Playing Hooky

This last Sunday we took a last minute day trip,this is a self potrait (: , we went on a bike ride. We wanted to get out and enjoy the fall colors while we could, it was a perfect day to go riding. The colors weren't at their peak yet but they were gorgeous!!

But.....waiting for me at home are these unfinished jobs...............................

The railing on the deck is waiting to be painted and we started another project;

laying block for our patio.But alas, I know these projects WILL wait, in the mean time we enjoyed our day. We went at the right time, because on the way home we ran into rain, and the temp dropped quite a bit.

The people on the deck are our nephews and future brother-in-law. This summer we had our first family reunion. We had such a great time. This was a b'day party the night before the reunion had started. We even had family here from my mother-in-laws side of the family.

Us with our grandchildren, we have a new grandson since this picture.

Cousins getting to know each other.

We had a very special Sunday morning service down by the lake, my brother-in-law had a challenging message for us all.

My father-in-law lead us as a family in communion...

Our niece was baptized, and our son-in-law was honored to assist the pastor from her church in the baptisim. So many special memories from this weekend. I am so blessed to be a part of this family. We never want to forget the heritage that has been passed on to us. I pray that I remain faithful, and thankful that I have a loving heavenly Father who made this all possible.

Glad you guys got away for a day! The start of the patio sure looks good. Noah saw your deck and said, "Hey, is that Grandma and Grandpa's house?" I said it was and he said, "You mean Bob and Sue's house?" Very funny! Thanks again for watching the boys this weekend, it was so appreciated!
