so who's idea was the "shower-closet"???

So, you will never fail to get the wildest stories when you have 9 people living in an RV for months at a time, with 3 pairs of concert clothes each... we've found that you need A LOT of closet space!!!
However, our humble vehicle wasn't designed for 9 people and their 3 sets of concert clothes each....

Resolve: Use the unused shower and stick a clothes rack in there!! Problem solved. :)

Well... (here's the wild stories part) The other night when the bros and Dad were setting up stage, I went to the 'shower-closet' to retrieve my clothes and to my unfortunate surprise, I found that the shower head was turned ON and washing down all of our clothes!!!! (dad later discovered a leak!)
It is 1 very short hour till show time mind you, and we have 7 sets of sopping jeans, ties, shirts, vests, and black pants!!

Resolve: use Mom's travel size hair dryer and put Jen to work. Problem mostly solved:)

Mom was thankful that her clothes, along with Dad's remained safe,sound, and dry in the official closet:)

So, I can't say I got everything exactly "dry" (sorry boys!!) But hey, jeans and tiny hair dryers weren't meant for each other!! Thank the Lord for laundry mats!! :)

By the way Jes, thanks for snapping pics of me working! haha;)

We had the wonderful opportunity in Topeka, Kansas to meet a family with 10 sons!! They came to our show and invited us to their house afterwards. Thanks Powells for the great fellowship and your kind hospitality! We talked till 2 in the morning!

Here's a picture of the 13 kids who were still awake!

We are doing well out here, although it is getting extremely cold!!

these are just some pics to prove we're still alive:)

Our amazing dad n mom :)
