Ephrata Weekend

A few weekends ago we took a little trip to Mom and Dad's and to Ephrata to see Joel and Denise's family. Beautiful day for the drive! This is close to Dad and Mom's house. We had asked them if we could stop there and bring breakfast to eat with them. They wanted us to come but insisted on making the breakfast. We enjoyed the delicious breakfast and short visit!

Turned around at one point to see this sweetness:)

Lots of girls having fun on the tramp!

The boys having their own kind of fun...

After supper Joel or Denise told the boys they could go start a bonfire for roasting. Awhile later we looked out to see this......quite a bonfire! I guess it was Ketola-style:) Someone had to go out and tame it down!!! They just might have to notify the fire department when they decide to have a bonfire:)

Joel and Denise prepared their usual 5 star supper for us! It was sooo good! Grilled hamburgers, home-made french fries, and yummy onion rings!

Uncle Joel entertaining the kids with candy and making funny faces specially for the camera:)

Zac and one of his favorite cousins, Barbara!

Relaxing after church on Sunday morning. Julia, Jolena, Benita, and Alexa

This is my favorite photo of all:) We took awhile getting everyone loaded and situated. Finally we backed up and were just going to start honking good-bye when we looked at the house and saw all these guys on the deck with napkins; pretend crying. (although they look pretty happy actually!)

Really enjoyed our mini vacation! Love ya, Mona
