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:)

2nd Half of Summer

 I've tried to stay away from COVID talk, but who would have thought we would still be in the midst of a pandemic in August?

We were lucky that August gave us opportunities to be with friends and family. As I said in my last post we headed to Jim and Janice's farm in Glendon for a visit. We had a relaxing time, the weather was hot, and we got to see their new fifth wheel trailer. We made sure the fridge and air conditioning worked and had a great visit!

When we came home the final touches were done on the house and garage, we did a walk through and identified a few minor areas which were fixed on the spot, and the whole story ends with a freshened look of our house and garage. These projects gave us a focus over the summer and we are pleased with how our humble home looks now. We added finishing touches with a new mail box, outdoor lights and numbers.

After all that work and stress we escaped for the day to our favorite mountain get a way - Jasper. It was a great day as always, and the drive is never a bother.

If there is one thing COVID has taught us it is to appreciate all the time we typically get with our grandkids. We finally had a chance to have them for a sleep over! Everyone was a great sport about picking beds, etc. We had a blast and fit in a visit to the Edmonton Corn Maze. It was such a hot day, we finished it off with ice cream at Beach Corner.

The rest of the visit was spent watching movies in the cool basement, and some great food!

We enjoyed our last Alberta camping trip of the year at Moose Lake, with Paul and Mary. We haven't had a camping trip together for a year or two since they now have a lake lot. But they pulled their other trailer out for the weekend and it was sure appreciated.

The fish didn't cooperate this trip, but you can see the boating conditions were supreme.

We are approaching our September trip, so I will update you soon.
