We are the Gilmore's, Bob and Jacki. We retired in May of 2010 and in July of the same year bought a 40' Phaeton, motorhome and hit the road. Pralines our Sheltie travels with us. Our son Scot lives in Fort Worth, TX. Our daughter and family live in Dallas, TX. We are Winter Texans, staying in Mission, TX. Dec. through March.
We left our house on Tuesday, evening May 25th. We drove as far as Santa Clarita, where we spent the night at LaQuinta, so that we were out of the house and ready to head out early the next morning. If you are wondering, we have not purchased our motorhome yet, but put all our earthly belongings in storage and some in our CRV and headed on our way. Our first stop was my moms in Tucson, Arizona. We had planned to stay a few days but Heather's contractions were coming stronger and we didn't want to miss Asher's birth.
We made it to Dallas on Sunday, May 30th. Heather was having hard contractions but about the time we arrived they stopped. Of course! So we just enjoyed visiting with Addie. Aunt Shellie bought Addie a Mr. Potato Head
California Adventure and Addie loved him. He has Cinderella hair and shoes and can be made into a princess or Minnie Mouse in an instant.
