So Good to see you Longview

The African Caldwells are here to visit!!!
Rusty, Ann and Hallie got back to America about two weeks ago, so it was about time that we all got together as a family to celebrate their homecoming. They are missionaries in Nomba, Mozambique; and do wonderful things so make sure to check out the link to their blog on the side.
We traveled to Longview last weekend to see friends and lots of family. It was so wonderful to be back and see so many familiar faces. It made us miss everyone so so so so so so so Much!!!!!! Ok here is your Warning... There are a ton of pictures so get ready:)
Here are Russ, Ann, and Hallie
Rusty showed the family some pictures and explained projects they have going on their farm.
After Lunch on Sunday the Aunts had an Easter egg hunt for the kids. Here they are hunting and all lined up on the porch with their treasures. (Back L to R: Emily, Grant, Alyssa; Front L to R: Hallie, Cole, William, Cade, Amelia)
Aunt Carrol and Ann Having Fun.
Cade with his Easter Eggs. He didn't quite grasp the idea of putting the eggs in the bag, so instead he would carry one egg in each hand until he found another egg and then he threw one down and picked up the new one. Very Cute.
The Family at the Big Hunt. :)
William enjoying Aunt Carrol's toys.

Hallie shows off her new clothes. She it a typical girl and wanted to put them all on as soon as she got them.

After a fun and exciting weekend, The ride home speaks for its self!
To all of our friend we saw, " It was so wonderful to see you all and to get a few hugs and some much needed familiar smiles. Your families are ever changing and we miss you all so much."
To all the friends we didn't see, "We hope to see you all soon. Sorry we missed you! I hope that next time we can stay longer and visit everyone"
To Rusty and Ann: Rusty spoke on Sunday morning and I have to say it was one of the most moving things I have heard. " Thank you Rusty and Ann for opening your hearts and souls to the Lords work. Thank you for sharing your life stories and being such an inspiration to all of us. You are in our constant prayer, May God Continue to Bless you and Keep you! We love you.
Enjoy your Vacation:) "
