Home Again

We are home again..........bet you did not even know I was gone....... We were on VACATION........ We left here Wednesday morning headed for the Ozarks. Craft fairs and quiet time. Sorry to say but the weather turned terrible and we did not get to sit outside or build a fire. We sat in the camper most of the time but did get out to the Fair on Friday. Bella Vista.. Love it.. The weather was wonderful and we strolled around for hours.. I am so glad that Dennis loves the same things as I do.




This is our camper, I had forgotten to take pictures before we put the awning up. It is 26 foot with slid out and we just love it. We have had it three years but never had the time to take it out. We were hoping for better weather but one can never plan on that.




This is the view outside the campsite. Beaver Lake near Rogers Arkansas. It was just beautiful. The trees were turning and the the view around the lake was like a painted pallet. This picture does not do it justice.


This is the entrance to the Bella Vista Craft Fair. It was a beautiful day for strolling around the grounds. I had hopes of being a participant this year with my primitives but that did not work out for me but maybe next year.




I took a picture of this at one of the booths.. I so loved it and I want Dennis to make one for next year to hang around the pool. Just change the word to pool instead of Lake. What ya think?


We closed up the camper on Saturday morning and headed to Springfield Mo to celebrate our 10th anniversary and visit with his brother and his family. We have not seen them in two years. We spent the night in Springfield Saturday and headed back to the camp site on Sunday night.
With the weather being so yucky we decided to pull up stakes and head home on Monday, do some laundry and head out again on Tuesday morning for Texas.

We love the little town of McKinney Texas, it has a quaint little town square with lots of vintage shops and outdoor cafe's'. But alas, Tuesday morning around 2 AM Dennis woke up very very sick and we paced the floor for hours when around 8 in the morning I became so sick also. Stomach flu with diarrhea and vomiting. High fever and body aches.. Mercy!!! 36 hours later we are better but it is now Wednesday and vacation is over come Thursday morning. That was not fun.

Well I think I have more pictures to share but I still feel pretty bad and need to go and lay down awhile. I will be back in the blog full time now. I have missed everyone and want to get back visiting my favorite ladies...

  4. I'm so HAPPY your home! I missed you! Sorry to hear that you got sick on vacation of all things! ICK, My nephew has been real sick with the same stuff, but my sister in law couldn't break his fevers, so all of us prayed and by mid morning no fever and he was wanting a In-N-out burger, and my sister in law said he's feeling fine, he was listening to his christian music REAL LOUD, I told her he's rejoicing, let him be =)

    Hugs~
