well this is life update and an abbreviated one at that. since going to seattle for a little vacation, a week of VBS at another church, camping at Cooper Lake, our church’s Festival of Booths campout, 4th of July BBQ w/church friends, summer outreach at the park (deb and i were clowns), and then finally a week at Long Beach, WA at the Lighthouse Resort (very nice) with grandma and grandpa and our cousins (the najeras).
perhaps i’ll write a longer post about each of those above later. hopefully sooner than later.
we had fun, although vacationing with so many kids is never “easy”. the drive home was about 9 hours total including snack, meal, and potty breaks. the video above shows you the last 6 minutes.
always an adventure in a family of 8, never a dull moment.
// today i’m thankful for:
1. a week at the beach
2. spending time with family
3. our new digital tv converter box
4. being able to sleep in my own bed last night
5. 4 out of 6 kids are still sleeping at the moment
