Trip to Texas

Last weekend some of us took a quick trip to Texas for Samuel Schatte and Esther Hale's wedding.

Crossing the state line

We stayed with Mr. and Mrs. Beeman, and really enjoyed the time we spent visiting with them!  (But we didn't get any pictures there.)  :(

The first evening we were in TX, we and Mrs. Beeman went over to visit the younger Beemans.  We had fun with these sweet kiddos and their mama (their daddy was still at work).

The next morning we went to the church to help get ready for the wedding.  It was really nice to visit with several friends while we worked.

When we were finished at the church, we went to the Hales' to visit and to play with their little cousins.

Amy and little Bobby came over,too.
