Weekend Away

The boys all had big plans this weekend. Wesley and Davis spent Friday afternoon through Saturday afternoon in Orlando at a pre-teen ministry conference called "Superstart!" They had a wonderful time away with all their church friends. And they even got a side trip to Fun Spot.

Parker and I spent all day Saturday with the teenagers from the church at Rock the Universe, a Christian music festival at Universal Studios in Orlando. We got lots of great quality time with his friend Cullen and his mom Mer, one of my best friends and we got to see Toby Mac in concert. On Sunday we went back, after the morning's worship services - this time to Islands of Adventure and got to ride the new Harry Potter coaster, "Hagrid's Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure" which was simply AMAZING.

Lunar New Year At Disney

Monday we spent time in Disney with our friends the Hills. All the kids have plans this weekend when Lunar New Year actually is, so we celebrated Lunar New Year in Epcot with Davis. It was cold, but it was a great day of fun hanging out and having fun.

Board of Ordained Ministry

I spent last week at the Warren Willis Camp for the Conference Board of Ordained Ministry meeting. I got to be there with two of my covenant sisters - Christy and Melissa. And then our sister Latricia came up and was approved for ordination as an elder in full connection this week! And at the end of the week I was elected as vice-chair of the board for the next four years. Thankful for the continued privilege of doing this work.

Orlando Vacation - Day Seven

The last couple of days of vacation were for relaxing. We spent day seven hanging out at the Resort, in particular one of the other resort areas, River Island. This is where they had a big pool, lazy river, 36 holes of putt putt, slide and rock wall. It was so nice to have no agenda or time demands for this day. The final day we packed up, did a little shopping at the outlet malls and headed home.

Orlando Vacation - Day Six

Grandmommy came over on New Year's Day and we took her to Disney Springs for lunch at one of our favorite places, Raglan Road.

Later that evening we drove over the Central Florida Zoo in Sanford to see the Asian Festival of Lights, Into the Wild. We saw a different installation of this several years ago at Lowry Park Zoo in Tampa. We were very impressed with this new installation and Davis certainly enjoyed it a lot! It was definitely worth the trip over to look at.
