On Saturday, March 30th, the Girotti family from Virginia came for a visit. We met half of the Girotti family at the NCFIC conference this past October. They were travelling down to South Carolina to pick up their grandmother, so decided to stop in! We thoroughly enjoyed having them at our house, and we were glad that we were able to finally meet the rest of their family!
Mrs. Girotti made us this lovely appliqued towel. It has already seen much use!
We gave the Girotti's a tour of our farm and then took them down to the dairy where each of them tried milking! They all did a wonderful job! It's too bad that I didn't have my camera with me, but Mrs. Girotti posted a few on her blog over at Mountain Musings as well as here

Once we were done in the dairy, the Girotti's shared dinner with us and brought us delicious cookies for dessert!

After dinner, we all moved into the living room where we had a wonderful time of fellowship, music and laughter. Sorry for the blurry photos...
I failed to get a family photo of the Girotti family while they were here, so I copied this one off of their blog.

The Girottis joined us for church the next day, Easter Sunday, but unfortuanately I don't have any pictures of that either. (I seem to have forgotten my camera a lot!) We had a lovely time visiting with the Girotti family and we're so glad that they came to see us.
