Summerfest Parade

Last Sunday, our church entered a float in the Summerfest Parade (in the afternoon, of course). 🙂 It was SO much fun. We worked on the float for a few days before, and lots of church people turned out to walk, hand out tracts and popsicles, and ride on the float. We were able to pass out a few hundred gospel tracts.

Simple, but cute, our float actually won first prize!

The babies were so good. They had an umbrella shielding them from the sun.

Lined up and ready to go

Jamin and I walked and pushed Jackson in the stroller.

It was a very long, hot and tiring Sunday, but “it’s a good tired.” We all had so much fun. It all went pretty well for a first time

Then we had a flood! It rained so hard, starting Monday night, through Wednesday afternoon. The power was out all over West Union. Wal-Mart was even closed because of it. Pretty hard to believe, I know. 🙂 Our church basement got flooded pretty terribly and still smells sour today. The pictures are terrible, but you can get an idea of the water.

We actually ended up having church in the basement Wednesday because the tornado sirens went off just before church started, and there were warnings up until around 7:30 or 8:00. It’s been pretty interesting around our church lately.

Now here are just a few sweet home pictures of you-know-who.

Jackson and Daddy reading a book…so sweet!

Thank you for stopping by!
