Weekend away

 

About 2 wks. ago, we headed down to Maryland to see some friends of ours, and visit our outreach church. We really enjoyed it, except for the driving with our children. I’m being honest here :). Thought I’d share a few highlights of our trip.20140718_182029Not much relaxing and eating with this girl! Some trips outside. Sigh πŸ˜‰20140718_182156Dale trying to occupy little lady. It may have lasted a minute πŸ™‚20140718_181727 20140718_183102Some pics from supper at Lonestar. I’ m getting hungry looking at my food again πŸ™‚20140719_080329 This is how bad a bathroom can look πŸ™‚20140719_084255A quick pic at our motel in Dover. Friendly staff there!misc, maryland trip 041_edited-1 They enjoyed the motel pool, even if it was 8:00 at night πŸ™‚ I’m pretty sure everyone knew when we came and when we left πŸ˜‰ This is the 1st time we took our family to a motel ( we are dairy farmers ;)). Anyways, our children acted like it was their 1st time too. We tried to keep them calm and quiet, but that wasn’t too successful. They were tired and excited, so combine the two, and you know how that works πŸ™‚misc, maryland trip 054_edited-1I love this one of Jenna!

We made a quick stop to see their place before heading home. They have such a neat home!20140720_171148The ride home was much more pleasant due to extremely tired children πŸ™‚

Our weekend went too fast, but there is no place in the world like home! Even if that means heading out to milk those cows πŸ™‚

      How nice! I’m sure your family will love having you visit! If you come to the church picnic, you won’t see us. We can’t make it πŸ™‚
