I've been out of town since last Thursday on a trip to spend four glorious days with my Mom and the rest of my family in West Virginia. We had an awesome trip and I got to see a lot of my family. It was fabulous. But I am back. I just needed a break from blogging while I was gone. I got to spent time with both my brothers. It's been about two years since I saw them.
My great niece Elizabeth made a smiley face with M & M's in her ice cream cone.
My great niece Adriel loved her Aunt B's chocolate frosting. Of course, I didn't get her out of it till I got the pic. She is a sweetie pie.
Congrats to my nephew, Jake, for passing all his tests and he is now a Deputy with the Sheriff's Department.
My nephew, my grandson Caleb and my Mom.
Mom with a few of her great grandbabies. There were a couple more outside playing ball and still even more who weren't able to come.
We took a driving tour of the area since my daughter and her kids had not been in for 6 years and she wanted to show them some sites. The beautiful lake at the City Park.
The house I lived in when Allen proposed to me in the kitchen.
They turned an old 1901 home into a visitor center. This is all original. It has never had to be restored since it has always been cared for and loved. I always wanted to go inside it.
We got to take a tour of the whole place since it wasn't busy. My sister and I love the inset china hutch. Wouldn't it be beautiful filled with Pyrex.
And then we sat on the lovely stair case and had a chat. The lady in charge took pictures of us all over the house. She was so sweet.
It was a wonderful visit and I wouldn't have missed it for the world. I needed the break after everything that has happened this past year. I'm already missing them all and thinking about when I can get back up there again.
