for Trips to the Lake, BBQs, Camps, and Hospitality

The end of June through mid-July had us busy with short day trips, Family Camp, and opening our home.

At the end of June, we spent a day at Lake Roosevelt. It was a day for enjoying our corner of creation and giving thanks to our Great Creator, visiting with one another, learning a little from the Park Ranger about flooding, swimming in the ice cold water!, and having some fun on the monkey bars!

July found us enjoying a barbeque with old friends and new faces which included a Pie Eating Contest and Ultimate Water Balloon. We then drove along the river in search of fireworks for our own show after the 4th...and then we were treated to 20-minutes of sky pyrotechnics over the Columbia River.

Light Sabres!!!!

I will post more pictures from Family Camp and our time of fellowship and Hospitality...as soon as they get put on the computer!

For now, as I got to reflect on the past couple of weeks as I was posting the pictures - I'm just amazed again how wonderful, gracious, loving, and kind our Lord truly is!!! We truly taste a bit of heaven on earth as He bestows upon us blessing upon blessing. Enjoying His creation, His people, and His presence - even in the 'everyday', especially in the 'everyday' - it is more than I am capable of expressing in words. He truly is our all in all!
