Well ~ Sun City Florida District GMC Camp is officially over. Now we have a few days off before we begin more services. Today we drove 10 miles or so to visit a "Manatee Observation" place. It is located right beside an electrical plant. The manatees apparently are attracted to the warm water generated from the plant.

There were quite a few of them hanging out in the water. They are also larger than I thought.

And of course, we had to have pictures of the kids!

Fun On The Road!

We've been able to spend some time with family and friends while on our trip. The pictures on the scrapbook page below were taken at Paul & Christine Young's house. They have two girls (ages 6 & 7) and Kyle had a blast playing with them! The one evening, they decided to dress Kyle up as a "chef" and we couldn't resist the picture. These pics could prove useful later on in his life!

We were also able to meet up with Dan, Michelle and the boys at a Cracker Barrel in Florida. They've been traveling south with "Heritage" - the girls trio from Penn View.

Notice a few light jackets in the picture? It's been kind of cloudy, rainy and slightly cool! We're hoping for the sunny, warmer days to soon arrive!

Check It Out!

We stopped at 'Hamerick's' today - one of those "must stop and shop" places in the south. Ever since I've traveled in quartet, every time we've stopped there, I've found lots of stuff for incredible prices! Today was no exception. Among other things, we got a new suit for Michael for $26.99 and also an IZOD tie for $4.99. Not bad!

More pics of the kids...

Just Relaxin'!

Can You Believe It?

Will wonders never cease? We actually woke up Thursday morning to SNOW in North Carolina! The more amazing thing is that we're now in South Carolina and they are/were calling for snow. We've also heard that Alabama may be expecting a little whitening too! What is this world coming to?!?!

It looks like Carolina Christian Academy is closed for the day!

Kyle's 4-Wheeler

I really don't have much to blog about...I was going to put some pictures from the Graham N.C. Spanish Church that we visited last Saturday night...but they are blurry! So, I thought I would spare my dear blog guests the agony of less than clear pictures!

Instead, enjoy the photo of Kyle having fun on his 4-Wheeler! This was something we wanted to take on our trip for Kyle to enjoy, but we didn't necessarily have room for it. We managed to cram it into the back of our minivan! Of course, that means we have to take it out to get to everything else...oh well...!

On The Road Again!

We just left on our last deputation tour this past Tuesday. We plan to be on the road for almost 2 1/2 months...return home for Easter...then leave for Mexico the first week of April! We will be visiting the states of North Carolina, South Carolina, Alabama, Florida, Tennessee, Indiana and Ohio!

Our first service was Wed. night in Graham, N.C. so we split that trip up into two days, so we didn't go crazy with two kids... Anyway, we stopped off Tuesday night with Michael's "Uncle Bud." He lives in a little town in Virginia on the Eastern Shore. We had a great time and then the next morning he treated us to breakfast at a little diner. Across the street were some trains...of course Kyle loves trains so we had to get some pictures!

And then we went across the Chesapeake Bay Bridge & Tunnel. We stopped to get pictures and some men who were fishing wanted Kyle to hold their fishing poles...what great fun for a little guy!

We will try to keep you up to date on our journey as much as possible!
