Weekend wrap up

ok so the pics are all out of order.... but you can see the excellent concoction they ended up with first. ;o)

Nothing terribly exciting happened this weekend, it was a good quiet time with family.... ok well not completely quiet but good.

Saturday was spent around the house with the boys, cleaning and hanging out. We had another major rain event with flooding. Nothing near our house, but some people in the area were still trying to recoup from the last one that almost lost my van.

Sunday was actually a busy day.

The pics above are from our Sunday church service that was down at the ocean front for the morning. It was a beautiful, if not humid morning. The pastor did an illustration with an ice cream sundae, and to be completely honest with you I didn't so much pay attention cause my boys were up there. I don't know what possessed me to pick up the camera on the way out the door, but I am thanking God that I did.

The pastor asked for volunteers, and N jumped right on up there. When E saw his brother running up he was having no parts of being left behind. SO cute! I wish I could have captured their faces better. They were thrilled to have this sundae, and let me just tell you it had all the fixings including like 7 different kinds of ice cream.

Then we spent some time with D's, cousin's wife, and 2 of their boys. That was fun. It has been 3 yrs since we saw them last. The boys have just GROWN. It was fun to catch up, even if only for a short time.

We went to visit some friends who were traveling back to KY to finish seminary there... and relax in the pool.

THEN... it was on to Z's church to hear the special speaker of the night, Brian Houston. I went by myself, D had stuff to do at home. It was really good stuff!!!

Next week is what I am really looking forward to though... the speaker is Chris Hill. AND it's my birthday, so I am going to get me some praise on, and get me some good preachin!! ;o)

I didn't really do an update on the exercise stuff on Friday because frankly I was not doing so well. But I have been doing some conversing with God, and I am needing to get rid of some more junk so that I can truly embrace taking care of myself.

I did more strongly recommit to the 10k on Halloween, and I think I have some people coming with me.

My dad brought over his treadmill so that I could work on that at home. woo weeeee can I just tell you that doing 2.6 miles on that tonight was way harder than working with Leslie Sansone's walking DVD's?!!! It's good stuff though. I cannot wait until I can say that I completed a 10k!

Well that's about it. D sort of has a job going on, but this job loss has been a real blow to his ego. He's been taking it hard. He is really turning to God in it all though, so I am counting that has a HUGE praise.
