Final Days of the RV-Dreams Reunion Rally

Happy Anniversary

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!

Linda and her helpers had decorated the pavilion,     DSC_0331


and as we arrived, we received plastic leis and flowers for our hair.



When we got there, the caterers had the food all ready, including the roasted pig!         It's looking at me!

Hula Cake


Dinner -- poor piggy!

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.

Time to eat!


Dinner was delicious, and everybody managed to stuff themselves pretty well.

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,

Not as easy as it looks!

and flipping flip-flops through a hula hoop (which Bill had more luck with than Bryce did).

He did it!

As the sun went down, everybody began to gather around the firepit.

It was a beautiful night for a bonfire, and we stayed out late, talking and enjoying the fire. . . .         A beautiful fire!

. . . . 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!!
