Back in Destin

We were so happy to head back to Destin last weekend. Even though it was a very quick trip, we had so much fun. Pierson and Sydney were quick to tell us that we had mistakenly moved to Madison and that we should have stayed in Destin. Sorry to disappoint kids, but we still have fun visiting!
No trip back would be complete without a visit with Chris and a visit to Pompano Joe's!

Syd looked like a natural running through the beach and waves. I say if you are born at the beach, you must have a little sand that always runs through your veins.

How many pictures do I have of these two? Cheryl held this boy more times than I can count. It was good to see you Cheryl!

Here it is - the reason for our visit. Mikey and Lilly made a beautiful bride and groom. And I have to say Pete looked great officiating too!

Girl Scout Camping

I had a great time camping with the girl scouts several weekends back. Here Sydney was was taking a break during a hike. We rested at Fairy Rock - to look for fairies, of course!
Peter and Pierson were at Boy Scout camp the same weekend, so we had a great girl time!

So, I signed Sydney up for pony rides, and every little girl got a pony. However, Sydney got this huge horse and she was a pro - no fear!

We had fun this Easter! It was a great day. We had our first service in our new sancturary at church, followed by a great dinner!
The family is waithing to dig in!

The Easter Bunny came while we were at church.

Thank you Easter Bunny!

Then it was time for the egg hunt, even Belle got in on the action.

Birthday Celebrations

So, we went to Gatlinburg, TN the last weekend in March to celebrate Pierson and Sydney's birthday. Of course, no birthday is complete with chocolate cupcakes. We had a great time at the resort!
Pierson had been looking forward to the waterslides and they did not disappoint!

Even Sydney was brave enough to conquer the waterslides - and they were big! But Sydney loved them!

Of course, all had to try to body boarding and surfing. My boy is a natural!

Missions Conference

I know it has been a few weeks since I have posted updates, but I have several weeks worth below. We had been so busy preparing for and enjoying the mission conference. It was such a great week for me to get to know some of the missionaries that our chuch supports. These are the Vegas, the missionaries that Pete works with when he travels to Panama. He has always had wonderful things to say about them. They are awesome church planters that are doing great things in Panama. It was such a blessing to get to know them and spend so much time with them.

Pierson's choir sang on the fourth night of the conference. It was so great to hear the kids sing about serving Jesus!

This is the 1st grade choir!

First Pinewood Derby

Here it is - the first entry in the pine wood derby. We did okay, but learned a lot about making cars. Pete and Pierson are getting ready for next year.

Sydney's Big Day

So, Sydney was so excited to have her Daisy Girls Investure. This is the day that the girls become an official Daisy Girl. It was a much anticipate day and she learned the Girl Scout promise to become a Daisy.

Here she is, reciting the promise she worked so hard to learn.

After the ceremonies with her new Daisy Girl pin and her new friend, Jasmine.
