My friend Gwyn is home!!!! It's not for long, but she's home!!

Gwyn and her family have been in Costa Rica for the past year at language school learning Spanish. They are in route to the Dominican Republic to work at an orphanage - Restoration Ranch. But, I can't even think about that right now. She's here for several weeks and I just want to enjoy the time we have together.

Today we spent the whole day alone together. Guess we probably haven't done that ever (maybe in high school???). It was so nice to be able to talk about everything under the sun. We weren't interrupted or had to spell out any secrets!! :-)

It was such a nice day. We went out to lunch and shared some yummy cheese fries!! We're planning her birthday outing soon. Shay's promised one more day of keeping the children for her so we can go and celebrate her.

I can't believe I didn't get any pictures, next time!! They are off for a fun late afternoon at the dentist now. Gotta get everything checked up well before they leave the country again.

Here is a picture of the house they are gonna live in at the DR...

Here is the front of the house. No worries about the children running out and playing in the road huh? :-) Gwyn, gotta do something about that Clemson orange though!!!!

Living room and dining room - I think this is going to be such a beautiful house for them. I especially love all the arches and angles. Gwyn will fix it up beautifully I know!!!

Kitchen - way bigger than the little kitchen she had in Costa Rica.

Backyard - what do you call it with no yard? Back area? Lots of room for riding toys!!!

Here's a link if you are interested in checking out the progress of the Restoration Ranch.
