A picnic with Grandma and Grandpa

What a lovely fall day the Lord has blessed us with! I got between 2 and 3 hours of sleep last night b/c our Mikayla was not feeling well. And Jody went into work at 3 this morning. It's so neat how the Lord will give the right amount of strength and grace for each day.

I decided it'd be a good day for a picnic. So, we packed a lunch and away we went. We went to Coggin Park and sat under the pavillion and ate lunch, which consisted of ham/provolone cheese sandwiches, chips, cookies and white grape peach juice. It was chilly in the shade! When we finished eating, Grandma, Big boy (Joseph) and I spread a blanket in the sun while Grandpa and Mikayla played and played. It was so much fun to watch them together :-). I should've taken pictures, but sometimes it's just nice to enjoy your surrounding without having to worry about a camera.

We've had a most wonderful visit with Jody's parents. They'll be leaving this afternoon to go visit Cisco. I'm sure Mikayla's heart will be broken when she has to say goodbye. We've enjoyed them SO much.

The leaves are changing!!! And they're BEAUTIFUL!
Have you noticed?

Love those LA Dodsons! Good to see them.

I went down a street in Coleman whose trees made a tunnel, and the leaves were falling, and I wanted to cry for missing Pennsylvania. BIG sigh.

Miss being witca!


PS But does she miss EMS?
