Natalie and Nate

On Friday July 15th my cousin Natalie and Nate became engaged. Nate drove 15 hours to surprise the love of his life with a ring and a question. Sounds like true love? It is.
Congratulations ! ! !

Josh Groban Staight To You Tour Ottawa!

This past Friday Mom and I went to see Josh Groban in concert in Ottawa. We had a wonderful time together. Thank you Daddy for buying us the tickets!

We had a great view. This picture taken with hardly any zoom

I have listened to most of his music and video clips and I thought it's the best I have ever heard him sing

He played the piano and drums throughout the concert - He has an amazing band.

The back stage..... still a great view!

Journey to The Father 2011

On July 15th - 17th, I went to Journey to The Father near Cornwall, Ontario. I was able to go with two friends from our church, Julia and Victoria. We had a great time! Part way to Cornwall we met up with our chaperon and then from her house we drove to meet the bus that would take us the rest of the way. Journey to The Father is a Catholic retreat. This is its 11th year! There has been up to 550 people there for this weekend retreat. It was a wonderful experience. I could really feel God at work in this place. I highly recommend looking into it.

The church that was here burned down many years ago and is now a historic site. They have since rebuilt a new church next to it. The old church is called "The Ruins"
