Just thought you might like to see a few other things we got to do while we were in the states for the CBF General Assembly at the end of June and first few days of July.
We visited with Tony and Ricki Buesing in Dahlonega the last few days we were in the states. Darrell, Kathy, and Alex Smith moved to the Atlanta area when they resigned from CBF in June, and they met us at the Buesing's place that weekend. Here are a few pictures of our time together in Dahlonega, too. Thanks, Tony & Ricki, for a wonderful meal and a great time of visiting together!!!
In the living/dining room --- trying to decide the best way to get to Nashville (Darrell, Kathy & Alex were headed to see Darrell's folks the next day).
We enjoyed a fabulous steak dinner (with all the trimmings) -- great food,
Tony & Ricki !!!
We all spent the night and headed out the next morning early (July 4th).
Beautiful yard (with goldfish pond)!!!
We returned to Lawrenceville for July 4th celebration. Arville's brother and his wife (Derrell & Iris) and their whole family were there. We always have a great time at their house (our home away from home while we are in the Atlanta area). They have 3 children 4 grandchildren - they all live in the Atlanta area. Their younger daughter, her husband and their daughter are living in our house in Talmo while we are here.
Here are some pictures of our time with them:
