A Blessed Vacation

In early June, my family and two sweet friends visited the beautiful state of Georgia. We had a very blessed time together, hiking, swimming, visiting the zoo, and so much more!
Here is a little glimpse of our week in the mountains…

Visiting the Atlanta Zoo was a lot of fun! For those of you who don’t know, they have panda bears there {which happen to be my favorite animal}. Seeing pandas for the first time was such a wonderful experience!

Our vacation to Georgia was such a joy, and I am so thankful to God that He enabled us to go and visit!

He stood and measured the earth;
He looked and startled the nations.
And the everlasting mountains were scattered,
The perpetual hills bowed.
His ways are everlasting.”
