Other than some road construction in Victorville, our familiar drive to Acton, California is uneventful on Tuesday morning. This is our first time staying at the Californian RV Resort, about 30 minutes from our former hometown. At $12/night less than the closer park, it saves us a good amount for our first two weeks here.
Terraced, level, concrete sites with 50 amp FHUs, nice pool and spa, and views of the surrounding hills, this is a good option for us. The spacing is "snug" with some road noise from Hwy 14. They are installing solar panels around the perimeter so there is construction noise during the weekdays as well.
Maximus is out shopping and trick-or-treating with his parents and invites us to meet them for dinner. It's wonderful to see them all!

|Maximus and mom, Jillian.|
|With dad, Nick.|
|He's getting so big!|
Of course I completely fail to get pics of the evening meet up, but we had a great time!
|Ezra and PopPop - that look :-))))|
|These two wore each out. Ezra and Tessa.|
It's chilly outside, and keeping a two-year-old entertained in 350 square feet is great fun. All the buttons and switches on the dash are very tempting :-)
|When a two-year-old can find the camera on a cellphone and take selfies....|
|He cracks himself up :-)))|
We get more errands and a doctor's appointment out of the way on Friday.
The next day Corey takes us out to breakfast and then we hang out at home until it's time to drop Bill off at a wedding, and I go to babysit Ezra. Shalise (Mommy) isn't feeling great so we all end up hanging out at their house. It is wonderful to spend time with this happy family. I don't take any pics.
Bill has a great time seeing old friends and three of his sons at the wedding, and we have fun sharing stories of our evening on the way home.
|Bill with daughter-in-laws Emily and Jillian - happy man!|
|After lifting the beams into place with a strap on the end of a forklift, these guys secure them with large bolts. Nothing quiet about an impact drill! They're so close to us, that's our ladder shadow at the bottom.|
There is no doubt what we miss the most in our travels. Grandchildren are so very special, and time with them is something we can't enjoy when we're on the road. We're having a great time with Ezra, and are looking forward to seeing more of Maximus. As much as we're ready to head out, it's going to be even harder this time!
|We get some gorgeous skies here.|
