We are still enjoying wonderful spring weather. We have gorgeous days, but it does seem to rain alot too. Every week it seems there are at least a few rainy days. I guess that is why everything looks so great once it quits raining.

The place we found is the Falls River Inn and we enjoyed a great burger and ice cream there. It is a stop for many who hike or bike the Great Alleghenny Passage which goes from Pittsburgh to Washington DC. We plan to return to Ohiopyle soon and try hiking or biking at least one section of the trail.

Facetime with our very youngest grandchild, Dawson and his family. He was just barely starting to stand when we left and now he is walking (and running) all over the place. We also understand that he is a real maniac on his 'wiggle car' on the basketball court near their home.
He is one that will be changed the very most when we get home. As we Skype and see him on the phone though, he is very interested in talking and interacting with us... so we hope that he will somehow remember us or know us just a little bit a year from now. He is just SO cute and we think the next "tech" invention should be a way to give hugs and kisses through the phone or computer.
The minute that we start to miss our family though, we get cards from home with our grandchildren telling us about their desire to serve a mission one day. Then it all seems like we are really doing the right thing. We can see how much missionary work is blessing us and the young elders and sisters that we work with. It is an AMAZING AMAZING work!
One of my Mother's Day gifts was a plaque with this thought. We think it applys to families, missionaries, and everyone else too.
