Let's Catch UP!

 Michael and I have been taking advantage of the beautiful weather here  in Virginia. We hopped on our bikes and road for about 12 miles on the C&O canal trail
 This a 184 mile trail.  I enjoy it because it is FLAT!  
The colors are quickly changing and falling.  We rode to the historic town of Harpers Ferry, WV.  
 The town is on the Potomac River.  It is rich in Civil War history.  We parked our bikes and walked over the bridge to grab some lunch.  

The trees were shining in fall glory.   
 Our next activity was our fall festival at church.  We had fun setting up the cake walk.  It was neat to watch the little kids win a cake.  You would have thought they won a million bucks.  Look at all that yumminess we gave away.  

 Matthew and Sarah K joined us at our church to help run the craft table.  I love their hats!  They are great with the kids.  I am excited to see how the Lord works in their lives as children's missionaries.

Finally we capped off the week with the Capital Caring Gala.   We got all dressed up and headed to the National Building Museum.

Michael is so handsome in his tuxedo!  We clean up pretty good.  It was a fantastic evening with friends.  
 I only had my camera phone to record the evening.  The hall was decked out with all the glitz and glamour you would expect of a gala .  This guy on the piano was impersonating Elton John. 
Here are couple more views of the venue.  It was very snazzy.  I loved that fountain right next to our table.  The table was decked out with a sequin tablecloth and pretty glassware.  The room glowed!  
Now we are bracing for Hurricane Sandy.  It looks like it is going to hit a bit north of us right now.  But we will feel all the wind and rain!  We have battened the hatches and will be praying for the others in her path. 

 Have a blessed day!
