Holiday RVing

I gave tribute and honor on Memorial Day to all those who served our country for our freedom. 

We celebrate with red, white, and blue for the USA and as the beginning of summer. And includes outside food and some form of water. 

We made it a RV trip with all the holiday trimmings. 

Red, White and Blue
The flag flying high. And on the table cloth.  We said the Pledge Allegiance several times, hoping to instill the tradition in the kids.

Red, white and blue festive head bands to wear while watching the parade go by. 

Even the pets were in sync.

The food 
We needed food for three days of RVing with eleven people coming and going. Each couple was assigned a meal to plan and prepare. Food included: 

🍔 the must have dogs and burgers and condiments. 

🍲 jambalaya with beans and salad 

🎏 fish dinner freshly cooked 

🍳 eggs, pancakes and bacon for breakfast each day

🍪 And everything in between. 

Water Fun
There was pool play and splash pad fun. And a giant water slid that we were too little to really want to participate in. 

There was beach balls and bubble blowing, s'mores and bike riding, and a parade.

Baby Blue

A grandbaby boy of a friend of my sister is expected soon. So here's a little welcome for the little one that I was asked to make. 

A baby blue blanket and booties to snuggle him in. Congratulations and best wishes to the family.

The Birthday

The Minnie Mouse birthday girl turned two. She was one happy little girl. 

She wore her Minnie Mouse outfit I made for her. 

She blew out her own candle. 

The adults enjoyed her cake, ice cream, and Minnie Mouse cutout decorated cookies. And there was jambalaya, pastalaya, beans, and rolls. 

She had plenty of help opening her gifts. 

Happy Birthday Baby Girl!

New to me

My trusty ride, sidekick, home on wheels, dining on the go,  etc. for 13 years has been replaced. His name is Brad. (Haven't you seen the car insurance commercial?) With 299k miles it was time, especially since things haven't been going so well with him with his old age,  aches,  and pains. 

So I went from that to this. 

I've christened her Felicity. We're on the road again. I'm treating her with kid gloves for now. But I'm sure that won't last very long.

It's A Minnie Mouse Thing

A Minnie Mouse birthday outfit is being created for a 2 year old. 

I've had the most re-cuts, rip-outs and seam-redo's on this than I've had in a long, long time. I'm holding my breath that it is successful. I need it in 3 days. 

With a little sparkle. A lot of bows. Ruffles everywhere. It should be a hit and blend in with all the Minnie bday banners, cake, and props. 

It's gonna be a Minnie Mouse Birthday Party.

Round and round we go. 

A little one had a severe ear infection. His mom sick, too, she thought she must have the flu. I'm called to the rescue to HELP. 
  * help keep him home from daycare
  * help take him to doctor 
  * help give mom down time to
      recuperate from her illness 

It's all in my job description. A job I'm happy and blessed to have.  My "mawmaw hero powers" gets everyone well and back to normal and I'm on my way to my next "mawmaw hero" assignment.
