Hi! I missed you guys.
It's been a fun and crazy summer. It's been full of Camp Blue Haven Youth Camp, lots of church meetings and focus and a great trip to see our kids in Phoenix and then a weekend in California. Just a heads up- if you don't care anything about seeing pictures from Disneyland you might want to click on to another blog. Oh yes, there will be somewhat witty comments about the pics but still- it's a Disney loving blog post. :)
We enjoyed a few days in Phoenix with our sweet oldest boy and his wife. (More about that on a later post.)
We stopped at a Dunkin' Donuts in honor of our nephew and cousin Colt McCoy because well- we love him and we love coffee.
The perfect stop.
The last trip we took to Disneyland.
What cutie pies.
Especially the boy in the red shorts. He makes me smile.
"I have been driven many times upon my knees by the overwhelming conviction that I had nowhere else to go. My own wisdom and that of all about me seemed insufficient for that day."

"At what point shall we expect the approach of danger? By what means shall we fortify against it? Shall we expect some transatlantic military giant, to step the Ocean, and crush us at a blow? Never! All the armies of Europe, Asia and Africa combined, with all the treasure of the earth (our own excepted) in their military chest; with a Buonaparte for a commander, could not by force, take a drink from the Ohio, or make a track on the Blue Ridge, in a trial of a thousand years. At what point, then, is the approach of danger to be expected? I answer, if it ever reach us it must spring up amongst us. It cannot come from abroad. If destruction be our lot, we must ourselves be its author and finisher. As a nation of freemen, we must live through all time, or die by suicide.

They were troopers. There were, however references to some scene in "Shrek" while boating through.
Yes, she would.
It's been fun.
Talk to you soon.
(Oh, look- a normal smile.) :)
