Uneventful day turned busy

When we woke up this morning, we didn't have much planned for the day.  Gary needed to get a haircut, and I needed to do a load or two of laundry so all Gary's clothes were clean.  He left tonight at 9:00 for Texas with the Mark Trammell Quartet.  They will be gone until Monday.  We were going to eat supper early so Gary could take a nap this evening before driving all night.  But that was all we had planned for the day....a nice quiet day.  Within a few minutes of getting up this morning, Gary had a call from Eric Phillips (tenor for MTQ).  They made plans to meet this afternoon at a great place for kids...

 The two pictures above are of 4 different moonwalks.  They were all inside an air-conditioned building (which is a wonderful thing down here in humid Alabama!!).  Our girls bounced and played hide-and-seek for a couple of hours with Eric's kids.  They had a great time!!  The place provided one snack and drink.  It was a fun and different way to spend an afternoon.

Before we went to the moonwalk place, Gary & Meagan went to Pat Barker's (bass for MTQ) to see if they could help him get his car running.  After replacing a blown fuse,  the car is running again.  It still needs a little electrical work at a mechanic's shop, but Pat was able to meet the bus tonight to leave for Texas.    It wasn't until after fixing Pat's car and meeting Eric at the moonwalk place that Gary was able to get his haircut, but he squeezed that in.

While we were eating an early supper, we received an invitation to attend church with Pat & Kesha Barker.  They were having Water Fun Night at their church.  The pastor's message was very good, and the kids enjoyed playing on two water slides (one of them is pictured below).
Since the girls were already wet when we came back to the campground, they jumped in the pool here until it closed for the evening.  So much for our quiet, uneventful day!!
