Lots to do in the 'shoe!

Okay, I completley stole the title of this post from Deborah's blog title.
We had a great time in Muleshoe and Roscoe. We were able to spend a little time with Koti and Sully and see their beautiful new house and let the boys play. Then we headed to Muleshoe for a few days of fun on the farm (and a little playing around in town, too). We had the best time with Gary and Hollye and miss them so much already.
Jonathan got his very first haircut from Curtis, the barber in Muleshoe and a good friend from church up there. Jonathan did great. We were all sure it would be a wild ride for him, but it was just the opposite. He was such a good boy. Now he looks so grown up!
We of course made a pilgrimage back to Leal's for some great food. It is also the perfect place to run into just about everybody.
We caught up with the Newberrys and Todd showed us around the new section of his school as well as David's old school. We all looked fabulous in our hard hats.
We had the best weather on Wednesday and were able to just play all afternoon on the farm at Gary's & Hollye's. From flying kites, to riding the horse and four-wheeler, the boys had such a great time. We realized Benjamin could just as easily be a farm boy as the city boy we have now turned him into! He loved every part of it! Especially the barn. So funny.
We tried to make sure we were in town on a church day so we could see all of our friends up there. It made us tear up having to tell everybody both hello and goodbye again so quickly. I think Benjamin enjoyed "running the ramp" again, too. Lots of sweet, sweet people at that church that we love so very much.
All in all, it was a wonderful trip. I know we didn't get to see a lot of you since it was Spring Break for you, too. But we thought about each and every one of you as we retraced our old paths around town. Love and hugs to ALL the Mules. We miss you.
