Mom and I went to a going away party for Marlys today. (She is on the right.) She ran the Cradle of Hope program at work for many years. She and her husband are moving to Florida in a couple weeks and we will miss them.

Rend Colletive Concert

 Amy and I helped out at the Rend Collective concert held at our church last weekend!
 They were such fun!  But SO LOUD. :O  I mainly listened from the lobby!

 There is a lot of work that goes on after a concert.

Sarah, the sweet singer who's table I helped with. =)

Twin Cities Food Tour

This was such a fun outing with coworkers! 
I loved being able to taste what these different unique shops had to offer, 
and see so many AMAZING old houses! 

 Can I just live here?? 

Yummy Russian dumplings.

"Tater tots" with broccoli and cheese - so good!!


So thankful for my coworkers!

Trip to Indy

It was a treat to get to visit our adopted Aunt and Uncle in Indiana for a few days!

We sat and visited.

Watched southern gospel concerts.

Ate yummy food.

Drove on narrow curvy roads that reminded me of Vermont. =)

 Went to IKEA - (first time for me) and walked what felt like miles, 
and enjoyed eating lunch at their cafeteria.

 Went to the Gaither gift shop and also took a tour of the studio and museum. SO FUN!

And guess who we saw in the gift shop! :O :D

We explored downtown Indianapolis.
 And went to the Indiana War Memorial. I loved this place.  
 We tried for a selfie with all three of us but that didn't work so well (how do people do it??),
so we took two separate pictures. So thankful for these dear friends!

 On my way home! I love seeing the cloud formations from above.

The Chicago airport all decorated with American flags!
I LOVE to travel!

A Visit From A Dear Friend!

Our friend Cynthia came up and stayed with us for a week!!  
We LOVED having her with us and we had such a good time together.  
So thankful for faithful friends the Lord gives us!
Cynthia and Mom

 We picked her up from the airport and then went to Ana and Caleb's house
 and then out for brunch and a little shopping and sightseeing!

  This was a fun book store with a lake on the ceiling, a cat on the couch, and a chicken walking between the book shelves! 

In Texas they don't have fall colors like we do, so she was so excited to see them. It was neat to see something we are used to through the eyes of someone to whom it is a new thing. :)

At Christmas Point

Lunch after church on Sunday.

Lunch with Ana before taking Cynthia back to the airport. 
:) :) :)
