This morning we chatted with the Peabody Duck Master, Don, before leaving the hotel. He was so kind and let Sam help him roll out the red carpet for the ducks. She, of course, loved it. We all got in the rental car and Dana drove us to our RV. I sort of had a pit in my stomach, thinking it would have been towed. When we came around the corner, there she was, the Turd, in all her glory. And, to boot, she started right up. I am perhaps not giving enough credit to our faithful ride.
We parted ways with the Biscontis- they went to the airport, and we went to Arkansas. We had such a great time with them, and we so apreciated them flying all the way out to meet us. I tried to talk the kids into going to Vicksburg, MS, to see one of the greatest Civil War battle fields. However, they (showing great maturity) chose to get to Little Rock early so they could catch up on school work of all things. I said, "Blow it off, let's go!" But I lost, so here we are at the KOA, and they've all done a bunch of work. Who is the responsible one here??
I did get some more alone time in Wal-Mart today since it's only 3 miles from our campsite. Tomorrow afternoon we will gratefully arrive at the Churchills, Kevin's parents. Kevin's daughter, Emma, is a classmate of Lilly's at Hearst. Kevin volunteered his parents to take us in, and they kindly said they would.
