Day 4-6

Day 4: we left Arkadelphia, stopped in Mena, and then made our way to Purcell.  The girls loved Papaw!

Day 5:  we went to the OKC zoo with Mary and Andy, then got to hang out with the family.  Rebecca and Tim even came to see us!

Day 6:  We said our goodbyes and made the long trip home.  Our family is so generous.  We just had a great time every place we stopped!  It is so special to see our girls with our grandparents!

As long as we live so far away, we will do this every year!

Day 1-3 of "the tour."

Day 1 : The trip down was easy. We got to Nana's house and went to visit the family and swim with the Tanaka cousins. The rest of the evening was just some QT with Amber and Nana.

Day 2:  We started by going to Springlake to visit Makenna at the state FCA camp.  We saw lots of familiar faces!  Then, we headed to Family Farm and the girls had a blast while we visited with the May's.  While the girls napped, Josh and I went to get some cavities filled at "Michael Michael's " office and stopped by to see Sharon at her store.  That night, we headed to Arkadelphia for dinner with Nanny and then some playing on Mimi's carport.  We thought we were in heaven being able to go outside with no mosquitos.

Day 3: We had time with Nanny and Memaw!

Let Freedom Ring

We celebrated our Independence Day in the backyard kiddie pool!

I am so thankful to be an American and grateful to all those who have sacrificed for and who serve our country protecting our freedom!

Black Mountain

We had the privilege of attending FCA coaches camp again this year.  It was awesome.  We have decided this has to be a yearly thing for our family.  There just aren't enough words to tell you how good God was to us last week!

First, we drove 1/2 way to Nashville to spend the night.  We explored toys r us, went to rainforest cafe and swam at the hotel and the girls even slept (decently)! We were tired, but the trip started off very well!

Once we got up the mountain, our group was awesome, the babysitter was great, and we were all prepared for this retreat.  I worried much less about the late nights, bonded more with my group, participated more, and we were all just so blessed.

Each afternoon we tried to get out and do something, the first day we explored the town and got ice cream, the second day we played mini golf, and the third afternoon we did the family fun olympics.  

We just all had a blast.

The trip home was long, but our hearts are still so encouraged.  I am so grateful for this experience!

Our precious group.
I could totally name drop.  But I won't. :-)  Thankful for each of these families and their love for the Lord!
