Saturday morning we drove to Jacksonville to stay with Chad's parents. We had such a great visit - we ended up going to St.Augustine Saturday afternoon to see Jenny (Chad's sis) and she cooked an amazing dinner for our family! Great-granny, Aunt Nancy and Mindy (Chad's cousin) came to visit us in St.Augustine and we had such a good time with them! Sunday morning we headed to Palatka to attend Great-Granny's congregation...I LOVE the members of her church. There is a member who turned 100 years old this past year and she still manages to walk in on her own and feed her self lunch on the days when they have Dinner On the Grounds. Since they don't often have little one's on Sunday mornings, they always get a kick out of seeing Granny's great-grandchildren when they're in town! There is SO much wisdom in that congregation and I am always humbled when I'm there...seeing the elderly members treated with so much tenderness and respect, hearing the preacher speak with so much reverance...it is truly a wonderful experience. When we got home that afternoon, we went for a wagon ride, we fed the horses next door and Shepherd got to ride on his Jeep Wrangler...it was too cute!
