We were delighted to host new family friends from Texas last week...lots of activities, lots of pictures, and lots to blog about! Hang on!
Erich (top right), a young man in our church who works with Jonathan, invited his family to come to Virginia for a visit to meet his friends and church family. We enjoyed hosting them while they were in our area. What a wonderful peak week for leaves here in the Valley...I think they fell in love with our mountains and cooler weather!
Day 1 ~ Hiking, Hymns, and Haircuts
Nothing like a hike to stretch your legs after a 24-hour drive! The first day we drove north and hiked Wolf Gap at Big Schloss, geocacheing while there, and picnicking afterward.
Each evening after supper we gathered for family devotions and a time of hymn singing.
And...since everyone left Texas needing a haircut, Kandace obliged by giving each of the guys in her family a cut...including shaving off a beard! Here they are all lined up...from oldest to youngest!
Next: Day 2 - Flying High!
