Father's Day Weekend at Tuttle Creek Reservoir

We made a quick trip up to Manhattan this weekend to visit friends and family Father's Day. Doug and I thought it would be fun to drive up there in Doug's dad's spacious RV. We've taken the kids on a trip every summer in the RV so it is a treat they look forward to. In a couple of weeks, we are going to Denver in the RV with Doug's parents, brother and our niece. This little trip up to Manhattan was our dry run to see how things would work with Ella along.

We found a great campsite at Tuttle Creek Reservoir next to one of the smaller fishing ponds. We had to drive in rain the whole way there, but the skies cleared up in the evening as we finally arrived at the lake. Later that evening we were told that the area was under a tornado watch and we had heavy rain again.

On Sunday, we made our way to Junction City to see my family and had lunch with them at a local Mexican place. Yum!

We made it home before 5, so we could get the RV emptied out and get settled in for the week ahead of us. Too bad gas is so expensive, RVing is a great way to travel!
