Today is day 21 - the time seems to passing quickly.  We will be here until Saturday a.m. and then we are back off on the road.  I think this was just what the doctor ordered.  We can be with other people and out of the coach and into a lot more space.

Today is sunny and bright despite the gloomy forecast of rain early today.  It is now 10:30 our time and the sun is out full and bright.

Claudia has a bunch of bird feeders and I am having fun taking pictures of the birds that come...so far a really pretty Baltimore Oriole, Goldfinch and Red-Wing Blackbirds.

Nick and Dick are busy putting up the railings of the porch that Dick built.  The two of them will then do some minor work on the coach and on Thursday it will go in for some minor service work to get it ready for the Alaska trip.  We want all in perfect working order to start with and what happens from there we have no control of if we are prepared.  So prepared we will be!

Later we are off to the Mall of America!  And, our home here in Bloomington, MN from 1973 until 1978.  Both the kids were born here.

You will see photos of the Mall and of our home - Our First house that we owned.  It had NO trees when we moved in and what you see was planted by us.  Seems bizare to see it now. 

Oh, and I did manage to find a barn or two and a beautiful church!

Went out for great Chinese Food and now home just a chilling.

I think it is a great idea to take a break after about three weeks of solid travel. In fact, I would consider it absolutely essential! Sounds like it will benefit you physically and mentally. And it will benefit the motorhome too! And what a great place for the break, with hometown and friends. Sounds like you are doing everything right on this trip - - - so far.
