Busy Sunday

14 Apr

We had a really fun, busy day today, so standby for tons of Ruby pictures. First we went to church, where we heard an exceptional sermon on grace by a visiting pastor. Ruby remembered the playground from the previous two weeks and was desperate to play on it after the service:

This afternoon we went to Newfarm Park, which has possibly the most awesome playground I have ever seen. There were tons of kids there, and Ruby decided that she wanted to play barefoot like the majority of the Aussies. We all really missed Ruby’s cousins Megan, Ricky, Jenna, and Ben–the day would have been even more fun with them!

Even PopPop, Auntie Elise, Uncle Adam, Auntie Rachel, and Uncle Matt got in on the fun:

This evening Matt’s parents hosted a wonderful barbecue with both sides of his family. It is so very nice to meet everyone and see how much Rachel is loved and has been taken in by everyone halfway around the world. Everyone has been most gracious and welcoming to us, and I hope we can return the favor sometime soon. Sadly this is the only picture I got tonight, but you can see how much Ruby has taken to Matt’s brother-in-law, James:

    These pictures are amazing. Please tell Ruby that her new church at home has a little playground too. It may not be in Australia, but Selah is there with a lot of wood chips. That has to count for something. Missing you lots!
