The rally was good. Not the big love fest I was hoping for, but good.
The first nght we were there, we walked to the advertised happy hour on the cul-de-sac, but didn’t talk to anyone. Everyone was already standing around in small groups. Kids were running and riding around and through.
I went to an essential oil party at the rally center that was good. I would like to have all the fun oil stuff, able to make my own wrist rollers and cleaners. The women there already had everything it seemed, and had been using these products for years. I only have a couple rollers of lavender to help calm everyone before bed. These people make their own. I left before ordering anything and didn’t get to talk to the mom selling it. It’s probably best. I don’t know where I would keep anything.
Friday at Legoland was great. We all had a lot of fun. We were there from open to close, and had beef going in the crockpot all day for dinner. With the rally, we got a great deal on tickets. We paid $106 for 6 of us. I think it would have been closer to $500 at the gate. The savings pretty much paid for our RV spot and food for the week.
Saturday we did the rally parade of homes and got to see different types of RVs and accessories. Everyone seemed to have shelves and organizers from Ikea. I realized we needed to go to Ikea. There was a valentine exchange in the afternoon for kids.
Saturday was the pizza party and dance. John, with his blue hair, volunteered to help pass out awards and badges. We got a badge for attending our first rally.
The dance that followed was fun. It felt like a wedding. Anne and Jane liked it. We danced together the entire time. Max wanted to go back to the RV, so John went with him. Son John danced a bit with us and met a kid his age. I told him to go have fun, hoping he’d stay out for a bit, get some kid time in with someone outside the family.
Sunday morning I attended discussion groups on using Instant Pots and favorite spots. I talked to a few people there. One family is from Seattle and plans to settle down in Boise soon. Sunday evening I went back to watch Kimberely and Mary Beth do their podcast. Afterward we played a dice game and talked about living in RVs.
The Lazydays RV store had free hot dogs all weekend for its Presidents Day sale. We had some and looked at a few RVs. There were plenty of nice big ones.
We are going to St. Augustine tomorrow for a week. John will be a teenager in 5 days.
