Summertime in VanWert

We are on day eleven of our visit with Josh's family in Ohio. I am excited to report the internet is finally working!
Truth be told, there wasn't a lot of time to surf the web. We have had a week full of family time, and projects that have kept us all busy.
I just wanted to share a couple of pics for now, and let you all know we are alive. :)

This rainbow was incredible. What a special reminder of God's promise to us never to flood the Earth in that way again. It came in handy as we slept outside some VERY rainy nights and may have thought another flood was coming!

Here are all the cousins. All but Winston I found just sitting like this, taking a break at their great-grandpa's farm, so I pulled him off the tractor and started snapping! My kids are used to living a paparazzi life with me around. I think I may have scared my nieces and nephews. :)

The whole family! Minus me. I am behind the camera. I assume people will know this years from now as they look at these pictures.

We set up camp in the back yard. There is also another tent and a couple of families in the house. Oh yeah. You guessed it. When the Mathew family does something, it is always BIG! (or crowded.:) )

Looks like you are having lots of fun - I can't believe how many people are around that table!!! We miss you though - are you coming home soon????

thanks for finding time to post! I want some of those (the other ones you've snapped around the place!) pictures. :-)

I did read your comment. ***hugs***

In unrelated news, I see this is VanWert, OH -- I grew up just north of there in Williams County. Spent nearly 30 years of my life there. Now I'm in the Pacific Northwest. Small world, always a small world.
