Back to CA, & Ardyn’s Baptism

Our time is AZ this Winter has come to an end.  It’s been a great time spent with friends and enjoying nice resorts.  But all good things must come to an end.

We left on Saturday to head to Indio, CA, to stay at the nicest Western Horizons park, Indian Waters.  We wanted to attend our Michael & Katie’s new daughter’s baptism on Sunday.  But we couldn’t bring our MoHo back to Laguna Woods Village until Tuesday.  Indio is a good stopping point which allows us to attend the baptism and visit our friends staying in Indio.  A perfect solution.

We made good time going from Camp Verde, AZ, down I-17 to Loop 101, then a straight shot down I-10 to Indio, about 370 miles.  We arrived at the resort about 3:00pm, and we got lucky with a 50 amp site with grass around it.  Sometimes arriving on Saturday limits the good sites.  The weather was a balmy 80 degrees, warmer than we’ve been all Winter in AZ.  It’s been a cool year there.

Sunday morning we got going early to drive to Murrieta for the 10:30 service.  It was about a 1 1/2 hour drive, and with light traffic we made good time.  Everybody was there and the service was a real celebration for Palm Sunday.  Oh, and also for the Baptism!IMG_2395 Ardyn really took to the ceremony, not crying once.



After church we all headed over to Michael & Katie’s new house for lunch.  Everyone had to take turns holding Ardyn.
