The McDonald's visit

Over the past couple days we have been blessed with the fellowship of the McDonald Family who stopped at our house between a conference that they were at in Michigan, and a conference they are going to in Texas. They arrived Sunday afternoon and stayed until Wednesday morning. Here's a few pictures from their stay.

Talking, talking, and talking late into the night and early morning. :-)

Monday night we also had Jeremy, Sara, Caroline, and the whole Strand family over for dinner. I'm not sure exactly what's happening in this picture, but Christa appears to be moderating a "conversation" between Caroline and William.

Of course, there were many volleyball games played during their stay. I'm not sure how many games we played, but it must have been around a dozen. It was a lot of fun.
Um... Let's not mention the team records.

Did the ball make it over;
Or was that part of the record that wasn't supposed to be kept? :)

Mrs. Von Holten,

Based on the next picture that was taken, yes the ball went over the net...and you can guess what happened after that. :-)

Yes Mrs. VonHolten, I'll bet you can guess...

We hit it right back over the net and it landed where Josh used to be before diving out of his zone.

LOL! :-)
