What do you get when you put together the Winslow family, the Lowman family, and the Bennett family??---25 kids and 3 grown ups all having a great day!

 That's right...and it was a great day!

Once a month we try and get together with two of our favorite families--the Bennetts and the Lowmans. In December we did gingerbread houses at the Bennett's home in Raymond. That was awesome! In January we got together for a day of winter fun at the Lowman's home, also in Raymond. In February and March we  all went to the New Bible Conference Homeschool Snow Days in Rumney. That was wonderful! So...April was my turn to host here in Barnstead! We had a wonderful day!

We started the day with a long walk to a little beach and playground. The kids all had a blast! Back at home we had a make your own taco lunch! That was yummy! Cindy made homemade tortillas and everyone thought those were great! We had icecream cones and cake and Cindy's now famous whoopie pies for dessert!

The kids enjoyed some trampoline time and tractor rides by Edward after lunch! The Bennetts stayed for supper, which was really nice, too! We had a great game of All in the Family after supper! Benjamin Bennett won with the name "Jack" one remembered his name. 

A great day was had by all! Next get together is at the Bennett's in May!! These dear friends that we have had for the past 14 years or so. Such sweet Christian fellowship! It's so amazing to stay in touch and love on one another!
The girls had so much fun together....left to right...Naomi, Grace, Chelsea, and Maddie

What do you get when you have pails and shovels water, and a sunny day?? Great fun!

There was a wonderful playground, and the tire swing as you will see was a BIG hit!

Rosie had a great time, too!

Some were tired on the 1.5 mile walk home!

Just had to put a photo of the 3 big vans in my driveway!

A braiding party--Grace, then Madelyn, then Lilly.

Thank you Edward for the tractor rides!! They were great!

Everyone had fun on the trampoline and playground, too!

The Bennetts joined us for dinner. Such wonderful fellowship!

We ended the day with a rousing game of All in the Family--With names like Aunt Ida, Vay, Bay, Joshua 24:15, I love Nicole, Reebok, Luke Lego, Batman, Superman, and Callie to name a few!

We love you Bennett and Lowman families!
