Atlanta sneak peek....

We spent the last week down in Atlanta with Dennis on his annual business trip.  Our friend Robert, who worked with Dennis when we lived in NC had to attend the meeting last week as well so he brought his son, one of Isaiah's buddies.   We stayed at the same hotel that we stayed in last year, a lovely stay as always.  This year we spent most of our time at the pool.  We found a few free things to do to stay cool and occupy our time.  More on that later.

In the meantime, I will leave you with a photo taken of the guys at Dave and Busters restaurant/grown up arcade.

And this video of a guy on one of those dance games.  He had to watch the screen and step on the lighted floor color pattern  and scored PERFECTS every time!  It was quite amazing!

Thanks for stopping by.  Come back again for more Atlanta!

A little of this and a little of that

Summer time is Busy time.
Here's a little bit of what we've been up to lately.

The last week of June we enjoyed our trip to Ohio boating with family and friends.

I had a good time scrapbooking with 17 scrappin' friends last weekend in St. Louis.

Isaiah and I had great birthdays.
Evan's friends Harley and Hailey baked me a birthday cake.

I taught a Photography class to 3rd, 4th and 5th graders at church all last week.
Isaiah was my helper.

This is a photo one of my students took of me.

Isaiah had his birthday party over the weekend.
It started with water wars....

Then moved inside to the ice cream sundae bar....

Next was present time.....

And finally the boys dug into their goodie bags and modeled their "Billy Bob" rotten teeth for me.

We had a big storm today and a branch fell and snapped my Dwarf Japanese Maple tree in half.

The branch that took out the JM tree

My poor tree is not a pile of branches on the ground now.

The storm knocked over a tree out back.

My Purple Cone Flowers are in bloom.

My Crepe Myrtle is in bloom.

Thanks for popping in for a visit.
Is your summer as busy as ours?

Oh Happy Day!

We are so pleased to announce that our oldest son Evan made the decision to get baptized while at Youth Camp (Summer in the Son) the week before last.  He really wanted his small group leaders to baptize him.  They were not able to go on the youth trip this year so he decided to wait until he got back.  Monty and Jim arrived at church shortly after our youth campers did (all 185 of them).  They along with Evan and another young man got ready while we found seats near the baptistery.  We are so proud of you Evan!!

Jesus answered, "I tell you the truth, no one can enter the kingdom of God unless he is born of water and the Spirit."
John 3:5

Vacation Photos coming soon!!
