|Ambers "first" trip to the Pacific Ocean :)|
Look at these faces and tell me that's not a card up the sleeve !
Find Vampires (Yup, we went there. Don't even care if you judge us.) Find Big Foot(IDK my big foot counts, you'll see a pic later) Get Coffee @ the 1st Starbucks EVER Ride a Ferry Boat in Seattle See the Space Needle Put our toes in the Pacific Ocean(some of us for the "1st" time)
- Play A Board Game....cause there was 4 of us (FUHouse joke & how did this not get done?!)
Picnic(sarah got bird bombed :( ) Road Trip(a lot of jumping pictures came from this....who knew we loved jumping?!) Take Lots of Pictures(see #9) Laugh so much we get a 6 pack(well I didn't get a 6 pack, but I sure was sore) Eat , Drink & be Merry!!!(the long and short of it)
This trip provided me with a much , MUCH needed change of scenery, pace , and company . Not that I didn't miss Jack Davis and others like crazy . JD was with my g'parents being feed ROAST AND CARROTTS . I am pretty sure he was more disappointed when I returned that when I departed . All this to say , Praise God for Best Friends !! What would we do with out them ?! I hope to never find out . Also, Praise God for caring not only about my future needs, but my current needs . He doesn't just provide for me in the most amazing ways physically, but also deep down in my soul . Those needs that not every one can see or even cares to consider . I have decided many things in my time away , in the company of good friends and with the sight of things that had before been unseen now in my rearview . In no particular order ..............
- Giving is easy. It's the accepting that is hard .
- Adventures are GOOD, NEEDED & IMPORTANT !!!
- Good friends are worth more than..........ANYTHING .
- Challenging yourself physically as well as everything else is VITAL .
- God provides , is never late , and has a bag of tricks we've yet to dip our toes into .
- The ability to be creative keeps me breathing .
- I gotta keep looking forward . I have NO CLUE what God has for me next .
- I may one day need a I.V. tap of Coffee in order to keep going .
- My friends aren't
friends,they're family !
- It's good to go away, it's good to come home .
We hope that our next FUHouse reunion will include Jenny (who just had twin girls) and Jessica (whose son had just broken his elbow & had to have surgery). #lifehappens

On the day I left, by the time I had gotten home I'd been in a family van, on a boat , a airport tram , and airplane . #mrjetlaglovesmemost #redeye - my flight & appearance
Grateful and Thankful do not seem like big enough words for how I feel about this adventure . I pray God provides many more in my near future .
