~Good Times~

I can’t believe how fast this summer is going.  I am having so much fun with Gabriel and Becky!  (Although, there are some days where August 6 seems years away)  We’ve had some great times over the past couple of weeks from another beach trip, to the aquarium, a couple of trips to Splash, girls night out, pool time, fireworks and just plain old family game nights.  Here are a few pictures from a couple of our ventures. 

*****Saddle Ridge Ranch*****

Our VBS theme for this year……. I signed up for the 3 to 4 year old class…….wheeeewww, that’s all I can say.  I had wonderful help but when you average 22 to 24 per night, and your own child, well, you can imagine.  BUT I thank God every night for such a great group of children so eager to learn about Christ!  We had a great time and the kids hated to see it come to an end!

***** Amelia Island*****

Ashton went with us to AI and I don’t think she knew what she was signing up for :0)  We had a couple of “lights out” episodes during the trip but thank goodness for cell phone lights and Spongebob books! 

Of course we had to make it to the premiere of ECLIPSE!  Oh man it was awesome~ All Ashton could say was “there was a WHOLE lot of JACOB”.  It was so good, may have to go back and see it again.

***** Peachtree City *****

We hit the ATL for the 4th for a great parade, fireworks and quality time with the Brannen’s!  We had an awesome time with them.  On Sunday, we made our first trip to the aquarium.  It was so neat and there were so many creatures to see.  You could see some of God’s wonderful handy work.  It’s just amazing to see some of his beautiful creations in motion.

And of course there are days when we do nothing but this……. Who needs to travel when you have free entertainment like this at home :-)IMG_5483
