Royans, whenever possible, endeavor to "learn from their mistakes" and we were not about to arrive in 2017 less than ready for competition.
Fresh from our victory but downright exhausted from trying to keep up with the Rhodes clan, we awoke around 10am and pointed our truck toward Buford, Georgia to spend our Friday with April's Aunt Kay De and Uncle Darrel.
On the way, we noted that our kids were starting to look at little shaggy, and could really benefit from a solid hair cut. Luckily, Aunt Kay De knew just the place, and we found ourselves at the 100 year old Camp Mayfield Barber Shop in Winder, Georgia.
See that 50th Anniversary decor on the front window? Make no mistake, that's just to celebrate the 50th Workiversary of one of the dudes that works here.. the place itself was started by his father and his partner's grandfather.
Hairs freshly cut, we continued our trek to Buford.
Baking is the name of the game at Aunt Kay De's house... and she is the Queen Bee. Cookies, brownies, homemade breads. Hand-cut noodles. Fresh whipped cream. Handmade ice cream sandwiches.
We had to be rolled out of there. But not before she packed us breads and baked goods to go. We'll be sad to say goodbye to Georgia tomorrow, but we leave with so much more than we arrived... a volleyball victory and a pantry full of baked goods! On to Tennessee and Alabama!
