June 16, Saturday, we were up early to go to graduation at 8 am. Since Maddi and Anthony were both graduating but at different schools at the same time we divided up. Todd, Tom, Gabi and I attended Maddi's graduation while Beth, Parker and Beth's family attended Anthony's. The ceremonies lasted about 2 hours and were held in outdoor stadiums. Our Maddi graduated with honors and we are so proud of her accomplishments.
It was a bright sunny day so it was getting fairly warm until the end. Returning back to Todd and Beth's a party was organized.
Maddi came over later in the afternoon with her boyfriend and another couple.
June 17, Sunday, Father's Day, Tom enjoyed the day celebrating this day with his son and grandchildren. Maddi again came over for the afternoon. Todd cooked steaks on the grill and along with left overs from the party we enjoyed a nice meal.
June 18, Monday, we packed up and got underway by 9:30 am heading to Gettysburg, Pa. We arrived at Artillery Ridge Campground a little after 12:30 pm. We would be here for the next 7 days. After going to our favorite Mexican restaurant in Gettysburg, Montezuma, we spent the rest of the afternoon catching our breath so to speak.
Tuesday, 19th, we visited my soon to be 89 year old aunt, Dotty Frock, in Westminster. Had a nice visit and catching up on Little family news.
Aunt Dotty's son, Myron, stopped in on his way home which was a bonus. Myron had been our ring bearer in our wedding.
Wednesday, 20th, Ellen and Ed Crutchley, friends for many years ( Ed and Tom were in the Navy together, Ellen and I were in nursing school together) met at Shamrock Restaurant in Thurmont for lunch and visiting. Nice lunch of soft shelled crabs and wonderful visit.
Thursday, 21st, we drove to Hollabaugh's orchard and produce store to pick up a few items. We then stopped at the Gettysburg Outlets to browse around. In the evening we went to Rube's in Emmitsburg for hard shelled crabs and were they ever good. Florida just doesn't do crabs like up in Maryland.
Today, Friday, 22nd, we met Larry, my brother, and Joanne at the Dobbin house for a late lunch. Another nice visit catching up. It has been rainy and cool all day with temps in the 60's
