Spring Tour Recap

What an exciting Spring Tour we had, from the end of December til mid-April! Over 100 days on the road, and literally traveling from coast to coast! We had some amazing meetings, met some special people, enjoyed time with old friends along the way and made lots of wonderful memories! Praise God for the safety He gave us and for blessing each of our ministry endeavors!

First stop: Oklahoma City!

Our first meeting was January 1st at Bethhaven Baptist Church!

We had a great visit with our dear friends, the Leeders, in Albuquerque, NM!

David started learning how to read!

First Sunday in CA: Freedom's Way Baptist Church in Santa Clarita!

Caleb preached and we both taught split sessions for Lancaster Baptist School's revival.

Ready for church in Simi Valley, CA!

Caleb and I got to tour the Reagan Library! 

Alyssa loves her big brother!

David loves to sing and quote Scripture in churches! 
This was at Berean Bible Baptist Church in San Diego, CA.

February 14 - Jonathan is 2 1/2!!!

This boy loves puzzles! He is extremely detail oriented and has amazing dedication and concentration!


David's passion is legos!!! He can build some amazing creative things!

Pretty princess!

Finally, it was time to leave CA and start heading back east. We stopped for a week in Utah and got to enjoy time with my sister and her family. We went sledding (the boys' first time!) in all the beautiful snow there!

Aquarium with Aunt Laura and our cousins!

The 3 Garraways and the 3 Fulks' :)

From there it was on to Kansas City, MO! We got to spend a day visiting my other sister and her pretty little ladies!

Finally, after 12 days (and a couple stops and meetings in between), we made it to Washington D.C.! My parents, who live in FL, happened to be nearby that week and came to visit us for a couple days!

We greatly enjoyed Capitol Connection again this year, helping with music and Caleb filming throughout the entire conference. We always enjoy getting to see friends from all over the US while there - including Patch the Pirate!! We are grateful for the friendship we have with the Hamiltons and Morgans!

March 20 - David is 4 1/2!

This big boy is growing up so fast! 
He has picked up reading and really enjoys it! 
He also enjoys his piano lessons and can't wait to play in church one day!

Enjoying the scenery from the church lawn in Virginia!

This girl is always pretty happy, but she's the happiest when she's eating!!

We spent a week in Greenville, SC, filming 3 new music videos with Patch the Pirate and the Hamilton and Morgan families!

Thankful for the inspiration these ladies are to me!
