Gatlinburg, baby. We are back again. Our trips to this area are usually centered around events hosted at The Convention Center–one being an annual event directed by the hubs, actually. This is always a fun time for our family to come hang out with Josh and meet some wonderful people. Why other families come here to vacation is still a mystery to me. And I don’t mean the surrounding areas in a cabin in the mountains. I mean, this main strip in Gatlinburg. But I digress.
We started off by visiting with our friends, The Koesters! Ruby spent a couple of nights with them and loved every minute with her sweet friend, Katherine. They fed us a yummy dinner, and we got to catch up with them. I LOVE that Ruby and Katherine have been friends for their whole lives. A rare treasure!
We have enjoyed the GORGEOUS weather God has given us this week for the Timothy+Barnabas Retreat. Lots of sun and warmth.
Josh, Mack and Molly did some racing on Monday. I opted to be the picture taker.
These little crazies have been together the whole time. They have been “helping” Mr. Chris sell some of Pastor Johnny’s materials. They are a funny crew.
Ruby arrived and got her name tag:
It was perfect and true.
The sessions have been fun for the Ladies! Mrs. Janet always plans for a good time….and has amazing speakers come in to teach and encourage the pastor wives.
I ran into our sweet, sweet friends, The Blantons. Love, love them and miss them! We traveled to Israel with them a couple of years ago and had such a fun time. They were in our Sunday School class while they lived in Woodstock for about a year. Thankful God has them in North Carolina, but we miss them!
We took a ride up the Sky Lift this afternoon…it’s a G-burg tradition!
THANKFUL FOR THESE DAYS WITH MY FAMILY!
