I have neglected this poor blog again! 😛 But I have been extremely busy the past couple pf weeks. Among other things, my Dad’s brother Jim and sister-in-law Naomi (who are missionaries to Germany) are in town until this Monday. We’ve been doing a lot activities with them, trying to spend as much time with them as possible. Beware, this is going to be a long post (and this isn’t even very detailed at all). xD
March 13 – Phoebe made 3 flavors of ice-cream (peanut butter, strawberry, and pina colada) and I made two lemon/strawberry cheesecakes.
March 14 – My siblings and I got together for dinner, with some long time friends of ours (the D. brothers and Daniel D.’s fiancee, Talley A.). When I say long time, I mean it— we’ve known them for 16 or so years and counting. They are like our other family! 🙂
March 16 –
March18 – All my siblings and I played Ultimate Frisbee with about 20 other friends. We had a blast!!!
March21 – I helped my aunt make spring rolls, and we ate those for lunch along with sushi and stir fry (my aunt made that too).
Mom’s friend, Maurita W. and her husband were in town from Oklahoma, so they visited with us for a couple of hours.
And then Dad’s sister and her kids came over. Needless to say, this house was very crowded (there were like 20 of us here), but we had a ton of fun! Phoebe made a delicious carrot cake for dessert, topped with cream cheese/honey frosting. Mmm…. Some of us played Monopoly and Uno, while others of us talked.
And then all of us cousins went on a walk to the park. There, I did an impromptu photo shoot with my cousin, Rowena (I’ll post photos from that soon). We had fun scrambling over the stepping stones at the stream and we laughed a lot!
March22 – In the morning, we toured the Institute for Creation Research facilities. We got to meet several people (including Henry Morris IIII) and got to see some of their staff who we already knew.
After we got back from the touring, my friend Simcha S. came over. She took off with my sisters and I to do a photo shoot (photos from that to come soon). We had a ton of fun!!
Caleb (my brother) and our “brother”/friend, Isaac D., got to come over for the evening, for supper and games. 🙂
