This is nice

we had a nice weekend. Saturday we all went over to University Park and had a picnic. The girls played a little football with Eric, though Jenna complained within about 5 minutes of how hot and tired she was. She is my kid LOL! Seriously though, aren't these pics so sweet :)

After the picnic the girls headed over to the splash park which is just a big really cool sprinkler set up in the park where the kids can have a little free summer fun (free is my favorite kind). I didn't really get any pictures of them over there cause Eric and I were sitting in the shade and honestly, I was just too hot and lazy to drag myself over to get close ups. I know we'll be going again this summer (went three times last week) so I'm not concerned. I'm really at the point of being very very uncomfortable when I'm on my feet and especially in the heat. I hate that there's still 7 weeks to go, but I'm sure it'll be over before I know it.

So here are a few cute shots of Marah. I'm a bad mom, I didn't get many photos of Jen and the ones I did weren't great. She's 8... which I really think is just an unphotogenic age. That's terrible huh?

She's really just too cute for her own good. And of course, she totally knows it. :)

Saturday evening we went out to Fred and Tera's (sister in law and her husband) for dinner and just to hang out. Dick and Terri (mom and dad in law) spent the night out there so that they could come to church with us on Sunday morning. The girls spent like, 2 hours or more (I can't recall) in the pool with Fred. He's such a good Uncle, really :) He's almost always up for spending time with the girls and he doesn't just sit around when they're over, he's always up to something it seems and he includes them whenever possible. It's very sweet.

Sunday we went to church and once again the pastor had a great message. It was the last in a series so I'm anxious to see what the next series will be. I also anxiously await Sunday school starting up again for school age kids. That's one thing I really don't like about this church, the kids program pretty much stops in the summer. So kids sit in the church, distracting their parents and other people around them and it bugs me so much. However, Jenna does pretty well and sits quietly and she doesn't complain. Marah goes to the nursery. The teaching is sound and applicable though, so we're sticking with it.

Okay, I'm getting achy wrists so I'm gonna quit here.

    These are great photos. Looks like fun! I'm so glad you guys have found a great church. I know it's going to make a difference in your lives. Interesting that they don't have Sunday School for the kids, though. That's a bummer.

  2. I know... it really is. Once we become members we'll complain :) Seriously though, it's not a huge church (though it's not tiny either) and they probably just have a lot of issues with volunteers in the summer. But I think something should be figured out.

  3. CARPAL TUNNEL!!!!!!

    people still become official members of churches?

  4. that first pictures makes me think of a cheesy 70's show. i love it.
