Extending Our Happily Ever After

"We do! Now let's live healthy and fit!"

Cousin time, while waiting on RV repairs

Leave a comment

We woke up after a great night’s sleep to a home cooked breakfast by my cousin, Natasha. The boys are young and so energetic, but they are all so sweet! I taught Aden (the oldest) the card game Speed. That game kept my brother and I busy for hours when I was young. We heard from the repair shop and our fuel filter is clogged and the fuel pump definitely needs to be replaced. We won’t be picking it up till Wednesday, so I had to call the campground again and see if we were able to still get our reservation. They were great about it. But we hoped to get Thursday night, too and .38 Special is coming into town, so they aren’t too sure about that. They would try working on it for us.
With that sort of handled, we decided to get some sightseeing done and went to Virginia City. On the way there, our dentist back in Scranton called letting us know of a credit on our account and if we wanted to leave it there our have it refunded… What luck and timing! As we are moving west, we couldn’t keep it with them, so the refund would help pay for our current RV repairs. What relief! Back to our trip to Virginia City…
What a very cool town!
We saw St.Mary’s of the Mountains first. Nevada’s first Catholic Church.

Then we walked the main street that had tons of shops and lots of places you can walk into with historical information about the town.

Lots of photo ops as well… Kind of reminiscent of Wall Drug in South Dakota.

Just a fun place to go and spend some time. We got some fudge from Grandma’s Kitchen to enjoy later.
We left there and drove to my cousin’s clothing consignment shop in North Carson City called “Its a Girl Thang”. I completely forgot to take pictures… But if you ever find yourself there, drop by.
We picked up pizza at Costco for dinner and that was it for the night. Fudge for dessert. Yum!

We are Marie, 49, and Ivan,58. We used to live on the East Coast and are now living in Southern California. Marie grew up in Southern California and Ivan was born and raised in Kent, England. We met while playing a word game online and Ivan hopped over the pond to marry me. He says that he would have moved to the moon if that was where I resided! We plan on traveling out our days together when we retire... in an RV, but that won't be happening for a while. I have an amazing son, Christopher and he makes me so proud!
