This month went by quickly! It has been a great month. 

It began with the 4th of July.  We had a great time at my Texas Parent's house.  Here is a picture of the fabulous food. 

The next happening was Six Flags.  I had never been there before.  I had ridden on a couple of roller coasters, but nothing like this!  I had a blast.  Batman had to have been my favorite ride, followed by Superman, the ride that I almost refused to go on.  Actually, I did refuse to go on it, but was forced to anyway.  Ok, I may have relented a bit. 

Next. I'm sure that some of you were wondering how I did on the second anniversary of Jared's passing.  I will admit there was a moment where tears came to my eyes.  It was mostly because I let myself go back to that day and remember.  That is something that I don't do often, I try not to live in the past.  Instead, I prefer to focus my "normal" thoughts of Jared on the good times we had, not the hospital and the following days.  All in all it was a good day, spending it with friends and family.  God gave me a peace about it that surpasses all understanding!

I was able to spend this past weekend traveling in the state of Texas.  I went to the panhandle and it is so beautiful.  This was one of my favorite trips this summer.  Here are some pictures from that adventure.

The adventures are not finished for the month. I'm off to a retreat this weekend in another part of Texas.  I'm enjoying the travels but I am ready to be home on a weekend!

Hope y'all are having a good summer!

P.S. We've gotten a couple of cherry tomatoes from the garden, but I think the plus 100+ temperatures we've had all summer is doing a number on most of the plants.  We may not get too much out of it, but it was fun doing it.
