Saturday was the last full day of the Reunion Rally and it also happened to be our 23rd wedding anniversary . . . so we celebrated with a luau!
and as we arrived, we received plastic leis and flowers for our hair.
Before we could eat, there was one presentation to make. Several of the RV-Dreamers had come up with the idea to have everyone write a message to Howard & Linda on colored pieces of paper, which they collected and taped to a large poster board. They presented the board to them before dinner, along with a small book to keep them all in after the rally. Needless to say, H & L were very touched!
What a great RV-Dreams Family we have!
Then it was time to eat . . . and the skin was peeled off the pig.
Dinner was delicious, and everybody managed to stuff themselves pretty well.
our family photo,
and the RV-Dreams Chatroom Group,
it was time for the fun and games to begin!
Bryce was ready for some new challenges,
but with a bunch of newbies on his team, he didn’t fare as well this time!
After the relay races, we moved outside for some more games,
Folding-chair volleyball --
some dart game with watermelons dressed as pigs (which Howard proved to be quite good at),
and flipping flip-flops through a hula hoop (which Bill had more luck with than Bryce did).
As the sun went down, everybody began to gather around the firepit.
Tom and one of the other guys got the fire going.
. . . . and the full moon.
On Sunday morning, we gathered bright and early for a delicious catered breakfast, followed by good-byes and hugs.
We got the pavilion all cleaned up and straightened up, and rigs were already rolling out of the rally park as we were walking back to the rig.
We went to church, and by the time we got back, the majority of the rally attendees were gone, including Howard & Linda. Don & Lois and Don & Cheryl were all hitched up and waiting for us to get back. We said our goodbyes to them, knowing we’ll see them again soon!
The first-ever RV-Dreams Reunion Rally was a smashing success . . . and we can’t wait until the next one!!
