As a special treat for the girls, my Mom took my sisters and I to a beautiful tea room in Carefree, AZ. It was such a special time of relaxing, listening to beautiful music, dressing up, great food and of course delicious tea! The lady who runs the place is an immigrant from England, so she has a lovely accent! I loved listening to her talk! And of course there were many pictures of the Royal family members! (Those who know me best know how much I would love to go to England!)
When we walked across the street there was a little pathway to walk on so we went strolling and ended up doing a photo shoot! That's what happens we you have a camera along!
We drove around the corner and found the famous huge sun dial. It rises about 62 feet in the air! Here's some pictures of it:
That's all for now! What was one of your favorite Mom and daughter times?
Wow! God is so gracious and merciful! How awesome He is! The Local Bible Bee Contest Day turned out wonderful! It was an awesome day of praising the Lord, lots of fun fellowship and a forever happy memory! This was the best year yet! I got fourth place in the Senior division (for the third time!) And I did sooooo much better on the test than I did last year! I wouldn't have done it without out the following people: Mom (she was very helpful in giving suggestions for study, time off from school to study and all around awesome!Thanks a thousand times, Mom! <3) Sarah E. and Meagan F. (for being my great accountability partners! Thank you for praying for me and cheering me on!) and
Anthony L. (for being such a great encouragement and for keeping me going!)
Here are the pictures from the day! Most of the photos credit goes to Mr. B. as I couldn't be everywhere at once! Thank you so much! (But someone please remind me not to give my camera to a person who likes to tease and drive a person crazy by taking a lot of pictures of my brother and I! I would be most grateful!) :P
Now I'll move one to the celebration ceremony!
After cleaning up at the church we invited everyone over to our place for snacks, fellowship and games. It was a perfect way to end the day!
All the kids also played a few games of capture the flag before everyone had to go home! Overall it was the most happiest days ever!
On Wednesday we find out who is going to Nationals. I'm not sure if I'll make it to the top 120 from my division, but you never know! :)
