Happy Birthday Dan!!

I hope you have a marvellous day
--and many, many more!

and He delights in his way."

May Highlights

Last month was filled with work, school, baking, studying, laundry, and all those normal routines of daily life. [grin]

But in between those typical days, we had company come visit! Which means taking some time off to do a lil' sightseeing, cruising in the convertible, and catching up with friends!

Washington DC is always a popular place to tour
and snap a few pictures...

[Wow. I'm the girl married to that tall, dashing man?!]
*happy sigh*

Headed to see the White House.

After walking our feet off we were ready to sit down for a refreshing treat! Upon which I discovered a new weakness (and not for something chocolate, believe it or not) but for Pinkberry's frozen yogurt. Just in case you have never had the Pinkberry experience, just check out the picture below and see if it doesn't make you hungry...

Such creamy goodness piled with luscious fruit!

And thanks so much for coming out to visit us, Grace! What a delight to have you visit for the weekend!

Then over Memorial Day weekend, more of Dan's siblings visited -- and we packed the weekend to its fullest!

Joe, Anna, Esther and Dan on the top of Maryland Heights.

Rain was in the forecast as we headed out, but we figured we'd still try to make it to the top --which we did! But after making our way back down and beginning the long walk to our car, the torrential downpour began! We were all completely soaked by the time we made it to the car. It was then such a welcoming feeling to arrive home, get out of the storm, and find that the slow-cooker had done its job as the delicious smell of supper wafted through the house.

We also went to DC for a day -- and rented bikes to get around.

Getting our picture taken with Honest Abe.

Our trusty steeds!

Yes -- this trip to DC also included a stop at Pinkberry. [smile]

We also played lots of volleyball, talked, ate, played games, stayed up way too late, and enjoyed hanging out. I'm so glad God designed families!!

And now Dan is busy studying and preparing for finals next week and life is somewhat back to routine. Hopefully I'll be more consistent in posting here -- yet I have a feeling this summer is going to fly by all too quickly!

Happy Monday, ya'll!

Philippians 4:6-7

"Do not be anxious 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."

The beginning of anxiety is the end of faith,
and the beginning of true faith is the end of anxiety.
-George Mueller
