This coming weekend, I am going bye bye! It's exciting enough to be going to a house on a lake for a long weekend, but I am going with three of my very best-est friends! Emily, Abigail, and Mariel so graciously invited me to go along with them! Plus, some of our dear dear friends from Ohio will be going too, the house/cabin is meeting-in-the-middle! (one of my friends is from a family of 17 kids, yes she grew up with 16 siblings, it's so interesting to hear her perspectives on things!)
So we'll be going exploring, and there might be a winery or two involved!
...and, Florida for a long weekend, Halloween. The kids here are all very busy that weekend, so it seemed like a good time to go see Grandma, just Paul and I.
We had an excellent weekend at our couples' conference...
Eight of our kids worked in the kitchen at some point or other over the weekend, with Emily being the chief cook and menu planner.
