We left Tucson in mid March and headed back to Atlanta, GA. The main reason? Well, we were expecting the arrival of our first grandchild! Our trek to Atlanta took us through some great stops and I will definitely take the time to share them with you here over the next few weeks.
When we travel long distances, we like to go with the 3-3-3 Rule. Basically, it means no more than 3 hours of driving per day; or 300 miles per day; or arrival at a campground no later than 3:00 PM. Following one of those options each day means that Dave doesn’t get too tired and at the same time, we both get to enjoy the sights along the way.
So the route home to Atlanta took about three weeks, and included stops in Alamogordo, NM; Carlsbad, NM; Galveston, TX; Mobile, AL; and Martin Lake, AL. Stay tuned for more posts about the sites that we visited along the way!
We parked our coach in my daughter’s driveway and began baby watch. Meet our daughter, Amanda and her husband, Daniel. This photo was taken about a week before Esme was born.
Our daughter went into labor on Wednesday and it was wonderful to be there with her for this amazing experience.
Esmeralda was born on April 20, 2017 at 8:35 AM after a long sleepless night. She weighed 6 lbs. 1 oz. A beautiful perfect little baby girl!
She looks like a little doll, doesn’t she? Me? Well, I look like I’ve been up all night. But it wasn’t nearly as exhausting for me as her mom!
Baby Esme is a beautiful addition to our family! She is the first grandchild on my family’s side, and the first girl grandchild on Daniels family’s side.
Did I mention before how excited we are to be here? That is one of the best advantages of full time RVing!
We will be in Atlanta until around the end of June when we will start our next campground job. I am currently working on making that one official and will let you know as soon as we have something on paper.
In the meantime, we are enjoying the Atlanta area, our wonderful family and our beautiful granddaughter!
