comes to visit!

It's a family reunion! Brandon and his girlfriend, Megan, drove up to Charlottesville from Melbourne, Florida, on Thursday. It took them about 12 hours. They arrived around 6:30 p.m. It is the first time in 2 1/2 years that we have all been together. It was truly a special few days.

Brandon brought presents for Ronan, of course, for his third birthday which was Wednesday. He brought him motorcycles--one green Ninja which is like his motorcycle and a black Ninja which is like Megan's. Ronan was thrilled with them. He loves anything that moves. . . trucks, equipment, cars, scooters, motorcycles, airplanes, helicopters, etc. He also got him a T-ball set and so we all went out in the yard to watch Ronan hit the ball. He really didn't need much instruction. . . he has quite an arm on him. He tends to favor his left hand when hitting the ball. Brandon says that is good, because left-handed players get more money! Hah! We may already have a star on our hands.

Friday evening all the kids came out to our camp at the KOA. We had a campfire and we grilled steaks. We also had a veggie plate and fruit plate and salad. Jocelyn brought some brown jasmine rice and we all ate till we were stuffed.

Afterwards we all sat around the fire and enjoyed each other's company. Ronan fell asleep in his mother's arms. He is such a little sweetie. We had both Whiskey, Jocelyn and Tom's standard Poodle and Neal. They are great friends. The party broke up around 10 p.m. We hated to see them go.

Today we left Charlottesville at 8 a.m. and headed north. We are camped at our "way point" in Gallipolis, Ohio. Tomorrow we will be at Camp Pull-Tab in Ohio. They are really great friends of ours and we met them when we all first started full-timing. We are anxious to see them.

Till next time. . .
