What A Mighty God We Serve!
We had a great 3 day vacation to Franconia Notch, New Hampshire last week. It was our first family vacation that didn't involve going to see Grandma and Grandpa. Our first stop was the Flume Gorge. I stand in awe of the awesomeness of our Creator. The kids did a great job hiking almost 2 miles, including up some pretty steep stairs. It was such an amazing, beautiful day, and a great time for our family.
The motel we stayed at had fishing, paddle boats, and an indoor and an outdoor pool. This came in handy since the second day we were there in POURED! The kids didn't mind though. We went out to breakfast, and then took a field trip to Chutters, the current world record holder for the longest candy counter.
Obviously, the kids were happy. I was happy too - I found Wonka Bottle Caps! They're not as good as I remember, but they're still pretty good! It stopped raining long enough in the afternoon for us to go out on the paddle boats and swim outside again. The kids were really just tickled with everything.
There were several thunderstorms during our trip, and I always find myself focusing on how powerful God is to control such forces! I'm so thankful that we were able to spend time as a family surrounded by God's creation.
Knitting accomplished? None.
Great times? Many!
