Final Fling 08!

Five Days of Knights (A life of service to the king)

Final Fling was awesome this year! (Not that any other year wasn't) We had such a good time learning, growing, having awesome conversations, and just hanging out! We went to Lake Casitas, which is in Ventura. We had the best of both worlds, the beach and a lake! This years theme was pretty much awesome, Alan and Braden taught on how to live a life of service to THE KING, they picked out great examples from the Bible of people who dedicated their lives to following the Lord and taught on different things we could learn from each one. This is how a normal day went: Get up, sunrise singing, breakfast, game, worship, sermon, beach (or activity), lunch, continue activity/beach, dinner, worship, sermon, game, campfire, hanging out, sleep/talking in the tents (which was awesome!). Needless to say I had a good time, but I guess it helps that we have the most awesome Junior Highers ever!!!

Sand Angel...duh

She pretty much rocks... this picture was taken just after she won a arm wrestling contest with a guy staff member (cough Scott cough), who cares that her arm was numb for 15 minuets afterwards :) She still won!

Whoa...Alan is shrinkning?

Junior highers and sand... a lot of people got burried last week.

Such fun girls! Carly really got some air!

Thomas the shark :)

I love these girls!

Hannah and Anna...

Nothing says camping like fooseball!

Braden and Alan split the sermons. They did a great job!
We had a lot of fun on this trip! It was such a joy to watch kids grow closer to their savior, I know I had some awesome small group times with my girls. The guys did a great job of planning this camp!

Birthdays, Beaches, and Berthiaume's

Gary's 60th Birthday was on the 4 of July, so the whole family headed up to Morro Bay for a couple days. It was great we were about a 2 minuet walk from the beach. Here are some pics...

Ethan and I

They were so cute! And I think a little emabarrassed about this kiss being caught on camera, but all there boys said they wanted a copy of this.

I asked Gary and Keith to take off their glasses so there wouldn't be a flare in the picture. Gary started pretending he was blind and grabbing Alan's face. I'm not exactly sure why Kevin is grabbing the air though...

This boy is to photogenic, seriously it's almost impossiable to take a bad picture of him. Lock up your daughters people...

Cammy, she's always being a ham but once the camera comes out she gets shy.

Alan being a little brother...

...and Andrew being a big brother!

The birthday guy.


Sisters in law


Mama Berthiaume

This is Alan's dog Rocky. Rocky lives in Bakersfeild with his parents but whenever Alan is around you know where Rocky's loyalties are, he loves Alan to death!

Alan doesn't like this picture so much...but I do...shhh don't tell him I posted it.
