Scot's Race Car

This is the race car that Scot built for the stage. He made it out of PBC pipe and cardboard. Pretty impressive huh?

E was excited that she was finally "too old" for VBS :) However, she did get to help with VBS! This year she was in the snack area along with her friend M.

This is the girls delivering food to some of the workers. She had a great time...and how could you not when you get to spend all morning with your best friend!

The Trampoline

While we were traveling home from SC on Friday, our little town experienced some very strong winds. It was around 10 pm when we arrived home and initially did not see any damage.

Saturday morning, Scot and I were sitting in the LR talking and all of a sudden I realized the trampoline was not in its usual spot. We went outside to see if the wind moved it across the backyard, but we could not see it! We got in the truck and drove around the property and the neighboring land. We finally spotted it down the dirt road that runs beside our house.

This is what we found....

although we are sad that it got demolished, we are thankful it did not get blown into our house and cause any further damage.

Ice Cream at the Park

We enjoyed free homemade ice cream at a local park. It is Dairy Month and so they were highlighting it at the park. It was a fun summer evening eating ice cream....

petting the cows...

and even learning to milk a cow.

All you coffee addicted friends of mine will appreciate this picture....

We saw this coffee tanker truck on the interstate just outside of ATL. We have never seen one before and it just cracked us up.

Have you ever seen a coffee tanker before?
