Isn't it terrible when people make promises that they don't keep? Guilty here! I promised pictures of our vacation when we got back and never did what I said I would do. And I have no really good excuse, so please forgive. And not only that, but I'm going to cheat because I'm lazy--too lazy to do the uploading to Blogger myself.
I only uploaded this one picture of the lovely place which was the vacation home for a week for my husband and me, and our daughter Neesie, and our daughter Bev and her husband and their two little ones. It was a blessed place to be for all of us. This house is situated on the back of a lovely horse farm (our view was wonderful) with woods behind us where we saw deer in the mornings and evenings and other wildlife. It's strategically located in Frederick County, MD, so that we were able to travel to Washington, D.C. one day (via the Metro train); Gettysburg, Pa on another day (my favorite trip); and to Annapolis to the Naval Academy on another day. We did other little fun things, ate big meals at the vacation house, and went to eat out a few times. Also, we got to worship at a sister church with some old friends on that Sunday.
I think for all of us, however, our favorite times were when we we spent cozy hours at the house. God was gracious to give us this time to rest and have fun both. And for the cheating part: Since Neesie had already posted photos on her blog I thought I'd link to her post so that you could see a few more pictures. There you'll see pictures of some of the horses--we fell in love with them --and Neesie even got to help out with their care and feeding one morning! Horses have been dear to her heart since a little girl, so that was special. Please go see!
