Deer Valley Days

We have been looking for a way to enjoy summer camp with our girls and this year we found it!
Introducing YMCA Deer Valley Family Camp
We had heard of Deer Valley from some friends at church who recommended it as their best family vacation.  So this year we got in off the waiting list and tried it out!
WOW! Once we got over the fact that we really were adults (used to certain luxuries) at summer camp, we could really have fun!  Below is a pictorial essay of our week away!
Fun for Kids!

Hiking, Mt. Davis and days at Big Springs
For all the sing a longs, bug juice, campfires, and more, Deer Valley was the place for us.  Maybe it is for you too!

Prayers for October

Is it really October???  No seriously is October almost over???
Wow this has been a long month.

Please join us in praying for the following intentions this month:

For Cody and Caleb and continuing on their roads of recovery from surgeries in September.

For Marty, for his recovery and battle against cancer and its minions, and for Holly and his family for strength to see this battle through.

For my girls, as we mourn the death of our sweet pet, bring peace and understanding to their hearts and lives.

In honor of Mary this month we pray the Memorare:

Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thine intercession was left unaided.
Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins, my mother; to thee do I come, before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer me.
