The last week of the month Gil and I took the granddaughters to Lake DeGray near Arkadelphia for a few days of swimming and camping. This was DJ's first time to camp in the motorhome and her first time to swim in a lake. She had a floating ring with a seat and back rest that she used each day in the lake, morning and afternoon. Suzanne and she had a really good time with Grandpa every day swimming and playing in the water which was refreshing on a hot day. I went in one morning with them as well and enjoyed the cool lake waters. It really was a great get-away for us.
On the last Saturday of June Gil and Suzanne went on the motorcycle to the Purple Hull Pea Festival in Emmerson, AR, with the Charity Riders CMA chapter. This was their June fun ride. Gil said they had a good time, a very nice cool ride to Emerson and a great lunch of purple hull peas, cornbread, peach cobbler and ice tea. It was a very hot afternoon so they returned to Camden fairly early. As road captain of the Charily Riders, Gil has planned the July fun ride for a ride to Lake DeGray and a picnic at the Caddo Bend picnic/swimming area that we visited last week.
