Baseball, Hamburgers: All Things American

This weekend we were blessed to celebrate with my family and grandparents in Olympia.  On Saturday, we bummed around in Seattle at Pike Street Market, basking in the street musicians, fresh flowers, and Ivar's Fish 'n Chips.  Then we headed off to cheer the Mariners on at my sister-in-law’s first Major League Baseball game. A momentous occasion to be sure.
We relaxed all weekend, soaking in the temperamental sunshine and each other’s presence.  Sunday brought homemade burgers and a patriotic cake AND a necessary post-dinner walk around the neighborhood. (Also, I was able to steal a few moments of my little sister's time for an overdue sister talk :)
I was super bummed... the icing melted!
Summer's Here!!

On Monday, we had a little barbecue & game night with some friends from church. We may or may not have spent over an hour playing a board game entitled, "Whit's End."  Be jealous, you Adventures in Odyssey fans, be jealous.

By the way, Summer, are you here for good, now? Or are you just flirting with me?

What a refreshing weekend – always a rich, rich blessing to spend time with family and friends.

Just Us

We will also remind you that this is just a BLOG…just the highlights. We don’t sit around happily smiling for pictures all day long. Our life is far from perfect: we are imperfect people serving a perfect God. We do strive to glorify God, but we fail miserably and find comfort in knowing that our debts have been paid and we have been set free.
