Day 10 & 11

Well we are HERE! This is the half way point of our trip. The Stime Family Reunion. Josh’s grandma Berdine was one of nine children and around 170 of the 495 relatives from those 9 are here at Mt Carmel in Minnesota for a week of fellowship. Five generations of bible believing, Christ serving people! WOW!

Our girls with cousin Peter.

There are a ton of activities for the kids. Face painting was a hit! Here is Anna taking a bath in the sink. She is NOT a shower fan.

And each night we have a theme of sorts. Kind of a contest. Last night was “Crazy Hair Night”. And boy did we get crazy. Anna, and Rebekah were more than willing to sit for this hair styling session.

But believe it or not, the craziest one in the bunch ended up being……………………………………………………….

JOSH!!!

Doesn’t he just strike you as a CRAZY kinda guy?

This whole thing sort of evolved into something much more “bizarre” than we had planned. Apparently I did not quite understand his vision. As I began to do the back…….. well, let’s just say we were both rolling in tears and laughter. And we had no choice but to “go for it”!

So here is the following……..

After dinner each night we have had a session, with music, worship, stories and lots of laughs.
