Hi there everyone,
Well, it has been a while since I updated the blog. We've been very busy and most weekend mornings, when I normally update the blog, I've been busy working on my Windows Phone application that will be intended for RVers, but more on that at a later date.
Our Thanksgiving weekend is rapidly coming to a close, but it has been a wonderful one. We had an opportunity to get together with a large number of our family members.
On Wednesday night, Mike and Karen arrived to the Elks lodge in Rancho Cordova to set up their RV for the weekend. They were at Marq's earlier in the week to celebrate marks 37th Birthday, the thought of that really makes me feel old! :-) After Carol and I got home from work, we had Mike and Karen over for dinner at our place where we enjoyed some tasty Skinny Tortilla soup that Carol makes, YUM!
On Thursday afternoon, we all headed over to Brandee and Kevins for Thanksgiving dinner. They, with the help of their daughter Danielle, Sandy and Bill put on a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner. Carols Brother Calvin and his wife Joyce were able to join us as well which is always great. One of the fun events of the evening, was Kevins desire to change out the toilet in the middle of the preparations for dinner. Kevin enlisted the help of his brother Paul to undertake this task. They had it changed out in no time! It was great to have Paul home for the holiday season. Paul is returning to Afghanistan to wrap up his deployment with the troops in the next couple months. The food and company of this evening was absolutely wonderful!
On Friday, Mike, Karen, Carol and Eric tripped around Sacramento. We took the dogs to the dog park and we had lunch at a local Brew pub and then had dinner at Karen and Mikes place.
Saturday, Carol and I hooked up with Billy, Loretta to see them and their son Brandon at their house in Pioneer. It was so wonderful to see them this holiday season.
We considered going out on Black Friday and doing some Christmas shopping with the throngs, but our intestinal fortitude as well as our check book, being that we only get paid once a month now, are lacking. So, we opted to sleep in.
Sunday, we went to the tree lighting ceremony for Rancho Cordova where we think almost the entire populous of Rancho Cordova could be found. There were a lot of people there for this fun community event that had vendors and activities for everyone.
Happy Thanksgiving! Eric and Carol
