Good Friends, Good Times

How fortunate we have been to have good friends in our lives. We've had visitors over the last few days. They came all the way from Idaho via a side trip to CO to see their grand-daughter. What a joy to visit, reminisce, and catch up with each other's lives. We've known each other since our boys were pre-schoolers. We've been through many of life's adventures together when we lived in CA.........including the Northridge Earthquake in January 1994. We've watched our children struggle to grow-up, finish college, get married, and just recently become parents. Surely God has blessed us with the friends in our lives.

While they were here we visited
Hillwood House, a little known gem in Washington, D.C. It was the home of Marjorie Merriweather Post and it houses her collection of Russian art. The gardens were lovely though we are not quite at the height of springtime in the Mid-Atlantic. We also went out to Harper's Ferry, WVA and had coffee and lunch at a great little cafe in Brunswick, MD called Beans in the Belfry.

Today it is windy and blustery following two days of rain. Our friends are traveling south to visit other friends in Asheville, NC. But they'll be back here for one night before heading home to Idaho.
