Our Dallas friends, Dave and Gloria Furman, stopped in last night on their way home from a 7- week journey of the United States as they raised support for the mission field. Our girls were finally able to meet and now Dealey (the Maples' son) has a picture of his girlfriends together. Aliza is a total doll, with the most gorgeous blue eyes and infectious smile. Dave and Gloria have enjoyed their travels, but are very ready to be back in one place. We had a low-key dinner here, then headed to eat Oberweis ice-cream (Gloria has to have ice-cream every night). We talked until late in the evening, then went to bed. This morning, we took them on our ritual Saturday morning walk to Starbucks, where we sipped our Fraps and Americanos and talked more about parenting, marriage, church, missions, and life. As always, it's wonderful to see friends and catch up in person. Here are a few shots of our time together.
