a visit in ohio

We have been out of town at a few meetings, 
and had the opportunity to stay with some friends in Ohio.
They have children our childrens ages,
some very, very close! 
The children call them Uncle Tim and Aunt Sandi
and I won't bother telling them different.
One of the first things I did was take a walk, yep, in the snow.
I some places it was up to my knees still!!!
But, I love going for walks, and I really enjoyed it.
I found something on my walk.
Tracks; deer, coon, birds, turkey......
Tracking down south is a bit different...
We all went bowling. 
Some of the children had higher scores than me!!
I told them I needed bumpers.
Here the boys are making sure nothing gets wasted out of the nachos!
Angel and Hunter are only one day apart. 
With so many of us playing, 12 to be exact, 
most of the time we spent waiting.
But we all had a good time.
Sandi curled Paige's hair one day.
And mine, which was a job, because my hair is very thick.
I liked it, and Nick did too, thanks Sandi.
This is what happens when you turn boys out to play!!
Then the temperatures got up into the upper 50's and lower 60's, 
and the snow melted. That left.............MUD!!!!!
We all had a great time playing out, even if it was super muddy. 
This is what is left of the new socks after the snow melted???
I'm not sure if it's best to throw 'em out 
and start over, or try to wash 'em.
Larky and Stonewall were playing basketball. 
No, Stonewall isn't picking, only scratching.
Summer and Paige had a great time thinking up ways to irritate Aaron,
aside from teaching Stonewall that he likes Summer best!!!
Aaron lets Stonewall play games on his I-phone, 
so while Aaron wasn't paying attention,
Stonewall learned how to text and call Summer.
Pretty good for a four year old.
Levi and Jewel hangin' out.
Callandre and Hunter playing.
We had a fun week playing and getting to spend the time together.



  1. FUN! I remember what great times we had with friends while traveling on deputation. Glad you all are having a fun time too!!!

  2. Those clothes are what we're headed for this next couple of weeks. It's FINALLY getting in the 40's here!!! This is the time where people think I have a mineral defficiancy and look at me with a side ways look, because I like to say..."OHHHHH, don't you just wanna EAT DIRT!!!???"..."Well Ms. Elsie, Uh NO, I don't have feelings like that." Hmmph, they have to be lying!!! How can you go through 6 MONTHS of nothing but snow, and now that we can see patches of dirt, and not FEEL like you want to eat it!!?? Oh well. You all look like you're having fun. How's your support? Almost there? Are ya'll going to make it back for the wedding? I don't know if we'll make it. We're waiting for taxes to come back :( I love ya'll. Later.

  3. The tracks in the snow are amazing. We only have mud here... snow would definitely be much prettier!

    Friends are such a blessing. And it's extra nice when the kids match up in age with your own.
