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 - In Like A Lion

Now I know this typically refers to the weather, but I felt it was our life! After spending 10 weeks by ourselves, or in the company of other like minded retired relaxed adults, coming home to all the activity and volunteer work is a bit overwhelming. I have a lot of work to get out of the way, for which I am thankful as I enjoy it, but we also had a lot of catching up to do with family and friends.

For some time we have been wanting to update the kids piling on grandpa photo for our photo wall, and finally had the opportunity. The second one is the last time.


 
 
 
May has two birthdays in our family - Blake and Lindsay. We fit in a family dinner at Red Robin for Blake's, and for Lindsay's Jeremy treated us to a delicious fish and chips dinner with his own fish! Mmm



Before we knew it, Mother's Day was here. Don's mom came form Tisdale to visit! She was actually here in time to come to Lindsay's birthday dinner.

We kept her busy for a week with dinners with the family, trips to watch Lacrosse and swimming and a bit of shopping. Then we packed the trailer rand headed to the Stecyk cabin for the weekend. This was the first weekend since Blake was born that we weren't taking a family and extended friends trips to a campground. The Camerons were in Red Deer for a Lacrosse tournament, the Scotts were at their lake lot, and I can't even remember what the others were up to! So it was us and the Paskos at the Stecyks.

We had a wonderful weekend, and were so pleased with how much Mom enjoyed camping, quadding and side by side riding! We missed getting photos of that for some reason, but this one at least tells you how exhausting the whole thing was.


The next step of mom's visit was a trip to Penticton. What a beautiful break it was! Since coming back to Canada the weather was horrid and we needed some warmth and sunshine. I don't think everyone in Penticton would have described the weather that way, as it was seasonally cold, but we appreciated no snow.

While mom visited with her brother Frank and his wife Gwen, Don and I took the opportunity for a couple of wine tours, a visit with life long friends Keith and Marcia and family in Falkland and Roberta and Ken West Kelowna. There is nothing like the friends you rarely see where your conversation starts form the last time you visited and you just don't want to leave!


Mom returned home after a busy two weeks, and May finished for us. I'm not sure what is up in June but I will let you know after it's over!
