At Eden Nature Park they have a small 'village' set up with the head clan leader's hut and a shaman's hut.

A Father's Love

As I watched our kids play with their Dad this recent vacation time at Eden I was thanking God for my husband and how he is willing to spend time with his kids.
I was also thanking God for the healing that has been occurring in our family, the strengthening of our family bond, and the way He is leading us.

Watching him interact with Mikayla, Kirsten, Ben and James I could see him meeting each of them where they are at....just like our Heavenly Father meets each of us where we are at!

1 John 3:1See what kind of love the Father has given to us,
that we should be called children of God; and so we are.

Children of the Heav'nly Father
Children of the heav'nly Father
Safely in His bosom gather;
Nestling bird nor star in Heaven
Such a refuge e'er was given.

God His own doth tend and nourish;
In His holy courts they flourish;
From all evil things He spares them;
In His mighty arms He bears them.

Purple Dinasour

James discovered a purple dinosaur (but it wasn't Barney!)
and really enjoyed riding him while we were at Eden Nature Park.


One of the things we did at Eden was fish at the fishing pond.

Ben, James, Kirsten had a great time catching tilapia.

The workers cleaned them for us and we brought them home and ate them! YUM!!!!!
