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 #6....

Park Visit #6 was last week.  It was "Springlake Park" or the "Sprinkler Park" or the "Splash park". (Yes -- I'm well aware that sentence was a run-on and needed some punctuation).

BUT -- in our little Friesen Family of 4, it is called the "Sprinkler Park".

I have to say I thoroughly enjoy this park this year because BOTH of our kiddos get in the water without complaining.  I get to soak in some Vitamin D while watching them!  If I get hot, I can simply put my legs and feet in some water.

Honestly, this is one of my favorite parks! (And -- we've been back a couple of times already since this visit, and I'm just *guessing* we'll be back multiple more times this summer).

As a side note -- if you haven't been to this park, it does indeed have some playground equipment.  I never let my kiddos play on it because we're there for the water.  And, the equipment is not "Kate-Friendly" in my opinion.  (Better for elementary kids)...

Also, there is a small, covered picnic area, which we have personally never used...

AND -- on this day, Marc showed up IN swimming trunks after work.  Luke was THRILLED because Marc will play cool games like "dump water on one's head," etc....

The "Good" about this park:

***Sprinklers are well-maintained, in our opinion
***Covered picnic area, if needed
***Playground equipment for older kids
***Small walking/bike path around nearby pond

The "Not-So-Good" about this park:

***No restrooms
***No shade
***Not too much off-street parking
***Not enough benches for towels, etc at sprinkler area, in our opinion (I personally solve this problem by bringing a lawn chair for myself)...
