The blog has been quiet for a couple of days because our family has been traveling. On Thursday we spent most of the day traveling down to Charleston, South Carolina to visit Jennifer’s sister and her family. Of course we had to make a detour through Charlotte so I could check out the new Ikea store and eat lunch. We stayed at their house and enjoyed spending some great time with the family. After waking up Friday I was able to take my oldest son to the driving range to hit some golf balls, and then we all went to the beach. For a mountain boy like me, the ocean is a special place. I could get used to just walking down the beach, listening to my ipod and talking with God. And then we all went to eat at my brother-in-law’s new restaurant. He is the executive chef at Bambu, a new Asian bistro in Mount Pleasant. If you’re ever in the area, then you definitely want to check it out. It’s on Coleman Blvd, and the food was absolutely amazing. We had some great sushi and lobster won-tons for appetizers, and then I enjoyed some huge scallops. It’s upscale, but affordable, and my brother-in-law Chang loaded us up with some special food.
We traveled back to Galax on Saturday, bringing our niece and nephew with us to stay for a few days. You’ll have to listen to my sermon to hear the whole story about getting stuck in traffic and almost running out of gas, but we made it home in time for our Saturday night worship experience at Cornerstone.
Great fun, great memories, and great time with family. I’ve got lots to share on the blog over the next few days, so look for several posts about church and leadership.
