Well so far this summer we've been going in circles. As you've seen our travels have pretty much taken us to our daughter's home in Indiana(we stayed at either the local KOA or the Elkhart Campground each visit), our daughter's home in Streamwood(we stayed at the Sycamore RV park) and Bloomington/Normal, IL visiting my Dad and brother(we stayed at either Comlara County Park or Kamp Komfort RV Park). We've made at least 3 trips to Indian, 1 trip to Sycamore and 3 or more trips back to Bloomington/Normal. We did take a side trip to Geneseo, IL to ride our bikes on the Hennepin Canal trail and the Great River Trail by the Quad Cities. However most of traveling has been in circles to the above mentioned places. Since returning from Indiana to Bloomington/ Normal we have been at Comlara County Park with electric and water. Much quieter than Kamp Komfort and more space. The week days are pretty quiet in the campground and of course more busy on the weekends. The weather has been hot and humid lately with some threats of rain. My brother has been out of town this week so I needed to be around to help Dad with a CT scan appt and doing some grocery shopping for him. We were able to snag site #6 in the pull through area up front.
I've enjoyed helping Dad with his appt and I even tutored Dad on a tablet he got in preparation for him buying a smartphone in Sept. He does pretty good but doesn't have a great concept of how it works. A work in progress. We got some errands done while here and got some exercise. I've gotten very lazy recently so I'm trying to do better. Bike riding and walking the campground each day or both. Tomorrow we are heading to Elgin, IL and the Paul Wolff Campground at Burnidge Forest Preserve near our daughter, Heather and grandson Aiden. Looking forward to spending some time with Heather, her husband Paul and Aiden. We'll be in the area for abut 10 days. Of course they will be working and Aiden will be at Day Care but we get to see them in the evenings and next weekend. It'll be nice to have some new scenery. Then of course we'll be back in Bloomington/Normal for a few days an then head to our favorite campground in IL......Forrest "Bo" Wood COE near Sullivan, IL. They have some ne FHU sites and we snagged a nice one. Photos later. After some R&R there we'll be back in Bloomington/Normal. See I told you we're making circles.One reason we have to come back to B/N is for Glenda to have some gum surgery. Then we have to stick around a couple of weeks for follow up appts.
On August 28 we head back to Indiana to say our goodbyes to our daughter Sommer and her husband Todd and the grandkids there and then we move over to Elgin again Sept 2 to say our goodbyes to Heather, Paul and Aiden and then back to B/N on Sept 8 to say our goodbyes to Dad and my brother before we head for AZ on Sept 14.
We originally thought we would be making some trips to WI or MI this summer but family duty calls and we won't be coming back this way until June next year to see our granddaughter, Jasmyne graduate from high school. So it'll be quite a long time before our return. So I guess you could say our summer has been a circle of life, family and friends. That's what it's all about. Plans in Jello.
P.S.... This was our sky last night during our walk around the campground and lake. Makes it all worthwhile.
