Take me out to the ballgame

Labor day weekend was the wrap up of the season for the Round Rock Express. We didnt make it to as many games this year as we normally do, we just had lots of other fun stuff going on and didnt have as much time. We still love our Express!!

Here's the kiddos at the last game of the season that we went to. We celebrated with funnel cake!

New to us RV!

Our trusty old motorhome that we got about 5 years ago finally bit the dust when the insurance company decided to total it due to interior water damage and exterior hail damage. We used that as an excuse to upgrade to a slightly larger and newer motorhome. We were looking for a specific layout with a bedroom in the back with enough beds for all the kids and it's not a very common layout. We wanted to find one used and not spend three times the amount on new one. We found one but it was located in Florida. On Labor Day weekend Mike was heading home from a business trip friday so instead of flying home he flew to meet the owner in Florida. He checked it out and bought it saturday morning and started the long trek home. He got home sunday afternoon with our new RV! It's a 29foot Fleetwood bunkhouse model Class C motorhome. It's much newer and nicer and fits our family a little better than our old one that we bought when we only had two kids.

Camping

Sept 20 I had a triathlon out at Inks Lake State Park. What better excuse did we have to break in the new RV! I had reserved a spot months ago for the night before my tri so that we could just stay at the park and I could get up and race in the morning. We ended up getting a spot that was just a few hundred yards from the transition and race start/finish so it was very convenient for me to get set up and for the family to get up and come cheer me on! It was also right on the water so the girls could swim and I could watch them from the campsite. We had a great time camping at the lake. The kids didnt want to leave on sunday, I literally had to pull Tracy and Loren out of the lake at checkout time after we were all packed up and about to drive away. Good thing they could change in the motorhome!
