Saturday, June 13, 2009 we come!!!

January of 2008 we went on a vacation/conference to LA and San Diego. That was the first and only time Noah has seen the beach. He had just turned one. We have been wanting to take him to the beach for a while and have a fun vacation. But we could not afford it. Well the Lord has provided for us to go to South Carolina in September!! We have this family at our church who owns a condo there and they offered us a free week for our family! I have known them for quite a while, i graduated with their son. And they wanted to bless us since Chris and i are in the ministry and wanted to support us. We feel so very grateful and blessed! We were just talking about how long it has been since CA that we have gone on vacation and we really needed it! We cannot wait to spend the week together as our new family of four!! Owen will be 4 months when we go. So that will be good! And we will only have to pay for the gas to get down there. It takes about 10 hours. The condo has a full kitchen and washer and dryer. So we will be buying our food like we would at our own house and cooking. It is about 2 miles away from the beach and the condo community has its own pool as well. Thank you Lord for such a blessing!

a few of Noah's new favorites :)

The first 2 pictures are at this amazing park called Inniswoods Metro Park in Westerville. It is so beautiful and they have this entire section all for children. It was our first time there and it will not be our last, that is for sure!! The last two pictures are a water table someone got for Noah that he just loves! So fun. And the sand box is from a friend who's kids out grew it. He loves it!! It is so cool to see how the Lord is providing for us and our family. I am so glad its summer! Summer is even more fun with a 2 1/2 year old!!
