Life with Riley

September, 2017

For our first full month of full timing, we parked at Newport Dunes Resort and RV Park in Orange County, CA. Lindsay had returned to work after Riley's birth, and we volunteered to keep her for the month. It was a great way to spend time with her and get used to retirement and full timing.

Although the sites are small, we were able to fit both cars in.

There's a lot to do near NP Dunes RV resort. It's within walking distance of Balboa Island, and a short drive to beaches and Long Beach Aquarium, and DisneyLand. Fair warning, this post is a lot about Riley. No apologies, Nana Bev's got the keyboard.
One lovely day, we rented a Duffy boat and toured Newport Harbor.
Riley's still deciding if she likes boating.

Captain Josh
Because he grew up near here, he knew a lot about the harbor so we had a great tour guide.

Riley's showing her love for Texas A&M which she comes by naturally.
(Mom and Uncle Evan are Aggies.) Whoop!

We took a stroller walk daily, and Riley
loved the swings next to the lagoon.

How to keep a 6 month old busy. Water and teething rings.
On our last night, family came to have dinner and send us off.
