Sunday, August 7  - WOW…we haven't stopped running since we arrived in Canton last Thursday. We have been visiting family and friends, lunching, seeing doctors and dentists, going to reunions, shopping, etc. Marsha baked up a storm on Saturday. She made 40 loaves of Zucchini Bread. She gave lots away, but saved lots for us to freeze and enjoy this winter.

After we returned from a wonderful family reunion today, we had time to actually walk around the campground for the first time. This is a great family campground. They have tons to do for the entire family.

Catch and release pond.

Newly opened Putt Putt course.

First season for the new swimming pool.

There is a horseback riding stable. A group of 25 young girls were taking a ride on a rainy day right past our MH.

There are cabins that can be rented.

Game room.

There are several pavilions. This particular one holds the dances on Saturday night, all-you-can-eat breakfasts on Sunday morning and a ton of other activities.

When our girls were younger, they came here to toboggan. They had two shoots that went up the hill you see in the background. They no longer have the run. The hill now belongs to the landfill.


FLASHBACK – Saturday, Marsha went with her brother Rick's family to the Football Hall Of Fame Football parade. Rick's daughter, Laura, plays the drums in the band at Canton South High School. Nearly 200,000 spectators lined the 2.2 mile route to congratulate the 2011 Class of Enshrinees--Richard Dent, Marshall Faulk, Chris Hanburger, Les Richter, Ed Sabol, Deion Sanders, and Shannon Sharpe.

The parade featured about 125 entries, including floats, marching bands and balloon characters, returning Hall of Famers and the current enshrinees.

There were lots of balloons.



Tons of bands…this one is from the school our girls went to and were Paul and I taught. Jackson High School has 300 members in the marching band.

What is a parade without camels and giraffes?

Of course the clowns showed up. Lots of clowns!

Past Enshrinee, Bob Griese.

2011 Enshrinee, Deion Sanders.

Hall Of Fame Queen and Court.

It wouldn't be the HOF Parade without Frankie the Keener Weiner.

Yes, there were horses, old cars and lots of fire trucks. It was a fun morning. Marsha didn't get a picture of Laura because she was on the other side of the street…darn!

Thanks for stopping by. Hope to see ya'll back real soon. Have a great day!



  1. I still love a parade. We once owned a house was just off our suburb's parade route. Small town-type parade with scout troops walking, decorated bicycles and wagons, etc. We could sit on our deck and see the parade but it was more fun to go sit at the curb.

  2. That is a fancy rv park you are at. I know rv parks get few and far between in Ohio. See ya down the road.....

  3. Looks like a great campground. Glad you are having a good time in Canton - wish I had some of that zucchini bread!

  4. yes we are overdo for a doctor and dental visit so we need to get back to Texas sometime soon...

  5. I certainly know what you mean by running around so much. You've been awful busy baking all that zucchini bread! Hopefully, we'll meet up with you this winter and get a bite a two.

    Enjoy yourselves!

  6. A camel and a giraffe - I must admit those aren't usually in the parades I see. And what an RV park. Now that one would definitely qualify for the resort name.

  7. I had to look said 40?!? Have done my fair share of zucchini bread, but I just can't imagine 40 loaves in one day! Bet the kitchen sure smelled good!


Thanks for leaving us a comment. We enjoy reading them. Have a great day!
