The past three months our lives had moved at a lively pace. Pushing one-hundred percent on the irrigation work. Planting and tending the gardens. Wrapping up school for the spring. Serving in children's ministry, both in Nebraska and Iowa. Investing time in local ministry. Several weekends of touring. Planning our fall tours.
And since we're just winding up with all the irrigation work, Dad declared that it was time for a little family fun. Our family likes to work hard together -- and then play hard! With a cousin's wedding in the direction of a favorite almost-second-home, we took some time to celebrate the close of irrigation season.

And yes, a family favorite spot is Silver Dollar City. It was such a treat to take in the Bluegrass and BBQ festival. Lots of great pickin' & grinnin'. Not to mention all the other attractions that has made SDC a popular family stop.

Charissa is a brave coaster-rider! She jumps in with the older ones on all the fast rides.
Ummm....yes, and more smiles!
And we finished up the weekend by dressing up for our cousin's wedding.
Annual seasons of life are refreshing, aren't they?! In early spring we're excited to get out in the fields to work, sweat, and see how much we can accomplish. But its also sweet to see that chapter close until fall. We'll now be switching gears to music once again. Working on new songs and arrangements -- and Lord-willing, a new recording and songbook. We're also excited about hitting the road for quite a few tours this summer and early fall.
Are you ready for summer?
"And there you shall eat before the L your God,
and you shall rejoice in all to which you have put your hand,
you and your households,
in which the L your God has blessed you."
