Day off from work

Here are a few pictures that I took with my cell phone on my day off. We went with Donnie and Wendy to Lake Placid for Irma Hudson's committal service. We went early and spent some time walking on Main Street and then went and sat by the water of Mirror Lake. It was a very beautiful day. Sorry the quality isn't the greatest.

Jordan came to visit

The kids came over this evening because they ran out of water and needed showers and to wash some clothes. I just thought that I needed some pictures of Jordan to put on the blog. As you can see they ended up giving him the squirt gun and he was having a grand old time with that.

Richland Holiness Camp (Our vacation)

Rachel and I spent our vacation doing the cooking for Richland Camp in Richland, NY. This first picture is of the tabernacle building where the services were held. The little building next to that is the bookstore with a room above it for someone to stay in. The second picture is of the office on the first floor and the girls dorm on the second floor.

This building is the dining hall. The kitchen was on the back side of this building. That is where we spent most of our time. The second floor has rooms but they are no longer used. The next picture is looking toward where people parked their campers. There are a lot of little two storied cabins here on the grounds.

This is looking across the grounds the other way past the tabernacle. On the left is the pavilion where the young people hang out. The next picture is the cabin that we got to stay in. The accommodations were nice. It was air conditioned, had a shower and sink. We still had to walk to the restrooms that were behind the office building.

These are some interior views of the cabin.

These pictures were taken inside of the tabernacle building. The building was dedicated in 1912. It is very interestingly built. If you don't know where Richland is, it is located close to Pulaski, NY, which is in the snow belt region along Lake Ontario. This building has withstood many snowstorms over the last 100 years. We cooked here 8 years ago, and they had just replaced the kitchen roof because it had collapsed under the snow in the winter. They get a lot of snow in this area.

We had a very enjoyable time there. We got to see a lot of our old friends and made some new ones. We have been invited back to cook again next year. Rachel figured up that there were 2087 meals served, that's a lot of food!

Rachel's new toy!

Here are some pictures of the new van that we got. It is a 2007 Chrysler Town and Country touring van. It is really nice and we got a great deal on it. It has stow and go seats. I know the former owners and they took very good care of this van and traded for a new one. It is the same color as Rachel's sister Marilyn's van.

I see you!

Jordan wanted to get his picture taken, but he just kept getting closer to the camera. Nice and close!

Just a few pictures

Here are a couple of pictures of Jordan. He is feeling better now. He was quite the live-wire the evening they were here. He was up and down and all around.
