Days Like These

 Baby dear

Nate stops at a shop on his way home from work and picks up these beauties. Nicest avocado. We love them sliced with Jerk Seasoning.

 A family get together. Nate's aunts.
Like I told Nate's cousins, after living away from home for a few years we became big time suckers for family get-togethers. We love them.

Uncle Nelson chats with his Mother.
Stuart had just got run over by the glider swing which made all the ladies scream. Scaring Grandma. Nelson was the one who noticed.

 Still feeling so happy to be home from Haiti and with my dear Olive again.

 Gorgeous evening.

 We had another ladies cooking show at church last week. Good times just being together. 

 Took the youth on a day trip to Allegany Boys Camp
We cut fire wood, cleared brush, stained siding, planted bamboo, and got a tour of the facility. 
Great day. Now if some of these youth would end up serving at a camp like this we would all be so proud!

 This is where Brian and Angela live at the moment and Angela kept popping the window open to talk to us while we stained the side of her house. Pretty much never a dull moment. 
When we finished she served us the most perfect iced tea I've ever had and left us hang out around her kitchen table. Bless her heart, I know it's not easy having people invade your space all the time, she was so gracious.


  1. Oh wow, I love that camp and the pole tent is awesome! Great pictures, Lydia, I can feel the family togetherness just looking through them all. Blessings to you on your week! ~SHanda

  2. I miss you so much! What beautiful moments you captured, candid and posed. The family picture is so dear (not really the right word) - Carla

  3. I love avocadoes and I'm going to have to try them with jerk seasoning now!

    Love the pictures!

  4. It's fun seeing pics of people and places close to the in-laws. Camp chiefs amaze me!

  5. I really want to like avocados. I have tried them before but have never been a fan. I wish I was b/c they are so good for you. Looks like a really fun camp.

  6. I don't know exactly how I got on to your blog, but I saw a picture of your mom and I was sure she was Marion Zimmerman. We traveled down in an ambulance one time to NIcaragua with your parents. I was around 12 or 13 at the time. I would love to come in contact with her again. Miriam Amaya
