Concert in the Park

July 31, 2008

   Last night we went to Concerts in the Park in Tustin.  We were there with some school friends: the Thornes(John, Laura, Ryane,Colton&their cousins) and the Ponders(Julie,Maddie&Katie) who leave for Chicago tomorrow.  It was the perfect weather to eat outdoors and enjoy the band. The kids had a blast dancing and running around.  It was a nice way to say goodbye […]

Happy trails to you…

It’s soooo hard saying goodbye!  At 4:00pm today our very good friends, The Arels, are leaving for Singapore to start a new life.  We laughed, cried and shared so many special moments with them. We will miss them tremendously but we are excited that they will get a once in lifetime opportunity.

I don’t know much about the couple but last night I learned how dedicated they are to serving our church and it left such […]

Highlights of our summer so far….

July 22, 2008

Here’s to catch you up on what we’ve been doing this summer.  We’ve had several trips to our favorite Park in OC, Irvine Reginal Park.  Steve and I used go to Irvine a lot while we were dating so it’s really neat to take our kids there now.  We like to rollerblade with our dogs, Britton(Alpha […]

ABF Adult Social

July 22, 2008

                This past Sunday night we got together with our ABF friends for a much needed Adult time.  We had ribs with all of the fixins and desserts galore.  We finished the evening with one of my fave game Guesstures!  I can’t wait to fellowship again.

I’m so excited to explore this new world of sharing stories and photos.  I’m not into scrapbooking so this is a great way for me to journal my family’s life.  I hope you enjoy and visit often!
