Photos from Memorial Day weekend.

Last weekend was incredible!! We had our very own mini vacation in Huntington Beach. Despite a terrifying experience Saturday night (our little brother Will Gleason had a grand mal seizure after his baseball game), everything else was like a dream. We spent time with friends we have been missing, enjoyed the sunshine, the beach, the pool, the hot tub, played a Norwegian game (sort of like "horse shoe") with the Fellers, spent lots of time with the Sumners, and realized once again how grateful we are for the Gleasons- our Huntington Beach family. Shaun and I had special time on Monday to celebrate our 3rd anniversary too. We shopped a bit, walked a lot, ate yummy food, and just enjoyed another day of being married.

Oh and I discovered a new favorite Bible verse. I love it because the idea is that no matter what "good things" we have or experience, the only thing really worth being stoked about is knowing God- because compared to Him, all of those "good things" are nothing.

"thus says the Lord, 'let not the wise man glory in his wisdom, let not the mighty man glory in his might, nor let the rich man glory in his riches, but let him who glories glory in this- that he understands and knows Me, that I am the Lord, exercising loving kindness, judgement, and righteousness in the earth. For in these I delight'"
Jer. 9:23-24
