Courtney had her car loaded up with things we had brought for her to take back to Alabama.
Isaac is the little stow-away!! Nope......he stays with us.
The drive down to Buffalo, Texas, was lovely and we enjoyed spending the weekend with
Joe's aunt and uncle. They have a beautiful property in this small town.
Isaac and Joshua were more than ready to run around and get the wiggles out!
They had fun with cousins James and Joshua (second cousins? once removed?)
Joshua very quickly remembered the toy closet under the stairs!
Getting ready to enjoy one of the many good meals on the deck.
Courtney and Cousin Robby's wife Amber.
Aunt Lee Gayle - always the gracious hostess!
The couple on the right are missionaries to Nicaragua and were back on furlough.
It was fascinating to hear about their lives there.
Amber's dad most graciously took a picture of all of us!
Hmmmm......one afternoon we went outside to see that Isaac, Joshua, James, and Joshua
had been trimming bushes!
Boys helping Uncle Bob out in the barn.
Courtney and I were ready to head out on an adventure!
But first.......a quick check of the engine, tires, fluids, etc. by dear ol' Dad!
And we're off! We went out to lunch and then went to the Russel Stovers outlet store!
Then the next morning we were ready to head out VERY EARLY to make it back to Arizona in one day! Of course, gaining two hours as we headed west helped us quite a bit.
Saying good-by is so very hard.
Yes, this is the view for the majority of the drive back!
What a great trip we had! Looking forward to doing it all again next year!
Only next year we will be visiting Alabama for Courtney's college graduation!
