An Afternoon on the Boat...

One of our favorite things to do in the summertime is go out and enjoy the water on the boat. It's great when you can share that with friends!
On this day, Blair & Mark joined us.

Camping at Lake Durant

This one is dark, but Ithought the silhouette was kind of cool.
While fishing for Musky's, Brian caught several large mouth bass.

We're out on the boat and Brian says, "Look!" I looked all over the place, trying to figure out what he was talking about, then I saw it....A squirrel swimming! It was so crazy!

In July we went camping at Lake Durant in the Adirondacks. It rained the whole first night and when we woke up a ranger told us that there was a bear siting during the night. We looked around our site and were convinced that this is a bear print! It's hard to see so you probably think I'm just crazy, but it honestly looks like a bear clawed the ground.


We went and saw fireworks at Emerson park to celebrate the 4th.
This 4th of July marks our 3rd Anniversary! My how time flys!

Creation Festival '07

The Creation Festival is a music festival held in Mount Union, PA (or thereabouts). It's held from a Wednesday to Sunday and thousands of people come out and camp on this "farm" each year. During the day there are bands and speakers to hear and each night some of the biggest names in Christian music perform. If you haven't ever been to Creation, I highly recommend going. The speakers are great, the music is great and it's a time to really draw close to God.
Any takers for Creation '09?

Each year at Creation they have a candlelight ceremony.
Everyone gets a candle and the flame is carried across the crowd.
Can you imagine this in a crowd of 80,000 people?
It's an incredible moment and what a vivid example of a city on a hill!

"You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in Heaven."

Matthew 5:14-16

Candelight Ceremony

Kim & Brian

Sometimes it's hard to see the resemblence between siblings,
but in this picture, even though it's blury, it's unmistakable!
We had a rough start and couldn't seem to keep the rain away,
thus Mike's crazy set-up for cooking hot dogs!

Each day we set off on our LONG trek to the main stage,
Brian kept trying to make it easier to carry everything!
Our time at Creation, it was dark and this pic didn't focus well!
