Catching up with friends in Kansas City, Missouri

We had our RV house parked in Kansas City, Missouri for 4 weeks! I can hardly believe it has been that long. We parked at the house of Larry and Teresa from the church that we attended when we lived here in Missouri. This picture was taken near sunset and so you can see the sun shining on our RV house too.

 They have gone out of their way to make us feel comfortable here. They held a welcome party for us when we first arrived. Many of our friends were there. It was fun to start catching up with these dear people.

 We have a good friend of our son’s, Patrick that we had not seen for 4 years. They have another child, a son since we last saw them. Their other kids were so grown up and then their little one was fun to meet. It was so good to see them all again.

Here he is with his sweet daughter.

Amber was like an older daughter to us too. She married Heath and they have these two amazing kids. The young lady on the left is a Little Sister for them and was able to come along for the party. She was so sweet too!

Our hosts had a garden which was our picture window view. They were glad to share end of season fresh tomatoes, peppers of all colors and kale. I cooked one day to have some tomato sauce. Yum!  We are still eating that sauce. Pretty picture too.

You can see their earth contact home in the left hand side of the picture and his shop is the pretty red building.. But this was our view while we parked here. So nice!

Here is a picture of Teresa and their son with his daughter. This is from another visit…but I didn’t get any pictures of Larry and Teresa so had to use this one. I like it too.

We then flew to the Northwest for the two week trip there.

We got together with several friends. Here Trish and Paul and us had Steak…check out the horns on the back wall. I used to bowl with these guys and we always had  lots of fun together. This  picture was taken with the iphone and is a bit grainy. We still have a lot to learn about using our phone as a camera.

We have been meeting up with friends daily if not several times a day to catch up with all the people that we could. Kent spoke in our former church on Sunday. We got to go to a concert where a Phil was the conductor.  That was so special too as he will soon be retiring. We often went to his concerts over the years. Phil also came and helped Kent buff the headlamp covers on our truck. Phil loves doing stuff like this and actually did this for our truck one before when we first got it. THANKS PHIL!

I also got to have lunch with this dear friend..Debbie is my prayer partner for my  large family and I pray for hers too. Thanks Debbie for a nice long visit and prayer time together!

We got to go to lunch with Dallas and Kaye. Here is a picture of us with them and Phil and Carol. Good friends.

Image

We had two couples over to our house for dinner which was really nice too.  And we had several good visits with our dear friend Aktar. She made us a very delicious dinner right before we left too. And sent the leftovers with us for “down the road” good eating!

Image

We had decided to leave on a certain day. It actually was my birthday. I was ready to move but didn’t want to spend my birthday that way…So God intervened. It rained for two days and nights. It was very soggy on the grass where we were parked. We were concerned that we might get stuck and would for sure tear up our friend’s lawn. SOOO we stayed put and I got to do all kinds of fun things for my birthday!!

So watch for the next blog about my birthday…

Love, Jan
