Sunday Afternoon

What a hot weekend we had! Yesterday it was over 90 degrees! (Don't worry Mer, it's not going to stay that way, today it is cool and cloudy and windy.) So after church, (just Drew and I went, Ava still has a cold) we got out the whale pool! The kids put on their bathing suits and had so much fun playing outside in the water. It was a really nice Sunday afternoon. I had one of those experiences when you catch yourself completely enjoying the moment, and realize how perfect everything is RIGHT NOW. I wish it could be that way always. I took a cute video and got some funny photos from our afternoon.

At church our pastor discussed why God allows suffering, a subject I have wrestled with a lot. I thought he did a very good job with the sermon and I may write more about that later. In the meantime, if you'd like to hear for yourself what he said you can listen to that here.

Molly had a "water play day" on Sunday too! That's funny because I totally had that "peaceful bliss" too! It must be all that Vitamin B from the sun! :)

Love the pics!

I love those ENJOYING RIGHT NOW moments. They are feelings you will hold onto forever.

The kids looked like they had a blast! I just love Ava's sweet voice. I am so jealous of your grass....I haven't had grass since I moved to Arizona. I wanted to get Arianna a nice pool when we move and I love the whale pool, but I don't have the grass to put it on. I hope you enjoy many more days. I know exactly what you mean and I think I'll have to check out the link you posted.

Take Care,
