Ryan and Abbys Visit in June

Ryan and Abby came for a visit last month, so of course we did the Yellowstone trip since Abby had never been there before. Abby tried very hard to get me a good picture of a moose. They followed him to the river but never got quite the right shot. Maybe next trip to Yellowstone!! We saw lots of wildlife, besides our family, moose, elk, buffalo,deer and three bears!!  We sort of ate our way through the park (we had a bit of junk food) but had a great time.  
Their trip was short but sweet (except for not having their suitcases) in on Tuesday gone by Thursday. We take what we can get and enjoy every minute of it!
Ryan even got in on a little construction in the basement. Which is moving along quite nicely, Steve is running the wiring now.

For those of you asking about Ruth, I thought I should give you an update. After just two weeks she is almost completely healed. She still has a small scab on her lip and you can still see the marks under her cheek and on her shoulder where her skin was rubbed off.  For quite a while she would wear her hat so low on her face that no one could see it!! Now she still wears her hat but just to keep the sun off, so she doesn't scar. Thanks for the prayers and the calls and comments on the blog, she appreciated them. Here's a new photo so you can see for yourself, God did a pretty amazing job with our bodies that they heal so fast!!
