Last Thursday Dear and I loaded up the car and headed East to enjoy some quality time with our kids. Our son-in-law Andrew wasn’t given time off of work to be able to join us and we missed him dearly.
On Friday (Halloween) we had a great hike on and above our son Dan’s property.
Our sons, Dan and Josh.

Laura took this photo of Katie on our hike with her phone.
We had some great views and enjoyed lots of fall color.
My son shared some apples from his trees with the deer.
We enjoyed hiking, shooting, shopping, eating, and playing games together. We marvel at the world God created for us to enjoy and the people He has put in our lives to love and encourage us on our journey.
Dear and I stayed at a farmhouse close to our son’s home so the kids could enjoy staying up late and sleeping in while Dear and I tucked in earlier and woke up early each day. On Saturday morning all the kids came over to the farmhouse to enjoy a meal that Dear and I prepared for them. We bought some local made sausages and Dear made his fabulous Swedish pancakes and we added eggs to round off the meal.
Later on Saturday Dan and Jamie made us their famous fish tacos with their home made cabbage salsa. Dinner was so delicious. I’ll share the salsa recipe soon on Mennonite Girls Can cook. I’m so sad I didn’t take one photo of all the good eats we had.
We enjoyed three sunsets in Eastern Washington.

Before we headed back over the Cascades to Western Washington we enjoyed brunch together.
We consider any time we are able to spend with our kids quality time.
I’m linking this post to ABC Wednesday for the letter Q. Thank you to Denise Nesbitt and the ABC crew.
Q is for Quality time spent together with family.
