Surprises All Around

I've mentioned before that JD stays at our trailer during his work week. Our travel trailer is parked out at the lake in Mayberry (the town he works in).

This past week was especially long. He worked his normal days. Then he had four days of training in another town that's still closer to Mayberry than our town so he stayed out there those days too. And now he's back on shift again.

It's Fall Break here. The boys were out of school Thursday and Friday. We decided to surprise Daddy with a little impromptu camping trip.

We drove out to the trailer Thursday evening. We arrived just before he got "home" from training. He was surprised (and pleased) to find us there waiting for him.

It was a chilly evening so I made us all some soup and Cindy's yummy Red Lobster Biscuits. (This is the 3rd time we've made those since she first posted the recipe. If you haven't tried them yet, you GOTTA do it! They're out of this world!)

That evening, as we sat up on the hill overlooking the lake, watching the sun set, we got a little surprise of our own.

Oh my gosh...those guys in that parachute thing are brave! I'm glad you liked the biscuits...they are so good! Mmmm I can almost taste them!
