Trip #1 Meeting Great grandma (Nan)! We spent a day with Nan (on her 88th birthday) and Yohanna had a great time playing, shopping, and eating. Of course, she found an "Arni" look-a-like at Nan's house that she loved! What a joy it was to watch Nan play with a new great grandchild!
Trip #2 We had the privilege to take the seniors from the youth group on a trip to a surprise destination. We traveled with 7 teenagers and several other youth leaders to Gatlinburg, TN. We stayed in an awesome 3 story cabin and had lots of fun in the Smokey Mountains. Yohanna liked hiking so much that she fell asleep in the backpack carrier on Scott's back. It was a joy to be with friends and some of the most awesome teenagers we know!
Trip #3 Family gathering in Michigan for 4th of July. Yohanna had a wonderful time playing with her 5 cousins! She met 4 of them for the first time! Yohanna went to the beach for the first time and loved negotiating the waves head first! Celebrating the 4th of July with family - what a joy!
Trip #4 Camping! Again we got to hang out with cool teenagers. Despite a lot of nighttime rain, it was a blast! We did a bit of hiking (Yohanna fell asleep again while hiking), mountain biking, cooking over the fire, swimming, boating, fishing, and worship/fellowship around the campfire. Yohanna is just like her mommy - loves popcorn!
Well, the next trip is a visit to Nana and Papa's house to visit cousins Dakota, Grace, and Mikayla and Aunt Carla. Thank you Lord for all the fun stuff of summer!
