My view of an imperfect but wonderful life

Our last trip to Fresno (for now)

Well, once again this weekend was quite eventful! Not only did I go to the Pantages Thursday (as you already know), we (Jason, Justin and I) left Friday morning to spend our 4th of July weekend with the Montanos! It was so much fun, but a lot of car time was involved lol. When we got there, we snacked and played Skip-Bo, then ate. When it started getting dark we played volleyball and got to see some of the fireworks. The boys were staying with the Montano's family who lives on the property, so their cousins came over for games after they got home from fireworks. We didn't get to bed until late, well really early that morning, and then got up around 7ish to go to outreach. After outreach we headed up to Yosemite to have a picnic! It was so so so beautiful, but the drive was not an hour hehehe. Poor Nicole drove and all together it was about a 5 hour drive (is that close enough??). But the chicken salad sandwiches were wonderful and the fruit salad and just everything. Then we left and went back to get ready for the play that night. Annie Get Your Gun, was so neat! I've loved the songs, but now I got to see the play too! Once again we stayed up rather late that night. The next day of course was church, we attended church in Pinedale that morning where I was told I was to sing, but the Lord moves in miraculous ways lol! There was just an altar call instead of a special! Then church that night was in Fresno, it was a wonderful service as well. Afterwards we went to Doghouse Grill and ate some WONDERFULL tritip sandwiches. Beau, Andy and Mark met us there, and the pictures you will see taken in the restaurant were mainly taken by Beau. Lol.

We left Fresno Monday morning. I was hoping that I could get back by noon to work, but I didn't get there til one because of some traveling problems lol. After dinner that night, I laid down to rest my eyes, and fell totally asleep (on the floor since I don't have a bed right now) and did not get up until 1 just to switch to the couch! And then I did not get out of bed until 7:30! So I should feel rested.... Strange enough, I don't! But I had fun and that is all that matters! I miss my friends

Erica Rose said...

And whoever wrote the Acts 4:12.... that was really random. There was no rhyme or reason

Bekki said...

That was seriously random. I was reading the comments and I was very very confused. LOL The scripture doesn't even have anything to do with the posts or the comments. lol.

Erica Rose said...

My thoughts exactly lol!

Nila said...

Beautiful pictures, Erica. Enjoyed this blog. As for that 'different' post ... it was, um... unbelievable. That's why the writer kept himself anonymous because the 'random' comment was way out there. We all believe in Acts 4:12... in fact, we believe in the whole Bible. Why didn't they just say "The Holy Bible" and be done with it. LOL
Ah, well, there are those kinds of people in this world too. God bless 'em! :-)

Bekki said...

Amen and Amen. LOL

Erica Rose said...

Lol That's my Momma!!!

Hey Erica,
I love the picture that has the comment "This is what happens when you listen to Justin." In fact, the keys hooked on to your skirt look like the ones I lost. Do you have them still? LOL

Nicole

Erica Rose said...

HAHAHAH! Hey don't go blaming me! Lol! Those are the ones that I remembered wearing that morning as I was packing which brought about the finding of my keys that I had lost which somehow ended up somewhere that I hadn't placed them! I did enjoy the picture of me as well as the picture of you. Spinning in circles while looking at the starry sky is dangerous to your brain's health!!!

Anonymous said...

I was merely asking the question lol! HEE HEE....Oh so true about the danger to the brain! Straight thinks me more any hardly!

Erica Rose said...

HAHAHAH! You sound like that one dwarf from Lifehouse's Snow White!!! I would so do that whole night over, without me almost breaking my pinky twice, or our team losing!!!! LOL

Anonymous said...

Oh Yesh! The only reason we lost was cause only one team member was having a bad attitude. LOL. Poor team member was the only one making an effort cuz the one team member was the only one team member playing without flip flops, SO THEREFORE.....we lost.

Sarah said...

you lost because my mom, justin, and I were clearly the better team! haha jk jk

Erica Rose said...

**Sticking tongue out at Sarah** You know what Nicole??? You and I ARE winners! No matter what anyone says! No matter what the weapon is I want you to know that I win!!!!

Nila said...
