Jessica and Terry and kids, Chance, Thad and Araya, arrived around 7:30. We spent the evening visiting and Araya spent the night with us. I led Jessica and Terry to Ilene's, since a bridge is out on the GPS route, to spend the night since we do not have room here.
Araya stayed up WAY too late helping me fix pretzel salad. At one point she wanted her mommy. However, Jessica had already told her that if she stayed, there was no mommy to come and get her. So, when I reminded her of that, she laid down and went right to sleep.
Saturday, Jessica and Terry and the kids came over around 10 and the woods activities on the dune buggy and 4-wheelers began. At noon we began to eat sloppy joes, baked beans, potato salad, macaroni salad and cole slaw. Dessert was brownies and ice cream and pretzel salad. Ilene came over after she went to some yard sales and ate lunch with us.
After lunch, even the ladies joined the guys and kids out in the woods. I wanted to get some pictures of the activities.
Supper was left overs, Arby sandwiches and Domino's pizza, and more brownies and ice cream and pretzel salad. All of the kids went to Ilene's to sleep.
After church today, Jessica and Terry came back to the house with us to eat lunch before heading for home. It has been a good weekend!

Thank You for each and every soldier who has lost their life defending the freedoms of our nation so that I can serve You freely! Comfort the hearts of every family missing a loved one who died defending my freedoms. I pray in Jesus' name!
