Lemon takes the cake

It’s Sunday afternoon and were are cruising down Interstate 70, heading for Hocking Hills in Ohio. We have another 230 miles until our arrival. Yes, we’re traveling again. We’re taking the whole family; there was no one we wanted to leave back with a babysitter, so all seven of us packed up for our three-day trip to Daniel’s family gathering in a large cabin tucked into the hills of Logan, Ohio.

A Yoder New Year

How is everyone? Ready to settle down after the holidays and have a quieter schedule? I know winter does tend to be long and cold and gray, but I do enjoy having less work with not having a garden to care for or a yard to look after.

They love spending time outdoors. In fact Jesse has shed many a tear when he couldn’t go out with daddy to feed the piggies. Whether it’s 90 or 20 degrees Jesse and Rayni both just thrive on being outside.
