So we have now lived in Fairmont for two years as of June 14th, and the summers are my favorite. This past week of course, we were busy with VBS; but we also had a special lady in our church named Joyce go to Heaven. We are happy she is no longer suffering, but sad for us and all of her family and friends who were always uplifted by her sweet spirit. Our church is blessed with many people like Joyce who always uplift you when you see them.
Then we also had a couple of fun outings over the weekend to help us unwind. We went out with some friends Friday night, and Saturday we went to the zoo and Mall of America. The zoo has camel rides this summer, and they also have a new seal exhibit which was really fun. We also stopped at IKEA and got Ava what she calls a "pwincess bed", or in regular talk, a canopy for her bed. We are looking forward to another busy week this week. Lots of play dates! We say yes as much as possible because there's nothing much better than time spent with friends. It's how memories are made! And then this weekend is the 4th of July, so there will be lots of doings with that! Fireworks, picnics, friends, and maybe a flea market! So much fun! So happy summer is HERE!!
A sweet lady in our church is giving out some of her collections to the church kids, so Ava and Jack scored with a Precious Moments doll and a model car. Ava especially loved the little goose that came with her doll. I guess she's more of an animal person. Ha!
