Memoriable Weekend – Monday May 28, 2007

This past weekend was a busy one around Joe O’s house! Their whole family minus Sandra and her family was here, along with my aunt Naomi and her family from VA Beach. My brother Henry came for the weekend too and we joined the others in the various activities they had going on.

Saturday a.m. most of the men and the older boys took the big boat down to the islands. A number of us ladies took the younger children over to Wes and Ginny’s pool. After that we joined the men who by then were at Lake Grace with the boat and jet ski.

A surprise 40th b.d. party at suppertime was planned for Stan and he was completely surprised! Gina managed to do all the prep without him getting suspicious. Of course, it helps that his b.d. isn’t until August!

Proof that there must be monkeys in the Overholt lineage. (This is one of those pictures that you look at years later and you remember how cool you felt doing something like this. Can you relate? )

There’s more than one way to stay awake when it’s long passed your bedtime. Doing this manuever is one of the ways.

Yes, they were so kind as to let us ladies have a turn. I must admit we wasted a lot of shells but it was fun anyway!

Lots of fun stuff going on all weekend. Makes me wonder how joy and pain can be going on at the same time. My heart goes out to my friends who are going through a painful time right now. You are in my thoughts and prayers! I pray for God to bring healing into your situation!! I love you!
