Well--we just spent a wonderful weekend in Jal, New Mexico! Both sets of Josh's grandparents live there, so we made a good 3 day weekend of it, and traveled the 9 hours packed in our minivan to see the great-grandparents. Kay Kay and Pop Pop welcomed us around 3 a.m. our time, (only 2 a.m. their time), and we slept hard the rest of the night. We had a nice, relaxing morning in their backyard, watching the birds, letting the kids play in the dirt, and just enjoying visiting. We were able to visit with Nana and Dandy Don later in the day, and also Summer and her family--the kids now had 4 more to play with! They were excited! We spent some time down at the Jal park, feeding the ducks, swinging, and sliding.
One of the best parts of the weekend was Sunday, when Josh got to preach, teach class, and preach again in the evening! He had been planning and looking forward to this for such a long time--and he did a GREAT job! He is amazing--so good at speaking and getting the
points across--WOW--I am married to such a wonderful, Godly man!
What a great weekend! We traveled home on Monday, stopped in Lubbock to see an old college friend, and thankfully had a great trip home--the kids travel so well now! Off to Austin this next weekend for a wedding--more traveling....more blogging!!
Here are 6 of the 7 cousins that were in Jal for the weekend--all climbing the big slide!
