I'm back!

Sorry I haven't been around, but life has been crazy busy the last few weeks.

 A couple weeks ago we had Base Camp at our church. I've heard it described as VBS on steroids. It's a very accurate description. Between helping with the 5th grade girls ever night and working extra that week, I was busy! It was a great week, though. We had a lot of fun with the kids, learning about Paul and studying Acts. 

After that week Andrew and I needed a vacation! So, last week we headed to Chicago. It's where we got engaged, so it's a special place for us. We had great weather and a perfect day. I'll be sharing more about that later this week. 

We had barely returned home before we headed back out again. One of our nephews had a birthday and we had said we would go and camp on their property (they are building on 10.5 acres out in the middle of nowhere. It's good camping area.) friday night. That's another adventure that I'll share about this week as well!

By the time we got to Independence Day, we were tired. We didn't do anything. We slept in and had a lazy day hanging around the house. We did go out for an ice cream cone after dinner. If you ever come across a place that has key lime soft serve, get it. It is the perfect after dinner dessert!

So, we are trying to get back into the swing of normal life. It's been busy, but fun. I'll try to catch up on everything I've missed!


  1. You deserve a quiet day Heather!! My daughter and her husband were just in Chicago as well.

  2. Hmmm - I just don't know about key lime in ice cream!

  3. Oh, your Fourth of July sounds as if it was ideal. Quiet and lazy are my buzzwords. I call it taking the activity level down to less than one bar, haaha. Enjoy your trip to Chicago, my favorite city in the world. xoxo
