In just a few days, we leave for Oklahoma for Nationals.....can someone say "excited"?!? As a result, I will most likely be absent from here for the next couple of weeks. Unless they have really good wi-fi at the show grounds.
That said, I wanted to post a quick update of our recent life. I've been waiting and waiting...trying to find time to edit these pictures, but it's not happening. So, some are edited, some are not - just be a wonderful person and ignore the imperfections.
I do have one "real" (as in deep, serious) post that I would *love* to finish and post before we leave, but I have my doubts.
Starting back in June.....annual church campout! Only a couple families got to go, but it was a blast and very special :)
Did some more surfing :) No better way to stay cool, I tell you!!
Moving on to July......went on an incredibly fun hike with a great friend. It was up in Sedona, and while the trail was rather hot, it ended at this gorgeous swimming hole with freezing water! One of my most favorite hikes ever!
August rolled around, and we celebrated the 20th birthday of this amazing friend...most often known as our oldest brother :)
This picture......I love it! The dear little thumb-sucker is head over heels in love with David, and is hard to pry away from him. To everyone that knows her, this is just so her. Thumb...David...awesome.
Yes, he is attempting to hunt crawdads with a bow. 'Nough said.
We also had a wonderful graduation/he's-a-man-now party for the same amazing young man. It was so wonderful to hear all the challenges and encouragement he was given by the men from our church. So grateful that God has placed us in a group of people who are trying to follow Him so wholeheartedly.
A dear friend from church got this last picture...and I was so thrilled to have it!! I have hardly any other action shots of myself, so this one was just priceless :)
