Driving Miss Donna - what does this mean? Whenever I want to go somewhere, if Don is home he will usually drive. He always says he is driving miss Donna! This blog is for our travels, usually with our truck and fifth wheel trailer, but sometimes in our other wheels. When we are not vacationing check in for updates, although less frequent, about our life at home and our wonderful family:)

May - Don't Blink

Ever listen Kenny Chesney?  His song Don't Blink holds good advice.

Upon arriving home it was time to check in with our work situations, catch up with clients, and start organizing our attendance at the grandkids sporting events!

Connor and Mason are in their regular Thursday morning swimming, and playing baseball Mondays and Wednesdays. Blake is playing Lacrosse, and Emerson and Reese will be playing recreational soccer again. There are often time conflicts and we feel bad that we either can't be at everything or that we sometimes want to stay home, but I think we do pretty good seeing something often.

The month flew by as it always does.

In  my February post I told you about all the birthdays that month. May has two birthdays for us - Lindsay and Blake.

Blake is now 11 years old!! Who can believe that? He is a great boy, loves his sports so much, never wants to be at home if he can be playing something somewhere!  He thought when we left that he might be as tall as me when we got home and he is right. However I reminded him that 5' should not be his goal.  LOL Happy Birthday Blake -we love you so very much!

And Lindsay - happy birthday to our baby! Who can believe the years have gone by so fast and you have accomplished so much?

There is no doubt one of my most favorite times of the year is the annual May Long Weekend camping trip, always with the girls and their families, and always with some additional friends. This year we missed Paul and Mary and Brad and Julie; but welcomed Phil and Ciara and Kristi and Donnie!

We did all the usual things we do were wore out by the end! I might mention a lot of Friday was spent finding and replacing the steering cable in the boat! But then we had baseball games, appetizer night, sharing fires and beverages, boating, biking, fishing and laughter and most importantly family and friendship! Thankfully Phil captured some photos of the weekend and I am sharing those!

May is also a special month as Don and I celebrate our anniversary. Happy 38 years to us!

I'll talk to you after June is over ad let you know how we are doing:)
