Welcome....Here's a glimpse of our happenings!

The verses that have REALLY spoken to me (Sarah) lately....



"Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock." Matthew 7:24-25



Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that your brothers throughout the world are undergoing the same kind of sufferings. I Peter 5:8-9



From one man he made every nation of men, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he determined the times set for them and the exact places where they should live. God did this so that men would seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him, though he is not far from each one of us. For in him we live and move and have our being. As some of your own poets have said, 'We are his offspring.' Acts 17:26-28



May the words of my mouth and the mediation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, O Lord, my Rock, and my Redeemer. Psalm 19:14



So be careful to do what the Lord your God has commanded you; do not turn aside to the right or to the left. Walk in all the way that the Lord your God has commanded you, so that you may live and prosper and prolong your days in the land that you will possess. Deuteronomy 5:32-33



God, our God, will take care of the hidden things but the revealed things are our business. It's up to us and our children to attend to all the terms in this Revelation. Deuteronomy 29:29 (The Message)

Our Vacation -- Day 3 (Part 1)....

I will now resume chronicles of our vacation in August....

Click HERE for information about our vacation.

Click HERE for Day 1 of our vacation.

Click HERE for Day 2 of our vacation.

And, before I start on "Day 3 (Part 1)," I shall give a warning. This post may be photo overload of our son....

Anyways, for Day 3 (which was Friday, August 20), we all spent the morning at the Minnesota Children's Museum. It's a museum in downtown St. Paul, and Marc and I personally, overall, thought it was a very well put-together museum with activities for all ages of kids. In other words, we do recommend you going there if you're in the area with children :)



They were quite busy that day, but fortunately, the entrance line moved fairly quicky -- despite ALL of the strollers (which we contributed to, by the way).



After paying the fees, here's kind of what you see....



And, rather than trying to find the "perfect" exhibit to satisfy all three of these children, we just started right in....

Here are the backs of Tammy, Jesse, Caleb, and Reynold -- working with a hands-on exhibit.



Luke -- at the same exhibit....



And, Luke at another exhibit....



Then, we hit the JACKPOT (at least in Luke's eyes)....a WATER exhibit.













And, here's my favorite shot of Luke and Jesse...If I remember correctly, Luke had just splashed Jesse, and the photo was taken at just the right time -- capturing a great face of surprise by Jesse....



And, just to fully prove just how much fun this exhibit was for Luke...here are a couple of photos of Luke after the water. And no, he didn't leak through his diaper to produce this wetness.





Later, we found an exhibit especially for children ages 4 and under...J.A.C.K.P.O.T.

Yes, Luke had a great time, and we all got to experience a major 2 year-old fit upon leaving this exhibit. But, I'll spare you those photos and just post the photos of Luke having a great time -- which truly was a joy for Marc and me to see.









And, a few more photos from yet another exhibit -- fitting for Luke's age...











And lastly, looking at fish....



Luke obviously did have a good time for two reasons....a) the fit that was displayed upon leaving this museum, and b) these photos were taken on the way from the museum to our lunch location....





O.K., O.K. -- enough of the photo overload...Stay tuned for Day 3 (Part 2)....
