Fun visit

Our nephew came up to visit for a couple of days earlier this week.  It was so much fun to have him here!  All of us enjoyed hanging out with him.  (I hope you'll come back soon  Brad!!!)

The reason he came up was to deliver a table.  Our kitchen table has been a little tight for our family (it seats 6).  I mentioned to my sister while we were at the beach that we really needed to get a new kitchen table.  One of my sister's neighbors was getting rid of one that she thought would be perfect for us.  They gave us a table!  What a sweet blessing for all of us!  It is soooo nice to FIT comfortably around the table.  :-)  Thank you!

I also received another gift.  A pair of shoes.  They are cute and comfortable and they FIT!  I have had a hard time finding shoes because I have narrow feet (which it doesn't appear that I've passed on to anyone!).  Only a couple of stores locally carry anything that fits me (with a very small selection and high prices).  Having a new pair of shoes was an unexpected treat from my sweet generous sister.  It is something I wouldn't have done for myself.  Thank you Laura!

More to our visit.  The boys had been eagerly looking forward to playing airsoft.  It was hot and yet the desire to be camoflauged trumped over comfort (it was very, very hot).  They had a lot of fun together.

We headed to a local fun park for a birthday party.  The little boys were thrilled to ride in Brad's truck!

We hated to see him leave.

Hopefully we'll see him again soon!  As always, I have much to be thankful for!  I'm thankful for family - I've been blessed with a wonderful family that I love spending time with!  I'm thankful for the generousity of others.  I'm thankful for a God who hears my desires - and surprises me in ways I don't expect. 




  1. I just love the pics that went with this posting. It looks like you all had such a fun time, and the shoes are so cute, too! I never go shopping for shoes either, and when I do it's "sensible" shoes. Have a wonderful weekend! I'd say to find some time to relax, but with that many kids and that much energy around you, it might be a bit much to ask for. :)

  2. SO sweet! Looks like you had a nice visit!

  3. What fun and what blessings.

  4. Definitely looks like all had a great time! Wow, those shoes look super comfortable, too. Congrats!


  5. What wonderful blessings! I love the way God surprises us.


I love hearing from friends!!! Thank you for taking time to leave a comment!
