Zoe’s one wish in the US was to see pandas. I searched the Internet to figure out if we would be near any. Turns out we would, so off we went to zoo Atlanta!
Not only did we see pandas, we saw tons of fascinating birds at the bird show. We also saw elephants, all sorts of monkeys and apes, and Haddies favorite, flamingoes!
We have gone to Tulsa, Alabama to visit several sets of friends. We’ve driven to Florida for meetings and training. We’ve gone to a super cool place called Jekyl island and scoured the beach for sharks teeth at 5am with flashlights.
It was so great seeing old friends! It’s been so long!
My kids had their first experience at the “penny arcade.” They had a blast! Zoe got enough tickets to buy a bamboo! Hadassah rode every kid ride she could!
Apparently all we took pictures of was the baby riding a million rides. We did lots of other fun games. It was like my whole childhood in two hours for them hahaha.
Drove and drove from Washington you Colorado to catch some old friends. So sweet seeing them again! The kids had such a good time. Here are some pics of the falls leaves along the way.
Stopped by Moody Aviation to eat lunch with old friends and eat lunch with friends.
Visited with some more friends and got another tour! This time of an airplane manufacturing company. It was sweet.
It’s been so fun seeing all the fall colors! The most shocking were the vines on the freeway! Check it out!
We came to the corner of the US to visit friends from Cameroon. When we go on furlough we also miss our friends from Cameroon. It is also very fun to see them in their original context. We got in last night. Today we went hiking. Tomorrow is church with them which will be so fun.
After we hiked we went down to the beach and searched for crabs. Easy to find! Then we went home and cooked clams and muscles that we bought on the beach. Pacific Northwest!!!! Wow!!!! Never tried a clam and muscle before. Yumm
We spent a couple days with some relatives of a friend. I can now also call them friends. Such fantastic people. The kids had so much fun!!! Unfortunately we had the kind of fun where we acted so silly and agreed that no pictures would be posted hahaha. I can add a group picture when I get it.
We decided to drive up the coast a ways thanks to a recommendation from a friend. So far it is well worth it!!!!
Special shout out to Mark who went trail running with me this morning.
