Uncle Paul being "fun guy" on the tramp
The Gaggle of Giggly Girls.
They all slept in one room in a nest on the floor. Oh Fun!

Hudson attempted to mow the yard with the help of Weston and Calvin. I say attempted because he drove the entire yard with the blade Up. Nothing was cut. I guess it was his practice run. Nice effort!!
Ring around the Rosies
Not sure what this is called but we all put them on our noses for dinner and had lots of giggling
Elaine and I came home from the conference and the children were in the process of making pretzels. Let me just say, "They were incredible!"
Lots of games were played
Maggie and Grace
These two boys were inseparable and did lots of exploring.
They are quite the pair

Ready for church
The drive home
Sign of a fun weekend
Elaine and I had been talking about us coming out for quite some time. When I miscarried Jeremiah 2 weeks before I was to leave, things were questionable. My leg had some superficial blod clots - nothing serious just painful. They healed a couple days before departure day and I felt like I could do the trip. (6 hr drive) I am so glad we did. I was truly blessed! I was blessed by my brothers family! And I was blessed by their friends. Most of them knew what had happened with Jermiah. I got many hugs, listening ears and words of encouragement! Thank you Angie, Laura, Jamie, Beka, Shannon, and the many others!!! You are all precious!
Thank you Paul, Elaine and family!!
Great Time ~ Great Memories
