had the church members over for her annual pool party. It was a
warm September 23rd, so quite a few went in the pool.
Here are some pictures from the
Matt and Crystal are having their kitchen
renovated. I went over to help Matt gut the kitchen in preparation
for the workers. I had to lie down on
the job to disconnect the dishwasher. River, who is six weeks shy of
a year old, is just about walking on her own. In this movie,
Crystal is providing some support. Here's a frame
from the movie.
Sarah and Steve rented a house on Block
Island for a week and invited the Holzer and Wolaver families to
come for the whole week or part of it. We went for the last
four days. The house is on the bay (I think it's also called a big
pond) across from where it opens into the ocean at the Coast Guard building. The
weather was glorious, and we loved Block Island. The house was perfect—a
main house with an extension and a covered deck between. Sarah and
family were in the main house's two bedrooms. Across the deck was
a two-story extension with two bedrooms down (with a bath between) and
two more bedrooms upstairs (from an outside stairway). The living
room/dining room/kitchen was one open area. The living room part
stuck out toward the water with cathedral ceiling and huge sliders on
three sides onto a deck that went around 2.5 sides of the house.
It was great to have the whole family together and to see the three
grandkids play together and really get to know each other. Steve
went fishing a lot with his brother and dad the first part of the week,
and with Matt once. Lynn and I read a lot, played with
grandkids, and took a hike with Sarah's and Matt's families. Here's a page
of pictures from the vacation.
