Celebrations

Happy Monday everyone!
.
What an wonderful weekend we had. Thursday we took the girls to King's Island for part of their birthday gift.
.

.
We spent the day going on rides. I wish I would have thought to get a picture of them in front of their favorite ride, Adventure Express. I bet they rode that ride at least eight times. It was nice, the park was not too busy so we were able to get on rides without much wait. The longest wait was on one of the water rides. Why is it the one who spends the most time on their hair always seems to get the wettest? LOL

The main reason we went to King's Island on Thursday was to go to Spirit Song. It is a 3 day long concert series including some of the biggest names in Contemporary Christian music. Below is a picture of Tenth Avenue North. They were fabulous! I wish I could have got a good picture of Third Day (ABSOLUTELY love them) but my point and shoot did not do well after dark. It was a long day but so worth it!

Friday afternoon we headed to Illinois to DH's parents' house for a wedding of a childhood friend of his. Their families have been close for many years and it was wonderful to see all of those friends of his families. They are always so sweet and I enjoy spending time with all of them. After a brunch Sunday morning we packed up and came home. I am exhausted but happy with lots of laundry to do.
.
I do have a prayer request for all of you though. My brother-in-law and his wife are expecting their second child at the beginning of September. She has been put on bed rest as of Thursday. They would appreciate your prayers. Their first sweet little girl was born a month early and we would love for this little peanut to go full term.
.
So, if you follow my blog, you know that I can't leave without a project or two. This first one I have to share was created using the color inspiration this week over at Emma's. Please stop by the blog to see the supply list and the other designer's amazing projects.

Have a fantastic week and thanks for stopping by!
