Road Trippin'

It has been a while since I've blogged, and one reason for my absence was our week long road trip due north to the Dutch land of Holland, MI.

Our little family is still waiting to hear about jobs.  We are living in Birmingham with family while we are waiting.  Since we've got a little extra time on our hands we decided to take off on a road trip 2 weeks ago to visit some of our dear seminary friends that we are already missing.  The Speeces, who were beloved visitors to apartment C4, are living in Nashvillle, TN.  The Kiels, one set of next door neighbors, live in Louisville, KY.  And the Vissers, our other set of next door neighbors, live outside of Holland, MI.  We really appreciate our friends strategically moving to the perfect locations for our road trip!  We had a fabulous time!  Here are a few pictures for you to enjoy!

We stopped on our first day of traveling to have lunch with the Speeces.  Weston enjoyed having 3 playmates!  Thanks Speece kids for sharing your toys!  Weston will be enrolling in The Speece School as soon as there is an opening!

Then it was off to Louisville for our first night.  We stayed with the Kiels that first night then stayed with them for 2 nights on our way back south.  Here we are at Southern's Fall Festival.  For all you fellow seminarians, this event was just a bit bigger than our RTS Pig Jig.  Kevin's head is blocking the Ferris kidding :)

Samuel showing Weston a little love!

After the first night with the Kiels, we completed our route to the north to spend 4 days with the Vissers.  Weston is 3 weeks older than Geneva Visser, and they spent many days of our last year of seminary playing together.  One skill we had to work on during our visit was sharing...a new concept for both of our little ones.

Our visit to a very windy Grand Haven on the Lake Michigan coast.

So we took no pictures of all 6 of us together, but we did get some cutes pictures of Geneva and Weston in the bathtub.  Since we already have their marriage arranged, these pictures will come in quite handy for their rehearsal dinner :)!


  1. Precious pictures! Glad you all had a wonderful time! Love your blog.

  2. Super fun! Love seeing all of these familiar faces!

  3. Adorable! I love the bath pictures!! It's so neat to see all of us together again even if it's on a blog post in 3 separate cities :)
