Our Year In Review - Part 3

The second week of August found us in Sycamore, IL which is near Chicago.  Mama loved this small town.  She was able to walk to shops and restaurants. It was here that Buddy, the scooter, came into our lives.  Mama was able to ride Buddy in Sycamore and DeKalb.

Our campground.


 We attended the Mutt Strut where we met Bryn, Scout and their folks, Donna and Chris.  Donna reads our blog and she identified that we were in the town next to her and invited us to the Mutt Strut.  It was a lot of fun!

Us and Bryn and Scout. Yes, another Scout.  BOL!
The folks found a lot of things to do in this area such as visiting Ronald Reagan's boyhood home, John Deere Historic Site and a car museum was much more than a car museum.  Oh, we can't forget the sock museum.

We were supposed to stay here until Thanksgiving, but Dad's work plans changed and we were went to Kansas City at the end of October.

We enjoyed our time in the Kansas City area. We actually stayed in Platte City, MO.  There is so much history in the area.  The Pony Express started here.  Jesse James grew up here and was killed here.  Harry Truman is from the area and the folks toured his library as well as his home.  The WWI Museum is also here.

The campground was decorated for Halloween.

We left Kansas City at the end of November and headed home (St. Louis area) to visit family for Thanksgiving. 

We arrived in Houston on December 2nd and that is where we will finish 2013. 

2013 has been good to us. We have explored and sniffed new areas. We have made new friends along the way. We have found some places are hard for us to leave and others we are thrilled to leave.  BOL!  Where will 2014 take us?  Stay tuned as our adventure continues.
