What a fun fall we have had! The highlight was LOTS of visitors.
Larry and Kathy Grasteit spent a few days with us and we loved every minute of it. We played games, toured the site and made a trip down to beautiful Bushkill Falls.
Janis Miller and Johanna Brown also found their way out to New York and Pennsylvania. It was so great to see them and catch up on all the news from back in Colorado. It was quick and short, but we had a chance to attend Church, give a tour, and have a laugh or two. Thanks for coming, ladies!
We also had a visit from Dean's sister and brother-in-law, Ellie and Mel from Utah. We went out to dinner and celebrated Mel's 85th birthday. WOW! The next day they got the VIP tour of the Priesthood Restoration Site.
Our son, Mitch and his wife, Danielle were also here for a few days. They brought grandchildren!!! It was such a blessing to be able to meet our new granddaughter, Raine, and give her some special attention from her grandparents. She is adorable as you can see. 😁
During their visit we got permission to leave mission boundaries for a day, so we went to Cooperstown, NY the home of the Baseball Hall of Fame. We loved a walk through history and the opportunity to learn more about the stars of the this great
American past time.
We also finally did a coal
mine tour down in Scranton, PA
(Dean is super handsome in a hard hat.)
It was a fascinating tour as we descended hundreds of feet underground and learned of the difficult life of a coal miner. The donkeys that worked in the mines eventually went blind, because they never saw the light of day. Their entire life was spent hauling coal in the darkness.
We've enjoyed a lovely fall, and even got into the Halloween spirit around here.
Can you guess what our costumes are??? (Missionaries have to be creative---and minimal) Dean is a bulletin board and Cheryl is a "ceiling fan".
(Get it???) 😉
