Friday morning I sat on the front porch with a cup of coffee, my Mom and Dad and sister.....what a great way to start a day! :)
This is the view from the porch.....
the bluebirds were coming in and out of the birdhouse on the left. There were a few babies in there!
One of the water lilies opened up!
One of Dad's creations..
Mom, Chris and I went to Horning's Market to stock up on some good things, Chris and I can't buy in the south! :) Dieffenbachs Potato Chips, Meunster Cheese and Lebanon Bologna. Oh, and they had bags of STARBUCKS coffee for only $2!!!! Wish I had bought more....
Later in the morning, Dad took us to see his latest job he is working at. Helping a taxidermist finish his new display room.
(They had just got done sanding the concrete floor.....excuse all the little spots! :P )
Showing us a real elephant ear, with an elephant painted on it! :)
The entrance to the new part....very nice!!
Mom hadn't gone with us, and when we got home, she was rearranging the living room. Dad stepped in and helped her! :)
More relaxing and visiting on the front porch! Even though this isn't the house I grew up in, it didn't take long for it to feel like "home" after Mom and Dad moved in....convincing me even more that it's the people that make it "home"!! :)
Phil and Gina brought supper that evening.
Addison was a little shy. It took her a little to be brave enough to show me her doll. She is so cute!! :)
Koltin loves books. He just turned 6 and will be reading before long!!
Baby Kinza~ She is such a happy little girl!
~Adoring big sister, Adorable little sister~
Supper time....there was no lack of yummy food all weekend!! :)
(some of the kids were eating in the basement)
Gina reading in spoonerism to her kids! :)
I admire her....she is a true Proverbs 31 woman!!
Ashton wasn't much into listening to the story....he was having more fun running back and forth from the kitchen to the living room! :)
Another picture of cute lil Kinza Jo!!
A few more of my siblings and their families came over that evening to visit, too. Tamara went home with the Noeckers to spend the night and the next day with her cousins Whitney and Miranda.
More to come~
