Our Recent Visitors....

My sister, Larisa, and her little Ethiopian prince, Yikealo, stayed with us for a few days last week. We spent our time going to the Apple Festival, scrapbooking, talking, eating junk food, drinking coffee, shopping, and going to a birthday party, among other things. The kids also got to take a ride on Roper, my brother-in-law's gentle old horse.

And Chris attempted to take the boys fishing......
