Enjoying our time in Yuma

The last couple of weeks have just flown by. This is such a laid back area and we have really enjoyed it here.

We are really enjoying our time here whether it be just hanging around our RV or spending time with our friends.

We have had a few Happy Hours with Kevin & Arlene and Donnie & Karen, went out to dinner a few times, and went to the Indoor & Outdoor Flea Markets.

Friday night we went to the Cocopah Casino with Kevin & Arlene and Donnie & Karen for their Prime Rib & Seafood Buffet and to do a little gambling. Mac, Karen, and Donnie all left with more than they started with…Arlene & I didn’t….lol

Mac smoked some ribs here yesterday and we had 4 couple come and join us for dinner. They supplied the sides and dessert to go along with the meal. Everything was wonderful.

Great food, but the company and conversation were wonderful!

Today is our grandson, Ryan’s 16th birthday…Happy Birthday Ryan…we love you!!

We were up early(for us) and on the road to Quartzite for the day.

The scenery was awesome…wonder what this guy was doing????

WOW..Quartzite was hopping. There were booths and little stands set up everywhere selling all kinds of things.

We made a stop at McDonald’s in Quartzite for a friend of mine, LeAnn, who thought her cousin worked there. She sure did and we talked to her for a few minutes and I took a photo of her with my phone of her waving to LeAnn and I posted it on Facebook for LeAnn to see. What a small world.

Our main reason for the trip to Quartzite today was to attend the Escapee’s Happy Hour and to see a lot of our friends that we hadn’t seen for quite some time. It was great to catch up with them even though the time was short. Kevin & Arlene & Donnie & Karen also joined the Happy Hour. We got to see Keith & Donna, Bob & Molly, Ken & Cindy, Denny & Susie Orr, JB & Brenda, Howie & Norah, and we finally got to meet Mike and Janna.

It was a great couple of hours, but all too soon…as the sun was setting over Quartzite we were on the road back to Yuma…
