“Other things may change us, but we start and end with the family.” – Anthony Brandt
The month in Miami was a bit of a whirlwind. There were birthday parties for December babies, holiday parties, an engagement party and a family BBQ that we hosted for 30+ family members at our campsite. Along with the group events, we spent some quality time with individual members of the family and with friends.
We also enjoyed the “community” at the Larry and Penny Thompson campground. There were lots of RVers here who return year after year, and many have formed longtime friendships. Every day there were groups of people walking and cycling around the park, playing games in the community room and getting together at their campsites. It was a really friendly atmosphere. When we mentioned our upcoming BBQ to them, both of our immediate neighbors contributed their picnic tables, chairs, coolers, games etc. Once again, RVers prove to be generous and helpful.
The BBQ was a great success. The family took over the green space behind our RV. There were games, and, as in any gathering of Latinos, lots of food and drink. It was great to have a casual, outdoor day after all of the dressy holiday parties. And it was another great opportunity to enjoy all of the younger generation and the interesting adults that they are becoming. A fun and intense month.~ Brenda
