St. Louis with Our Family There

JoAnne Morgan

As many of you know, our "St. Louis kids and grandkids" had a tragic and total loss of their home in Sunset Hills, MO due to an electrical fire the evening of March 4th. We were anxious to visit them, confirm they are indeed okay, and to see the progress on the "rebuilding" of their house, which from all indications will be completed in 6 to 8 months.

Normally when we visit them, we parked T2 in front of their home. Now of course it was all different...no house to park in front of and with a much larger RV to find a place to park.

We decided on Babler State Park, in Wildwood, MO about 17 miles from their location. What a great State Park. We will definitely use this park again. That way we could drive in to see them, and they would be able to come out and visit with us. And that is what happened! In fact while just "hanging out" with us for a weekend, they said they were so grateful to "have a break" from all of the activities of the house fire, and just relax in the country.
I really enjoyed hanging out with them, but had such a blast with the kids! Making S'mores, watching baseball practice, listening to a school report, going out to dinner, celebrating birthday's, having our kids shopping spree, plus having chalk drawings done on our patio. We enjoyed some fun picnic dinners, and lots treasured lots of laughter!

How blessed we all are!   SEE PHOTOS HERE
