Please buckle your seat belts. You’re about to get a fast blur of our very busy
life from the past couple of months.

Let’s start with a trip that Carinna took the beginning of June!

Carinna traveled up to MN with Dustin and Hannah for
Michelle’s Dornink’s graduation party.

Making an enormous graduation sign, playing games, and uplifting conversation
are a few of her highlights.

Okay, so, when I say traveling with Dustin and Hannah, that means some quality time  (12 hours of it to be exact!) in the back seat with this lil dude!


                 Father’s Day                              God blessed us with lots of delicious
                                                             peaches from our trees!

For a whole week, Charity and I had the privilege of cooking up at Eagle Springs for the folks going through  Operation Impact. It was a blessed time for us!

Popcorn anyone?
One night we got to participate in a Survival Scavenger Hunt!
It was super fun!!

Next, Carinna and I went up with Dustin and Hannah a week early for Dillon’s (Dustin’s brother) wedding.

Being a twin is the best!!!!!!


Abbie took Carinna and I to Frontier City and White Water Bay as a birthday present!!!! We had SUCH A BLAST!!!!!!!

Oh, the adrenaline rush!!!! =D photo 3aIMG_0008
We didn’t realize that White Water Bay was a whole separate park!
I don’t think we’d go there again, but we did have fun getting wet!!!!

I haven’t had so much fun in a really long time!!! It was an absolute blast!

See Evan’s shoes?! He’s walking like crazy now!
In just a few short weeks, he has turned into a toddler!
(SmileAnd he’s just getting cuter and cuter! Smile)


We are super excited that these two lovebirds get married in just
one week and five days!!!!!!! And needless to say, they are excited too!!

I hope that wasn’t too much information at one time, but I think as of right now, you are fairly caught up with some of the happenings in our life!


Colossians 3:23-24

And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men;
 Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ.”
