It's July already?!

Happy July everyone!!

I have not blogged in the l o n g e s t time! Let me tell you why....{this could be a while, though!!}
I have been EXTREMELY busy! So allow me to share.
Some people I know from out of state were here, and we had the most awesome time! They came to stay at our house for a long weekend! Also, at the same time, my older brother came home from school. We had so much fun playing spoons, going into the city, playing some game (I don't remember the name- but I did lose!) canoeing, and fishing. We went canoeing and fishing at the same time, and my friend and I we were rowing the canoe while the guys were doing to fishing. The guys almost tipped us a few times, but safe to say, we made it back to shore without tipping. On the way back to shore, the guys were standing up, rowing us back to shore, while the two of us girls just sat there! My brother was getting me really really wet, and so I yelled back to my friend if she was wet, and she said she was...but when we got out of the canoe, I saw otherwise...she just said that so she wouldn't get was a good time!
After they left we had to take my older brother back soon after. And then we had to get ready for vacation! We went to the beach with my mom's brother and his family, and had an awesome time! We saw so much sea life! Starfish (I held one!) a sand shark, sand dollars, two horseshoe crabs (which were huge!) and then tons and tons of little crabs. The crabs decided that they liked me. They seemed to be all around. It was so gross! One was crawling on my toe, and I was NOT very happy!
After we left the beach we went to historic Charleston. It was a blast! We got to stay in William Aiken's carriage house, which is in the historic district of Charleston. William Aiken was the man who brought the railroad to Charleston back in the 1800s. We got a tour of his house. The people who own all of this, also own a restaurant- and my uncle knows the executive chef! So that's how this all happened. The restaurant's name is Fish. And if you know me, you know I am not to keen on sea food, and that I am a picky eater. Listen to all that I tried:
*crystallized hibiscus flower*crab*escargot (snail)*duck and poached egg*calamari
and then another night when we were at the beach I tried:
*scallops*cactus leaf
OH and then! After Charleston my mom was spontaneous! (Which we are very proud of!) We went to Atlanta, to see our was a tons of fun! There I tried mango. So this vacation I tried a ton of new things.
While we were in Atlanta, we went to Browns Bridge Community Church. It is one of North Pointe's churches. I really liked it there!
After church, we went to our friend's house, and ate lunch, went swimming, went to this really, really amazing park! It had slides that were 3 stories high! And we spent the rest of the day with them. It was really sad to leave. { i miss you already!!} But it was unexpected and lovely to see them!
And then we stopped at my aunt's house on the way home, and then we were on our way. We took two day to get home, and yesterday afternoon-ish we arrived home...and we weren't even home an hour and I went to a baseball game! He won, so that was exciting! My friend's brother's team is now in the championship game!
So as you can see I have been pretty busy! While on vacation though, I read through some of the Proverbs. I really like Proverbs 18:10 which says, "The name of the Lord is a strong tower, the righteous man runs into it, and is safe." I heard that verse a few years ago when I was helping my friend with children's church- and I like it. I always have God, and he is my tower and the only strength that I need...
