John 21:3 - I go a fishing!
Just a little intimidating as they caught a shark the day before.  Not accustomed to such a "big" boat.  Yes, I caught fish, yes, I got soaked, yes, I loved every minute of it.  God is good!

Horseback Riding the Pichincha Volcano

This was a very special day.  My Dad loved to ride horses.  I love to ride horses.  My kids like to ride horses.  Lukas even asked if we could move up there!  Jeff took all four of our children horseback riding on the top of Mt Pinchincha.  It was a tremendous day for all of them full of much anticipation.  Jeff had learned of this special guide-led tour four years ago when we first visited Ecuador, and he has been planning this trip ever since. Bethany, Jordan, Amanda and Lukas all love to ride as do their parents. Four hours on horseback on one of the high peaks of the Andes Mountains. INCREDIBLE! The views of God's creation from an altitude of nearly 14,000 ft. They were dressed like caballeros (Cowboys) with sombreros and thick Andean ponchos for the mountain trails, and boy did we need them.  Memories were made!  If you get a chance to visit us, you now have 5 'brand new' tour guides to take you higher than you have ever been before!
