Day 12 was my day of rest. It was a Sunday, we were at my parents’ cabin, and it was a great day. We went to the morning service at First Baptist Church of San Lorenzo Valley, and then enjoyed a pot luck before we got to share with the church about Malawi. It is such a great church, and our souls were so refreshed by the message and the time with these great people!
Days 13 and 14 were a wonderful time to relax and hang out with my parents. It was my birthday too, so we got a little bit spoiled…
My parents’ awesome cabin in the redwoods! It’s on the grounds of the Mount Hermon Conference Center.
Dad and Mom took us to Shadowbrook for my birthday dinner. Thanks Dad and Mom – it was soooo fun!
I got a hot fudge sundae for my birthday.
The restaurant has a hillavator – somewhere between a gondola and an escalator.
Hanging out with Mom and Dad meant we got to do some “normal” things, like grocery shopping.
And a little bit of just sitting next to a warm fire.
As great as the cabin is, the surrounding area is just amazing!
Redwoods and creeks – hiking and exploring.
In the Jr High camp area, we found a great picture spot. Now, it’s kind of hard to take a self photo in one of these things… =)
It was a great time of resting and catching up with my parents. Thanks for the hospitality, fun, and rest, Mom and Dad!
