I have been enjoying visiting blogs and decided to start my own, even though I don't know what I am doing or if anyone will even be interested in reading what I have to say. I am a 50 year old management consultant who has been married to the the love of my life for 30 years and have two grown daughters and a son-in-law who we are very proud of. We are blessed to live in Scottsdale Arizona and are enjoying getting out and experiencing it in our RV! Thanks for stopping by our blog and please consider joining us, who knows where we will go...Kevin & Tracy.

A Great Weekend!

We had such a wonderful time with our daughter Stephanie and son in law Randy this weekend in Wilsonville, OR.  

We enjoyed our tour of the Domaine Drouhin Winery, which was about 45 minutes from our kid's apartment and the views were unbelievable, as you can see below. We enjoyed some wonderful Chardonnay and Pinot Noirs, and even though Tracy doesn't normally drink alcohol, she enjoyed a few sips as well.

Wouldn't mind having one of these at home

Our surroundings in Oregon were so different from the desert we left and I couldn't stop taking pictures of the beautiful green trees and colorful plants.  

Our flights were on time and smooth and I was even able to take advantage of my US Airways Preferred Status to bring some wine home at no extra charge.

So we are back in the swing of things and it is great to be starting my week off on Tuesday rather than Monday. Thanks for the visit and I hope that your weekend was great as well!

Wilsonville, Oregon!

Well we are in beautiful Wilsonville today and the weather couldn't be better. We are here to celebrate our oldest daughter Stephanie's 24th Birthday today and of course Mother's Day tomorrow.

We are headed to a winery tour this morning and a BBQ this afternoon, so it will be a fun day for sure.

Tracy's parents were supposed to join us, but her Mom had to have an emergency appendectomy on Thursday, so we are sad that they are not with us this weekend. Please keep Pat in your prayers for a complete recovery.

We are enjoying our $50 per night room at the Quality Inn in Wilsonville. I was a little concerned with the 2.5 star rating on Hotwire, but the reviews were good and I am glad that we booked it.

Well back to the heat of AZ on Monday, but I wanted to wish all you Moms a wonderful Mother's Day and thanks for all that you do for all of us!

Amazon Gift Card!

Tracy and I were given a $100 Amazon Gift Card for Christmas from her cousin, which was both unexpected and much appreciated. 

Tracy doesn't do much on-line shopping and had never actually visited Amazon. I have spend a lot of time on Amazon and was looking forward to identifying and buying something using this gift card.  

Well we kind of forgot that we had the card until about a week ago when Tracy said that she really didn't need or want anything from Amazon, so if I had something I wanted, I should use the card.  

Well she certainly didn't have to ask me twice, I was happy to do some online shopping and it didn't take me long to find some things for our RV that I have been wanting for sometime.  

I was amazed how quickly I could spend the $100 and how few items I actually bought.  I am always happy to get free shipping, which I did with these items, since it was more than $50.  Unfortunately, part of the order requires that some work be done, like installing the Cyclone Vent and waxing our rig, but that is all part of the fun.  

Hope you are all having some fun and thanks for stopping by for a visit!

This will wait until its cooler!
Nice cover, but expensive!
Didn't realize that I needed two of these, so this is the second one.
