The main street as you drive in - -

This is the Riverside Casino. We spent our first night in the parking lot because our reservation at the Ridgeview RV Park wasn't until Saturday.

We spent a couple of days in Kelowna at Holidy Park RV Resort. We had a little problem with our fridge in the motorhome and had to get it fixed before we head south for the winter.

We spent some time with Michel's son Richard and his family.

Here is Richard showing Khayden the gears, etc on the bike and below Khayden is riding a motorbike for the first time.

Today we had a short and very sweet visit from Michel's nephew Jeremy Nixon and his wife Anita and two lovely children Patrick and Eden.

They live in Calgary and were on their way home. It was a very nice surprise.

September 29 - October 5, 2009

We spent one day short of a week in Grimshaw, AB. with my kids and grandkids and had a wonderful visit.

pictured above is 'grandma' sharing fries with her granddaughter - - to the right, Melody, who turned 2 on September 18th - Isn't she a cutie?? We had a great day shopping and just spending time with her. She enjoyed the dogs at Tammy & Rob's house.

pictured left is Michel and Tristan (my grandson) - sharing a bag of chips and a controller. They were playing XBox or something like that.
and below is my grandson Tristan, daughter Tammy, her boyfriend Rob - and of course there sits Michel and myself. You can see the huge plates of food in front of us. We sure do eat well!!!

thingee before the kids arrived at her birthday party.

It was sad to leave them - seeing them once a year isn't enough. I made them promise that they'd come to Greenwood next summer and spend some time with us here....

We drove as far as Clearwater on Monday, Oct 5th (10 hours) and stayed at a B&B there, then continued on to Kelowna on Tuesday. We stayed with Michel's parents for the night, did a little grocery shopping in the morning then headed home. It doesn't matter where you go or how long you are gone - it's always good to get home!!!

Next we'll be loading up the motorhome for our trip south.....
