We spent most of the summer in the area with our kids and grandkids – helping out with daycare when needed. They are growing so fast and it’s fun seeing their individual personalities develop.
We spent several weekends with our dancing friends at festivals in New Prague, MN,Clarissa, MN, Stump Lake, ND, Bird Island, MN, Brandon, MN, Bechyn, MN and Litomysl, MN. These are always fun – camping and getting together with a lot of people we only see during the summer along with connecting with some of our TX friends.Gary and Marjorie and our bunch in Stump Lake
In June we celebrated our 35th wedding anniversary and retirement with a party and dance at Roscoe, MN. Had music all afternoon, followed by dinner- had a great time with about 200 friends and relatives!
Vicky continues to work part time for the one of the Minnesota resort associations so we had a few meetings to attend in the northern part of the state. This weekend is their fall Resorters Conference in Ottertail so we’ll be heading up to that early Sunday morning thru Tuesday.
In September we were in Chicago to celebrate with Vicky’s brother and wife their 40th wedding anniversary. Shortly after that we were in New Orleans for an insurance conference. I’m on the board for a fraternal life insurance company in St Paul and we get to attend the annual conference at various locations around the country. We had great meetings and a fun time at the grand party.
When we are not traveling around we hang out an RV park new New London. There’s a number of retired couples that spend the summer there along with some permanent residents – a great bunch of people and we have our daily happy hour, potlucks, fish frys, casino runs, garage sale runs and whatever else comes up. The annual fishing contest resulted in the awards you see in the picture below – and a whole lot of fun!!!
We will be heading to TX Wednesday morning – will be there for a couple weeks.. Coming back to MN for grand kid birthday parties, Thanksgiving and meetings for both Vicky and myself and we will celebrate Christmas with our family on Dec 15 – flying back to TX on Dec 17 for the rest of the winter.
So life continues to be good. maybe we’ll have more to blog about when we head south!
