Hope you all had a Happy Thanksgiving!🦃

Thank you Toni and Eric for having us for Thanksgiving.  Our "feast" was outstanding!  We talked or zoomed with our other two sons, Chris and Josh and Josh's family, in the afternoon.  Later we all were able to zoom with Pat's Mom and his family.  We are so thankful for friends and family!!❤  I was stuffed and ready for bed early.

Week 2

All 3 of us were excited for Clara's sleepover.  Clara, "I'm tired.  I think I yawned.  I'm going to bed.  You can go to bed too."

Week 2 in Houston involved a trip to the park, France Day, baseball (including 2 tournament games), and just time spent together!

"The shitter's full!"--National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation

I believe Cousin Eddie was actually dumping into the storm sewer, however, we were not!

One of our favorite movies is National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation.  We watch it EVERY Christmas season!  If you have seen it you'll recognize the above scene.  Our youngest son, Chris, deserves thanks for the surprise "Cousin Eddie hat."  It could not have arrived at a more perfect time either.  We certainly had fun with it!

Back in 2015 Emma and Alexa sluicing, or at least having fun playing in the muddy water at the wash station at Crater of Diamonds State Park.

Crater of Diamond's State Park is near Murfreesboro, AR.  It is a fun place to go and, I would imagine, more fun if you found a diamond!  We were here with our boys when they were little,  Eric's family and his in-laws in 2015, and now with Krikkit.  We arrived Sun. afternoon and, after paying $10 each, went in search of our fortune Monday afternoon.  We were not successful today, but maybe tomorrow???

Go west young man

Pat and his helper washing our diamonds Monday at Crater of Diamonds State Park, AR.  Story and more pictures tomorrow when we have internet!

We did reach warmer weather in West Memphis, AR on Saturday, although tomorrow night will be colder here.  Temperatures were in the 60's and the low tonight will only get down to 44°.  Last year we stayed in West Memphis at a casino on our way south.  This RV park is  right on the Mississippi. It is very peaceful and has a beautiful view. Krikkit and I sat along the shore this afternoon and watched a barge go by.  It was nice to have hook-ups.  Most of my day was spent doing laundry. Tomorrow we turn west.
