Parcel of Pics

Time doesn't forgive. What is done. I am learning that more and more these days, when there are so many choices to make, being made, been made....

But at the same time, I am not afraid. Because I know that no matter what choices I make, God will work them together for good, even when I know I've done the wrong thing. Somehow, it is a part of His plan to teach me...something.

Well, you ready for a parcel of pictures? *overload*

The 4th was super fun. It couldn't have been better if I had been wearing a cape. {Well......maybe.....}

We started out leaving our house 30 min late to go witness at the Marshfield town square before the parade. I was sad because I have never gone witnessing before. We made it in time for about 20 min of it though and then the parade started!!!

In the middle of the parade, I went to the booth and helped facepaint, which was AWESOME fun. I'd never done it before and, eeeeeek, it was cool. I should have taken a pic of one of the adorable little kids I did....but alas, I did not think ahead... :'(
{pic coming}
After the parade we went to Jonni and Rachel's church for potluck, hanging out, and sports. I don't have any pics of that, but hopefully Jonni will get me some here and then I'll plug them in!! :D We played v-ball and softball. Twas fun. My first time playing softball since I was a wee 13-year-old lassie....
After that, we went home, regroomed ourselves, and headed over to Jonni's older sis's house for supper and fireworks. The food was delish. I actually wasn't too hungry, but I had a yummy salad. I like greens. MmmmMmmmm......
On the way to fireworks. We went to a big ol' park to watch the city fireworks.
the clouds....speechless....
Keaton went on this thing...yup, he's up there, but you can't see him. He's about to slide down...
Then NN and I sparred. THAT was awesome. Specially since we were the only girls over 10 in line and even then there were only two others. Haha. We're awesome. ~_*
We have victory!!!!!!!!
Then Tangled made an appearance and my pathetic phone would NOT take a decent picture... :P :'( Seriously though, there were a lot of these and they were amazing and I am going to have them at my wedding.
MUM! Looking pretty...
Abrienne {NN} and I...
Jonni and I!! Hanging before fireworks. We did a piggyback race against her bro and another friend. We one. It was fun!!! But no pics... :(
Friday I spent ALL day {and night} with and friend {Lynnea} who just got back from Japan!!! She is 1/4th Japanese and her grandma took her there. We had so much fun catching up, making pies, playing vball, football {well, we just threw it....}, jumping on the trampoline, and chatting. We also watched MULAN!!! LOVE that movie. So cute!!
Isn't she the most stinkin' pretty thing you've ever seen?!?!?!?!
We stayed the night, as I said, and laid on the trampoline all night until like 3ish them went inside and hung out. Lynnea had to go to bed then cause she had to work the next day {so did I, but my work IS at her house....} but her other sis Lauren {I've posted about her before!!!} came home at midnight and WE stayed up till 6 talking. Then I got up at 9 to work. Came home. Cleaned the yard. Made supper. Weeded. Wrote a wee bit. Played Piano {Reflection, to be exact}. Took a walk with NN down our road. Read. And now I'm chilling here on my bed. Listening to epic songs, I might add.
All in all, a good last few days. Some things could have been better. Some things...were perfect. That's the way of life.


  1. Awesome pics!! Looks like a super fun day. I looove fireworks. I only see them on New Years though (it's illegal to do fireworks in Australia without a license...and let's just say, not "anyone" gets a license.) XD

  2. "Time doesn't forgive", yes but God does. :)

    I love your 4th of July pictures, annnnnnd the quote about wishing your eyes could take pictures.

  3. This is a lovely post. :-) I had so much fun with you on the fourth! I am really glad you guys were able to make it. :D

  4. Ah, fireworks! Fireworks are such the best, aren't they? There is something quite magical about them.

    Those pies look DELICIOUS! Now I am hungry. I wonder what sort of fruit we have in the house? Or cookies?


I'm sincerely wondering if you are going to comment. Given you just read that blog post (or maybe skim read, at best, or maybe you've just skipped to the bottom). But, either way, whether you read it or not, NOW you have no doubt that I am crazy, are wondering if I am worthy of your time, and if it even matters that you say something. BUT, it does!!! Drop me a line! Can't tell you I will always respond coherently, but I WILL respond! And the comments... Well, they rather make my days. <3
