Sunday School Picnic

This past Saturday night we had a Sunday School get together. We had a picnic in Falls Park and then went to play putt-putt. It was great weather and a great time with some good friends. Adam and I are so blessed to have a great Sunday School class with strong Christian leaders. I love spending time with the group.

The House

Here are some pictures of our house!!! We finally got everything moved in on Memorial Day and have been unpacking and putting stuff away since then. I think we finally have everything organized, at least for now. I wish I had some before pictures, but here are all the rooms with the new paint and everything put away.

Adams Birthday!!

Adam turned 27 this year on May 21. The Saturday after his birthday we got together with our friends Brian and Kris and went downtown to play putt-putt at the new Falls Park golf. It is a cool family owned place that has putt-putt and video games. We also went and had ice cream at the blueberry frog. My creation was chocolate yogurt with fruity pebbles, quite tasty.

Feeling Blessed!!

Just wanted to let everyone know that I have been feeling really blessed lately. Everyone in my life has provided something special. Adam is definitely the best husband and I don't know where I would be without him. God has also provided me with the best friends that a girl could ask for. I have known some since k-5, some since middle school, and some within the past few years. Sometimes it is hard for us all to see each other a lot now that we are adults and have families and jobs and what not, but I know that every one of them will always be there when I need them and vice versa. I also have the best family in the world. I could not ask for a better mother, father, sister, or brother-in-law. They are the best.
Lately I have been trying not to be so concerned about the little things in life and focus on what means the most to me. I have a wonderful husband, family, friends...I have a stable job and a house...I need to be thankful for what God has provided and who he has put in my life and not worry about the small things.

"Do not worry about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Finally, beloved, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is pleasing, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence and if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things." (Philippians 4:6-8)

Duck Derby

On Saturday, I went downtown with my mom and sister to the Duck Derby. It is a tradition that we go eat lunch and watch the race. Below are a few pictures from the day. The best part is watching the ducks go over the waterfall, it is so funny. There are so many of them too, the last picture shows only a small amount of how many ducks there were. Cant wait till next year!!


This past Saturday, Adam did the Marine Mud Run. It is a 4 mile obstacle course which includes mud crawls, climbing walls, running and different obstacles. Here is a picture of Adam, Kris, Jana, and Brian (aka The Spartans) after they finished. I was proud of him for doing so well, although he was definitley sore afterwards and still even now, haha. I, of course, was unable to do the race because of my ankle and I am a little out of shape, haha. I do want to do it next year, although as out of shape as I am I better start training now :)
Also below is a picture of them doing one of about 36 obstacles on the course, a tire challenge. They had to turn the tire over like 6 times before moving on to the next obstacle.
