Trailer time again!

It was a terrible weekend for many people in the States with the tornados that went through especially In Joplin, Missouri.  So devastating!  This has been a spring of so much devastation throughout the US and in Slave Lake Alberta where the major wildfire destroyed 40% of the town.  I can't even imagine what these people must have gone through and what they are going through now.  So sad!

Well, we enjoyed a beautiful sunny Victoria Day weekend at the trailer.  Early in the week they were calling for rain and terrible weather but thankfully for us things changed and it was wonderful.  Krystal, Adrian and Keira came up on Friday evening but unfortunately, Keira got sick and they ended up having to leave Saturday right after dinner.  Poor girl was running a fever, coughing, stuffed up and just not feeling well at all.  I wondered if it was an allergy but it seemed to continue on for a few days with the cough.  Now Hannah has it but along with it she has been throwing up as well.  Let's hope it makes it stay short and doesn't affect everyone in the household. 

I'm hoping to go back up to the trailer again tomorrow after I am done work but I will wait and see. We want to scrub the outside of the trailer this weekend as well as the awning weather permitting.  When I got home on sunday afternoon I was ready to get the lawnmower out and cut the grass knowing it was going to be quite long after all the rain we had had last week.  Well, you talk about long!  Wow!  Adding a spring fertilizer and all the rain we have had through April and May  sure made it grow and quickly too.  In fact we have had to cut it many times already and it seems like every 3 or so days it needs to get done again. The nice thing is that it looks really nice for the most part (except the side where it grows weird stuff) but overall it looks great!  Come the hot dry weather and it doesn't look so great then so we enjoy it while we can.
