July 31; Friday, Last Night on the Road

Well, all good things must come to an end; thus, our dream vacation must do the same. We spent two nights in Ft. Scott, Kansas, visiting Gil's Dad, step-mom and his sisters and brother. This morning Dad and Helen left for Wichita, and Gil's sister Glenda and her husband Bill were to join them there tonight and then they all would drive out west to Dodge City to see Glenda and Bill's son and his wife and their children. They have a lovely new home there where one is a dentist (the son), and the other a pediatricain.(dau.-in-law). They have six children at last count.

Gil and I had a nice meal last night at Carol and Dan's house with Bill and Glenda. After supper Doug and Diana came out and we all looked at the trip pictures on the laptop computer (as slide shows). We left Ft. Scott this morning and stopped by Pittsburg, Ks, to see Gil's daughter for a while. She was helping her mom out at the Yarn Barn downtown. Then we headed east into Missouri, then south into Arkansas. We had a very pleasent drive through the Boston Mountains, and then stopped in Conway just 130 miles from home. We love this Corp of Engineer park here named Toad Suck on the Arkansas River. We will be home by noon tomorrow.
