Our dear friends the Bankesters came for a week-long visit. We had a string of lovely days together. They stayed at Mama and Dad's, but the kids and I would walk over every morning after breakfast and Caleb would come after work. Talking and laughing, good food and good music.
Greta found a special friend to read stories to her!

The Bankesters' music is really amazing. Bluegrass, beautiful harmonies, talented pickin' and fiddlin'. Oh, it is such a pleasure to listen to! (You can check out their new cd HERE.) One evening we drove to the city to hear them play a concert at Nechville Banjos. A great evening.

On Thursday evening they did a concert for us here in town.
(Mama had the idea to use records on the wall behind the stage--delightful!)
All too soon it was time for them to pack up the vehicles again and drive back home. Until next time, friends!
