{Road Trip} Kandiyohi

This trip could also be titled Tour of Kandiyohi Parks…

It was early on that fateful Friday afternoon in July. April and I loaded up her car and set out on an adventure. Our only plan: to have fun. Our destination: Kandiyohi, MN, home of the Miron clan.selah_candace_rose_Kandiyohi_parks We arrived at Miron’s doorstep two hours later to spend July 4th weekend with Heather, Cole, and Ada. Mark was in the Cities working.

The trip was a success.

{Ada} Finally Hot

Cole and Ada have the best park. Right in their backyard! These were taken before it was finished, but the toys are so fun! Ada loved swinging and Cole liked driving his car around the school house and filling it up with gas. Both Cole and Ada tried digging in the dirt, but the shovel was a *little* big.2ada 2cole 2coleada

The Gift of a Child

God has blessed the union
Of a husband and a wife
With a beautiful little baby
Bringing joy into their lives

For children are blessings
Sent from God above
A precious gift heaven sent
An expression of God’s love

On the foundation of this love,
May this child truly grow
Discovering the truths of God
And to one day come to know

That Jesus Christ is Lord of all
And He has an awesome plan,
A destiny only they can fulfill
As they take Him by the hand

And walk with Him every day
With God’s vision for their lives
And godly passion to fulfill
The commission of Jesus Christ
