Journaling our cross-country journey...
I rolled out of bed around 8:30, enjoyed a quiet walk
uphill to mama-in-law's house to get a cup of coffee.
Hubby was already there enjoying his cup
and I was glad to join the morning table talk.
I got myself a second cup and one for Ally
then walked back to the camper to wake the children.
They all got dressed then we went to the house
to enjoy a delicious breakfast. ;-)
As the menfolk enjoyed a golf outing later,
the lil' girls (and Ally) enjoyed cooling off
in the slip and slide that Aunt got them.
It was quite a sight to see.
of the little girl our Ally once was...
to see her heartily laugh and have fun.
It was a delight to see the lil girls have such fun, too. ;-)
I sat on the porch, enjoying the hot Alabama day,
visiting with my mama-in-law & sis-in-law.
Later, the ladies enjoyed lunch out
and then shopped at a local flea/antique market.
I found a few special finds,
Including some homeschool books!
Later, hubby, the children, and I went to Bass Pro Shop.
We enjoyed looking at the fish tank, shooting rifles (toy),
and finding a few nature books to add to our collection.
Then we enjoyed an ice cream together outside.
and Ally and I got matching flip flops
(they were buy one get one free!). ;-)
Our final stop, before heading back to the house,
was at a local artesian well (pictured above).
It was fun to read about the well
and to fill our water bottles!
I was reminded of how Jesus is our Living Water
and how, when we drink from HIM,
we will be satisfied and will not thirst again.
"But whosoever drinketh of the water
that I shall give him
shall never thirst;
but the water that I shall give him
shall be in him a well of water
springing up into everlasting life"
~ Luke 4:14
After supper, we enjoyed fellowshipping
and retired to the camper some time after 10pm.
Tomorrow, LORD willing, we head to Arkansas.
