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)

Park Visit #10...

Park Visit #10 took place just over a week ago.  It was to "Military Park".  The kids and I coordinated this park visit around "Hot Dog Day" (or what we call "Hot Dog Day").  This is the day when a local bank ("First Bank") has their annual customer appreciation day for the entire community (not just their customers). Hot dogs, chips, drinks, and sno-cones are handed out at no charge.  There is a bounce house.  There are "freebie" things (pens, etc) handed out as well as balloons for the kiddos! Our family is very grateful for this day.  It's a nice little family event, and it's a great community event.

Marc is always working during "Hot Dog Day".  Several years ago, Luke started inviting my parents (Papa and Grandma Andover).  My mom was unable to make it this year, but my dad came!

Aanndd -- the official picture (Kate was being "Kate" and wasn't wanting to pose for the picture)....

Enjoying our hot dog lunch together...

And, probably as is typical with a lot of families eating at a park which has playground equipment -- the kids finished eating quickly. They were both promptly begging to go and play.  Ordinarily at a park, I let them play while I finish eating.  But, because there were a lot of people and we weren't able to sit close to the playground for supervision, they had to endure waiting for my dad and I to finish eating...such a hard life -- Ha!

And, this park is one of the few parks around anymore with a merry-go-round...so fun for the kids!

Both kids got the ol' fake tattoos...

Luke jumped in the bounce house...

And, the kids and I got our sno-cones!

Lastly, as all of you locals know, this park houses an old steam engine.  My dad happens to be a bit of a train expert.  So, Luke and my dad spent a short time discussing the steam engine.

Thank you "First Bank" for the fun day!  Our family does appreciate it!

And finally -- this park is called "Military Park". There is some military "stuff" in the park, but honestly, I have yet to take the time to explore it.  I better take a re-visit to this park and figure it all out!

Kate has since already asked my dad over the phone to come to "Hot Dog Day" next year!
