We got up early on Friday morning and loaded up the RV and headed to Mesquite, Nevada. We arrived around 6:00 and called up our long time friends, Shaun and Linda who live here now. We haven’t seen them in quite some time and we always enjoy each other’s company. It will be the first stop before we head to Dinosauer Monument National Park. We had a fun filled evening meeting their two adorable dogs, Max and Maggy and went out to dinner at the casino at 8:30 pm. That is usually my bedtime, but with Shaun and Linda, it is alway way too much fun and worth the effort! Earlier that day we drove over a railroad crossing off of the 40, hit the tracks too hard and have a shimmy in the back that needs to be looked at. We are going over to have it checked out this morning. One tiny little glitch in our plans that will have to be addressed. Note to self- the RV cannot handle bumps in the road. It is hard on the cabinets too! *

Callie had a fun time resting on my lap and looking out the window periodically throughout the day. She loves traveling in the RV. When we pulled up to the check in line at the Casa Blanca Resort, she stood up in the seat and was astonished at the beautiful water feature in front of the casino. It reminded me of the time when we took our young daughter Lara to Las Vegas to the Lux Casino and it looked like a castle to her. She glanced up at us with a blissed out look on her face and exclaimed “Is this a real castle Daddy?” Callie looked like she thought the same thing….. is this a real waterfall? What a joy it was to raise our daughter and to now have a cat that loves to travel with us after our daughter has flown the nest. Callie has been a great substitute and takes her job seriously. We can watch with pleasure our daughter growing up and becoming independent, and Callie will fill in the void so that we don’t miss her too much! Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers out there…
