Sat. Apr.30th 2011, A nice daytrip.

Join us as we travel North America in our Holiday Rambler Vacationer,
 since August 2006

       Today starts off wonderful, bright, sunny and warm. We had our coffees, computing etc.. and set off on a nice 2 hour drive in our car to visit my daughter, son-in-law and three grandchildren north of Toronto, not too much traffic today. On the way we passed Canada's Wonderland with rides operating on this warm sunny day. They are not supposed to open until May 8th, maybe just testing the equipment?

       We arrived about 12:30 and the kids were on the quiet side street, riding their bikes and just generally enjoying the beautiful day. The youngest and our first grand daughter all pretty in pink, with her curly red hair and bright blue eyes being such a doll, was the centre of attention most of the afternoon as the boys were being boys, trucks, bikes, swings, balls burning up their excess energy. Of course she is a natural dancer, as she demonstrated dancing with Elmo.

       We brought this nice new pedal truck out of the attic over the garage, along with a pedal race car for the boys to enjoy.

       It was last fall when we last saw them other than the webcam a few times over the winter. Sure is nice to get together, with everyones busy lifestyles. They had worked together to put on a very tasty early supper of baked pork chops, topped with a tomato/onion sauce, garlic mashed potatoes and broccoli. Followed by strawberries and ice cream and a very nice espresso afterwards.
so tasty, before the tomato sauce
       Well after a wonderful outside visit this afternoon and delicious meal, we headed out, back to the farm and our house, I like to get home before dark, which does not happen now until close to 9 pm. It was so nice to see everybody again even if only for a short visit. Our next visit we will be camped much closer or they may even visit one of our campgrounds this summer as well, they do like camping.
