Today is Mother’s Day.  It is right nice at present.  Uncle Fred, Aunt Mary & Henry were all up for church this morning.  After church they all went home.  So we ate early dinner and went out for a trip.  We went to Waterloo then to Foster Pond as far as the hard road was finished, then turned around and went back again.  Then we went to the East St. Louis Boy Scout Camp, they call it Camp Vandeventer, but we couldn’t drive in their gates was locked.  Mr. Shrod told us to come back some time after June 22.  Then it would be opened to drive in.  So we drove back again, and then we went to the other camp they call that the Belleville camp and also Waterloo.  The name of it is Camp Wangelin.  There was people working there.  They have a big hall and all small tents out along the woods.  It sure was a dandy place to go.  Then we drove back to Waterloo again & then home.  We were going to stop at Henry’s but they weren’t at home.  In the evening Uncle Fred and Aunt Mary came up a little early and then we played ball on the lawn.  Afterwards Mamie Eichenseer came down until it was time to go to church.  Then we all went up to church.  After church, Mrs. Meuth, Joe, Barbara, Rosie & Mamie Meuth, came down and stayed until about 10:30.  Uncle Fred and Aunt Mary were here too.  Adolph Rittemeyer didn’t have his dance last nite on account of rain so he is going to have it tonight.
