Yesterday my husband and I celebrated our 7th anniversary! It was anything but boring!

The day started with this:

That's right...500 balloons! What a labor of love that was. Thank you teen boys!

Franklin then took some of the boys in the youth group to play golf, while I took the girls to the zoo.

We then celebrated our 7 years by eating out and playing video games at the Family Fun Center. We earned 1396 points after playing a ton of games based on pure luck...we were so close to getting the jackpot of tickets on this one game...never send us to Vegas. Fischer was excited about the trinkets we brought home.

This is my favorite picture of the day. Why you ask?

Because it is the reason that we love our church family at Southwest so much. You see the older man on the right hand side of the picture? He's surrounded by a brood of loud, excited teenagers...and he's still smiling! Our elders love our young people and they like to see them having a good time. The teens were yelling, laughing and running through the office...but he didn't care...he was just enjoying their zest for life. They may be out of touch with their culture(sometimes we are too) but they care about their spiritual life. We are so blessed to work under an eldership that truly cares about our young people.
