#33 but # 1 in our hearts

We packed up our rig and moved to a campground close to Don and Jeanne's then left to visit our nephew and niece Tim and Lisa near Tampa. This is our second time to their home on the trip and it is always nice to be here. Tim is Shirley's sister Bonnie's son. Their daughter Payton is a big time softball player and I have had great interest in her development over the years. They go all over the country playing and participating in camps and it shows in how good she is. Her 13 and 1, first place high school fast pitch softball team played an away game last night and we all went. Payton starts at 3rd base as a sophomore. It was an exciting game and the good girls won 6-4. Family note: Payton is the same relation to us as is Bobby Strachan our nephew and niece Bob and Theresa's son. He is a big time baseball player. While they probably will never meet, they both share the same passion and excellence. It is awesome to be the proud uncle. We did miss seing Marcus (Payton's brother) who is off at college at the the Univerisy of Florida (Gators). We came back to the house and chatted a while before hitting the sack. This was just the 14th night of our trip where we did not sleep in our camper (that in 380 days). Heading back to Davenport after the traffic clears and I think the campground pool is calling me. Don and Jeanne are working today. Enjoy the pics.
