Mom and Dad @ Mountwood

I went to Parkersburg last week to see my family. I had a nice drive there - perfect, sunny weather. On Monday evening, my Aunt Nancy and Uncle Danny stopped by and that was a very nice surprise. I hadn't seen either of them since my Grandmother's funeral. We laughed until we almost cried listening to my cousin Danny tell stories. He should write a book! On Wednesday evening, the thunderstorms went away and the sun came out so we could have a picnic at Mountwood park. It was a wonderful time! In addition to my immediate family, my Aunt Irene, Unlce Lawrence, and Aunt Janice came along. We grilled some delicious food and played croquet. Who knew my mom was such a good croquet player?? The look on my Dad's face when mom beat him was PRICELESS! On Friday night, my Aunt Luanne stopped by and there is never a dull moment when she is around. I hope I have inherited some of her sense of humor. Of course I went to Crafts2000 before I came home. I didn't find as much as I usually do, but I was able to get some early Christmas shopping done. When I left P-burg, my brother seemed to be doing better. However, it's hard to really describe someone's health when they are chronically ill. I hope you are all having a blessed day!

I love looking at pics of your family! It looks like you all had a wonderful time. Seeing your pictures makes me miss my own family.
