Weekend Adventures: Gilroy Gardens, Birthday Fun, and a Banquet

We are all back to good health, praise the Lord!  To celebrate summer (it's been close to 90 here), Keanan's upcoming birthday, and the kids starting 3rd/4th grade - we went to Gilroy Gardens on Friday with the Salteralli's!  Lots of fun riding roller coasters and eating ice cream :)
Saturday afternoon was spent celebrating our friend birthday!  Water balloon fights, Jeep rides (Zac took the top and doors off), pizza, a design challenge, and pie filled the night.  I think one of my favorite parts was singing "happy birthday" in English, Spanish, and Mandarin to represent all of the families there.
On Sunday we had a great morning at church and then Zac and I got to attend the Help One Child banquet in Palo Alto.  Our church partners with Help One Child (foster care support ministry) through the Safe Families program - helping families in crisis before they get to the point where the kids are placed in foster care.  Such an amazing ministry!  I even got to speak a little bit at the banquet about our church's experience.  Bonus: it was a date night!  The kids had a great time hanging out with Ms. Lauren.

We are off camping next weekend!
