Vacation Update - part II

Here are some more pictures from our trip to Washington.

Kyle and Taylor are ready for camp meeting.

Daddy and Kyle walking at the Pacific Ocean.

For all the animal lovers, we went to "NorthwesTrek" a place where we rode a tram and got to see lots of animals that are native to Washington. It was neat to see some of these animals close enough to reach out and touch - as long as you didn't mind losing your hand!!

We also went to the Mt. Rainier National Park, but unfortunately, it was very cloudy that day, and we didn't get clear pictures...but the landscape we could see was very beautiful!

And just for everyone's enjoyment, the picture below is me up on the roof of the mobile home/trailer we stayed got TP'd the second time and I was trying to clean it up...

And if you think of it, say a prayer for me over the next 2 1/2 weeks. I need to sort and then pack up all of our stuff..."Do I take it to Mexico, store it, sell it, or take it with me to use now and then..." As you can see, it's a daunting task! We'll actually be moving into my grandfather's place until we leave for Florida and then on to Mexico, come January. So anyway....if you're close enough, you could always stop by my yard sale this Saturday the 18th or on Saturday the 25th.

That was Then, This is Now!

Happy Anniversary!!! us...

Wow! It's hard to believe we've been married 6 years! Where has the time gone? We've been through good times and of course bad times, but we're still in love with each other. The "I do's" are forever!!

We went out to eat at Olive Garden for dinner - it was exceptionally delicious!

As is blogger ritual, I am posting "then & now" pictures.

Dear Bloggers...

It seems like forever since I've posted. Of course, that would be due to that fact that we are busy right now! Very profound, I know!

We are singing for the Pierce County Holiness Association Camp Meeting in Tacoma, Washington. They are wonderful people, and the Lord has really been helping in our services. The special speaker is Bro. Robert Wilson.

Here is a picture of the tabernacle.
This is the mobile home/trailer where we are staying. As you can see, one night, the young people went out of their way to give us a good welcome!

This picture was taken from the waters of Puget Sound. Mt. Rainier is approximately 65 miles away, yet it seems so close. It's absolutely stunning!

I think I could take hundreds of pictures of this mountain! Hopefully, we'll have more to come! After the camp is over, we are planning on taking a day and visiting the Mt. Rainier National Park - doing a little up close and personal visit!

Kyle is enjoying the ducks at a little park we stopped at.

Kyle also had a birthday on July 30th. He turned 2 yrs. old - where has the time flown? (Please don't tell him, but I don't think the "terrible two" part has kicked in yet. He's generally good, just curious and a little too independent at times)!! The camp provided some delicious cake and ice cream. We'll actually have an official family celebration later in the month of August.

This is the Star Lake Church of God Holiness where Michael preached last Sunday morning. It was beautiful inside and out!

We will be doing some other sight-seeing after camp, so I'll have more pics to show...just no promises on when I'll get around to it!
