We had such a great day today. Wow, I can't remember the last time I said that on a Sunday.
We went to River Valley Church this morning and it was really great. Actually it started kind of funny.
We were going to meet the Lebda's at RVC and so, last night I googled the church name, looked up the service times and so we all met at 9:30 this morning. When we got there, the service had already started @ 9. I thought, "man, that sucks, their website is wrong", so we went to Starbucks and chilled with the Lebda's for an hour. Come to find out, I was looking at the RVC church in IOWA. Whoops! Luke, a blogger that I met in person for the 1st time today, gave me a bad time about it. I also met Tim Balint in person as well, who were both cool guys.
Well, the service was great. I even talked to Gordon Hall, the pastor, after the service about our love for the ESV and Twitter. We saw some old friends, met some people that traveled in close circles to us, and everyone was really friendly, warm and completely normal. Normalcy is a great quality to have, especially when you get entrenched in the Christian culture!
We went back to RVC tonight for their "family night" where we played games, did worship with the kids (go figure) and ate free pizza. It was such a nice atmosphere to have all the kids running around, doing fun things with the kids and also letting them be a part of the community. I couldn't say more about it, it was awesome.
kiara spent the night at my parent's house last night, so after eating dinner at El Matador (which was really good) with everyone, we came home with just one of our girls. We got a movie and some Rocky Road, put her to bed and watched 3:10 to Yuma. Although, it took us probably 15 minutes than the actual movie time because the DVD skipped so much. I HATE THAT!!!!
Kiara is spending all day with my mom and dad, so we just got done with the gym and are now heading off to Wild Water Adventures, which in my mind is still called Clovis Lakes. Hope it's not too busy.
I'm sitting in a hotel room with Los, Rob, Brady and JRocka at the comfort suites in lake forest. They have this enormous tv hooked up to a computer. it's really weird, but I finally get some time to blog.
I've only seen Los like 2 times since he moved to the ATL, so after lunch in Fresno, I drove 4.5 hours down to LA. He's speaking at this Purpose Driven conference thing, so I'm crashing it with him.
Okay, I'm a huge Coldplay fan. Best concert I've ever been too. They are coming back through Cali in July, so if you want to see them, tickets go on sale next week sometime depending on the venue you choose. I can't wait until "Viva la Vida" comes out (on my birthday!).
I just finished reading Prince Caspian and we saw the movie opening weekend. I really enjoyed both, but man the movie took some serious liberties. the whole end is completely different. I don't know if they felt that they needed to spice it up or what.
The only thing I really had a hard time with in the movie was the Old-Narnians. I mean, I know CS Lewis wrote about Centaurs and Minotaurs, but they just look kind of cheesy on the big screen. It's like the fantastical creatures are better in my own imagination than they are in a movie.
everyone else and there mom have already talked about the movie, so i won't go on any further.
i was searching the internet the other day trying to find out about the "eleanor" car from the movie, "Gone in 60 seconds". Supposedly this company called Unique Performance along with designer Chip Foose made the car. After the movie, they became super popular, so any Joe could go buy one. I saw a special on the whole thing one night on Discovery Channel. So, I thought, "that would be sweet! I wonder how much they are?".
My research ended when I found this article telling me about the closure and bankruptcy of Unique Performance. Chip Foose and Carroll Shelby have both cut ties with the company and no more Eleanor's are being made.
