~Noah's hurt head, Our Date at the cabins, and... Is there going to be a tornado?~

I'm back again. Thanks for all the nice comments and for checking in with what is happening in our lives. This first picture is where our Noah fell at church and hurt his head...but thank the Lord he is just fine now. Since Friday, June 6, was our anniversary, we took a couple days this week and went up to some very NEAT cabins that our friends Dave and Regina Eckert own. We stayed in their cabin that was decorated in bears. Normally children are not allowed, but they made an exception with baby Elijah. We had such a great time enjoying our time together, the NICE cabin, the pretty country side, the mennonite country, and the town of Hillsboro, OH. If you and your sweetheart are looking for a fun place to get away, I would highly recommend our friends' cabins. Here is the website address: www.SerenityLogCabins.com
After we left those cabins we ran back to Cincinnati and got our other children and drove to Moline, Ill and had a deputation service on Wednesday night. We got to spend a couple nights with our dear friends the Boardmans. Luann just had foot surgery on May 22nd, but she didn't tell us that over the phone, for she knew that we wouldn't stay with them if we knew that. So between her not being able to walk, and me having a new baby, we were quite the "crippled" pair. =) But we had a GREAT time visiting with them, and with their friends that they had over while we were here.













The cabin has a nice private hot tub and fireplace on the back porch.




Luann is the one that taught me how to scrapbook. =) (So I did some while I was at her house. I got 11 pages done.)

On Thursday night after our dinner, the guys left to go somewhere, and just after they left we heard the tornado warning siren go off. So this is a picture of us hanging out in the basement waiting to see what was going to happen. There was lots of lightening, thunder, hail, wind blowing, and then later rain. Thank the Lord that there was NOT a tornado!!! (and I was able to go back upstairs and continue scrapbooking.) =D
Our guys weren't so fortunate...they got SOAKING wet while they were out. The poor Boardmans...water poured into their basement from the window wells. =(

Have a wonderful day. We are headed to Westfield, IN to spend the weekend with my parents and Laura and Daryl and their family. To any Dad's that might be reading my blog...Happy Father's Day! =)

Missed you all Wednesday night. I have your pics from the Tea I had for the church ladies when you get back. Have a blessed Father's Day!
Love, Aunt Nesi

P.S.
I did a little post for Elijah's Four Week Birthday on Wednesday- hard to believe, isn't it?

We were in Moline, IL on Wednesday and on Thursday until around 4 pm. It sounds like we got out just in time.

Have a wonderful weekend with your family!

Enjoyed the update, Heather. Ya'll are keeping so busy here in the states that it makes your Columbia stories seem not so out of the ordinary for you!

Dear Heather,

I would like to have your e-mail address, if you could send it to avila.fan@charter.net I promise no spamming or forwarding of guilt-manipulating e-mails. I just have a question not suited for this forum. Thanks!

You have such a lovely family! I'm happy to have found your blog again after my computer crashed and I lost my "favorites." I love looking at all your pictures. The picture of Elijah smiling for the first time is just precious! Love to all of you! Aunt Ellen

Hi Heather! It was so nice to get to meet you and visit with you at Luann's house a couple of weeks ago. What a sweet family you have. Hope all goes well for you as you prepare to return to Colombia. I will check back and keep posting. Talk to you later. Trisha D.
