On Thursday we picked Paityn up about 4:45 from school (daycare) as she was spending the night with us while her parents and baby brother were out of town. We had a few items to pick up so we went to Walmart. Papaw said if she was good she could have a present. She wanted a pink present. So we found a bunch of pink paint chips and she was ecstatic! Then we went to the toy aisle and found her a miniature Barbie. She also decided she wanted a pink cupcake…which we found in miniature!
Picking our Pnut up from school
She was such a good girl! This was her first experience sleeping away from home, Momma & Papa and she was an angel. She played with toys, colored in her coloring book and watched Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. We made her a bed on the floor in the living room and we all went to bed about 8:30 (we read for a while) and she slept until 7:00ish. She never left her bed until she saw me come out of the bedroom and go into the bathroom at 7:30. She met me with a big smile on her face.
Throwing balls outside for Papaw to get
We took her back home Friday morning so that we could help prepare for the promotion party Zack & Kelsea were having that night in honor of Zack’s promotion to Captain. The day was spent cooking, babysitting the smoker (that had 3 briskets in it) and straightening the house. Michael worked on some projects to prepare us for our move this coming Monday.
Kelsea & Mike changing the chips in the smoker
The party turned out very nice with about 20 – 25 people stopping by at one time or another. We had a Texas style brisket meal with corn on the cob, baked beans, cole slaw, macaroni & cheese and corn bread muffins. The food was very good and we really enjoyed meeting so many of Zack’s co-workers.

Today we did some more prep for our upcoming move and this evening we went over to Zack and Kelsea’s to watch Paityn & Cameron while they went out for a few hours with friends. Our time here is coming to an end and it will be very hard to leave our family behind….again. Thankfully, we will be with our youngest son and his family in three short months.
Today Michael finished plumbing in the water pump. When we redid the plumbing a few weeks ago he didn’t have time to plumb the water pump so he did that today. We plan to do some boondocking in Flying J parking lots on our way east so he wanted to make sure the pump was good to go.
Plumbing the water pump
We also had several errands to run. Last week we dropped our comforter off at Lincoln Cleaners to have it dry-cleaned ($10…not bad!) so we picked that up this afternoon.
Picking up the comforter
We drove into Portland to pick up Michael’s drill that we dropped off shortly after we arrived here at Chas H. Day Co. We picked that up…still in non-working order – more on that at a later date.
Chas H Day Co
We stopped at Batteries Plus (in Portland as well…NO sales tax!) so that Michael could purchase two 6 volt batteries to replace our current 12 volt battery. Supposedly you get 215 amp hours out of the two 6 volt batteries and only 200 amp hours out of the 12 volt batteries plus the 6 volt batteries were cheaper. We will see.
2 – 6 volt batteries
We stopped at the Salvation Army to drop off our donated items.
We donated nearly 3 garbage bags of stuff
We also stopped by Zack & Kelsea’s again…for a couple of reasons. To add another coat of varnish to Cam’s stool and to pick up a few items for Paityn as she will be spending the night at Nana & Papaw’s house tomorrow night. Her Momma & Papa (and baby brother) will be going to the Seattle area so Papa can umpire a softball game and then they’ll do some site-seeing too. They won’t get back until late so Pnut will spend the night with Nana & Papaw. Keep your fingers crossed that she does ok on her first overnight.
While we were out Michael treated me to dinner at Great Taste Chinese. Kelsea and I had been there on Saturday and it was so good I had to go back!
Hot & sour soup hit the spot on a chilly, rainy day
We shared Shredded Pork in Peking sauce, Vegetable Fried Rice and Sweet & Sour . Chicken. We have plenty for lunch tomorrow!
We started at the Visitor’s Center where we watched a 22 minute video covering the history of the fort, stamped our Passport book and checked to see if they had the military version of the America The Beautiful pass for our son (they do!).
Across from the Visitor’s Center is Officer’s Row. Officer’s Row consists of 21 Victorian homes that were inhabited by officers that were stationed at Vancouver Barracks. The homes were built from 1849 to 1907. Vancouver Barracks & Officers Row are owned and operated by the city of Vancouver.

Marshall House, built in 1886, is open and available for viewing
The Grant House, built in 1849 and the oldest of the homes still standing was one of the original 9 log cabins built to house the officers. The Grant House was occupied by the Post-Commander and today is used as a restaurant. We hadn’t had lunch yet so we decided to stop for a sandwich before moving on.

After lunch we drove through Vancouver barracks – stopping to check out the Post Hospital, barracks, and the Red Cross Building. We also stopped at the modern-day shopette to use the restroom and pick up a soda. The post is still used by the military but not very much. The shopette sells cigarettes and alcohol to people holding a military id card at a pretty big savings.
The Post Hospital built in 1904 was considered to be one of the most modern and efficient hospitals in the nation.
The Infantry Barracks built in 1887 is the oldest structure still standing in Vancouver Barracks
We moved on to Ft. Vancouver, first stopping at the ‘Rangers station’ to show our America the Beautiful pass so we didn’t have to pay the $3.00 admittance fee. They offer a free audio tour that last about an hour, which we chose to take them up on.
The perimeter of Ft. Vancouver
There was a group of high school students visiting and the rangers stopped us and let us know that he was going to be opening the Fur Store and we could join them. Rather than being a store the Fur Store was actually a storage facility that housed all of the dried pelts that were to be shipped back to England. There were samples of several different pelts (beaver, otter, wolf, mink, etc) and the ranger did a really good job of explaining the different characteristics of the different furs to us.

When the ranger was done we went back to our audio tour and visited the various buildings around the fort. The post commander quarters, the bakery, the dispensary, the bastion, the counting house, jail and the carpenter’s shop. It was helpful that we had the audio tour to explain what was what as it wouldn’t have been nearly as interesting without it.

When we completed our tour we decided to walk the short .5 mile path to the Land Bridge that was built in 2007 and spans across Washington 14. It’s a pedestrian bridge that is filled with dirt, plants, trees and art. Very pretty concept but seems like it could be maintained a bit more.

From the land bridge we had some great views of Ft. Vancouver, Pearson Airfield (not enough time to visit this time) AND Mt. Hood.

Have to share this picture as well… Ft. Vancouver with Mt. Hood in the background
We had a fun day but now it was time for work…thankfully just a little bit of work! We headed over to Zack’s so that I could put some ‘stamped’ artwork on Cameron’s stool before Michael added varnish. Even with stamps my artistic talents are very limited. I added a football, soccer ball and an orange tomato-like thing is supposed to be a basketball! This stool is made with LOVE….keep that in mind! When the paint was dry Michael added the first coat of varnish.
First coat of varnish applied
Kelsea was gracious enough to invite us to join them for dinner and we happily accepted. One of my favorite duties has been helping Paityn down from the table and into the bathroom to help her wash her hands after dinner. I love hearing ‘Nana do it’. She melts my heart. Paityn has warmed up to her Papaw quite a bit lately and he gladly laid on the floor with her after dinner to play a game on her Ipad again.
Paityn & Papaw…and Elmo too!
We got home shortly after 8:00 pm and were able to go through 4 more Rubbermaid totes. Packing away winter clothes and setting aside things to donate to charity before relaxing for the rest of the evening. When we moved into our coach 2 years ago we each had 3 totes with ‘seasonal’ clothing in the basement…we are now down to 1 each! Yay!
Spent the day at home catching up on things we’ve let go by the wayside…balancing the checkbook, managing our budget, grocery shopping, laundry. Feels good to be caught back up again!
Direct TV arrived about 9:00 am this morning and replaced our dish and also installed a different tripod as the tech said that the Direct TV doesn’t authorize a regular tripod. Hmmm….kinda strange since they’re the ones that installed our original dish on our tripod over a year ago AND also did a service call back in September when it was sitting on the tripod and nothing was said. Oh well…we have all channels once again! Still not 100% sure what the issue was but it sounds like it was our dish. It had fallen over while we were in Utah and had a couple of dings in it.
New satellite dish install
Over the last few weeks we’ve also been going through all the cabinets, drawers, closets etc throughout the ENTIRE coach to see what we can get rid of. We’ve been living in our coach for just over 2 years now and we decided that if it hasn’t been touched since we moved in…we more than likely don’t need it. We still have to finish going through the basement and then we’ll be done. The couch is currently loaded down with stuff to donate and we’re thankful that the dumpster isn’t far away as we’ve pitched quite a few things as well. We have a Good Will & a Salvation Army down the street from us so we’ll be making a trip to one or the other in the very near future.
Saturday morning Kelsea, the babies & I went to the Vancouver Farmers Market. It’s a bit early in the season yet so there wasn’t a whole lot of fruits & veggies so we didn’t take much home…some beef sticks, popcorn & bread. But it was nice to get out and walk around and see all the different things that the vendors had on display.
Vancouver Farmers Market
We stopped at Great Taste Chinese Restaurant for lunch. It’s the best Chinese (sit down) food I’ve had in a very long time! I might have to talk Michael into going again before we leave!
Today (Mother’s Day) we spent the majority of the day at Zack & Kelsea’s. Michael & Zack worked on making a headboard for Paityn’s big girl bed. The headboard will match the dresser he made her a few months ago.
Assembled…just needs stain now
Michael put the last coat of stain on Cameron’s stool today as well. Now I have a few stencils to add to the top before it gets varnished.
I got another chance to Skype with the New York Barnett’s. It’s always so good to be able to spend time with my kids and grandbabies. Paityn loves to watch Alex. She’ll just sit quietly and watch whatever he does. Alex loves to play ‘So Big!’ so I made sure to take a picture of him playing!
Zack grilled steaks for dinner and made strawberry shortcake for dessert! It was a nice day spent with our kids and grandbabies – the very best kind of day in my opinion! Paityn even played a game on her Ipad with Papaw (initiated by Paityn herself!) which made him a happy Papaw…she’s still not 100% sure of him.
Papaw’s in 7th heaven.
Before I forget! Michael received a phone call from the Veteran’s Administration yesterday! It seems that the man who filed Michael’s paperwork for him either never had Michael sign an authorization form for the VA to go through Michael’s medical records or he lost it as they never received any. So here we are 18 days short of 1 year ago that the paperwork was supposed to have been filed and just now getting contact. Anyway…the woman is faxing Michael the paperwork tomorrow and will also talk to the person that is supposed to look over his medical records tomorrow and ask them to put a ‘rush’ on it. She said that if everything went smoothly he could have a rating by the end of the month. Keep your fingers crossed!
On Wednesday we went over to Zack & Kelsea’s for dinner. Kelsea made a yummy Chicken Primavera dish. While Kelsea worked on dinner I tried to work on a new dinner menu and Michael worked on getting Cameron’s name routered into the top of his stool. Zack was at work and got home shortly before dinner was ready.
We’ve been having some issues with our satellite dish since we were in Utah a few weeks back. For some reason it won’t pick up any of the HD channels. Michael’s tried different things with no results. He took our LMB off and took it over to Zack’s and the two of them replaced Zack’s with ours and it worked just fine. Back to the drawing board.
On Thursday we drove to Washougal, Washington (Washougal means Rushing Waters) which is only about a 30 minute drive southeast of here along the Columbia River. We were headed to the Pendleton Woolen Mill to participate in the free tour that they offer. We arrived just a few minutes before the 11:00 am tour began so we took some time to browse through the outlet store where the tour begins. They have some beautiful, but price merchandise. We were really drawn to the wool blankets and spent most of our time browsing amongst them. But at $200+ we decided we didn’t really need any new blankets.

Gorgeous but pricey
The tour took about an hour and was super interesting. Our tour guide has been giving the tour for 7 years and was very knowledgeable. We had just 3 of us (plus a new employee that will soon be giving tours) on the tour so we go a little more information than the average tour, which was nice. Unfortunately, no camera’s were allowed inside the mill. We watched the beginning process of the wool coming into the mill in its raw form, getting compacted to reduce the amount of moisture content. We walked through out the mill and saw lots of beautifully colored yarns on their spools. We watched a woman rewind yarns onto a machine that was spinning them on to large spools.
An interesting bit of trivia our guide gave us: In the early 60s a group known as the Pendletones adopted the name from the surf uniform of the day – Pendleton shirts over a white t-shirt & khaki pants. Who was this group you ask? The ever famous Beach Boys!
Meet the Pendletones in their Pendleton shirts
After the tour we walked the short distance to the river front to enjoy lunch at Kelly’s Kitchen. The walk was a pretty one…through a tunnel under Washington Hwy 14 and then down a hill to a floating dock that had a few benches on it. We picked a bench and enjoyed our lunch while watching a few boats pass by, a dog at play and a couple of fisherman try their luck.

The tunnel was beautifully done….there were several of these pieces of art along one wall

A great place to enjoy lunch!

When we left Washougal we headed to Zack & Kelsea’s for dinner. It was my turn to make dinner and I made Hamburger Steaks & gravy with mashed potatoes, green beans & asparagus.
While I made dinner Michael worked on staining Cameron’s stool. Just one more coat of stain, applying a couple of painted pictures and some varnish and it should be complete.
Staining Cam’s stool
A few weeks ago Michael & Zack worked on my silverware drawer and made a few extra divisions so that things weren’t shifting around so much as we traveled. At that time we decided that we wanted the second drawer down altered so that it was divided as well. Yesterday he got that drawer taken care of and it looks great! These were some of my favorite mods!

Zack & Paityn went for a bike ride (and Zack deployed a bunch of Munzees) to see how Paityn liked her new trailer. Apparently she wasn’t too happy after her snacks ran out and was ready to go home. When she got home she was happy to see her baby brother.
All ready to go!
There they go!
Someone loves their baby brother
This afternoon we watched Cameron for a little while while Kelsea went to Paityn’s daycare for Muffins With Mom. When they got home Kelsea guided me in making a tie blanket for Babies Wrapped in Love. Some of the Heartland owners will be making & purchasing baby blankets to be donated to this worthy cause while we’re at the National Rally in Goshen, Indiana next month.
Muffins with Mom! (she scratched her nose in her sleep!)
Cameron was so good…he’s learning to coo
The blanket I’m working on…almost done.
We all went to Pacific Northwest Fish Co. for dinner tonight. We all tried something different – Zack – Ono & chips, Kelsea & Paityn – shrimp & chips, Michael – haddock & chips and I got the scallops & chips. Prices were very reasonable and the portions were quite large. We all enjoyed our dishes and would good back again.

After dinner we stopped at Coldstone and each got an ice cream and sat outside and enjoyed the beautiful weather.

Zack & Kelsea lent us their carpet cleaner so when we got back home Michael cleaned the living room carpet and will do the bedroom tomorrow. So glad to have the carpets nice and clean!
Yesterday we rented a car from Hertz and drove 150 miles north to spend the day in Seattle. Our diesel guzzling, wide hipped, extra long truck just doesn’t do well in tight city driving and finding a parking place is always tough. Glad we did as we saved a few dollars in the long run.
Seattle! The day started out overcast but cleared up to be a beautiful day.
Had no idea that part of Seattle was on a ‘hill’…not easy walking up some of those streets!
The rental parked in a parking lot across from Pike Place Market. Cost us $26 to park for 8 hours!
Our first stop was Pike Place Market down near Puget Sound. When I worked at Lands End we watched a motivational video that took place at the Pike Place Fish Market and I’d wanted to visit ever since! The fish mongers put on quite a show for the customers…throwing fish back and forth, chanting in unison. It was fun to see in person! The stock of fish & seafood is pretty darn impressive too!
Pike Place Market
Tossin’ a fish!
Flingin’ more fish!
We wandered around a little bit…checking out some of the local vendors, gorgeous flower arrangements ($10 or $15 a bouquet!) and yummy fruits & veggies. We didn’t even touch half of the market though…unfortunately we had other things we wanted to see so we left much of the market for ‘next time’….and there will be a next time!
Gorgeous flower bouquets
Part of the market area
We stopped for lunch at Pike Brewing Company, located in the market. The place was very cool with the obligatory beer making set up in the middle of the place. Unfortunately, neither of us were blown over by our meals. We started with crab & artichoke dip that was served with pita chips….it was very good. I ordered the halibut & chips while Michael had a burger & fries. The fries were good but everything else was very bland almost like they were too afraid to over-season the food so then they didn’t season enough.

Michael & our meals
Just behind Pike Place Market is Post Alley…just a short alley but strange too. You will find the ‘Gum Wall’ here. Thousands upon thousands of pieces of chewed gum have been stuck to the wall (there are signs on the opposite wall asking people NOT to put gum on it). Some people are creative and write their name in gum, make a flag or post their business card to the wall using gum. It’s actually kind of pretty…all the different colors…but in reality pretty nasty…LOL I made sure to bring gum with us and we each added to the ‘collection’! You just gotta!
This is just part of the gum wall.
Cool…but quite nasty

There you have it! (The white piece)
From the Gum Wall we walked a short distance down to the water front stopping to find a couple of Munzees here and there (we’d been able to capture almost 10 virtual Munzees when we first walked into the Market!). The Munzees brought us to the Seattle Ferris Wheel, a boat tour company, a seafood restaurant, hot dog stand etc.

Our main goal in walking along the water front was to visit Ye Olde Curiosity Shop on pier 54. The shop has been in business in one form or another since 1899 and run by the same family ever since. It’s a souvenir shop with a collection of oddities all over the place – 2 mummies named Sylvia & Sylvester, a mummified mermaid, shrunken heads, a 2 headed calf, a flattened walrus face etc. If you’re ever in the area it’s worth a quick stop.

Sylvester was about 45 years old when he died of a gunshot wound to the abdomen which is easily seen.
Our last stop for the day was at the Hiram M. Chittenden Locks – or more commonly known as the Ballard Locks (neighborhood in which the locks are located). There is also a botanical garden and fish ladder located on the premises and everything is free.
Michael with the working lock display
When we first arrived at the lock there were 2 small boats already in the lock and later a larger tug boat went through and finally an even larger tugboat came through. We were able to watch the entire process with the largest tugboat and it was really pretty cool!

The water in the lock is now as high as the water in the lake and the boat can make the transition from the sound to the lake.
Away she goes!
Unfortunately, there were no fish going through the fish ladder while we were here. It looks like the best times to view the salmon ‘running’ would be July – September. But it was still interesting to see how the process would work. A fish ladder is a man-made structure that assists fish in their natural migration. The salmon lay their eggs and then the adults and juvenile salmon go back out into the Puget Sound. We’d both like to come back and see it in action.
The fish ladder viewing area.
In the spring, the juvenile salmon, called smolt, leave Lake Washington for the Puget Sound. They travel slower than the current, which causes them to turn backwards and go through the smolt slide tail first. There are several smolt slides here that are installed in the spring and the removed in the fall after the migration.
A view of a smolt slide from above. See any fish?
We left the Ballard Locks about 7:00 pm not really looking forward to the 2.5 hour drive home. Not long after setting out I happened to look at my Munzee app and notice that we were going to go by a large cluster of virtual Munzees. We decided to make a quick detour to capture them. We pulled into a parking lot and were able to capture 33 of the 41 from the car. We got out of the car and walked a short distance to capture the remaining 8. It wasn’t long before we realized that we were parked in front of the corporate office for Groundspeak - the mother company for Geocache!
While we were out walking we found a beautiful view of the sound from the Groundspeak campus. We also came across some peculiar statues that seemed to be waiting for a bus and a statue of Patches the Clown, a local Seattle icon for many years. It turned out to be a pretty cool detour!

Fitting in with the crowd
We’re already looking forward to going back to Seattle….8 hours is not nearly enough time to spend in the area! We didn’t end up getting home until 11:58 and we were pooped but it was a great day!
So for the last 3 days we’ve been Munzee-holics. It was a double point weekend so we got double points on anything that earned us points…capturing, deploying, others capturing our deployed Munzees etc. On Friday, Michael and I went out alone. On Saturday, all six of us went out (babies included) and on Sunday, just Michael, Zack, Paityn and I went out. We had a lot of fun but by last night we were all pretty pooped!

This sign had a Munzee on it but had fallen down so Zack went to his handy-dandy Munzee kit, grabbed some zip ties and put it back up!

In Battle Ground, Washington there is a local dairy, Anderson Dairy. Paityn loves milk and was pretty excited to see big trucks filled with milk as well as big huge vats/silos filled with milk. We took a few minutes to rest in the shade of the gigantic milk containers. It was pretty darn warm out!
Paityn knocking on the big vats of milk while Papa & Papaw strategize.
On Saturday we ran into a couple other Munzers and had a good time chatting before we all went our separate ways.
A gathering of Munzers!
Also in Battle Ground we came across this old church that was now a Coffee Shop & Deli. I made Zack deploy one there to bring people to the place and see how neat it was!
I had Zack deploy one at the church to bring others to the area so they could see how neat it was too!
By the end of our spree Paityn was out cold…holding the flowers she’d got for her Mama!
Today we did some errands and grabbed a few more Munzee’s along the way. When we got home and Michael was unloading the back of the truck he noticed that some very nice person had decided to decorate our truck with a nice 24 inch key mark on the passenger side hind quarter.
Yesterday started a big Munzee weekend…double points on anything that gets you points. Michael and I went out for a few hours yesterday morning and deployed a bunch and even ran into Zack, who tried to make a sneak attack! We both ended up making just over 1,000 points which is CRAZY!
Back at home Michael installed our new bathroom faucet and it looks & works great! No more banging your hands on the back of the sink when you wash your hands.
The new improved faucet!
We’re looking forward to a great day today – sunny with a high in the low 80s! We’ll be going over to Zack & Kelsea’s shortly and have plans to do a bunch of Munzee hunting with the whole crew! The Munzee servers have been having a REALLY tough time keeping up so keep your fingers (& toes) crossed that we are as successful as yesterday morning.
Yesterday was spent at home with me working on my LTA stuff for the upcoming National Heartland Rally and Michael doing odds and ends outside.
While we were in Phoenix, in March. our central vacuum cleaner developed a mind of its own and wouldn’t turn off unless we went into the basement and pulled the plug. Michael had asked on the Heartland forum if anyone else had run into this problem. Fortunately, someone else had and told Michael just what to do to fix it. It seems that there is a relay circuit that sticks. The solution? Hit the canister in the spot where that relay is and unstick it! Did it work? It did! LOL Thankfully, it was a nice easy fix and we can now vacuum effortlessly once again!

‘X’ marks the spot to hit!
Today we met Zack and Kelsea at the Elite School of Beauty and we all got pedicures! A nice treat for sure! The two young ladies that did Michael and my pedicures were very friendly (so different from going to a regular place where most of the people are Asian and don’t speak very good English.) Somehow we got to talking about Munzee (which they’d never heard of) and I think we may have got them interested enough to try it!
Kelsea & Zack (and Cameron) enjoying their pedicures.
Afterward we went over to Zack & Kelsea’s and Zack washed Kelsea’s car while Michael washed the truck tool box and the bed of the truck with Zack’s pressure washer. While they did that we girls (& Cameron) were in the house Skyping with the New York Barnett’s. Paityn was totally enamored with watching her cousin, Alex play! Skype…it’s a WONDERFUL thing!

Tonight was Zack’s turn to make dinner. He made some yummy home-made pizza. Shortly after finishing dinner we headed home for the evening as it was nearly 8:00 pm. The days go so quickly!
