With much anticipation we look forward to when we can get together with the Uncle Gordon, Aunt Mae, and their eight children. Our families just love being together and have SO much in common! Monday (5/23/11) we went over there and spent the day, the night, and a good part of Tuesday. Here are some of the pictures of our time over there…
We enjoyed working in the kitchen together. It makes it ten times funner when it’s other people besides you working in the kitchen and you’re all working together and having a great time! Here Aunt Mae is decorating Michael’s birthday cake. It was his birthday the day we came over!
There were three very eager little people sitting at the table waiting for dinner. The cake was the center piece. Isn’t it cute?
Andrew and Nathan thoroughly enjoying their dinner. After dinner, there was a tornado watch and warning so we had to go down to the basement for a while. We had Michael’s birthday party down there. After around an hour, the severe weather had passed and we were able to come back up and have devotions in the living room. We’re thankful for the Lord’s mercy during that storm!
The tree swing is loads of fun!!! We all took turns pushing each other on it. The time we spend at their house always include lots of outdoor fun! [something I greatly enjoy, by the way…]
Lydia and William
Fishin'… the bummer is that they have to throw all fish accept the catfish back! [frown] I guess the nieghbor wants to make sure his fish population doesn’t decrease. They caught a big catfish but weren’t able to reel it in because it broke the line!
What cute girls! They were pretending that Lydia was Alanna’s mother, and Ellen was Christina’s mother. [smile]
Exploring the woods! This was after a long water balloon fight in which both teams were determined not to lose! We eventually had to go with a truss so the fight would end. [big smile]
To all ten of you Taylors….thank ya’ll again SO VERY MUCH for having us in your home! Thanks for making lots and lots of wonderful memories with us all over again! We enjoyed every minute of it and can’t wait until ya’ll come to our home! We love you all!!!
