San Diego ~ Passport to Purity Weekend

This weekend we went to San Diego for Kennady's Passport to Purity weekend :)  We praise Jesus for making this time so sweet and precious - special one-on-one time with our sweet Sis!!! Our flight was canceled so we had to fly first to LA then to SD - we had a 3 hour layover in LA so we started out Passport to Purity projects in the airport ;)  God made it special none the less!

Mommy and Sis are ready to go :)

Sissy working on one of her projects in the airport ;)
Here is Sis made out of play dough. We then made 2 other "friends"...one a great friend who encourages her in God's ways and builds her up. She and the friend share a great friendship and grow close (we then mixed the two different play dough friends together and it made a very nice color). Then a bad friend comes into the picture and begins to corrupt these two girls and their good character (we then mixed all 3 play dough colors together and it made a yucky grey, bland color).

And here is the contrast of the bright pretty green and the bland grey - showing that if we really want to shine for Jesus we need to choose our friends wisely.

Lunchtime ;)

We then got to our hotel and finished the rest of our projects - so much fun and SO powerful!!! What a wonderful gift to have this material for us to have this sweet time with our girl before she enters Jr High! Then we headed off to a nice dinner ;)

The next morning we woke up and after breakfast we finished our last bit of our purity sessions and projects...then we were off to Sea World!

Ready for a fun day :)

Walking from our hotel to Sea World over a bridge -  Sea World is behind us ;)

Our first ride - The Manta...Sissy's favorite!!! She ended up riding it 10 times ;)  I only made it once - fun ride but made me way too dizzy! Brod made it 8!!! (barely)   ;)

Shamu ;)

In the Shark Encounter

We are so proud of the godly young woman that God has created you to be! His Light shines in you!! We had such special one-on -one time with you :) You are a joy to have as a daughter- so sweet, helpful and responsible! At 12, your sweet innocence is delightful to see. We told you at Sea World that you remind us of a dolphin ~ always playful, joyful, friendly and energetic. Our prayer: that you will set an example for others in speech, in life, in love, in faith, and in purity (1 Tim 4:12). 
We love you, girl!!!  

"To Him who is able to keep you from falling and to present you before His Glorious Presence without fault and with great joy - to the only God our Savior be glory, majesty, power and authority, through Jesus Christ our Lord, before all ages, now and forevermore! Amen." Jude 24

On our way home - can't believe we actually wore you out!!! It doesnt' happen very often ;)

Excited to get home and see the boys ~ they had a little vacation of their own being pampered at Nana and Papa's :) Made-to-order breakfasts, movies, football games...too much fun!!!
Nana said you boys were VERY helpful ;) Claire also spent the night so you got to help with her as well!
