Thanks, I needed that.

First a small update on the Dr. Dobbs appointment. Matthew has an appointment March 30 at 8:30 am. The Shriner's travel agent is going to call me back later today with flight and accommodation details. Shriner's is covering both of our flights as well as accommodation and meals.

I am so thankful.

Winter Camping update.

Our first foray into winter camping was a HUGE success. First of all, we had fantastic weather. Sunny, clear blue skies, not a breath of wind and this was the view. At night it was about -10 C (14 F) and during the day was 6 C (43 F). Our trailer was toasty warm, in fact I was warmer then when we had the tent trailer out in the summer.

A weekend away was just what I needed. It was a quiet, relaxing weekend filled with fresh air and exercise. No one wanted to leave Sunday afternoon. In fact, the boys were desperately trying to talk us into just one more night. Guess we will have to get out again soon before Matthew gets casted. Who can resist this much fun?

That is wonderful news Joanne. Boy do the Shriners move quick.

Your winter camping trip looks wonderful. Almost makes me want to go out in our trailer as well. Almost lol

Looks like you had great fun - I loved the pictures. Thanks for sharing. My hubby has always wanted to take us winter camping but we haven't gone - perhaps someday.
