Friday night we met up with Dan's parents in Marianna, FL. They were visiting Dan's uncle in GA and we met and ate supper at Pizza Hut to celebrate Tamara's upcoming birthday.
That was the WORST service we ever had at the Pizza Hut there!! :O We waited almost an hour for our food. It was fuller than I ever saw, but I wonder if they were understaffed or had tons of takeout....or it was our waitress, because others who came in after us got their food before we did. It was good though and we got to spend more time visiting.
After we got home Grandma gave us the gifts Pete & Esther sent down.
Tamara got a set of 2 shadow boxes to paint and decorate.
Danny got a deer call.....he was thrilled!!! :)
I didn't get a picture of Dan, but he got more fishing gear!! :)
Saturday night our church family had our yearly party at the church. The older ladies played Scrabble, the younger men and ladies had 2 games of Rook going and the kids played around the fire outside! :)
By 11 PM, most everyone had went home, so we invited those who were still there to come to our house.
Austin and Dan both had some firecrackers to put off. :)
The next pics look strange because of all the smoke in the air! :P
Lighting bottle rockets.
Samuel lighting a sparkler for Susan.
It was so good to see Sam while he was home from Teen Missions College!
Beth thrilled with her sparkler! :)
And sad it went out!
I tried to take a pic of them all while her sparkler was still lit, but it wouldn't flash and they got too dark. When I finally got a decent one, her sparkler went out! :P
After making lots of noise at midnight, they all came in and we finished another game of Rook! :) And drank coffee....made by Sam. :)
By the way, Dan's parents and Ruth were also there, I just didn't get them on any pics! :(
Monday morning Dan's parents were getting ready to leave. Sparky could sense they were going home and he could hardly contain his excitement! :)
It won't be too long till these kids are taller than their Grandparents!
One last pic with Sparky!
I was going to load more pics from Tamara's birthday but I might wait till later....or tomorrow. The guys are watching a basketball game on Dan's laptop and when I upload pics it slows their connection! :P Oops! They were very patient with me, though! :)
