Oh I am a week behind in blogging. : ) Sorry guys!

Here are some shots from NY. We have a LOVELY time in New York. What a blessed weekend!

We had some BRAVE friends (really awesome to boot, too) who were game to play bells with us with 1/2 hour rehearsal time. I will say the rehearsal was more fun then the performance. ^_^ We have footage but I'm afraid we will not be sharing that any time soon! :D

Firing Line duet!

Peter. :)

Mom singing and playing!

Bells, bells, bells!

Thank you to Abigail Dart for the photos!

We had a great time around food and fellowship after the concert...

Vincent talking with Mike as they were stringing lights..

Hm...Jon up a tree...

We did some fun things with the Darts, including weeding...

Family photo time. Yes, it was time for an updated "family photo" :) Looking forward to September. ^_^

Then....we visited! Well, we didn't visit the website but the actual PLACE. ;)

The audience, that was inside...

the bus and cars...out side...

Special thanks to Cherilyn Wise for the photos below!

And, afterward we had a time of fellowship greeting our friends and new friends! What a blessing! Thank you all for coming. : )

Meeting and talking with the Puffers. :)

This is what we look like in between songs backstage. : P :D

Well, we had two more concerts the next day. Little Valley folks - big hi to you guys!
Love you all!

I don't have too many photos of the concerts...
but friends and some portrait practice with mom and Daniel...

After the concert we went to start the bus and it would not air up! The Lord really lets us break down in the right spots. We had no more concert and we were able to plug the bus in at the church for AC. It was a blessing to be off again of course the next day when we had a makeshift fix until we could get home.

Well, I guess that's all for now. : ) Praise God for all His wonderful blessings!

They will tell of the power of your awesome works,
and I will proclaim your great deeds.

They will celebrate your abundant goodness
and joyfully sing of your righteousness.

Psalm 145:6 & 7 NIV

[Hannah and her baby rabbit this spring]

Happy Birthday....already! Hannah's turning the first double digit twin know 11!! We are so blessed to have Hannah in our family. <3

Oh wow! What a busy and blessed weekend we have had! Before we dive into that...I'm already behind on blogging about LAST weekend. :)

From the pole barn in Maine...

Oh and the rain is very loud on that metal roof. Wowzers. It totally interrupted sound check!

I'm glad I wasn't in charge of all that. :)

Sound check for the LaClaires. Dad did all the sound for the bluegrass groups. (All two of them. :))

Lots of SOUND! ; )

A Denny sound check...where is everyone?!

There they are!

We had lots of group that day but I didn't get photos of each one....

THanks to our friends for getting a couple of us...

The day closed with a gorgeous sun set

.....and swimming in the river!

Next day we said goodbye to all our Mainiac friends... : (

Thank you all who made our visit to Maine special and blessed!

Home Sweet Home! But, not for long. ; )

We had a delightful weekend in Maine. Wow. What a blessing. We are just so thankful for the folks who hosted us along the way! You guys are a blessing.

Here are a few snap shots of the weekend (which started Thursday!)

Our new driver??? Hannah is growing up quickly but not THAT quickly! :)

Traffic. This is going to Maine after all. ;)

The church we stayed at the first night. The mosquitoes were sure to give us a prompt welcome. : )

THE 80th birthday party by the trout pond.

Nathan's first of many!


The morning of the festival is RAIN cats and dogs. PTL it did not last and cleared up and didn't rain again all day. Huge blessing!! The rain on the roof made it impossible to hear anything inside.

Hello! Trust you all had a nice weekend and are possibly enjoyed the 'day off' today!

We were blessed to do a joint concert with the one and only Bob Thompson Saturday evening! He's not on-line or on youtube as I can see, but his rich vocals and totally blessed way of speaking was an encouragement to us and to those around us we trust.

Have a great week!
