A visit from family

Barrett, Beckie and family arrived shortly after Midnight, July 18th and spent a few days with us in Louisville.  After a late  breakfast on Saturday we went across the street to the vegetable farm and bought some produce for our dinner. 
 Later that day we went to the Slugger Museum in downtown Louisville.  We took a tour of the museum and got to see how the Louisville Slugger Bats are made. Each of us got a miniature bat to keep.

 Sunday we went to church in the Shawnee Branch.  Barrett and family followed us and went on a tour of the branch picking up those who needed rides. 
Mom had a nice meal prepared after church.  We had all the missionaries join us for dessert. (They ate at the Lemmon's house).  In the afternoon we rode over to the Locks with our family and Elder and Sister Lemmons.  They took this picture of us.
Monday, Mom and I worked at the office in the morning and were joined by Barrett and Beckie at noon.  We went to the new KFC store, bought lunch and took it to Tyler Park.
After lunch we went to the river and walked across the big four bridge to Indiana.  It was one of the hottest days we had this summer with high humidity!  We came- home had  supper and took the kids swimming at the pool.  Tuesday Mom and I went to work.  Barrett and Beckie came by and brought Amelia to stay with us.  She worked with us on Tuesday while they went to tour the Toyota car factory in Georgetown.  They make a car there every 43 seconds.  We had a lot of fun with Amelia at the office.  She was definitely a hit.  Wednesday morning they left for Nauvoo, Illinois.
They were able to take in pageants on both Wednesday and Thursday evenings and then drive to St. Louis on Friday to catch a plane back to Seattle early Saturday Morning.  

On Friday, the 25th we decided to have a pioneer day celebration for the missionaries who came into the office. We barbecued some chicken, had corn, beans, watermelon, brownies, etc after their District Meeting. They are Spanish-speaking missionaries. 
The last picture is us hanging out in Louisville on Saturday prior to going to the Slugger museum. We really enjoyed Barrett, Beckie and family visiting.  Their family has really grown up while we have been gone. Love to all!
