Last Florida post

I'm closing with just a few random pictures of our time in Florida.  It was such a sweet time of fellowship.  Only God could have orchestrated our families meeting like we did.  To think that we have known each other for such a short time and yet felt comfortable spending a week together.  And it was such a fun week!  The McDonalds are very gracious hosts and made us all feel so comfortable and relaxed in their home.  Just today one of my boys said that he thought this was probably going to be the best week of the year!

We spent time just hanging out and playing games together.  (Some played games late into the night too!)
Time for electronics ... together.
Or being together while doing your own thing too.
Grandma was such fun to be around.  You can see that Eliana made a friend!
Thank you Grandma for the wonderful dinners you treated us all to as well!
We had fun playing inside.
And out.
Working puzzles.  (This is everyone who contributed to either or both of the puzzles.)
And the backyard.  What a delightful place to play!!!  Eliana loved the trampoline!
Joshua on the zipline.
Which is attached to this really cool fort.

We set up our slack line there.
A fun swing (and I love this angle).
And just boys ... chasing and fighting and running and having a blast!
Joe and Christopher battling it out.
The week went by too quickly and we were sad to have it end!  We are definitely hoping that we can all get together again soon and  spend time together.
Thank you McDonalds for an amazingly fun week!  We thank God for your family often and for the sweet ways that He has connected our families.  We are looking forward to y'all coming up for a visit this summer!

With love
Leslie for the Nelsens
