Sleepover at the Mission Home–The Dalles Zone comes to town!

2017-1-23-the-dalles-sleepover-3Because The Dalles Zone could not get through the bad weather last week for the Yakima Zone Conference, we determined to get them to the Wenatchee conference this week.  So this evening the 16 members of The Dalles Zone drove up to Yakima (2 hours), arriving here at about 8:30 p.m.  We had a big pot of vegetable beef soup on the stove, oranges, apples, warm cookies and apple cake waiting.  The fun began as they arrived.2017-1-23-the-dalles-sleepover-62017-1-23-the-dalles-sleepover-72017-1-23-the-dalles-sleepover-82017-1-23-the-dalles-sleepover-92017-1-23-the-dalles-sleepover-52017-1-23-the-dalles-sleepover-132017-1-23-the-dalles-sleepover-142017-1-23-the-dalles-sleepover-152017-1-23-the-dalles-sleepover-172017-1-23-the-dalles-sleepover-192017-1-23-the-dalles-sleepover-202017-1-23-the-dalles-sleepover-212017-1-23-the-dalles-sleepover-22
