We've had a busy two weeks.  After we left Cedar Point, we headed back to Korkie's Campground for a few days before we took off again (minus the RV!) to visit Dan's family and attend his niece's wedding in PA.

We met up with some good friends (Linda, Steve, Paulie and Kork) for dinner at Shane's Rib Shack in Raleigh and shared a good meal and great laughs.  It ended all too quickly!

We were also able to have a Mexican Fiesta with son Brandon, DIL Amanda and Kork. Chicken tacos, my sister Barbara's famous bean dip, homemade pico and guacamole were on the menu..  Oh yeah - we had a few adult beverages too. 

Crazy guys!  Note the leftover pink napkin (from my Mom's birthday party) that Dan is wearing.

Fun times!
After dinner, we played a game, laughed as Amanda punched the punching bag, and had a fireball eating contest!

One, two, PUNCH!!

I'll bite your ear off!!

So many laughs!!

Here we go with the fireballs!!

Look Ma - can you beat me? 

Glad I had a drink close by!  Those things are H-O-T!!

We left the RV at Kork's and headed up to PA the Sunday before Thanksgiving.  We were only going to be there a week (5 days at Dan's Mom's farm and 2 days at the wedding) so felt it was best not to take the RV that distance for such a short time. It also gave us the opportunity to stay at the hotel where the wedding was to take place and gave us extra time with Dan's family.

Dan's Mom had 15 people for Thanksgiving dinner and boy, did she prepare a spread.  I was her "sous chef" that day and was glad to help.  No pictures of the food but suffice it to say, our bellies were full.

Friday we headed to Williamsport, PA for the wedding of Sarah and Dave.  It was a gorgeous wedding, the food (and cake) were yummy and the DJ kept the party hopping.

We said our goodbyes to everyone on Sunday and said "see you in the summer".  The drive back to Korkie's Campground was a l-o-n-g one and it was good to get back home.  We are heading south this week and will meet up with Gin and Syl, Bill and Nancy, Bruce and Laura and will also get to see two of my sisters (and hopefully my BIL Bruce)!  Can't wait!!

Wow! You have been busy! My mouth watered at the sound of your Mexican feast :) I've been trying to be good and eat healthy, but I really need a Mexican fix once in awhile. Love Dan's pink "bib" :)

You guys will have so much fun with the gang. Wish we were going to be there too! Enjoy!

Looks like you both had a wonderful Thanksgiving and trip up north. We decided to wait an extra day and drive home on Monday. Sooooo glad we did because there was NO traffic. Miss you lots!
