Well it is about 7:30 on Saturday morning and I am sitting in a hotel room in Austin, Minnesota. While the rest of my family sleeps in a little I thought I would blog….
We left the reunion in Mount Carmel yesterday. :( We were sad to say good-bye. We had a great time!
Our last days there were action packed, never lacking for anything to do.
On Wednesday night the dress up theme was “70’s”. I didn’t bring costumes but these are the girls bathing suit cover ups….. hey they worked! Groovy right?
Also that night the kids all put on a mini musical. The little kids (5 and under) sang a song…… “when you walk with the Lord, you don’t get bored!” It was very cute!
Swimming in the lake was a favorite. This week Anna proved that she can NOT do without a nap. Each day she fell asleep in a different random spot. One night on a dining chair, a couple times in someone’s arms, and on this particular day she fell asleep while swimming! Here Josh is bringing her into shore.
Canoeing with cousins……
They were so excited to hold all of them, and somewhat disappointed we couldn’t take any home.
Here are the girls on Thursday night, “Twins Night”….
On the last night, the session was about sharing faith beyond our borders. Someone had coordinated getting flags from all the countries that different members of the family had served in either short term or long term missions in. There were over 40 countries that were represented. It was pretty amazing to see the flags paraded around the chapel as we all sang “For a Thousand Tounges”.
Friday morning….. time to say good-bye to our little cabin, and family. They have a reunion every 4 years. Hard to believe that Bekah and Anna will be 9 and 6 next time!!!!!!!!
Saying good-bye to the Hoffs til we all get back to California.
What a fabulous time we had. Now onto the rest of our road trip adventure!
