The Trip Part 2

After a few hours of driving we stopped at "Bob Evans" for lunch. We found a few geocashes then ate lunch. Then we got back in the van and drove for a few hours then stopped at a rest stop. Just then Dad noticed that he had left his geocashing GPS at "Bob Evans"! Thankfuly we called Wawi and Poppy and they picked it up on their by (PTL).


Daddy lost his geocaching GPS!

The Trip Part 1

OK, so first we got in the van and we were going to start driving when we found out that our van battery was not charged! So we called Poppy and Wawi to come down and give us some of their battery charge but right when Wawi got down to our house our battery started working again!
And finally we were off! Caedmon went pretty much right to sleep so we did not stop to eat right away.

The Sun

You Are the Sun

By Sara Groves and Matt Bronlewee


You are the sun shining down on everyone
Light of the world giving light to everything I see
Beauty so brilliant I can hardly take it in
And everywhere you are is warmth and light
And I am the moon with no light of my own
Still you have made me to shine
And as I glow in this cold dark night
I know I canít be a light unless I turn my face to you
You are the sun shining down on everyone
Light of the world giving light to everything I see
Beauty so brilliant I can hardly take it in
And everywhere you are is warmth and light
And I am the moon with no light of my own
Still you have made me to shine
And as I glow in this cold dark night
I know I canít be a light unless I turn my face to you
Shine on me with your light
Without you Iím a cold dark stone
Shine on me I have no light of my own
You are the sun, you are the sun, you are the sun
And I am the moon
(this is not my picture)


This is a song by one of my favorite singers, Sara Groves.
I am also entering in a sun contest by Hannah, at this site. Go Hannah!

Ocean-Hotel 2, Part 3

Our next hotel was in Raleigh, Virginia. It had an out door pool and we went there right away.

It was very fun, plus the outdoor pool was cold, but refreshing when you got used yo it:)




Ocean-West Virginia, Part 2

West Virginia was beautiful! I love it with all it's rolling hills and trees. Our God is an awesome God!
What's this mountain called? Anyone know? It's beautiful anyway.


Our God is an awesome God, he made..

...The heaven above with..

...wisdom,power,and love,...
Our God is an awesome God!

Ocean, Hotel 1-Part 1

Okay, this title may sound pretty weird, but lots of post are going to be named something like this for quite awhile. We got back from the ocean and it was great! We has a, simply SPLASHING time. So, here are my pictures from the first hotel we stayed in, Beckley, West Virginia, a Holiday Inn.
So, we got in the pool immediately, like we always do. This was a great, big, open pool.
The big, open, pool

Peter splashing in the water

Caedmon loved the water too!

I play a game called Flotiall, where I sit on a flotie and make my way around the pool. I pretend it is a world sport.

Neat picture of the refection on the water

Getting in the water

Peter loves to swim, soooooooo much!

"I don't know about this!"

JJ!


Anyway, it was lots of fun!

Posting and Blogs

So, I guess you've noticed that we've been posting quite a lot lately. Yes, Jenna and Kaelyn have really gotten into the whole blogging thing. I bet you've seen a post everyday if you're a follower. Kaelyn does random ones all the time. Right now, I'd like to share some blogs which I really think you'll enjoy. Ready, Set, GO!
First is, A Lit Hill! This blog is run by my good friend Abby, and she loves to read, and gives lots of posts about her life, shining God's light, and everything else!
Next is, Flourish! This blog is also run by a good friend of mine, Fiona. She calls her blog Flourish because it is an apt description of her life. She posts things about her life, her puppy Hugo, and a new devotional!


This is the blog of Fiona's Mom, Alison! In Stuff and Nonsense, she offers giveaways, and shows cool pictures of home decorations.
This next blog features the life of 13 singing children, ages 30-5! The Wissmann Family Blog has to be in my top 3 favorite blogs, because of the fun, godly, family it's about!
Next is 3 more blogs, Bethany's Blog run by daughter of Loren and Gloria Wissmann, Andrew and Kori's Blog run by their daughter-in-law, and Josiah and Abi's Flight Log run by their son and daughter-in-law! The first one has great photography! Actually, they all do but Bethany's Blog has the best.
Bethany's Blog


Next up is Aspiring Homemaker, a blog about one woman's daily life as a homemaker, with good advice and pictures!
Also, is Damsel Arise, giving a unique bible verse saying this(below), and about her daily life!

Now, Following God Ever Day is also a great read, because of the quiet reflections she shares and the great photography that portrays everyday life from s'mores to biking.
Now, for my Aunt's Blog, The Garvin Gang. Their family of 7, and soon 8, holds some valuable times for posting!

And for the last one, The Jerome's in Steeler Country, our friends the Jerome's also have some good chances for blogging, and with this blog you'll never go dry on adventures!

Hope you enjoy my favorite blogs!
