Happy April to you!! 🙂
John and I decided to skip our “stay-cation
” ideas this year
, and head out for a family fun road trip! What a great time we all had! Woo Hoo! 🙂
Our journey included driving 876+ miles to visit our dear friends in Charlotte, NC. Thankfully my amazing Facebook friends shared lots of “traveling with kids” road trip ideas. What fun! 🙂
(And thank you, April, for sending personlized road trip games for my kids. What a blessing!)
Our trip included lots of fun and laughter…..
Great friends and trips to Starbucks (picture: April from Va, Erin from NC, and me @ Starbucks)…
We also spent the night at Great Wolf Lodge in Charlotte, NC. Everyone insisted I have my picture taken with this video arcade game. Can you guess why???
John gave me the gift to spend one afternoon reading my Bible (alone) in the NC sun. EXCEPT I didn’t realize the sun was so bright! See sunburn picture below. It was painful!…..
And on the way home, we spent three days in the Smokey Mountains in Gatlinburg, TN. Beautiful!!
My adventurous guys…
View from our wonderful hotel (thanks for the recommendation, Julie Sanders!)
Old Mill for lunch in Pigeon Forge, TN. Yum! 🙂
We even stopped by to visit my grandma and special aunt in Southern Indiana. 🙂
Thankfully during our time away (and many miles on the road!) ~ I had lots of time to read, pray, and study. I thanked God for *you*, my She Sparkles readers, and asked God to bless you in a very special way!!!
As much fun as it is to be away with my family, it’s always good to be “home sweet home”. Except now the “non-fun” job of un-packing!!!
Thanks for stopping by *She Sparkles*! May God fill your day with much joy, love and laughter!!!
Sweet blessings ~
P.S. May I please ask…would you please pray for me? I’ll be speaking at a MOPS Spring Luncheon in West Branch, MI on Tuesday morning at 10:00 AM. I’ll be sharing my testimony. Would you please pray that God would prepare the hearts of the women who will hear my story, and that my words would bear much life-changing, Kingdom advancing fruit? As we know, prayer is the work!! THANK YOU so much! 🙂 How can I pray for you????
