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 #4....

I'm finally *mostly* caught up, though I'm going to be lagging on this blog for a bit yet....

Two days ago, we made two park visits on our summer park tour series.

SO -- Park Visit #4 was to Quail Creek Park!!!!  Quail Creek Park is in the back of the Quail Creek neighborhood in our fair city.

This park is one we have visited MANY times. I would say that this park is probably our family's favorite. This time, however, was our official visit, documented with pics!

Our family has nicknamed this park "The Shock Park" or "The Shocker Park".  And, I know we're not the only family with these nicknames.  This park, I think, with the combination of the materials with which the equipment is made and *maybe* the artificial grass, generates quite a bit of static electricity.  Therefore, kids and adults alike get shocked quite a bit.

First -- Luke's pic....

Next, my pic....

Both kiddos like to swing....

And, the equipment is fairly new.  Parts of the equipment are quite high, but both of our kiddos really like it.  And, I'm slowly starting to not get *quite* as nervous when Kate is up high. (Notice Kate's hair with the static electricity).

And, I LOVE capturing pics of our kiddos together, as siblings...

AND -- to stay "true to my word," here's the obligatory pic of Kate crying.  If I remember correctly, she had to be disciplined for not obeying her Mama.  Life is ROUGH when you're almost 3 years old.  In this pic, she was sitting, calming down, while waiting for her timer to beep off (the timer indicating when she could get back up to play).

The "Good" about this park:

***Newer, maintained equipment
***Easy access for our family
***Sheltered picnic area
***Area to play soccer, football, etc with friends
***Plenty of picnic tables
***Fun equipment

The "Not So Good" about this park:

***Virtually no mature trees; very little shade
***No restrooms
***Pond formed in field as a result of recent rains (no ball playing on this day)
