Fun Weekends

Two weekends ago we headed down to Portland to celebrate Haley's graduation. We had no idea the FUN we were getting ourselves into! We spent our days with the Scharn and Thul families...two "MN" families that made us feel right at home!
Here are a few pictures from the great trip!

Pam carving a watermelon into a volleyball. As Ben says, she has a gift for those sorts of things. I wish I would have taken a picture when it was done with all the fruit in it, bummer.

This weekend we headed down to Burlington, WA where Ben and his friend Justin ran a 1/2 marathon. We hadn't had a "WA" weather day in weeks. Meaning cold and rainy all day, but of course that is how Saturday was. They still did amazing! They ran great times!

Their legs were full of mud after racing out on some bluck roads! :)

Ben even got to take a ribbon home for placing 4th in his age group...hilarious, but awesome!

Ben was so glad he got to train with Justin and run the race with him because today was his last day in WA. Yesterday we had a "farewell" party for him, which was a blast but we are so sad to see him go.

We are coming home or I should say coming to MN in a little over a week and we CAN NOT wait! We pray you all are doing wonderful! We miss you and love you!

This verse has been on my heart all weekend, so I had to share it.
"Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience." Colossians 3:12
