i heart zephyr

we are currently residing at a sweet little spot called zephyr baptist encampment.  it's a christian camp about an hour outside of corpus christi, texas.  my hubs and i both have a history here.  i was a summer staffer/life guard from '98-'00 and he was a staffer from '99 on and off through the present (he's moved up the ranks a bit since then).   

we met as summer staffer's...awww.  <3

anyway, this is an amazing place where God is still doing His work.  june-august is when youth and pre-teens come out, and the rest of the year, retreat groups (such as non-profits, schools, churches, etc.)  come out to enjoy all zephyr has to offer.

zephyr can sleep up to 680 guests!  the camp has a pool, pond, ropes course, waterfront off of lake corpus christi, paintball course, indoor & outdoor gyms...you get the idea.  plenty to keep you busy!  :)

here are some of the sights:

kayaks @ the water front

there we are!

if you'd like more information about camp zephyr, please visit the website or the facebook fan page.  and if you or someone you know might be interested in serving as a staffer for summer '11, please visit here to download an application.  oh, and the sooner the better...summer will be here before you know it!  *wink, wink*

honey pied loves shutterfly

it's officially the christmas season and i hope you all had a lovely thanksgiving!  time to think about shopping for gifts (oh no...sarcasm) and getting those important holiday cards.  snail mail at it's finest, instead of keeping in touch via facebook. (guilty of that!)

this year honey pied is going with shutterfly for those 2010 memories.  i've been going through some of our pictures for the holiday cards and calendars for the grandparents.  shutterfly has such a variety of cards, from folded greeting cards to flat photo cards.  click here to check 'em out!

in the past, we have given the grandparents some sweet calendars.  (not as sweet as they'll be this year though!)  i absolutely love all of the design choices they have available.  not only can you get the traditional wall calendars, but you can get these super cute desk calenders too!

i'm even thinking about giving the hubs a photo book filled with all of the fabulous pictures from his guatemalan mission trips!  click here to view their photo books.

this is a sneak peak at one of the cute card options for the grantham family this year:

merry indeed.

happy shopping,

benvenido a casa!

he is home!

from a week long trip to guatemala.  he has brought back a lot of yummy coffee and one of a kind gifts.  like little beaded ponies, scarves, necklaces, a creepy monkey mask...and a cute little wooden train for bub.

tyler, bj and a handful of other men in camp ministry went to build homes for widows.  it's such an awesome opportunity to serve and to make those all important relationships with the local people.  God is doing great things in that mission field.  here are some of the awesome photos from the trip...enjoy!

hasta la proxima vez,
