Where's Waldo and Small Town Living :)

Good Afternoon, Lovelies!

What a beautiful day in the city of Edmonds, WA! Glory to God! Magnificent beauty all around. I've traveled and lived a  lot of places and I'm just really not sure it gets any more beautiful on earth this side of heaven! Glorious.

The kids and I have been enjoying summer days. Me, mostly organizing and getting settled in.. another post on that coming soon.. in the meantime, lots of outdoor time playing baseball, running through the sprinkler/spraying with the hose, picnics on our front porch, time at the beach, enjoying community and time with our new church here.

Life is so good! Treasuring these friendships, and in some ways reflecting on where we have been the past twelve years and where we are headed in the future. Also PLANTING seems to be on my heart! 

Our cute small-town living city had a Where's Waldo hunt, 48 shops in the community had a little sign in their window for Waldo and then today we got to go to a party for getting a stamp from at least 24 of the 48 participating shops. To get a stamp the kids had to go on a scavenger hunt to find Waldo in each store. My kids loved this! It was a great way to get the adults into shops they might not have otherwise been in before, and just a great way to build community in my opinion. Today we got to go have some cake, meet Mrs. Waldo ( I never found Mr. Waldo?) :) , beanbag toss, count the candies in the jar and participate in a raffle. My ticket won, so I let our oldest pick something. He chose a Seahawks poster and a $5 coffee card so I am a happy girl!
