Family Reunion in Nebraska

On the way from Kansas City to North Platte, NE we were able to stop in Wichita, KS. We spent the night in the Cracker Barrel parking lot and had breakfast the next morning with some dear friends we hadn't seen in a while.

The time in Nebraska was wonderful. We had three days with Marcia's extended family - grandma, aunts, uncles, cousins, etc.  There were 48 of us all hanging out in the lawn at grandma's house.  There was a campground at the end of her street where many of us were able to stay so we could walk back and forth. It was so nice.  After everyone else went home, we were able to stay a few extra days while Jeff worked, and I got to visit with Grandma. I will treasure that time forever.

Now we head north and east - slowly working our way towards New York.

Kansas City visit

We were able to spend three weeks in Kansas City visiting friends (most of whom I forgot to get pictures with - sorry!), and Jeff was able to spend some time working in the office and setting things up for his next remote project.

Our spot at the Peculiar Park Place RV park was much nicer than we thought it would be. It looks like a big parking lot from the highway, but the back part of the park is shaded and very nice.

Great food at some of our favorite restaurants as well as trying some new ones was on our list while in town.  We had never been to the original Joe's KC in the gas station in Kansas City, KS.  It was worth the hour-plus wait!  Delicious!  We also got to try out the donuts at Donutology. Very fun place.

Lots of fun times with friends - Little Mermaid at Starlight, S'more night, game nights, and so much more.

It was great to be able to catch up with so many different people during our quick visit, but we are ready to be on the road again.

Oklahoma - Visiting family

After our trip back to Arkansas in a rental car, we spent a day in Tulsa before heading out separately. This time Jeff flew to New York to spend a week with his mom and was able to surprise her for Mother's Day.  Marcia rode with her parents to Nebraska to visit her grandmother in North Platte.

Once we all arrived back in Tulsa, we spent a couple of weeks helping Marcia's parents clean their garage and have a huge garage sale. It was a lot of work but very worth it!

While in Tulsa we had to eat at some of the favorite local places...  Oklahoma Joe's, Braum's, Goldie's, and others we forgot to take photos of.

Next up - Kansas City!
