An Evening with the Bates

This past Saturday evening is a great memory for the Paine Family. The Bate’s family had come to Chicago to attend the IBLP Valentines Banquet and we had the privilege of having them over for dinner before they left for Tennessee.


Though our times was very short, we enjoyed it immensely with a energetic game of catch phrase. Tennessee is looking like a great place to visit. =)
