We stayed Friday night in Ringwood, NJ at the house of Laura Anfang, a good friend of both of ours from Cedarville.  Having not seen each other in over a year, we had a lot to catch up on!  Laura is in her first year as a first grade teacher and engaged to the wonderful Mr. Joel Geer. 

Saturday morning, we had the delight of spending time with them both.  We went apple picking at an orchard across the state border in NY.  Then we had lunch - some GREAT NJ pizza, before heading out.

We hope this will not be the last time we see the Anfangs.  Laura and her parents were wonderful hosts and we enjoyed every minute with them.

After leaving Ringwood, we stopped n Wayne, NJ at the hotel of our friends, Steve and Ashley.  This is their frst year with Camfel, and over training, we really clicked on some good levels.  We really appreciate their friendship, so spending 3 or 4 hours in the Ramada lobby just catching up was greatly needed.  It is always refreshing to meet up with friends who are living this same silly life and doing this same crazy job.  Sharing the difficulties helps us feel not-so-alone.  Sharing the success stories helps us all remember why we're here.  We can't wait till we can see them again, but the time we did have definitly energized us for now.

But, wait, there's more!  We stayed Saturday night and Sunday morning with Pam and Harold Kildow, very good friends of Mike's family.  They are such gracious hosts, and genuinely fun people to hang out with!

Well, we had a blast of a weekend, seeing so many people.  We try to soak up the time we have with friends to make up for all the time it's just us on the road.  Thanks, guys, for being so awesome.  :)
