Hatteras Island 2010

We have truly been BLESSED by this past week being beach bums in Hatteras North Carolina. Pastor Billy and Ms. Erin's hospitality to allow our family to stay the week in their ministry house was amazing. They truly went out of their way to make sure we enjoyed our vacation. We were able to use their Kayaks and Pastor Billy came out one morning and took John and the boys on a ride on his boat and pulled them around on rafts.
We pray that God continues to use Pastor Billy and HICF to rock the Island in His name!
We enjoyed the quiet family time away. We would spend our days laying at the beach and tanning ;) and enduring the crazy waves in the ocean. God's creations are so amazing... the water was so blue and clear...there were times you would be out in the water and you would see this pool of fish swim right by (I still haven't decided if that is nasty or and one of the days we were out at the beach we were able to enjoyed watching 5 dolphin swim and jump!
Then we would head back to the house and enjoy family dinners together and then we would watch movies ( we saw some good ones...I highly recommend to you "Letters to God", "Glory Road", and "Facing the Giants" and "The last Song") (OH...and Highly would not recommend to you all 3 Lord of the by the last movie we saw the boys brought out the tissue before it started for BOYS!!!!!!!
We enjoyed some really fun times just sitting and talking and joking and imagining.
Thank YOU GOD! We really need this week to be reminded of how much you love us and provide and care for us!
