So... a nice little class B unit pulled in yesterday, and I'm outside talking to Sharon, the lady who runs our canteen. The couple in the class B park, and start wandering over towards us. He's got a bottle of wine in his hand. "Are you Kevin?" the guy asks.
"We're Bill and Gloria from Idaho, and we've been reading your blog".
We love when this happens. We think it's totally cool. So before long, we've got Ruth and Doug and Nancy (our other current visitors) over saying hello and everybody is getting acquainted. Soon, we've invited our new friends for dinner, and the ladies are organizing the food!
Kevin, Nancy, Doug, Bill, Ruth, Gloria.
So, a great late afternoon and evening we had visiting with everybody.
Bill and Gloria are actually on their way up to Saskatoon to visit the PleasureWays RV factory where they make the class B motorhomes like the one they own.
Really nice little rig they've got. It's a 2009, and the interior still has that "brand new" smell...

Of course we still had some work to do getting the park ready for the weekend. As I've said, we've had a lot of rain and unfortunately some areas of the park are a little muddy. Nothing we can do about that, and some of the areas have already got a little chewed up from people trying to put their rigs in their spot.
One guy made three or four attempts to get in, and still didn't make it. Unfortunately the grass paid the price.
Little yellow bird I spotted.

That was my main job of the afternoon, putting the big dock in the water. Sure helps to have the right equipment to do the job! And a helper....thanks for helping out, Doug!
Today's the day we get busy...should be fun!
Our header picture for today is from our trip to Florida in March of 2010. We went there specifically to see our son Alex and his college baseball team do their spring training games. One of the games was an exhibition game where his team played against the Minnesota Twins Rookie Squad. This team consisted of kids who were in their first year of professional baseball. The closest our son ever got to the major leagues!

We miss watching Alex play baseball!
