Emi's Birthday and a visit with Harold and family.

Tuesday we left Indian Springs State Park and traveled to Warner Robbins to celebrate Emi's birthday and spend the night.  Tricia prepared delicious homemade stromboli for dinner and an awesome birthday cake for Emi's special day. Everything was delicious.  Thanks Tricia for a wonderful dinner.  We enjoyed being there to celebrate with all of you.

Fred and Jack played with the ball until they punched hole in it. 

Wednesday we left cousin Tricia's and traveled on to John's brother Harold's house.  It has been almost two years since we visited them.  Of course we played 10 Penny and had lots of laughs.  It was so good to see them all again.  Thanks Harold and Sandie for the hospitality.  I finally remembered to take a few pictures.

John and I rode with Sandie on a few errands.  We rode through the base and I was able to get pictures of the USS New York, a 5th San Antonio-Class Amphibious Transport Dock.  It is notable for using a symbolic amount of steel salvaged from the World Trade Center after it was destroyed in the September 11 attacks.

Yesterday morning we had breakfast at Harold and Sandie's favorite place, The Home Plate.  We were joined by friends Bill and Loretta who are also fulltimers.

The Home Plate is very even has it's own set of rules. LOL  The owner/cook is very entertaining.

After breakfast it was time for us to make our way back to GA.  The trip was uneventful and we made it back to Indian Springs State Park by 2:30 p.m.   We were busy the rest of the day with park chores. 

Laugh everyday.  Happy trails.  Stay safe.
