Last weekend we got to see our good friends, Cindy and April who drove down and took a few days to check out So Cal. It was so good to see them and visit with them. On Monday we joined their sightseeing agenda and spent the day at the happiest place on earth also known as Disneyland. I love Disneyland... I really do. Aaron and I were even talking about getting a year pass or something because we always have a great time when we go. So we had a fun day with the girls and enjoyed all the rides and shows.

Tomorrow night Aaron will be leaving to Ecuador for nine days. He is going down with his dad and two pastors and a friend of his. Aaron and his friend will actually be shooting a documentary of the trip (maybe I'll figure out how to put it on youtube or something...) I've been thinking what to do while he is gone and I'll probably stay with his mom for a few days and then on Thursday I'm gonna take the four hour drive north to Pismo Beach and visit Cindy... for the third time in four weeks!! It's kinda odd to go from not seeing each other for almost a year and living on different continents to visits practically every weekend and sharing the same state but I can't complain! I've been meaning to go up and visit her so it will be nice to have a few days with her and even celebrate her birthday too, I am really looking forward to it! I have been to Pismo Beach twice and I love that area so I am excited to see more of it.

For those of you who have been keeping up with the news you've probably heard about the wildfires that have been raging through Southern California these last seven days. Four of the fires were in our county and so for most of the week it has been so smokey and there is ash everywhere. All the schools have been closed because of the air conditions. Aaron's parent's neighborhood was even under voluntary evacuation. A group from our church went to the shelters to visit and just listen to the people who have lost almost everything to the fire. They also invited them to the thrift store (that was given to our church this month) to pick out some free clothes. I have been volunteering at the thrift store lately and was working the day that we had the fire victims come in. It was so sad to hear these people's stories. Some people had left for work one morning and then found out that they weren't able to return to their house because the area had been evacuated so they had nothing but the clothes they wore that day. I can't even imagine what that would feel like! Fortunately at this time most of the fires have been 100% contained and there are seven that are partially contained. Please continue to pray that they get the remaining fires under control and for the firefighters and for all the families that this has affected.
