Vacation 2008 wrap-up

Sunday evening, we headed to a HUGE 4th of July event sponsored by Thomas Road church, in Lynchburg. The church uses this special time of the year as an opportunity to witness to literally thousands of people. They had so much to do and it was all FREE!! Here are some highlights...

The kids loved the inflatable bouncy houses and slides.

They had horse ride set up, too. You had to be 3 to ride, so Collin missed out, but Noah was able to ride. Parents weren't allowed to accompany the children, so this made him feel even more grown up.
"Where's Noah?"

Our little Cow Poke.

At one point it began to rain, so we went to the van and watched a dvd while the rain passed through. On the way back to the "festival" we got to ride the shuttle bus. Noah ALWAYS asks to ride school buses or RTA buses - now he has. This was a big moment for him, but unfortunately it was overshadowed by him not having his backpack. He said he needed it for the bus.:)

This is the most accurate of all of our family picture's taken during our trip. Collin was cranky almost the whole time, now I understand because he looks like he has shot up about 2 - 3 inches. Anyway, this picture is entitled, "if you can't beat 'Em join 'Em.

Collin and Noah ABSOLUTELY LOVE Aunt Jen! Here is my favorite shot of Collin and Jenny. She can really get him laughing!

The evening ended with a giant motorcycle rally, gospel presentation, live music and fireworks.

The next morning, at 4:30!! we hit the road! Thank you, Aunt Jen and Miss Rachael for your hospitality! Thank you Jenny for showing us a wonderful time! We love you!
