Deputation Continued

Deputation has been going very well. It's been a lot of fun seeing our friends and family. The churches have been so supportive. The Bible Methodist of Tennessee church in Powellsville, Ohio gave both of the boys toys. What a blessing!
Happy for his presents!
We try to spice up our long hour rides by stopping by interesting things to see and do. We made a stop off at Marblehead, Ohio near Lake Erie. There is a beautiful lighthouse there that is still in use. This house is called the "Keepers House", built back in the 1800's by the first man who kept the lighthouse.
Benajah and Rachel Wolcott the first keepers of the lighthouse.
The beautiful lighthouse.
Enjoying Lake Erie.
What a wonderful view.
We also visited Johnson's Island out in the lake where during the civil war confederate officials were imprisoned. The prison was dismantled but there is still a cemetery that is open to the public.
Dreaming about the next stop, uncle Tim's and Aunt Connie's house.
 Having fun with uncle Tim on the golf cart.
The boys played while we waited for the juicy hamburgers to grill.
Hannah got to drive her dream car, a red corvette convertible!
On our way to Mahaffey, Pa for a service we made a quick stop in Punxsutawney, famous for Phil the groundhog who "predicts" whether or not we will have another six weeks of winter or if spring is just around the corner.
Punxsutawney Phil was asleep when we stopped by to see him.
A bigger version of Phil.
Back to some of my ol'e stomping grounds. I made some great memories in Mahaffey, Pa.
Joseph took a few shots on uncle Den's new pistol.
Before leaving Mahaffey we took the boys to grandma and grandpa Hoch's grave. Daniel didn't have the privilege of ever meeting them but Joseph remembers grammy Hoch. We still have one of her hand made quilts that she made for me when I was just a little boy.



Oh where is the like button :)

I'm glad you all are able to spend time with family/friends and make memories just the 4 of you in your travels.

Keep safe and God bless you all!!
