A really good day

Yesterday was one of those great days. The kind where everything is just easy and lovely, and all of the right elements just sort of come together at the same time and everything clicks. We all got together in Montrouis to celebrate Bobi’s birthday and to visit with Diane and her crew from the US. We got to hang out at a beautiful place and enjoy a wonderful afternoon with friends.
I haven’t been able to sit and soak in the ocean, or any body of water, for long enough to get a good sunburn in a while. It’s so great when everyone loves  your kid and wants to take her off your hands :o)
Chris and Peter, one of our visitors this week.
Our friend Elsie, and our other guest, Isabel.
Peter chatting it up with Bobi’s mom.
Me, Bobi and Elsie. God has really blessed us with some great friends here. We love these ladies.
Olivia did her job of charming everyone there, as usual.
Olivia also got to help Bobi open all the birthday presents sent from home. She was a very good helper.
The birthday girl and her mom. Bobi’s mom had made arrangements for Bobi to spend the weekend at the house with Diane and the team so she could get a bit of a break from Canaan. The big surprise for Bobi though was when her mom walked out of the airport on Thursday just after the other people Bobi had gone to pick up. What a fun birthday gift:)
The following are my all time favorite pictures of the day, SOC (straight out of camera). I love having a wonderful day with friends, and I love it even more when I have fabulous pictures to remember the day by, which is mostly about me remembering to actually get the camera out and using it.
