A Busy Weekend!

On Saturday, we took my brother-in-law Jon to Philly to UPenn for his second year of law school! (Yes, he is brilliant!=) ). We had a great time hanging out with Jon in the car while we were stuck in traffic on the Schuylkill!!!! We got him moved in and then took Mj to his surprise - the Philadelphia Zoo!!! Of course, we would pick one of the hottest days of the year to do that! We had a blast though! Mj's favorite animals were the giraffe and zebras. Personally, I enjoyed the monkeys and the polar bear! Mj was so funny. He would run from animal to animal! He couldn't watch them for more than 5 seconds because there were more animals to see!=) He actually didn't mind the snakes. We even got to see one exercising! The bats freaked both of us out! They're so gross and big!!!! We really did have a wonderful time and it was great just being together as a family and watching Mj having so much fun!

Monday, I celebrated my 28th birthday! Man, I'm old!! I still remember when I thought 30 was old and I'm getting closer to that number! I was able to have lunch with my friend Sonja from college. She was down visiting her cousin who lives close by. Then Mark and I went out. We planned on going to the Brownstone Cafe, but when we were walking in we saw the Elk Theater next door was playing the "Bourne Ultimatum." Yeah, so we watched the movie. The movie was over at 9:20 and since Middletown is not a hoppin' place everything was closed!! We hadn't eaten yet so we decided to run to Hershey and eat at Applebees! Delicious!!!!!!!!!=) We had fun being spontaneous which we never are and eating at 10:30 at night!=) I know we are the party animals!!!=)

Such a Little Man

Mj is growing up way too fast!! Next year he'll be going into kindergarten!!!!=0 I'm not ready!! God has blessed us so much with this precious gift from Him!

A funny thing about Mj the other day. We were talking about the people we had seen Sunday afternoon and Mj said, "Neha's the best, but let's keep that on the down low!!" I almost fell off my chair; I was laughing so hard!!!

Redeeming Grace

This was a song on the new WILDS CD, Rejoice! that we bought and heard at camp. The words are so good, so I thought I'd share them with you. Praise God for His redeeming grace!

Before the mirror of Your Word,
I stand, O Lord, in shame.
For there I see my sinful self,
My proud and foolish frame.
yet in the presence of my God,
My state I shall not fear;
For robed in Your own righteousness,
Like You I shall appear.

By You, O Lord, my thoughts are known,
By You my heart is seen.
Yet by Your love and sacrifice
My soul has been made clean.
So now in gratitude I bow
Before my Father's face,
Adorned in robes of righteousness
And garments of Your grace.

May I reflect the glor'ous light
Of Your redeeming grace,
And radiate the righteousness
Of Your most holy face.
Until I reach my heav'nly home
And gladly take my place,
May I reflect the glor'ous light
Of Your redeeming grace;
Of Your redeeming grace.

The Wilds

What an uplifting and encouraging week of camp! Our teens learned so much. I can't wait to hear their testimonies tonight! I was so encouraged from our family reunion with them on Thursday! The Lord is so good! We had a busy week. Mark and I went to the 4th falls!! You always forget how hard a hike that is and it was so hot that week, but we made it!=) We also went tubing with the Walters and Farmers. That was fun. The new Water Wars area is so fun, but you do get soaked!!!!! Mark and I enjoyed going to the lake, too. The tube slide and water trolley were definitely our favorites!=) We can't wait until next year!!=)Mark and I at the 4th Falls
The Girls in their Team Garb!
