brotherhood vaca

it has been a couple of years since we have done a vacation with the brotherhood, so it was time. we went a little more simple this time, and rented a big house in wimberely, tx...it had a pool, and 5 rooms, which was perfect for us, the other vandys, the lenards, the stewarts, and the sawyers. our first night we chilled and made our own dinners, and then went out for snowcones after dinner.

the next day we went to "the blue hole"...which is a natural swimming area! the water was SO cold...even in the super hot weather! it was really a lot of fun...

we made lots of memories, just hanging out at the house...playing games (boom)....chasing kiddos...and even a dance party!
the guys got a little time away, and the girls did too! we went shopping and then to a delish restaurant where i had my very first fried green tomato sandwich. YUM.
our last night was dinner on the town. a great little restaurant that had a nice patio where the kids could run around and we could still enjoy our dinner!
until next time...........

romania

4 days after being home from camp zephyr...andy packed up and went to help lead a missions trip in romania. it was his first time on an overseas missions trip...and his first time to be gone from us for that long of a trip (13 days)...it was LONG. he had many adjustments and challenges along the way...but the Lord worked in his heart and the whole team and totally pulled them through! they helped put on a week long youth camp....it was an amazing experience!!!
