A Hot But Fun Day At Hershey Preserve!

Ken and I were up at 7:30 and got ready to play pickleball with Chuck and Melissa!  They called and said they might be a little late because they decided to move to the site right below them for better satellite reception.  So, we changed our meeting time till 9:00 so they wouldn't feel rushed.

While we were outside eating a light breakfast, when Eddie Paparo from our small group at church, stopped by.  He and Lori arrived here yesterday and will be heading home tomorrow.  We had a nice little visit and Chuck and Melissa got to meet him when they came by to go to the pickleball courts.

We actually played pickleball from 9:15 till about 11:30 and it was hot. Fortunately there was a bit of a breeze.  Denise and Holly came to play so we did have time to sit out and then 2 newbies arrived and wanted some help to understand the scoring.  It was a father and son and they do well for just beginning to play the game.

We planned to go to Green Dragon and some roadside stands in the Ephrata area, but we had a message from Neil and Nancy Savage that they would like to visit with the 4 of us and would we be around if they stopped at Hershey to swim with their 2 year old granddaughter around 3:00.  So after talking to Chuck and Melissa I called her back and said we would love for them to come to Hershey Preserve.  Chuck, Melissa, Ken and I went to the Wal-Mart in Palmyra and a local produce stand and returned to the CG at 2:45.  Nancy had called and said they would only get here around 3:30, so I worked on the blog before we headed to the pool. 

The 4 of us were waiting there for Neil, Nancy, and Olivia. We had about a 1 1/2 hour visit while cooling off in the pool.  The 6 of us hadn't seen each other since Florida, so it was so good to all be together again.

Nancy, Neil, and Olivia who will be 2 in October!

What a cutie!

The ladies seem to be having a serious discussion!

Olivia certainly loves her Grandpa and Grandma!

Back to Waldo for another quick shower and then it was time to start dinner. Ken grilled salmon and chicken and we had salads and corn on the cob.  Good dinner.  At 7:15 the 4 of us got together in Waldo for some card playing.  We each won a game of pinochle, but the men won Skip-Bo.  I don't know why Melissa and I ever play that game with them.  We never seem to win!

They left around 10:15 and Ken and I went right to bed.  It was another fun, hot day!
