Random Vacation Photos

Before I share pictures I want to thank everyone who gave me such a nice vacation! First of all the B family in SC for having me over for the weekend, and especially Caroline who shared her room with me, Seth and Tara who had most of the family over for dinner, then Caleb and Adri who let me spend a week with them, Granddad who had us overnight, all my friends up at Liberty and Grace Reformed Church in VA, the Es who picked me up very early this morning at the train station....I appreciate all of you and have come back to SC with lots of good memories:-)

A perfect way to begin a vacation week, relaxing outside:-) This was actually during a break we took from setting up for the church picnic on Saturday, May 21st.

We had a fun family dinner at Seth and Tara's on Saturday night. Here's my niece, Laura. Isn't she pretty?!

Adri with some of the brothers (there are 7 more!)

A random shot from the family gathering. Yes, we did sit and talk to one another...some;-)

Sisters, and a niece and nephew.

In case you missed this picture the first time I published it....most of the family at church after my nephew's baptism.

On one of our shopping trips I bought these pretty candles to save for the home I hope to have someday. I love blue and white china but I'd never seen candles with that pattern. I couldn't pass them up:-)

We came across this display of goat cheese - I took a second look and realized that I know the people who make it. Cool!

Caroline took this fun picture of me while I was modeling hats when we shopped.

We drove up to Maryland on Saturday to visit my Granddad. It was a beautiful day for a drive!

On the way we stopped for ice cream. There's a story behind this stop.....we have driven past this cool little shop in Charlotesville more times than I can count, always saying 'someday' we are going to stop. Well Caleb said today was 'someday'! Since my sister has always wanted to eat their ice cream we called her while we were eating and told her what we were doing:-)

I had frozen mocha - very yummy:-)

At Granddad's my aunt pulled out boxes of old pictures and scrapbooks for us to look at. My little cousin Teresa being silly in the background.

Old pictures of my Mom that I had never seen.

"Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it."
Isaiah 55:6,8-1
