Adventureland Rally 2007

Saturday we had the opportunity to attend the annual Adventureland Rally that the state IARBC puts on. We had 22 from our church attending. We brought our big kids along, too. Naomi and Hudson got to spend the day with Grandma Shirley and Papa Ken. Over 1100 teens were in attendance. The word of God was preached and many decisions for Christ were made.

This was the first year in as many as we have been taking youth groups to Adventureland that it was not cold and rainy. The weather was beautiful, with sunny skies and a light breeze. Getting wet on the water rides actually felt good this year! It also made for longer lines, as more people were at the park.

This was Katie's first visit to Adventureland. She enjoyed all of the rides, and proved herself fearless. She was quite disappointed that she didn't get to ride all of the "big kid rides" because she was too short. Thankfully we have plenty of big boys who are willing to go on the spinning rides with her. Shannon and I have found that we just aren't up to it anymore. Colton went on all of the rides he possibly could, too.

"The fear of man brings a snare, but whoever trusts in the Lord shall be safe." Proverbs 29:25
