Sunday

This past Sunday my church had an outdoor service and a whole entire day of fun. It was epic. (Overused word, I know.) Games were played. Soft ball. Volley ball. Prisoners base. Frisbee. There was lots and lots and lots of conversation. And singing. And laughter. We crack ourselves up over how completely hilarious we are. And there was sunshine. Most of us got burnt like toast. Have I mentioned that it was amazing?! There is just something about a group of people who love Jesus and love each other. The joy is overflowing.

 You have to hear this group. They sound amazing together. And that's my own Jess on the far right. Gorgeous Rosanna with the golden voice is next to her, with her handsome husband, Bradley. That is Silas on the left. All of these grand people that I am proud to know.
Father and son moment.
 Jeremy and Jared...brothers who are talented like you wouldn't believe. They have their own music cd out. In fact, more then one.
 The bubble machine was a stroke of genious. Who doesn't love bubbles floating through the air?!
This is me, of course, with my second to youngest brother Trevor (on the right) and his very best friend, Kurt. They are a month apart in age and have been best buddies since they were born. 
Just had to put this picture in. Here is Dominique. Really, you have to see him in real life. His eyes, his hair, his adorable little outfits. He is like a baby model. Melt-worthy!!!

This is all of us wonderful people at the service in the morning.

Babysitting

Although I don't do it nearly as often as I used to, when I'm not waitressing, I do still babysit. The 3 on the right are foster children and I have soft spot in my heart for them. 
 I love these kids. And most of the time they love me. 
I can't say I am an expert at childcare. Or even very good at it. But we have some good times. Like when we sing along (loudly and off tune) to songs from Frozen and Tangled. Yes, I do resort to bribery in the form of popcicles when the occasion arises.

Matching

I don't care how cliche matching outfits are. There is just something about wearing the same shirts as your best friends that makes you feel special. To me anyhow. 
On Sunday Jess, Rosanna and I wore polka dot shirts. A great find from Target (which we all love). We were called the triplets. Ack! I'd love to look like either one of these beautiful ladies. But I'm pretty decently happy to just be friends with them. And wear a matching shirt. =)

Happy Birthday Jess!

 To celebrate my friend Jess's birthday, a bunch of her friends got together and we spent the day together just having fun. We shopped. We ate. We laughed. We sampled ice cream. We saw some falls. 
 It was a nice relaxing day. 
In the evening the guys joined us for supper at Olive Garden...those bread sticks. Ack! I love them!
We then went and played Laser Tag. It was my first time, but it will not be my last!!!
 A happy birthday to my dear friend Jess!!!
