Our summer in pictures

I know I have done a terrible job of keeping our blog up to date.  Being away from the work in Brazil makes it harder for me to write about what's going on there, so if you want to know more about the ministry there, check out Christen's blog at www.taylors4brazil.blogspot.com.  

We've had a fun summer, but I won't go into all the details.  Here are some pictures to summarize the past couple of months.

David was the missionary speaker for teen boys' week at Mountain View Bible Camp in VA.
Hiking up a mountain with the boys.

The kids enjoyed meeting new friends during camp week.
Watching movies

Getting ready for fireworks to celebrate July 4th

Pictures don't do them justice

David's sister Rachel came to spend a few days with us.

We got to go to the Andy Griffith museum in Mt. Airy.

The kids and I have gone to the nearby public library for story time and different events, like firetruck day.

Celebrating our anniversary Kanpai-style.  So good ...
8 years!

Hanging out at the pool

Celebrating birth (the daughter of a childhood friend of mine)

and birthdays. 

Thanks, Aunt Leah, for the cupcakes with blue icing ... :)
Gabriel is into superheroes these days.

Doing some fishing

Hanging out with family
So that's it in a nutshell.  Most weekends we have been presentng the work in Brazil in one of our supporting churches.  Pray for us as we head out to Illinois and Iowa.  Enjoy your last few weeks of summer!
