Birthday, Baptism, and Border Trip. (And More!)

Standard

Hi everyone! I have a big long post for you today, so beware. ๐Ÿ˜‰ XD

Hey, I just realized I could call this post The Three B’s for short… XD ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜œ

Anyway…! ๐Ÿ™ƒ

We had a really busy and exciting two weeks during my media fast. One of the first things that happened was the birthday party of my friend, Karen. She turned 15. In Mexico, when a girl turns 15 she’s basically considered an adult and eligible for marriage. (Wow, that’s crazy isn’t it??? I can’t even imagine… XD) Anyway, she asked me to take pictures at the party for her. Which I did, and enjoyed doing! ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜€

Here are a few of them… ๐Ÿ™‚

There was also a piรฑata for the kids, although the adults joined in some too. I did not get any good picture of that since it was night, but here’s something from my Dad’s phone… Terrible picture, but it’ll do… ๐Ÿ˜‰

And, in other, really exciting news, we had our first baptism at the church we’re planting here in Mexico!! ๐Ÿ˜€ It was a man named Alejandro (Alexander), and it’s been so awesome to see God working in his, and his wife’s, life. Praise the Lord!!! He is so good.

Here’s a slideshow I put together with the pictures I took during church last Sunday, the Baptism, and the meal afterwards. (Not to mention the water fight that was bound to happen when you have kids and young adults standing around with nothing much else to do… XD ) It was a great time. ๐Ÿ˜€


The day before yesterday my Dad, Philip, Bekah and I took a trip up to the El Paso, Texas to get our mail, and get some supplies. This time we planned on making it there and back in one day! ๐Ÿ˜€ Usually we have to stay a night in a hotel.

We got up at 3:00 and left at 3:30 am. We drove for a few hours until we got to a small town to get breakfast. We got food for all four of us, for the equivalent of $3.50 US dollars. We had to laugh about how much food for us all would have costed in the States, and how different Mexico and the States are from eachother! XD

We reached the border by around… 9:00 am I think. We crossed uneventfully, and drove to El Paso which was nearby the border crossing. We couldn’t go to Costco yet, since it opens at ten, so we went to Goodwill, where we bought… Nothing! Then we went to Savers, where we bought… Nothing! XD ๐Ÿ˜ฆ ;P After that, we went to Walmart, and a few other places. We ate lunch at Costco. Well, actually we got lunch at Costco, brought it to the car and ate it there! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Then we did a few other things, including picking up our mail, then heading across the border again. We were home by 9:30 that night! We were so tired… XD

Philip and I, while Dad and Bekah were in an auto parts store… And Dad left his phone. So… XD

And, yeah… I think that was most of the big things that happened… At least that I can think of. ๐Ÿ˜‰

In other random news….

Ohhhhh!!!!! There’s one thing Iย haveย to tell you guys!!! First you have to guess…

What, you don’t like to guess?

Ok, fine. ๐Ÿ˜‰ XD

We’re going… SOUTH!!! YES! To Alabama and Georgia… I am so excited!!! It’s mainly for a family reunion, since my Mom has lots of family there. We’re also going to get to see some friends for the first time. (I’m especially excited to finally get to meet my friend, Amie, from Crazy A!!! ๐Ÿ˜€ ) Anyway, it’s still almost a month until we leave. I think we leave on the 3rd or 4th of June… Something like that. ๐Ÿ™‚ We are all waaay excited!!! ๐Ÿ˜€

Before I leave, here is a really good quote I found recently. It really made me think.

Have you read any of the books I mentioned in this post? What do you think about the quote? Do you like longer, or shorter posts the best? (Or medium sized???) ๐Ÿ˜‰ย 

 

Iโ€™m Back!!!

Iโ€™m Back!!!

So, weโ€™re finally back from our two week โ€œfurloughโ€. ๐Ÿ˜€ We had an awesome time catching up with friends and family. In some ways, it seems like we were gone for such a long time, and in other ways it seemed so short. But, weโ€™re definitely very happy to be home again. ๐Ÿ™‚ All in all, we drove over 3,500 miles!!! :O It was a looooooooong drive, but worth it! ๐Ÿ˜€ To help pass the time we listened to Lamplighter Theater and Jonathan Park.

Here are some highlights of our trip.

Kansas

After Arizona, we drove up to Colorado for a couple days to spend time with my grandparents. โค And then we drove to Kansas, and stayed at the Cook Familyโ€™s house. They were so extremely hospitable to us!!! (After all, we are 11 people…:P ) We had so much fun with them!!! ๐Ÿ˜€ Playing flashlight tag and kick the kick the can, boating on the pond, and going to the zoo… It was a BLAST!! ๐Ÿ˜€

I am planing on making a video about the whole trip, as well, though it may take a while until itโ€™s finished. I have a few other videos I need to make first for my Mom, and they need to be a priority. ๐Ÿ™‚

So, my family and I are going on a two week trip too the states in a couple days. We will be traveling through several states, and my dad will speaking at a couple different churches. So, sadly, I wonโ€™t be posting anything for a couple weeks, maybe a little bit more. Just wanted to let you know real quick! =)

I hope that you are all having a great day!

Anonymously,

Rosy ;P

P.S. Contrary to what that picture of the map seems to indicate… No, we are not going to Paris! ย xD

Here is the third video about when we went to Colorado. This one is the longest one, because we went to the zoo, where I took lots of pictures and videos. xD

 

P.S.ย This morning I found this small leaf with some kind of eggs on it. The tiny eggs were empty (I think… :/), and there were baby bugs sitting next to them. It was so neat to see and photograph! ๐Ÿ™‚

Hello people! ๐Ÿ™‚ How has your August been so far? For us it has been great! (So far, of course!) Dad had a birthday, which you can read about here. ๐Ÿ˜€

So anyway, you may have also read a while back that we were going to Colorado. And I said I would vlog ( video blog) about it. Well, after quite a long while, I finally have the first three videos ready to post!!! ๐Ÿ˜€ The 4th (and probably last) is still a WIP, but will be up soon. So hereโ€™s the first video, and stay tuned for the next one very soon!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

 

Hope you enjoyed, and tell me what you think in the comments!!! ๐Ÿ™‚
