Ken and I were up at 6:30, cooked breakfast, cleaned up and visited with Chuck and Melissa from 8 to 8:25. Good to be talking with them again. We have been so busy that we really haven't crossed paths very much since arriving in Hershey. They also spent time enjoying some of their favorite places in Lancaster County - Eli's Roadside Market, Bird-in-Hand Bake Shop, Costco, Wal-Mart, Kohl's, etc.
Ken and I left the CG and drove to Masonic Homes to spend the morning playing cards with my parents. Both of them are doing so well. We played 2 games of Pinochle with the men winning the 1st game and the women the 2nd. It was fun! Then we joined them for lunch in their newly remodeled Dining Room, with them treating Ken and I for our upcoming wedding anniversary! It was nice to be able to spend some quality time with them.
From there Ken and I went back to the CG for about an hour to do more "prep work" for our departure tomorrow morning. By 2:30 we were on our way to visit Lanie and her family about an hour away in Morgantown. We walked with Lanie and Katelyn to the bus stop to greet Samantha. So good to see all of them again. Back at their house we played with the girls, chatted with Lanie, and spent some time outside. Bob was home from work right after 5, he only works about 5 minutes from their house, and we had more time to visit. Lanie made delicious fajitas for dinner and by 7 we were driving back to the CG. It has certainly been a busy, but special day.
I talked to Cindy most of the drive and they are having a great time at Jekyll Island, finding so many sand dollars! They really enjoy the beach, hiking paths, and bike riding on Jekyll.
Ken and I were back to the CG around 7:45 and after some cleaning and more prep work for tomorrow, we were at Chuck and Melissa's from 8:30 to 10 "catching up" on the last few days and then playing a game of Skip-Bo with the women being victorious. We had a good time!
Can't believe we are heading to VA tomorrow morning. Our time at Hershey has positively "flown by". It was so nice to reconnect with our family, even though it was rather hectic. We will need a "vacation" when we get to Virginia!
