Onward to Iowa

We left John’s cousin Nancy’s place in Richardson, TX on Saturday, April 20th at about 9:30 and reached Big Cabin, OK around 4:00 p.m.  We stayed at our usual spot at Cabin Diesel RV Park.  We were last here in late November of 2007 when we had the motorhome muffler replaced.  Quiet here….as usual…

On Sunday, the 21st, we moseyed on up to Springfield, MO and parked in front of Steve & Mary’s house for a couple of nights.  Steve was gone on a canoeing trip when we arrived, so Mary, John & I entertained ourselves playing with the Wii Fit Plus.  Of course, we all laughed so hard doing it, that John & I just had to go out to Walmart the next day and get our own!  Steve & Mary have done a fab job with their garden/yard, so I had a fun time taking pictures.  We had a nice time visiting, as we always do.  Thanks again for the fantastic meals, too!


Almost to Iowa!  On Tuesday, April 23rd, we left Springfield a bit before 9:00 and pulled into Walnut Woods State Park at a little before 4:00.  We haven’t stayed here before but liked it a lot. We had a lovely dinner with our friend, Max, in downtown Des Moines before he headed back to the office.

The next morning, April 24, we drove over to Jim & Darlene’s house for coffee.  Jim & Dar were good family friends from the Eldora church that my family attended and we had enjoyed seeing them when they visited in Alaska years ago.  Glad we were able to touch base with them again as they are preparing to move out east.  Then back to the state park to hitch up the car and head for the farm.  We arrived there at 3:00 and settled in for a month or so.
