This past week my uncles from Ohio came to visit.
Mom and her 2 brothers, Wally and Mahlon
Uncle Wally is a retired missionary to Paris and Uncle Mahlon has lived on the family farm property outside of Pandora for all these years.
Jill got Claire ready for bed. Here she is saying goodbye to her great-grandpa Pete.
The uncles wanted our family picture.
Mahlon and Anne stayed with us while Uncle Wally's went to Mom's place.
Mahlon learned this game in Africa on a missions trip. He calls it Frizbo and you use Skipbo cards.
On Tuesday, we took a trip to Hutch.
We ate at Anchor Inn, downtown Hutch.
Authentic Mexican - mmmm!
We stopped at the Cosmosphere - here we are at the planetarium. I think some of us might have taken a little nap in the dark!!
"Lift your eyes and look to the heaven: Who created all these? He who brings out the starry host one by one and calls them each by name." Isaiah 40:26
We saw the special on Jerusalem. What fun to see such great filming of the city we visited last March!
When we got home, we took them to Braum's. They don't have Braum's in Ohio. We picked Dad up from the home and took him too. He LOVES ice-cream!
On Wednesday we ate at the college.
Mahlon, Dad's cousin, Myron Voran, and Wally were in the folk's wedding. Myron was the best man and my uncles were groomsmen.
On Thursday, Uncle Wally and Aunt Wanda and Mom met with college friends and had such a wonderful time. In the evening, we had supper together. A couple trick-or-treaters joined in!!
and a pastor!
Jill stayed home with a sick little baby. We missed them!
We sat around until 11:00 and listened to stories of their days growing up.
How we laughed and laughed.
They have gone home now and hopefully we will be able to make a trip out to Ohio in the near future!
