Jan is ready.
First stop was the toy store where we tried out some hula hoops.
Ann found it easiest with the hoop around her knees. Go Ann!
We had so much fun looking around, people watching, and enjoying being together. We found lots of interesting things in the shops. Ann tries on a hat. She's really not older than dirt.
This little boy was offered us some tea, and explained the benefits of the tea in great detail. When he spilled a bit on his hands, he said it is also a great moisturizer. It's like colored water, but better. He is ten, and he will either make it big time in the world or spend the rest of his life in Nashville, Indiana hawking tea to the ladies.
In Nashville, you might find yourself surrounded by beauty...
Ann liked these tennis shoes.
Mary and I preferred these black ones. We liked how they were stomping on the red ones. :)
We asked another stranger to take our photo, and headed back to the cabin just as it started to rain.
Ann even tried a little punch!
Here is the salmon ready for the grill...
and cooked to perfection.
Just as we were ready to eat, Amy called for us to come outside. It was the most incredible full double rainbow right over the house. It felt like it was just for us, and we were running all over the yard taking pictures.
The rainbow was just one of the blessings we shared this weekend. I thank God for good friends, yes old friends, and the opportunity to spend a few precious days together.
