Please add yourself as a "follower" of my blog! Feel free to leave a comment! It's fun to know who reads my blog!

We've been pretty busy the last couple of weeks! I put this post together several days ago and have been trying to get videos from the boys' VBS musical posted on my blog. But it is taking forever for each video to upload. So for now, I'm just going to post this one.

It's all about hanging out with our friends Don and Ellen. They live right here in town--well just outside of the village; but they have a piece undeveloped property about 15 minutes away. Most of it is wooded and there were tons of mosquitoes, but once the fire got going, they weren't so bad. Off spray helped too! We had a wonderful time! After lunch, we headed down to the creek. It wasn't that hot, but the boys just had to go in! Its a beautiful spot and can't wait to go again. Jared and Nathan were invited to a birthday pool party the same day, but I let them decide which one they wanted to do. THIS is what they wanted to do. They'd been waiting for a few months for this outing. Don & Ellen and fabulous people!! We just adore them!

Heading off to the creek

In the creek (aka Rootbeer Creek) the water has a look of rootbeer color--its clean!

Beautiful spider web!

Relaxing again with dessert

Wait! Is that an Oreo cookie about to go in his mouth?!!
(I don't think I knew that at the time!)

Wrapping up the day

Until next time... hopefully soon.
blessings, joie

Hi Joie,
This is Paul your cousin 2+1.
Totally love the professionalism of your site and it's uplifting message. Sure is a nice contrast these days to see somebody celebrating the goodness and purity of life.
Really enjoy seeing the photos and having the chance to keep up with my American cousins.
Thank you for your kind words earlier.
