Birthday Party

We celebrated birthdays all weekend! Dan's was Saturday and Morgan & Gracey had their party today at the park. Such fun! Gracey has always wanted to play the violin and today her dream got a start. Mom & Dad provided the violin (rented) and Aunt Crystal will give her free lessons! What a lucky girl! Morgan was just as happy with his Star Wars toys though!

Backyard Camping

Ah, the great outdoors! Even if it's just in your backyard, there's an excitement for kids (and the adult "kids") when you are in a tent! It was a good time to check out everything for the fall hunting season as well as provide good memories for the grandkids! Gracey won the prize for sleeping the longest! The boys were all up early to enjoy the campfire (in the fire pit)! Randy and Pa were up early to cook breakfast. I think they were enjoying the camping as much as kids!

Old friends and new

I reconnected with some old (I mean old in the sense of previous) college friends today and met a couple of new friends too. Even though we live in different states, every July during this time when our church denominations have their annual conferences, we try to get together. It's wonderful to catch up and hear how God is working in everyone's lives. One friend just came through brain surgery this summer, another will be going to central Asia soon! Of course, we also got a chance to see pictures of kids and grandkids!

It's not so bad getting older....(and I mean older knowing these friendships were begun in the the early 70's)!
