Happy 5th Birthday, Rebecca!

Rebecca's 5th birthday was back on the 9th, and we celebrated on the 8th with an evening picnic at the park, per her request.
Its hard to believe that our baby is already five years old! =)

We are currently booking our 2013 winter/spring tour and still have a few dates open in Texas, Mississippi, Florida, Virginia, North Carolina, and South Carolina.

A summer 2013 trip is being planned in the following areas: the pacific northwest (of United States), Canada (Ontario, Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta, and British Columbia), and possibly Alaska.

11th Annual Turning Hearts Celebration

 We had another amazing Labor Day celebration, complete with food, fun, speaking, music, football, volleyball, & lots of interacting with old & new friends. 
 A small portion of the football crew.
(disclaimer: the john deere tractor is NOT a Bontrager tractor =))
 The smiling faces that greeted people at the food line.
 The Bates Family was once again a huge blessing and enjoyed by all.


Support Chick-Fil-A!

Last week we took a few hours off one crazy busy day and went to the Coralville Chick-Fil-A for lunch.
Chick-Fil-A recently came out with the statement that "marriage is only between man & woman".
The media of course hated this and many people said that the company should be "shut down" for their "intolerant" stand.
Their plan to destroy Chick-Fil-A has backfired and instead, 
sales at Chick-Fil-A have gone up 30%!!
It just goes to show that there are still people in this country that believe that God's ways are best and are willing to support a cause like Chick-Fil-A that is still standing on biblical principles.
Our family whole-heartedly endorses Chick-Fil-A and we want to encourage all of our blog readers to find a Chick-Fil-A near you and go in on Wednesdays (family day) and show your support! Tell them that you are THANKFUL that they are willing to support marriage as God instituted it from the very beginning!

Labor Day Work Days

Several families (friends of ours) visited us the week prior to Labor Day to help us in getting the farm & house ready for the Turning Hearts Celebration.
lots of work deserves a little chocolate treat. =)
 Enjoying a few games after a hard days' work!
