Home Safely and The Last Days in AZ

We arrived safely home Wednesday night. It was a twelve hour day on the road, but the weather was great besides a bit of wind at the start of the trip. So, we will share a few more pictures with you in the week ahead. Today we have some from the last few days of travel.

On The Road

What an interesting two days of travel! We left sunny, warm Tucson yesterday morning and reached Cedar City, Utah last night. We sensed that things were not going entirely smoothly with the motorhome, but we continued on. It was a long trek, but the children were delightfully distracted by other children as we traveled with some friends for the day. We caught the first glimpse of snow on our travels north and awoke to see a beautiful snowy mountain outside the RV campground this morning.

After about two hours of travel today, we lost sight of Dave. Things had stopped working (get more specifics from the guys if you want to know), so we waited along the road. After a while, a policeman checked on us (exciting for Sam), but no sign of Dave. Shortly he sped past us with momentum from the mountain road, just hoping to get to a service station. In Cove Fort, the mechanic said he couldn't help. Thank the Lord, Dave was able to go on.

Guess where "on" was? Back to Fillmore thirty miles up the road and the mechanic shop that we visited (and played for) on the way down. It was like meeting old friends. We sadly left Dave and his motorhome in Fillmore for repairs. The young children were upset by the whole event; not seeing Mr. K. all the way home. He may have been relieved for a day or two of quiet!

Then the wind began...we made it through Salt Lake City without even noticing it was 4 in the afternoon. But then we hit the storm. The wind was so rough and the snow coming so hard that we couldn't see very well in front of us. It just became too dangerous to keep going. So, we found the nearest exit and are waiting in Tremonton, Utah for the storm to abate. The Lord provided a hotel right away and a Denny's with "kids eat free on Tuesdays" right next door.

We trust the Lord for His reasons and His timing and are thankful to be in a warm room tonight instead of the trailer. I'm sure many pictures will follow.

Packing Up and the Final Day

It's time to head for home, but first the packing begins...
All month we have wondered where things are supposed to go. It's the blessing and reality of having too many things. We will have to assess how many were actually necessary after we get home. But even in the midst of packing we always have one faithful photographer or another. So, we share our messes and our family with you.

Can I be in the pet parade?

All this needs to go where?

Let's go up and watch the airplanes

Answered Prayers and Country Coach International Concert

Saturday we set up all the equipment in the Event Center of Lazy Days RV. On with practice...but Emily was having some problems with laryngitis. We have all been sustained through the very busy time of concerts with good health, but when we stopped several came down with colds. We didn't know how today would go as Emily sings melody through most of the songs and just couldn't sing! We prayed, sent out prayer requests and attended to her throat. We went to bed trusting in the Lord to fulfill His purposes. Whatever He wanted to do with the morning was up to Him. I was comforted by many verses this morning in my anxiety about the situation. Psalm 34 was great. I really appreciated Ps. 34:9-10. I cannot say the morning went smoothly, but we didn't pray for that. We did pray for Emily's voice and she sang beautifully!There were many other technical problems this morning, but I felt the Lord's peace through it all. 

Howdy! (Greg's normal intro)

Country Coach International - Thanks to Jim Nelson for the invite!
