Finding Fun in Royal City

Hello everyone!

We’ve spent a few weeks here in Royal City and it has just FLOWN by. It’s dark by the time Geoff is done with work, so most of our fun things happen over the weekend. Although it doesn’t feel like we’ve done a lot, the pictures say otherwise.

Picking grapes for my cousins wine. I think he’s making it in to a Riesling?

It’s been a fun few weeks. We’ve gotten a lot done work-wise and are really excited to go on vacation. Yes, through this whole trip Geoff hasn’t taken any vacation time so we are heading off to use it all up!

We are still praying about where we should be and are getting closer to a decision. We will let everyone know when we come to a final decision!
