A Full Day!
We left at 10:00 a.m. to head to Lake Loramie State Park to join friends, Mel and Janice for lunch. They are camped there in their new Jayco trailer for four days just trying it out to be sure everything works. Lake Loramie is north of Dayton, Ohio about 45 minutes near the town of Fort Loramie. We arrived around noon and Mel and Janice announced that they were taking us out for lunch in a little town called New Bremen. First we had a tour of their trailer and then we took two vehicles as we had brought Bib with us and couldn’t just leave him in the truck at the campsite and didn’t want to take the chance of leaving him in their new trailer so we headed to a really nice restaurant called, The Grille in New Bremen. New Bremen is a very clean, pretty little town and after our tasty lunch we walked around a bit and took some photos. There’s not much in the downtown anymore. Most of the shops are empty. By the time we finished lunch and our walkabout it was 3:00 p.m. so we headed south to Dayton to see our Dayton grandchildren. Our youngest grandchild, Lillian will be a year old next week and we had not seen her yet.
We arrived there around 5:00 p.m. after stopping to take some photos here and there on our way back on SR66 to Piqua then picking up I-75 out of Piqua. Caden was asleep so we got about ½ hour getting to know Lillian. What a cutie! She has bright blue eyes and strawberry blonde hair and was a little shy at first but after about 10 minutes, warmed up to both of us.
Caden then woke up and we all went outside for a while. Caden has grown very tall. He has very long legs and is talking a blue streak.
Not long after Caden woke up we had to leave as it was over an hour to get home and Bib didn’t want to eat in the truck and besides we had had a very long day. It was nice to spend time with Tracy and the family.
We’re looking forward to getting everyone together at Michelle and Eric’s on Saturday.
