Our Granddaughter turned 10 last Friday and her birthday wish was a party at Build-A-Bear (about an hour away) then a picnic at a park. The minimum party number was 5 plus John and me made at least seven seats needed to get there... with only 5 seats in the Subaru and no second vehicle. I hit on the idea of using the Phoenix as our second vehicle and it worked as an awesome party mobile (and let Chloe invite a few more guests). We loaded the ice cream and cupcakes and taco bar fixings into the rig then divided up the 6 kids for the ride. They took turns so they all got to ride in the RV. We rolled into the the park and found a spot in the shade near some picnic tables and a playground. We kicked the generator on to heat up the tacos and laid everything out on the tables. We didn't have to worry about missing a serving spoon or forgetting matches or anything because it was all on board. It was perfect and a good time was had by all.

So, even if you aren't out wandering the country, keep your Phoenix in mind in case you ever need a party mobile. It beats hauling coolers and boxes of stuff around. If it was too hot, we would have kicked on the AC and partied inside.

A side note on Build-A-Bear - they were awesome. All the kids loved making their own stuffed animal and picking an outfit for them. They all helped each other "shop" for the outfits and oohed and aahed over the stuff... and they all want to go back. The party cost was not terrible if you consider what you pay for goodie bags, decorations and such and the stuffed toy beats the heck out of the goody bag junk.

We could have skipped the dinner just taken them to the mall food court after the party and they would have been happy there too (but then no fun in the party mobile). You can also order online and either get the critter pre-stuffed (no fun in that but good if no Build-A-Bear nearby) OR have it shipped flat. You take your sad little flat animal to Build-A-Bear and they help you stuff it for free and give you a nice box... even if you bought all your clothing and everything online, you still get to use their stuffing machine, "wash" station, dressing "room", etc. Great store for kids... and maybe adults. John wants a Minion. We volunteer a lot and call ourselves Minions so he wants a stuffed minion. We'll be going back to Build-A-Bear soon to bring a cute little yellow critter to life. I suspect it will go on the road with us when we return to the wild and free retired life... someday soon I hope.

When we lived in Maryland friends and family visited there.   Everyone said how nice it was and came home with a nice remembrance  I'm sure riding in the motorhome was a real treat for some of her friends.   They all attended a part to remember.

Thanks for sharing.

Oh yes, I remember the days when we used our old motor home as a party mobile for kids birthday parties and even a few times as a limousine for our kids & friends to high school dances.  They loved it.
