Chantel and her kids came in town for the 4th of July weekend. They didn't get there till late Friday so we actually took the older 2 boys and served at a ministry in downtown Fort Worth. On our summer bucket list was "try a new restaurant". So Caleb wanted pizza so Thirteen Pies is the first thing we saw. They picked it and in we went. As soon as we opened the door I thought we should've turned around.....white table cloths and waiters. That isn't a norm for our eating out experience. But they were seating us before I knew it so we were staying :). It was expensive pizza and they probably would've much rather had Dominos but it was fun and a great experience. After dinner we headed to Beautiful Feet and learned about what we'd be doing that evening. We loaded up the vans and headed to the "camps" that people live in within Fort Worth. It was more than humbling to see how these people lived. They basically had nothing but they were kind and caring even as we talked with them. We passed out hotdogs and tried to encourage them and tell them about Christ. It was a very neat experience for our boys and we hope and to expose them to many more things like this in the future.
On Saturday we went swimming with the Bellamy's at my parents house. The kids had a great time together.
This is our 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 picture :).
