Sunday

Sunday we had a special time. Anna, Mary, Abby, and Bethany surprised Mom with chocolate chip muffins for breakfast. It was a beautiful, first “real” day in Colorado, with a delightful time of worship of our precious Saviour, Jesus Christ. Then there was time on the ponds, time to talk, and also a special time of celebrating Mom’s birthday.

Here’s a peek into our day.

Joyfully His,

    Joshua and Ruthie are about 21 months apart. Drew is 6 or 7 weeks old?

  8. It is always a pleasure to see the photos of your annual trip to Colorado. Every year there are more Maxwells to join in on the fun. May your trip give you the rest and refreshment for the seminars this autumn. I must mention that you are a most attractive and healthy looking family! ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. That clear water is amazing! Looks like you are having a great time and so glad all the little ones (and their parents) could make it. Your parents must love having everyone together and being a bit out of the routine. With all the young ones, are you managing to stay in one cabin and is anyone getting much sleep?

    They love having all together for sure! All in one cabin, but different rooms. Sleeping has been great.
