These are pictures from the house that we stayed at while we were in Palmer and the views were amazing. Silly me I didn't get an actual picture of the house, but we stayed at a facility called ACT ministries with Craig and Crystal and another family that were there for the wedding as well. The kids had a great time playing together and it was nice for the adults to have some relaxation and fellowship.
Aaron and Jenna were married at 3pm on August 23, 2008. It was a beautiful cerimony and we were glad to be able to attend. This young couple will be joining our short term staff on camp when they return from their honeymoon, and we look forward to having them. Chad and I enjoyed seeing old friends, this time around Chad was the photographer because I had to stay in the back with Heidi, who did not feel the need to sit still or be quiet. The funny thing was that there were about 10 of us in the back by the end of the wedding trying to keep our little ones under wraps!!
After the we went back to where we were staying and enjoyed a peaceful night with just our family, as the other families left after the wedding to go home, and after we had the kids in bed Chad and I watched the Olympics and spent some alone time together. At about 9:45pm we here a banging noise and I went to the window and there down in the valley was the fireworks display being put on by the fair! We could see everything but the smallest ground fireworks. It was fun to watch and I enjoyed the whole show, which lasted for about 30 minutes or so. On Sunday we cleaned up the house and then drove home so Chad could be rested for work the next day. We had a great time and were thankful that we could take a break from our everyday routine. We even saw a beluga whale on the way home, but of course there was no where to pull off and take any pictures, and it doesn't work taking pictures at 70 miles an hour so again I have yet to get a picture of the whales :).
