Around the House
April 24, 2007 - April 29, 2007
After more than a week of traveling from Key West, FL to Mobile, AL, we were happy to relax in a home with our good friends and cousins, the Mahars.
After all the hotels and restaurants we'd been in, their house felt very homey.
It was even fun to help in the kitchen!
And in the backyard. Isaac had been working on this fence and Eli got to dig a couple post holes.
Alaina had grown remarkably since we saw her last and we were glad to finally meet Katrina, who was born about a week after Joshua.
It was refreshing to spend a few days with Isaac and Lydia and the girls; we had missed playing games, watching movies, and having long discussions since they left Oregon in January, 2005 when Isaac joined the Coast Guard.
Bouncing and jumping in the spacious backyard.
Enjoying chocolate chip pancakes for breakfast!
This visit was one of the highlights of our trip!
