At about 4 o'clock yesterday afternoon an enormous RV rolled it's way into our quiet neighborhood, complete with an ice-house-turned-dog-house hitched behind it.
Ryan and I were rocking in chairs on the front porch, Hazel was napping upstairs and Oliver was playing Balaam's Donkey in the front yard with a stick ("Balaam, why are you beating me?" Goofy kid.)
When the enormous beast of a vehicle came to a stop it slowly began to release it's inhabitants, one by one. First Papa bear and baby bear. Then a few brother bears, a sister bear, and finally, a Mama Bear with puppy in tow. All looking incredibly sunned and tired and (and I don't think she'll mind me saying this!) all in need of baths! :)
We had the very fun pleasure this weekend of hosting my friend Jennifer (MckMama as she's known in the blogging world) and her family as they are touring around the Midwest and South for the months of March and April in a very fun, very large RV. We offered them hot baths, laundry, supper and lots of room to play and run with Oliver in the backyard. What a lovely time!
