A Stoll Stew
(funny that we call it that, only a select few carry the last name Stoll - but it is where it all began)
The Stoll family gathered for a fall stew while some family was in from Kansas.
We met at the Odon Park and the boys had fun with their cousins.
Joe, Andre, Tyson, Sam and AJ (AJ twin Grace was in the mix, too) and Shaylee too.
This was a small portion of the Stoll clan, conversation is never hard to come by!
The campfire stew and grilled sausage/hot dogs
Grandma Jean had to sacrifice for a sample!
The photo below is just after Sam decided he might like to know these cousins from Kansas, (Joe had been playing for some time already) we didn't see him the rest of the evening and then they asked when we could go to Kansas to see their house. Then, the evening didn't seem long enough.
Treasured times when your own kids play with your cousins kids.
I remember the first time I met Dan's cousin Trina (their mama), they are only weeks apart in age.
We felt like instant friends and we were able to meet their sweet Selah this trip, too.
So thankful for this close knit family!
