Old Friends and New Friends…and more rain!

It’s amazing how many friends we have in the state of Texas.  Sadly, we aren’t able to see all of them, yet we were fortunate to have a meal and visit with two families in the Dallas area.

William grew up with Ebony in Massillon, Ohio and hadn’t seen each other in about 16 years.  It was great to meet them for breakfast, meet her husband for the first time, and for them to meet our children (Ebony met Madison when she was a newborn).

Somehow, though none of us are really sure how, we connected with a family on Facebook a couple years ago, Dan and Emily Crutchfield. We have really enjoyed our social media relationship with them. They were welcoming enough to have us come over to their home and they cooked a fantastic Greek meal for us as we visited with them for a few hours.

(In all of our fun, though, we forgot to take a picture!)

The rain seems like it’s been following us since we left. We’ve driven in it and  many of our campsites have had some big puddles around it. At least our sites have been private, spacious, and beautiful, including this latest one.

We got a little reprieve from the rain to explore downtown Dallas…

…as well as picking up two additional Harley Davidson poker chips…

…and making our daily grocery trip.

The weather report is looking sunny and warmer over the next few days and we’re looking forward to it!
