Noel from http://travelphotodiscovery.com/about-4/ has invited me along to participate in his Travel Photo Monday blogs.
This has been an exciting summer of heavy ministry and growth in our church. We baptized fourteen in July in two separate services. August is already completely scheduled out with a missions trip to Haiti for Pastor Risto and his team, our annual VBS next week (where we minister to two hundred plus children) followed by a week of Special Touch Camp in Connecticut for my daughter and I (that is ministry to the disabled). All of that to say getting away this summer for a a full week’s vacation has been something of an impossibility. Still there have been days of travel and fun here in MA.
A few weeks ago I travelled to Boston with my friends Jody and Paula Clapp for a day at the Museum Of Fine Arts Boston.
The museum is a great place to spend a day in the heart of the city.
This weekend my daughter and I attended the Mass State Chili cook off in Winchendon.
About twenty vendors turned out this year for people to sample and vote on the state’s best chili. Amanda and I agreed that the Firehouse chili was the best.
After sampling copious amounts of chili Amanda and I stopped by a few of the vendors booths for a look-see.
August is the time to come to New England for the local fairs! It’s a throw back to the early nineteen hundreds when towns came together to celebrate each other.
