Well, that "long while, and hard work" has finally paid off, and this past week my son's dream finally came true! We arrived just in time to help him and his young family move into his wonderful new (to them) lake home! This lovely home sits right beside Lake Lavon in Princeton Texas with their back yard going right down to the water's edge.
Each evening we all sit outside on their patio and just take in that beautiful view, smiling at how wonderful it is and talking about all the plans they already have. An added bonus (for us) is that he has enough land around the house that we can park our RV on the property too!
Each morning and evening we are serenaded by the frogs and birds. Country nature at it's best! Its truly wonderful here.

Living the "RV lifestyle" certainly helps with "commuting" from west coast, central, and east coast just to see my three kids!
We couldn't leave Texas without one last "tornado watch!" So, just a couple of days before we were to leave, sure enough, true to form, the weather folks told us to "button down and get ourselves ready, because it was coming our way!" So, we did. Pulled in the sides and moved the rig close into the house, and waited. And waited. Well, 'round about 9 O'clock the lightening and thunder started and then came the rain. Well, that lasted on and off until about 4 am and then that was it! Some wind, but not much. Fine by me!
Next day, the sun came out as if there had never been a storm! Gotta love Texas!
We've had a nice long visit here. Helped some. Enjoyed seeing my kid's dream come true, seeing my littlest grandson getting bigger, celebrated a couple of birthdays, and seen some new areas around Dallas we haven't seen before, so it must be time to leave.
As we leave them to get settled in (which we know will take "forever") we will finally leave this great state of Texas for now and head "our sweet home" to a new state for us, one we've not ventured into before...Arkansas! I'm excited!
