The pastor’s family is gone on vacation to the beach, but they apparently left their heart up here in TN. I’ve gotten a couple of emails already begging for information on what’s been going on this past weekend, so I thought I’d answer them in a blog post.
The McDonald’s came down from Illinois to fellowship with members of Heritage Friday evening; unfortunately, we didn’t make it there until Saturday morning. Saturday was full of work and fellowship. Work included: clothesline assembly (not clothes assembly line), cherry picking, cherry freezing, and lasagna dinner preparation. Here are some pictures from Saturday evening after dinner:
Grace was having some trouble with the mask.
Tiffany, Jessica, and Melissa McDonald
We tried to play a game of Apples to Apples…
… and then we tried again.
This one is just one of those all-too-rare pictures that has to be posted. My parents (and they’re both smiling!!!).
We provided sack lunches for the McDonald’s to take with them on their way to Arkansas.
Lord’s Day, June 1, 2008
Daniel, Kyle, Caroline, Luke, and Allen amused themselves by exchanging checker pieces.
Kyle, Mr. Lingo, Daddy, and Allen watching a sawmill video.
Luke watching Daniel get Cranium set up.
A not uncommon occurrence…
Mama says “Never give TJ checkers!”
TJ thinks “I wonder who will hit me first… It won’t do any good; my iPhone has sound effects too!”
Finally playing Cranium. This is the adult team’s “dog walker.”
Before it got too dark most of us went outside and danced! It was a dance that we had never done before, and we unfortunately have only one picture from it.
Don’t ask me, I don’t know.
We finally got Mrs. Stouffer to play the banjo! She taught Kyle something which he then tried out…
… when he and Claire played “Tennessee Stud.”
I think I’ve exhausted our picture inventory of the weekend, but here are a few of the memorable quotes. Y’all will have to do the guessing as to who said them; I’m not telling!
The adults know lots of trivia!
Tall, plain and ugly, and has the same name as me (the person I am quoting, not me.)
There’s and “a” in 8!
There’s an “a” in 100.
Kyle’s a chick magnet.
I’m sure there were more, but that’s all I can think of right now. Hope that satisfies the vacationers. 🙂
