Special Time with a Special Friend!

Valerie and Caroline had such a wonderful time with our dear friend, Carolyn, last Friday.
She blesses them with a "girls day out" a couple times a year, and this time she took them to a Lilac Garden not too far away from us.  (Victoria was blessed to be a traveling buddy for Lydia as she went to Tacoma for a doctor's appointment.)  They always start their day at a local coffee shop owned by a  Christian, large, talented, homeschooling family.  : -)  Then, they enjoyed the beautiful garden and a delightful lunch together.

Thank you, Carolyn, for snapping these photos for us!  

 They still have the historic residence there of Hulda Klager, the "lilac lady." (1864-1960)
Caroline was blessed to be able to play her piano! : -)


Thank you so much, Carolyn,
for this very, very special time with you!!!
You are such a blessing to us all!!!!

Fun with Fantastic Friends!!!!

We were soooo very blessed to have several friends come out to visit us this weekend!
We had soooooo much fun!!!! : -)
Thank you, dear friends!!!!!

 Just a few of the volleyball players with their serious volleyball faces on!
 But it's hard to be serious for long with this fun-loving bunch! 


Here we're playing "Wink, Wink Murder."  Yes, that is what it is called . . .
but we decided to rename it "Elimination" : -)
 This is what 15 passenger vans are for . . .
filling them up!!!! : -)
 Okay . .. so those of you who have been around our blog for awhile,
you've maybe seen these kind of pictures before. . .
 It's become our first-time-visitors-tradition!!!
(Well, actually, we like to play Reverse Charades anytime with friends and family!!!!)
 Sometimes our guests are unsure about it . . .
even resist it at first!
 But inevitably, once the game begins,
the room fills with laughter,
and everyone gets in to it!!!

 And I think everyone enjoys it!
 Can anyone guess what we're acting out in all of these pictures? 
 "Love you, Man!"


 This one has to do with the name of a "duck"  of sorts . . .
 His initials are DT and he is in the news a lot lately . . .

More volleyball!
They played quite a bit over the weekend!

We also went bowling on Saturday!
That was very fun! 
(I was so bummed that I failed to check my camera battery again before we left!
It died just a few minutes into my picture taking at the bowling alley, so I was only able to take these first few photos!)
 Oops . . .sorry Victoria. . .
didn't mean to add this one . . .hee, hee!

This one is better!

Thank you precious friends for the wonderful weekend with you!
We are sooo grateful for your fun friendship and fellowship!
