California Central Coast

Wow... in the middle of our 3rd week on the road full-time but it feels like we've been doing this for 3 months. 

Such an amazing adventure so far. We've had some good days and bad days, but all in all we are settling in to this new lifestyle just fine. 

Our first RV park turned out to be a great place to start. Plenty of room for the kids, really nice facilities, great heated pool that we had all to ourselves each time we used it, nice staff at the front desk that were very accommodating especially with all the mail we had delivered... It was all around a great place to stay. 

Here are a few pictures of our time in the surrounding areas...

During the 2nd weekend in Buellton, my mom & dad came up from Orange County to spend some time with us. Even though we were fighting colds all weekend we had a great time and our first night with houseguests went surprisingly well!

Update: Made our first official big move on Friday from Buellton to Pismo Beach. One of the biggest lessons from moving days is that they always take longer than you expect. This move was only a 45 minute drive away and by the time we were all set up again it was after 4pm! We enjoyed a nice quiet day today going to Church at Calvary Chapel Arroyo Grande, playing at the park with the kids, and getting some RV projects done while watching football.  

Thanks to everyone that has been praying for us and checking in via phone, email & Facebook. We really appreciate it!

Please pray that doors will be opened up to share Agape Bags with Churches over the next couple of months. We just placed our largest order today for 1,000 starter bags and are looking forward to getting them distributed! 

New pictures coming soon. By the way, the Schedule page is now populated with some future dates. If we're coming to your area please get in touch so we can visit! 

Love,
