Summer Happenings

June was a BUSY month for us. It started out with my mother in-law and 2 of her kids flying in and was shortly followed by Hubby and I taking another trip to CA for a leadership conference. We rushed back home in time to finish Neighborhood Bible Time and VBS prep for our church.

A youth group from NC flew in to help us host both of those things and we really appreciated the help! Because of the extra hands we were able to do 3 different Bible Times during the day.

VBS was held during the evening and the kids had a BLAST! All in all there were about 70 different kids from our community reached.

My kiddos are growing and are into everything as usual. :) Callie is crawling and pulling up some now. Where did my tiny baby girl go?? We also have 2 birthdays to finish planning this month (July) and a conference in AZ to attend. Whew! :)
Hope everyone has and continues to have a safe summer!

Family Vacation (UT/AZ/CA)

Just got back late Friday night from our family vacation. 
Our first night was spent in Monument Valley, UT camping at Goulding's Campground.

 The boys loved being able to climb in the stage coach :)

 Hiking with Daddy

Our campsite was red dirt so everyone was covered in it. Myself included :)

 Night #2 was spent camping in Flagstaff, AZ

 On day #3 we arrived in CA. 
Clint enjoyed seeing the ocean.

 Clay just wanted to climb the rocks.

 Cade's first time at any ocean.

18 weeks pregnant......almost halfway there!!

My sweet Callie.

Walking along the harbor.


Day #4 was spent at the San Diego Zoo

Our two Ergo baby carriers and umbrella stroller came in REAL handy ;)


 Clint enjoyed climbing every animal statue he could find :)

 The USS Midway

12 Days of Christmas in NM #10

Reading the Christmas story from the Bible before opening presents this morning.

"Born To Die"

On the night Christ was born,
Just before break of morn,
As the stars in the sky were fading,
O'er the place where He lay, 
Fell a shadow cold and gray
Of a cross that would humble a King.

Jesus knew when he came
He would suffer in shame;
He could feel every pain and sorrow.
But He left Paradise,
With His blood He paid the price--
My redemption to Jesus I owe.

From his throne Jesus came,
Laid aside Heaven's fame
In exchange for the cross of Calv'ry;
For my gain suffered loss,
For my sin He bore the cross--
He was wounded and I was set free.

Dearest Lord, evermore
May Thy cross I adore
As I follow the path to Calv'ry;
Of Thy death I partake,
My ambition I forsake--
All my will I surrender to Thee.


Born to die upon Calvary,
Jesus suffered my sin to forgive;
Born to die upon Calvary,
He was wounded that I might live.
