Good Friends...that got alot of sun!
We got to celebrate Kayla's 8th Birthday with her!
Kids with Becca & Jared
Loading up to get on the water
A wonderful "perk" to Jason's job is that our family gets to join him on "business trips". Mostly these are camping-type trips, but the kids LOVE it and it is always such a blessing to be able to be with him as he ministers. He has such a heart for the 20-30 age group (Satellite)and it is neat to watch him and get to build relationships with these people too.
We just returned from Satellite's Hydro Water Ski Camp, at Bass Lake. There was lots of sun, water, boating and food. This year, our Senior Pastor, Jon Venema, was the guest speaker. It was fun to see him in a different setting. The Saltzman Family has joined on to volunteer in Satellite, so, ofcourse, the kids were thrilled to have their playmates along on the trip!

This blue gown weighs about 18 lbs.
"Glinda" and Meran...holding her wand
This is what Alli looks like on stage
Ben, Kate, Me, Meran & Mom
Getting ready to go into the Show
Breakfast at a little Cafe
Meran's first trolley ride...and she got to ring the bell!
Meran and I just got home from a whirlwind trip to San Francisco. My parents took us and we met up with my brother, Benjamin and his fiance, Kate, who live in the city. We went to see the musical, WICKED. A long time family friend, Alli Mauzey, plays Glinda (or Gulinda, if you wish-if you have seen it you know what i mean!) She seriously made the musical what it was~she is so talented. She has performed on Broadway, among other places. To experience her talent you can youtube her. "Popular" is the favored song of Meran and myself. After the musical, we met Alli backstage and she showed us around. It was a fun experience!
The weekend went way too quick, but we managed to slip in some shopping, really great meals and a trolley ride topped off with a trip to Ghiradelli Square.
A weekend Meran and I won't soon forget!
*Special thanks to my husband for staying home to hold down the fort and entertain the boys...they had their own fun~swimming, McDonald's and yardwork...a boy's dream!

the little kids
sutton liked the fireworks...he kept saying "more" in between booms
needless to say, sutton isn't crazy about the pool...
We spent another wonderful 4th of July with a bunch of friends at the DeHaan's Home.
Lots of eating...lots of swimming....lots of dessert....lots of kids....lots of fireworks
Everyone had a memorable time. We look forward to it all year long.
So thankful to be free!
