Luau – Baseball Game

(Avon Park, FL)  Hi 80 Lo 59 -- Saturday,  we had a Hawaiian luau at the clubhouse. They brought in two pigs and slow cooked them in the back lot. The smell was all over the park and we couldn’t wait for dinner that evening. (Click on pictures to enlarge)

Along with a good helping of pulled pork we had a skewer of veggies, and seasoned rice. For dessert we had a cup of banana pudding with a small umbrella.

Sunday we went to church and hung around home all day, and we also watched the NASCAR race. The race was in Arizona so it wasn’t till later in the day.

On Monday Jim picked up Judy's Jim and they went to Lakeland to watch the St. Louis Cardinals play the Detroit Tigers in a spring triaining baseball game. It was sunny and 80 degrees, and they had a great time.

This morning I went to hand bell choir practice at the church, then stopped to pick up some groceries so we have food on hand for our trip to Ft Lauderdale tomorrow. We’re getting everything stowed and secured for the trip. We'll be gone for five days.

See you in three days.
