Day Five of Our US Adventure: Teen One Makes A New Friend!



 
Today was all about visiting friends again.
Having spent six months living here, we managed to make rather a lot of friends and visiting them all is our number one priority...and to be honest...its the prime reason for our regular visits back.
The friends we met up with today love this "Dairy Store" which has remained unchanged since it opened many years ago.
It has the same "retro style" and for us is like living in a scene of "Happy Days!"
The food is good, I chose clam chowder, followed by a small butter pecan ice cream sundae.
They are renowned for their "Cheese furters" which are hot dogs with a slice of fried cheese!
 
 
It was then time to hit the shops again.
First a craft store ( heaven!) then a local Mall.
We had a lovely surprise when we bumped into our friends daughter in law and granddaughter.
Little Sweetheart had fallen in love with Teen One earlier in the day and was delighted to have this chance meeting.
 
 
 
The two of them headed over to a play area in the Mall and they became inseparable.
We had to say our goodbyes eventually and Little Sweetheart was sad to be leaving her new friend....
 
 
 
...however it wasn't for long. After a little nap, she came back to our friends house with her parents, for us all to enjoy a delicious meal together.
The couple spent the evening playing ball, reading books and generally having a good time.
 
 
 
Washing up is never a chore in this home....this is the view from the kitchen window!
 
 
 
 
 
I love this new addition to their dining room!
 
 
 
 
 
 
I forgot to show you yesterday all of our purchase...Teen One already has a large Bloom Bible, and when we saw these small versions, half price, we couldn't resist one.

 
Neither could we resist this beautiful t shirt with the opening lines to the hymn
"Amazing Grace"
 
Our days are full of treats and renewed friendship...as well as making new friends...
we feel truly blessed.

Today's Psalm:
   O taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him.
