rest of our trip

Sorry all you blog checkers, It's been a while! We've been home nearly 2 weeks now, but here are a few more pics from our trip:
The seven grandkids
The grandparents, William, and David spent a day at the Kennedy Space Center. It just happened to be the day the space shuttle Endeavour was landing there after 16 days in space! They heard the very loud sonic boom as it came in, then on a tour to view the launch pad, they past it being towed in after landing!
The second Sunday there, everyone except for our family drove down to Naples to attend Pastor Kevin's church. William preached and introduced them to their ministry in Mexico. After that service, he and Katie spoke at a Hispanic church as well. We decided not to go because it was a three hour drive one way. That would have been hard on the kids, especially with Ashlen who screams on long drives! This next picture is not real good, (that's a spot on the lens covering Pastor Kevin's face) but it shows the whole group, who had lunch together, and then went to a nice beach. Jasen Wickert was also there visiting.

Our family attended a nice Assembly of God church nearby, then spent the day around the pool. It was really nice to have a whole day just as a family- something that rarely happens! toward the end of the trip the kids became much more brave in the water. Even Logan and Brennen, who wouldn't go in for a long time, were jumping in (with someone to catch them)!
We had a nice but long flight back, and Ashlen didn't scream this time! All the kids did very well. It was a wonderful trip!
