A fun filled weekend

Mia's friend...my how these beautiful princesses have changed... Hugs...

Video games.... Fun in the Sun...

Mandy seemed quite taken with this little princess... (she stole my heart too)

We made a trip to see friends this weekend. We had such a good time just hanging out and watching the kids play. Our friends (China travel buddies '06) have just recently moved to a wonderful house in the country. We had plenty of space to wander and enjoy. The kids had a terrific time fishing at the pond and going for canoe rides...even if the did get stuck in the middle of the pond occassionally. The kids also found great joy in video games... I think all of them would have turned into "junkies" if we hadn't insisted they enjoy the great outdoors too. The grownups had fun visiting and did I mention eating... Ms.T fixed some wonderful food while we were there. It seemed as if we just ate and ate and ate. Perhaps the "funnest" part of the weekend was staying up and watching a storm blow past... taking out the electrical power with it. We had fun making rounds and checking on sleeping kids and acting silly with flashlights. We watched in their front yard as a raccoon approached(in the terrible storm) to steal the dog food. Brad had fun picking on the poor critter... It didn't act very much afraid of anything(even the full brunt of a flashlight bulb shining in it's eyes). So, Brad started barking like a dog... it flew over kids toys and scampered away( but only for a short while). All the grownups started laughing so hard ... it is a good thing we didn't wake the kids. It was just a very nice,peaceful weekend, and we all enjoyed sharing it with our friends.
Silliness...
