Company from Georgia… The state my husband is from…

His sister just had a stroke… but, was determined to come and visit and be here for her brother’s birthday…

Not a big celebration… just to see him and be with us…

Her daughter and two Grandchildren came along… and we had a wonderful weekend! …

Arriving on Friday evening… I had dinner ready…

Of course we talked and hugged at first… then ate…

I had decided on…

Sweet/Sour Pasta Salad

Cucumbers/Tomatoes/Onions with Italian Dressing k15640858

Things I could make and keep until they showed up… and with me working until noon… it worked!…

After we ate we sat outside and caught up a little…

Us getting to see how the stroke had affected Bobby’s sister… She was doing great!… We were so happy with her progress!…

I had an agenda for the next day…

It worked out great!…

After our two-mile walk… we opted for a quick-lunch at McDonald’s 200px-McDonald's_Golden_Arches_svg

Sitting and talking to them… and each other was in awe of the growth of the kids…

Left to rest up a bit…

More talking as family does!… and then we went our separate ways… They to their hotel room and us home… It was getting very late… and they were heading home the next morning…

We are hoping to make a trip South before summer is up… but, will welcome any of the rest of the family if they decide to visit!

It was so fun being with this sweet group of peopleLove shines through this family…ti087a1602
