Friends, Family, and Fun with Grandpa

Well last weekend was fun and exhausting. Aunt A and Uncle J came down from NJ. The rest of the family came on either Saturday or Sunday. Bill, Will, Laura Ann and I got a special treat Friday night. Our dear friends had a backyard barbeque welcoming us for our visit. We lived near Bill's parents for almost two years and made these precious friends while we were there. The kids had fun on the slip and slide and the adults caught up when not protecting our little ones from tiki torches or wiping spilled drinks or food. My friend JJ had tea spilled on her foot, I think a plate spilled on her foot, possibly another plate on her clothes?, and then she sat in her cake that she didn't get to eat before she had to leave, oh life with little kids in tow, (At least one of the spills was due to my 7 month old kicking my plate over) It was a delightful time. These are wonderful families striving to live as becomes followers of Christ daily. I love you all!!
Uncle J always serenades me with Misty on the trumpet. It never fails to make me blush! I don't blush easily. Aunt A always starts a debate. I stayed out of that one!! I could tell that the folks from NJ really enjoyed Will and Laura Ann. We all enjoyed our long distance family.
Fun with Grandpa
Will played in the pool with Daddy, Pa, and Aunt A. He had the best time. I love to see Will with his Pa. Fun time without the distractions of projects and chores are priceless times. Chore times can be fun too, Will held his cucumber picked from Pa's garden all of the way home. (He forgot to pack some toys!) Well Larry the cucumber (as he called him) would have to do until we gobbled him up Monday night YUM!!
I'm a few days behind, next post I'll update you on this week: VBS.....
