New Friends - Nature - Family

As our mission nears it's end, new missionaries have arrived to serve the Lord and move the work forward.  It was great working with the Martins but we've now been given the opportunity to meet and work with Elder and Sister Dalton, as well as Elder and Sister Booker.  Elder and Sister Booker are CES missionaries replacing the Martins.  Elder and Sister Dalton are working with us in the area of records preservation.

We're always amazed by the beauty of the natural surroundings we are experiencing in Florida.  The following pictures were taken during recent walks in a neighborhood near our apartment complex.

During the last month of our mission, we were surprised to learn that we were getting visitors!  Two of our children were able to bring their families to Florida for a visit during the 4th of July week.  It was a great celebration for us!

Everyone wants to see gators! Although hot summer days makes gator hunting a bit of a challenge, we were successful on both trips.

Look at those giant spiders!

The weather was "really" hot and thus the swimming pool was an major attraction!

We found some time to grab a meal with Jason and Staysee's family during their visit. Kamren wasn't so sure about taking a bite of grandpa's octopus.

Melissa's family was able to spend two days with us and thus we had the opportunity to visit the Butterfly Rain Forest at the University of Florida's Natural History Museum.

Elder Wolff also had an opportunity to hunt toads, lizards and minnows with a young scientist, Makai.

Our mission has been a great experience, but we look forward to going home and spending time with family and friends as well as planning the next great adventure in our lives together.
