If you go to Him to be guided, He will guide you; but He will not comfort your distrust or half-trust of Him by showing you the chart of all His purposes concerning you. He will show you only into a way where, if you go cheerfully and trustfully forward, He will show you on still farther. - Horace Bushnell
"When you are doubtful as to your course, submit your judgement absolutely to the Spirit of God, and ask Him to shut against you every door but the right one... Meanwhile keep on as you are, and consider the absense of indication to be the indication of God's will that you are on His track... As you go down the long corridor, you will find that He has preceded you, and locked many doors which you would fain have entered; but be sure that beyond these there is one which He has left unlocked. Open it and enter, and you will find yourself face to face with a bend of the river of opportunity, broader and deeper than anything you had dared to imagine in your sunniest dreams. Launch forth upon it; it conducts to the open sea.
God guides us, often by circumstances. At one moment the way may seem utterly blocked; and then shortly afterward some trivial incident occurs, which might not seem much to others, but which to the keen eye of faith speaks volumes. Sometimes these things are repeated in various ways, in answer to prayer. They are not haphazard results of chance, but the opening up of circumstances in the direction in which we would walk. And they begin to multiply as we advance toward our goal, just as the lights do as we near a populous town, when darting through the land by night express. - F.B. Meyer

A guy about our age sitting two rows in front of us was standing up trying to get the crowd to cheer and then looks at us: "Hey did you guys ride the light rail?"
Me: blank stare
Guy: "I thought so. I remember seeing you guys."
Me: mildly confused stare because I don't remember him and am unsure why he's talking to us regardless
Lyndee: "Yeah that was us!"
Guy: thinks and then says "You guys riding it back home?"
Me: mildly amused stare
Guy: "Alright then! See you on the way back!"
Lyndee: "Ok ok! Yeah!"
Guy sits down.
Lady behind us: "I know why you girls ride the lightrail!"
Lyndee: "YEAH! WHAT!"
Ten year old boy in front of us: "OK!"
Lyndee's coworker: "So and so D-Back player has been really hot this season"
Lyndee: "Yeah, he's hot!"
Lyndee's coworker: "By hot, I mean playing hot"
Lyndee browsing through the free D-Backs magazine: "Who's that player? He's hot!"
Lyndee: big smile when an attractive guy in the crowd is shown up on the megatron
Lyndee's coworker: "I saw that smile!"
Lyndee: "The scantron, I mean the megatron..."
The crowd around us was crazy and there was a big group of Phillies fan. One middle-aged lady (by middle-aged I mean time is taking its toll on her body) took the time to put eyeliner on but unfortunately didn't take that same time to put a bra on. Who does that?
Thanks Lyndee for the good time! I love you and how interesting you make life!

At the parade
Yankee doodle dandies!
Barbecuing at the park!
At the fairgrounds before the fireworks. Tonka told us we were 4th of July princesses with our cute lil crowns that Kali C got us.
They forced us to take a detour after the fireworks were over. It was ridiculous and we were stuck on this dirt road FOREVER. Ah well, we had good company and good tunes.
On Sunday of the 4th of July weekend, we headed up to Twilight campground for a church service and potluck on the mountain.
All in all, it was an awesome weekend!
Up next, Kellie and I went to a COPELAND concert. It was completely incredibly amazing!!! Unfortunately, it was in the Clubhouse...with no AC. In Tempe, Arizona. In July. Seriously ridiculous. So I was melting and insanely uncomfortable and by the end I just wanted to die, but thankfully Aaron Marsh's angelic voice kept me alive.
I made appointments with wedding venues and Jason surprised me by coming last minute to look with me. He's the best! I'm so glad he came - it was so much better with him!
And finally, the Harry Potter premier! A group of us met at Cinemark around 9:30 and it was wonderfully uncrowded. I didn't get pictures of our whole group but we had a blast! Lyndee, Sarah, Kellie, Julie and I made shirts with a peace symbol, a heart, and a lightning bolt. Kellie wins most awesome entrance, hands down. She submitted an assignment at midnight and then drove over to the theater. She walked in right as the previews started. Niiice. Below Sarah and I are spelling out our love for HP.
I guess I was the only one who was excited.
And what Harry Potter Premier isn't complete without a napping Dumbledore fan
I LOVE summer!!

A stamp from 1948. It doesn't get any better than this.

My favorite part of this episode was this guy:
Not the choreographer in front, but the guy behind him. Seriously, he is wearing a fur hat! How awesome can you get?! We cracked up everytime they showed him, and since they kept showing the choreographer, he definately got his fifteen minutes of fame.

Pudding lipsFamily picture Black licorice! Trick-or-treating in April (I think?) All my girls, stand in a circle and clap your hands, this is for you! Howard Hoes!
Some of my favorite Lyndee quotes:
"It's my 21st birthday today!..... so I'm going to order a virgin, non-alcoholic strawberry daiquiri."
"I put lipstick on!"
"They always get engaged under the placebo!"
Her multitude of inappropriate words such as weiner, lesbian, fuuudge, and scoop!
Seriously, there's so many more I'm forgetting...
HAPPY BIRTHDAY LYNDEE!!!! I love you!
