Spring Road Trip to Lake Grapevine - before the summer heat sets in.

Travel, May-2011 finds us in a new mode of transport!  Jim and I have returned to the RVing world.  

In anticipation of longer trips, I decided a local "shakedown" would be a good idea. There is a beautiful area at Lake Grapevine, called Vineyards Campground       
                                         Here are some snapshots of our FUN!  
I actually backed into this campsite,  WITH the help of Miss Peyton!

Doesn't she look like a "pro!"  And then it was off to the playground! 

You can see the rig in the background.

Uncle Dan helped Mr. Cameron at the top of this climb. 
 Uncle Dan and Aunt Candice came for a visit since I was only a few miles from home.
Daddy is supervising this climb!  Tall Cameron became VERY TALL!
Daddy came to pick up the chillens to take them home to sleep.

Our guest at the campsite is not as crazy about Doritos as we are.
Electrifying times on the purple slide!  So cute! And then the slide is FULL!

Pop Pop came to visit too.  He would bring the chillens to Gramma's campsite to play each day.
Lunch time in the motorhome was also an "art lesson."  
What color does red, yellow and white make?

Maybe it depends upon who is mixing the palette.

One afternoon we went for a walk to go see the geese.
You should have heard us squeeeeeel when this goose came at us!!!!

We would rather view the geese from afar. ~grins~
and enjoy more giggles-double sliding!

Quilts - Have-to-Share pics

"A picture is worth a thousand words." is a good, good line.  Add an image of a quilt in the picture and there are many, many more words!

Black and Red - what a combo:

 I am sure you noticed that Purple was added for bling!
Those Black, White, Red and Purple quilts decorate the walls of my favorite room where I "retreat" several times a year in Mt. Calm, Texas at The Compass Centre -  The last pic is the window covering!

Here are more quilts that line the hallway:

Each room at The Compass Centre has a different name and color theme!

 One room has quilts on the beds that are all pink and black!
 Red*Hot 'n' Blue!

 Twisted Sisters!

 Are these flowers pictures on the wall? Or quilts?

As you can tell, this is a FUN place to "retreat"!!!  If you see a quilt that inspires you, it may be a kit.  Check out the shop on the web site.

Hope you have enjoyed these "Have-to-Share" pics!  Happy Quilting!
