We got to feeling brave, so drove the motorhome over to my cousin John's house in Brighton, CO. John and Sangwan have a large front yard and driveway, so Richard backed our house right in front of John's. I was so proud of him. He can put that big coach almost anywhere!

Back to John's driveway we went, thinking we would need to take the pets to a kennel somewhere. Sangwan has never had pets in her sparkling clean home, and we would not consider asking her to accommodate our housebroken, but slobbery old dog. Well, we didn't have to ask because she offered! Baby Snooks stayed inside until evening when we all went over to John and Sangwan's daughter's house for dinner. Everyone there was so amazed when they heard Snookie had spent the afternoon in the Snider house!

We got set up in no time and headed to Crystal and Ronnie's house where Ronnie and some of the kids prepared a luscious dinner which was topped off with lots of good conversation. We had some catching up to do and some pictures to review since three of our granddaughters graduated from High School this spring... Mazel Tov, Kaylah, Becka and Rachel!!!

After services, Richard and I drove the car to Castle Rock to visit daughter Kim and her family. The youngest, Peyton, had a birthday party to attend, so Daddy Steve took her. She was pooped out by the time she got back.
While she was gone, Kim put steaks on the grill and whipped up scalloped potatoes, corn and a super moist and chocolaty bundt cake with a buttery rich vanilla icing.

It's so, so good to see our loved ones again and to have the freedom to hang around for a while. We have the greatest kin folk in the world. We're so blessed to have wonderful children and beautiful, happy grandchildren... and the ability to drive all over the country to visit them, and never leave our home!

We do need to get Baby Snooks a bath and nail trim tomorrow, though. Hmmmm
