It's been a great day - I love Sundays.It's always the toss up of do we do something FUN,
or, do we relax the whole day as in napping,watching TV,
When it's a rainy Sunday a part of me is so happy that the decision is made for me...No question of doing anything outdoors.
....... Before I was married and still living at home Sunday afternoon was nap time!We would hurry eat lunch and clean up the kitchen than off to ZZZZZ land...the whole house was quiet. About 3 or 4 o'clock Dad would get out the Stir Crazy and pop corn, we would all gather at the table/kitchen , than we would pull out leftovers from lunch and invariably ice cream was for dessert. This was Sunday supper.
HMMM ..Fond memories.
To this day I often crave a snack at about 4ish O'clock on Sundays.I love the smell of popcorn on Sunday afternoons.
Today, Grant was our "only child" all afternoon. Poor guy- he fell victim to my plan to get some exercise and enjoy Island Park . Of course,this took convincing! It was beautiful but REALLY hot on our walk.
|We did take a break and sat by a little beach on the other side of the bridge to rest a bit.The breeze felt so cool under the bridge|

|GOOFY as can be! I told him today if I wrote all the funny things he said I would have a book and be rich! So witty!|
|Than...R.E.L.A.X.A.T.I.O.N.~ Island park ...I LOVE this place!|
I wonder...How do you like to spend your Sundays? Leave me a comment!
I promised pictures of our time on the east coast.So here they are...
|Inside the car I enjoyed a good read.....|
|Outside ,the love bugs covered our car. At one point we had to stop and clean off our windshield...Sorry for this gross-ness but it was part of the trip!|
|Grant and Courtney's band made 3rd place at State(I couldn't see Courtney :( )|
|What was left at Cheeburger Cheeburger ...it was DELICIOUS!|
|Shelbey and Courtney who knows what the conversation is! These girls are like sisters.|
|Grant and Garrett|
|Outside the restaurant ...wow Ritzy City!|
|Grant performed his solo on Friday morning....lots of prayer and practice! HE got first place!|
A neat side story....20 minutes or so before Grant's time was to perform his nerves got the best of him.We prayed with him and he went to walk it off a little.I got on my cell phone and text a bunch of friends asking them to pray.....they prayed.BUT some didn't get the text right away and hours after I received responses saying, "We are praying".The verse where we are told that God knows what we are going to say even before it leaves our lips brought new meaning to me that day! In our human minds it seemed as though it was too late to pray ...God knew and used those prayers!
