in the company of friends

I have decided that this is one of my favorite places to be... in the company of friends. Days like these make me want to give communal living a shot!

We enjoyed a visit from some of our most treasured friends. Each family - the Reynolds and the Carpenters - have brought such richness to our lives in the form of fellowship, support, laughter, tears, prayers, warfare, fun...

We anxiously awaited their arrivals and hated to say good-bye.

Here is some of the fun...

... we spent most of our time with the Reynolds here at the house - which means not many pictures. They were about 2/3rds of the way though a 3 week road trip and they were just happy to sit in a non-moving seat. The kids played and played and played. This allowed the adults to talk and talk and talk.

... the pictures from our time with the Carpenters is from our day in Rocky Mountain National Park - truly one of the most glorious places on earth. We happened to be there in what seemed to be peak leaf changing time for the aspens. Isn't it interesting how good company can make a place even more wonderful?

Amen to the communal living! Especially if you're cooking, woman. :-) I made the potatoes. Andy said they were the best he's ever eaten, but I'm pretty sure it was his attempt to get out of the dog house. j/k They were awesome. Oh, and we did the marinade, too. You have officially made our lives richer, once again. dc
