Petting zoo and Emergency Vehicles

We attended the grand opening of Ooltewah United Methodist's playground earlier this summer. The kids were able to explore some amazing emergency vehicles. As soon as the arrived I heard a helocopter in the sky. I had no idea it was going to land in the parking lot. How amazing it was to see it land and feel the air spinning around.
Matthew had so much fun climbing all around the Fire Engine and asking tones of questions.

This is a bomb squad vehicle. Pretty cool!!!

All of the kids were able to hold rabbits and chickens. We took Kaylee, one of Abigail and Matthews friend, along with us.
Gabbie had a fun time sliding on the new slide.

Cute Photos of Kids

These are just a few cute photos that have been taken this summer.

4th of July

On July 4th of this year we were in Tuscaloosa with family. We had a huge cookout and great fireworks. These are just a few pictures of the kids in their patriotic wear.

JFest 2008

Bands took the stage early Saturday morning and played through til night. About 5000 people showed up and sang praises to God.

We packed a pallet and chairs and set out for a fun day. In the afternoon the sun was beating down on us, so we took shelter under a makeshift tent.

Gabbie stayed out of the sun under our shelter.
As it cooled off, Gabbie rambled to another families area and entered in to their play. They accepted her in and she had a blast.

Matthew found his way over and joined in also. Mercy Me took the stage around 8:00 p.m. and we went home to get some sleep.
