sorry I haven't posted in a while...but I haven't had internet access for a few days...obviously. Oh well. I should be back home tomorrow night, so pray for safe travels!
This morning we woke up, and after all of us got breakfast from the Hotel, we started packing from the car. I suggested that because it was Sunday, that we do a Bible Study or devotional…so that’s what we did. After that, we were on the road. We continued on the road, and when lunch time hit, we made meat Sandwiches in the car. We continued on the road until about 4:00 in the afternoon, and stopped at a gas station to let everyone use the restroom…it’s a good thing we did too, because we asked the man at the front desk where “Walnut St.” was, (that would be where the Gebhard’s family son and daughter-in-law live) and he told us that we literally just passed it, so with anticipation, we turned around, and were there in 3 minutes. After staying there for about an hour, we all went to get pizza. After we ate, we all went to sleep.
We woke up, all of us, very tired!!! I slept on the only couch, and sorry to say, had/has a nest of spiders living in it. I was scared the whole night after we killed the first 2 spiders. As the day went on, Joe brought home a turtle, and Christian was playing with it. We went to go see the Amish that day and came back to the container the turtle was staying in…and it was gone!!! We searched all over for it, but it was nowhere to be found. We have a lot of assumptions to where it could have gone, but we don’t know for sure…any way’s, we found a grand total of 6 spiders all of today…and they were mostly on the couch! (Yikes! To think I slept on them) so…because it was Memorial Day, we had a Barbecue to make it feel more like Memorial Day. That night when Joe and Tiffany went to work, we got out the vacuum, and cleaned the couch out…unfortunately, a lot of the spiders are hiding in the back end or somewhere else, where we can’t reach them. We also got out the comet cleanser and scrubbed the bathroom, since Tiffany hasn’t had the time since their wedding 2 months ago, plus working a job.
Any way’s, getting to the Amish; we visited so many Amish in the Bowling Green, Missouri area. It is so interesting to see the different kinds of styles they have per community. For this particular community, they had a typewriter….you know the old ones from the movies…ding, ding, ding, slide over…yeah! They also sell “English” items in their store…pretty interesting!!!
This morning we woke up, and…had a terrible night sleep. None of us slept on the couch, because of the whole spider thing. So, we slept on the floor…let me tell you…we had sore backs that night, but it’s over with. We traveled all day today, until we got to the Mr. and Mrs. Gebhard’s daughter (the Gebhard’s children’s sister) - Danielle and Chad with their 2 cute children, with one on the way!
We woke up in the morning, and went to the Omaha Nebraska zoo!!! The Gebhard’s wanted to show me how big it was. I guess it’s one of the biggest Zoo’s in the country… any way’s, I have to say…that is an AMAZING ZOO!!! I loved it! I even got to hold cute little Shayleigh who’s She’s one! After that, we came home had some good ol’ Little Caesars Pizza.
