This is what we do for the joy of the King,
For His peaceable Kingdom,
For a world in despair.
And this is why we bring any hope we can give,
Any bread from the table,
Any touch of His hand.
This is what we do.
This is where we go.
This is why we sing.
This is how we live.
This is who we are.

Chillin' After Church On A Beautiful Spring Day gotta love the PDT!  When Daylight Savings Time rolls around, there's always the dread of losing that hour's sleep, but it's worth every red eyeball to have that extra daylight each day--especially out here in California where days just seem a little shorter to me.  (When I lived in Florida as a kid, the days were plenty long just on Standard time...I think it was the fact that FL was closer to the western edge of the Eastern Time Zone.)

Anyway, today was a great day at church.  The weather was perfect--especially considering what's happening back east with the snow and ice.  Yikes!

Haley and Emily bonding.  Emily
sat in her play station while we ate lunch.  
She was as happy as a little pig in the sunshine.

The whole clan gathered here after church.  (Everyone but Kristi who had a luncheon with the Louisiana Global Outreach team.)  Lyn made a great tri-tip and Lexi once again exhibited her amazing appetite for everything:  bread, meat, grapes, tomatoes, corn, broccoli, and a little potato.  Haley ate well too--especially since A-1 Sauce was available for the beef!

After lunch we all gathered at the patio for Bubble Time. 
 Emily (who turns 4-months old this week) even got 
into it, they tell me, but since I didn't observe it first 
hand, I'm taking everyone's word for it.  

Lexi's just beginning to get the hang of bubble blowing.
As you can see from the video below, she has a little way to go 
up the learning curve yet!  SO FUNNY!

Thank you for blogging the bubble blowing video, a visit with everyone on the patio including Mandy in the background! Almost like being there...and wouldn't that be nice says she, from snowy Ohio...
Love and Hugs!

Judi, I'm so glad you are enjoying the pictures and the blogs. Wish you could have been here, too. I thought of you immediately when I heard about all that snow this morning. We love you, too! Maybe it's time for a California trip!!
