34th Anniversary and a little rain.

Friday, October 10th was our 34th wedding anniversary.  Our favorite Italian restaurant, Luigi's, was just a few miles up the road in Fort Leavenworth, KS so our plan was to eat there to celebrate.  Unfortunately the restaurant is closed due to an upcoming move.  They are remodeling a new place right up the street from the original location. Well, that really sucked.  We ended up staying home and cooking our own meal.   After dinner we drove over to the festival grounds in Weston to check in with the volunteer coordinator.

Saturday morning arrives and we are up early as we are scheduled to be at the Weston Irish Festival at 9:00 a.m.  It was 43 degrees.  Oh no ....I was not liking that.  We dressed in layers because, not only was it cold it was overcast and damp from all the rain the night before.   Lucky for us the sun came out, warmed up and it was a beautiful day to be outside. We worked with a very lively group from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. then were free to enjoy the festival.  There was lots of music, food, people and, of course, beer.

The nice weather didn't stick around for long.  Sunday morning we woke up to overcast skies and a light mist.  John checked the forecast and it showed heavy rains coming our way on Monday.  We decided to leave Weston on Sunday instead of Monday to avoid driving in all the ucky weather.   We arrived at Treasure Lake in Branson around 4:00 p.m. Sunday afternoon and were able to get a site in our favorite area.   After getting settled in John checked his email and noticed friends Steve and Jannel were also at Treasure Lake.  Of course we couldn't resist stopping by for a visit.  It was good to see them again. 

Today we met friends Sam and Donna for lunch a Mel's Hard Luck Diner.   This was our first time to eat here.  The wait staff take turns walking around in the diner singing.   Some very talented young people.

Afterwards we went back to our place.  Fred enjoyed all the attention.

It was so good to see them again and catch up.  

Laugh everyday.  Happy trails.  Stay safe.
