Our Whirlwind Week

Wow! This has been a busy week. Last Tuesday I drove with Oliver up to Salina to visit my BEST friend from highschool Chelsie. (in black) Our good Spanish friend Lynette came from New York City (the Huxtable's house!) to visit us, too. We ate at Carlos O'Kelly's and had a good ole' time. They enjoyed seeing Oliver. He got his first taxi cab shirt, book and toy!

Then, Wednesday Aunt Courtney came up to visit us. We went to Wichita and met my parents for lunch and went to Hobby Lobby where her car flooded....again. We also went to Super Target. Fun fun.

That night, we went to our friend's house for a party--and got rained out. It was quite a storm! Luckily, they had room for all 30 of us in their house!
Thursday we left for Branson with our friends Amanda and Dave and their little girl, Taylor. Taylor is almost 9 months old. We enjoyed Dixie Stampede, eating out, mini-golf and go-carts, Tablerock Lake, and much more. Here are some pictures from our trip. We found a nice quiet area to swim and jump from high rocks.

We got home last night around 4:30. I hosted a Bible study at 7pm. This morning, we awoke early to get ready for VBS--I'm helping one-on-one with some kids. That goes until the end of this week. Then, Saturday morning Joel's parents are coming down from Indiana! We are quite busy! But it's all fun stuff.

His lifejacket was at Walmart. It was the "less than 30 pounds" one. It was a little big, but it worked. And "that girl holding Oliver" is Lynette. Yes, you probably did once know her.

Awww Lynette... I baked her a cake once... and walked in on her and a bunch of boys watching Sound of Music... good times :)
