A picture of somewhere you have been
This is tough! We have always been a traveling family, and thankfully I married someone who also loves to travel. I've narrowed it down to two places--one is just not enough!
1. Honduras. In college, we were blessed to be able to travel to San Pedro Sula, Honduras twice for mission trips. We worked with a family down there who had begun a church and a daycare. We held services and VBS in the evenings, and worked on improving the buildings during the day. As usual, it was more of a blessing to us than the people we went "to bless". It is awesome to see God's hand at work in other countries, and I am so grateful to have gotten to be able to experience it.

|Loving on those kids :)|
|We were also able to visit the Mayan ruins in Copan on our second trip. They were amazing!|
2. Alaska. This was probably the most beautiful place I've ever seen. It topped all of the sites in Colorado and Wyoming; it blew away the clear water and sandy beaches of the Caribbean. We were able to go on a cruise in Alaska two summers ago. The weather was absolutely perfect the entire trip and we were able to see some amazing things. We can't wait to go back--hopefully next time, we'll do some more land touring.
|The glaciers were beautiful--and huge!|
|We were able to go whale watching in Juneau. It was incredible! We saw several pods of humpback whales.|
|If I remember correctly, this is a station for the Coast Guard in Ketchikan. Regardless, it's beautiful.|

|On a suspension bridge in the Yukon--technically Canada, but it was on our Alaskan vacation :)|
|Another glacier--this one kind of helps show how huge they are and how far back they go.|
|And another glacier--they were phenomenal. And the calving (when chunks would fall off) was unbelievable. Talk about loud! The whole thing just creaks and moans constantly because it's moving, ever so slowly.|
I hope life takes you to some incredible places. Happy Trails!
