SummerTourNorth||Week#3

We spent all of week #3 touring throughout Alberta, Canada. We had six concerts and two off days during the week, which made for lots of activity!
As always, there are many different jobs to do around the bus. It is just like having a home to take care of, except for completely different, of course. But it is still somewhat similar.
Above, Carson hooks up the hose to fill the water bay at a church, after a concert.

One night two sweet ladies brought our family a whole basket full of homemade donuts, dinner rolls, and other baked things. Such a treat for us!
Time to sing!
Stories in the bunk, while driving down the road one day.
We spent our off days at Jasper Park. We hiked, grilled out, walked, talked, and celebrated Mitchell's 23rd birthday. A few crazy souls even went swimming in the very cold lake. =)
The fire-starting crew.
He doesn't workout everyday for nothing. =)
Suppertime selfie!

Beautiful wildlife.
Ready to hike!

Taylor + Mom at the top!
Mom + Elizabeth have started making water kefir on this tour. 
Some of us have gotten slightly addicted. At least it is a good addiction-super healthy!
Singing outdoors at a church picnic on Canada Day!
I am so proud of these little people and their diligence with their studies on the road.
The summer Bible Bee just started recently and they are so focused and motivated! 
Here, they are studying behind our product table while the rest of us were singing.
Meeting new friends and reconnecting with old ones is always a special treat when our busy schedule allows. We enjoyed a day in the country catching up on laundry, exercise, and other activities. The younger ones also got to make some music together with their friends!
Another sweet gift from sweet strangers. These were the most delicious berries and were gone in no time! Due to our berries back home producing late this year, we had to leave on tour before they were done producing, so we missed quite a bit of our berry crop. That made these berries extra special to us!

Once again we cannot say thank-you enough to all of the kind people of God who served our family in so many different ways this week! May the Lord bless y'all!

"Bless the Lord, O my soul, and all that is within me, bless His holy name." 
Psalm 103:1
