Last weekend marked the inaugural expedition in the motor home. We were joined by Ralph's sisters, and one brother in-law (Who had coincidentally gotten an RV the same time Ralph did; how fun is that?!) and it happened to be his sister's birthday last week.
Well, we couldn't let that go by unnoticed. While we were en route to the beachfront campgrounds in Tillamook, I was busy with the helium tank, inflating clear balloons in a rather unsuccessful attempt at mimicking champagne bubbles. (I saw it done on Pinterest, and it didn't quite duplicate as planned, but it was festive anyway.)
Once we reached our destination, and were parked in our side-by-side camp spots, we spilled out and checked out the camp ground area.
It was fabulous.
(You will have to take my word for it, because at this point I forgot all about taking any photos for the entire rest of the trip.)
We then invited everyone in to our motor home and there we had our surprise birthday celebration. It was a hit, with balloons, a banner, and even a party hat for the special birthday girl.
We toasted her with champagne in the most fantastic plastic champagne glasses I have ever laid my eyes on. (Gotta love the Dollar Tree Store.)
We all had a grand time, and agreed it was far too short of a trip. (We planned just one night's get-a-way as we wanted to work out any and all glitches we might experience with motor home camping...) We're already planning to hit the open road again soon for our next big trip.
I can't wait!
