Weekend Catch-Up

The past few days have been pretty uneventful. We remain in Goshen, Indiana for the time being. I feel much better following the kidney stone issue. Hopefully, the doctor will wrap everything up Tuesday.

 Happy 60th Anniversary
Richard and Norma!!

Robin's parents have achieved a remarkable milestone.  Today they celebrate 60 years of marriage.  Wow!  I hope we get a chance to experience the same thing someday.  We love you guys.

Sunday was movie marathon day / night. We watched three movies:
     Battle Los Angeles - Pretty good Sci-Fi with a lot of military action.
     The Little Fokkers - Lots of fun and laughs.
     Mao's Last Dancer - VERY good. We highly recommend it.

There were a lot of fireworks throughout the evening. Seems the majority of folks were celebrating the 4th of July a bit early.

**  Happy 4th of July!  **

Another quiet day. We slept in. Robin fixed breakfast and we hung around most of the morning.  We did take a short bike ride around the fairgrounds where we are staying. We couldn't stay away from the bikes any longer.

Robin found her dream tent. I guess as long as she carries it on her bike I won't protest...

The fairgrounds are pretty empty.  Kind of the calm before the storm.  The Elkhart County 4H Fair is one of the top three 4H fairs in the country.  Over 300,000 people attend.  They are setting things up for it to begin on July 22.  Hard to believe this will be jam packed with RVs and people in a couple weeks:

It is amazing how fast a day goes by.  We spent a bit of time reading RV and bicycle tour blogs and catching up on emails.  The stories of people on the road right now make us anxious to get out there too.  In the meantime, we are enjoying our little slice of heaven:

The revelers are beginning to repeat last night's festivities.  I think it's going to be pretty loud around here.  We enjoy the fireworks and knowing that everyone is celebrating the greatest country in the world!!

Until Later......
