Days 20 and 21 - Our House

Yes, we made it safely home yesterday just a little past noon. Unloading the RV goes much faster with the kids' help but it's still a lot of work for all of us. Rich was tired; Maryland to our house in a day and a half involves some long hours behind the wheel. On this trip he drove slightly over 2,200 miles just in the RV, not counting all the miles he drove in the car when we were sightseeing. The most shocking expenditure was the $287.55 we paid in tolls! I don't know why, but that just blows my mind.

After we entered Illinois it was another hour's drive to our home.

I wish I had taken a photo of the huge piles of laundry we unloaded but I have most of it done now. Today we were back to doing what we do...having a great time! We were at the theater this morning for the first showing of Monsters University which we all LOVED! The MU campus shared characteristics with Harvard and including students rubbing the foot of a statue! So cool since we were just at Harvard.

Don't miss seeing how these two became best friends and got to work on the Scare Floor!

We had planned to swim after the movie rained, really rained, with some thunder and lightning thrown in for good measure. We've decided that if we don't say the word 's---' maybe we can trick the weather into being sunny tomorrow. Every time we have planned to 's---' it has rained.

Since Shelby especially likes to shop at Meijer, because they have cute shoes and clothes that can't be found in AZ, we went there after the movie. We also needed a few groceries for dinner. While there, G'pa bought a chain to make Shelby a necklace with a Niagara Falls souvenir purchased for that purpose...cute!

And the boys had football practice in the sports clothing section...they practice football wherever they are, with or without a ball. As you'll see, they did find one on a shelf there.

After dinner we went to Marianne's house to hear about her trip to Poland and to bring the girls home. They were pretty excited to see us when we got there. After a while they pretty much ignored us, like always!

Marianne always finds the coolest things to give the kids and today was no exception. These red, white, & blue glasses with flashing lights were a huge hit. Just look at them doing duck faces in her mirror with the glasses flashing.
