Rubbish Rangers!!!

On Saturday, our youth group worked hard as Rubbish Rangers!!! We cleaned up trash on Bean Hill Rd. It was a great outreach opportunity and we had many people stop and thank us. We found some pretty disgusting things (poopy diapers, many fake flowers, windshield, cell phone, tons of cigarette butts, you get the picture). After our hard work, we went to Wendy's and then mini-golfing!! We ended our fun-filled day at Ritas!!

Fun with a Mattress Video

Our Doggy

Fun with a Mattress

On Saturday, Mark was building shelves in Mj's closet. He took these mattresses out to put them in the attic (that's why they are in garbage bags). Jadyn enjoyed climbing on them and the Mj decided it was fun to yank on the bag and see Jadyn fall off! It must've been fun. They played this for about 2 hours!!!
