Honeymoon Adventure- Last Week
We were only in Rainer for a day and a half so we did a few hikes. It is beautiful there and although it felt like 90 degrees outside it is still so snow covered!
HEY YOU GUYS! We went to see where the Goonie house is, as well as the beach that it was filmed on because we started out our Oregon journey in Astoria, Oregon and rolled down the coast. As beautiful as the coast is, it was actually really cold, windy, and dreary 80% of the time we were there. We slept on the beach one night, which was really fun and then watched the sunset the next night before leaving. We decided to leave earlier than planned and went to visit Katie and Issac in Utah.
We just stopped here on our way to Utah. The water is bluer than the sky!
Jordanelle State Park
Katie and Issac are going to a home church that was having baptisms the next morning in a state park there. Everyone was camping the night before so we joined them there. After fellowshipping with their church community and witnessing three people make a dedication we headed to Salt Lake.
Then we got to head to Denver to see our friends. Brent, Jimmy, and Dan just got an apartment there so we stayed with them for two nights. On our first night we watched… The Goonies! Micah had never seen it, but Sarah prepared him well for it with quotes and character descriptions. The guys just moved out here from Virginia, two weeks after we were married so it was nice to hang with them since we don’t know when the next time will be.
Chicago, Illinois- Legacy Conference
Micah found this conference months ago and had in the back of his mind if it worked out to go then great. It was relatively cheap for a weekend conference so we went. We can’t imagine a better way to end our honeymoon adventure. We were convicted, challenged, and encouraged in different ways. Mostly, though we are refreshed and renewed with the word of our Lord and the gospel He had written from before time began. We just want to know Him so much more.
It has been an amazing honeymoon adventure. We have grown so close, bonding in unity with each other and our God- truly an unforgettable experience. We know that the adventure just continues, in different ways of course =)
We’re in Harrisonburg tonight and cannot wait to worship our Creator with our friends at Aletheia Church in the morning!
Life doesn’t exactly slow down from here as job searching, friend’s weddings, and beach trips are in the near future.
Updates may not occur for a little while, as we have many a thank you notes to write 😉
