God's Amazing Creations

We also took a special trip to the Vancouver Aquarium this summer.  God is an incredibly creative and fantastic Creator!

Reading with Nana :-)

The Forest

Conquered by the forest (Stinging Nettle).

Preparing to conquer the forest!

Little Boys, Big Dreams

Matthew was in awe watching the contractor repair the fallen
power lines on our property.

What an amazing surprise for Matt to then be offered a ride
in the cherry picker after the repair was done!

The Fruits of Summer

One of the gorgeous hot days in August we went berry picking at a local farm.  What delicious fun (Sarah has face paint on)!

Radical Raptors

We've watched the Radical Raptors show at the Aldergrove Zoo many times but this was the first time Matthew got to hold a falcon!


Our family was privileged to spend a week at a retreat center outside of Calgary while Daddy led worship at a conference there. 
Our kids are amazing worshippers!

One night our artist friend worshipped by painting during
the musical worship time.

These are some of the paintings our family did during worship
(the big canvas at the bottom is the collection of all of the paintings done by participants during the week):

Aqua Blast Summer Camp

Bekah, Matt & Sarah started their summer off with a "blast" at summer camp.  What an awesome week of swimming, boot camp, zumba, freeze dance, art activities and fun with friends!  They loved it so much we did another week at the end of the summer.  Here are some of their fun creations:
