Fort Stewart, Georgia March 5th and 6th

We have been in the Charleston South Carolina area for 6 months and really did not do anything exciting most of the time so I got out of the habit of doing our blog.  We are now on the road so I will try my hardest to keep it up to date.

Our time in Charleston was great as we got to spend alot of time with our daughter, son-in-law and our 3 beautiful granddaughters.  We also flew to California to spend time with our daughter, son-in-law, our grandson and our granddaughter.  Being a grandparent is one of the greatest gifts God has bestowed upon us.  I loved being a mom but I adore being a grandmom.

Wednesday March 3rd we spent at Susan’s (our daughter) house.  We enjoyed talking and playing with the girls and then had a nice dinner with them.  It was hard saying goodbye but we will be back again in he near future.  We have watched with amazement how they interreact with each other and the dynamics of having 3 girls.  No wonder my mom was such a special lady putting up with her 3 daughters.  Yikes what a job.

On Thursday we did laundry, bought wine, packed up, said goodbye to some friends plus had a wonderful dinner with Darci and Calvin.  Thanks Darci for a wonderful steak dinner. 

Friday morning we were up early – something about traveling wakes us both up at the crack of dawn.  We packed up slowly as it was quite cold outside but were still on the road by 9 am.  We took Route 17 south to I-95 until we saw the signs for Fort Stewart.  What a huge base – it is the largest military base on the east coast with over 280,000 acres.  It is a very active base and they have a beautiful campground surrounded by trees.  The sites are spaced far apart with water and electric.  They have a nice bathhouse, laundry, room to have parties and beautiful grounds.  We arrived at 1pm  and after setting up took a ride to the exchange.  I needed to buy a new pair of sunglasses plus we needed a few items for dinner.  Saturday we were up early again and I did 70 minutes of my WII fit plus exercises.  I love this new game as it goes from one thing to another automatically – what a good workout I had.  While I was doing that Tim cooked eggs and made deviled eggs.  Tonight we attended a pot luck dinner with about  10 other couples.  We had such a nice variety of food and desert and everything was delicious.  After dinner we all sat around the fire and talked and laughed – real nice bunch of people.

Tommorow morning we are headed to Valdosta, Georgia.  New area for us both so we will have fun exploring.  Will write again soon.
