As John enjoyes getting pictures with people he likes (as he says!), we introduced ourselves to Pastor Hutcherson and did get a picture with him :) After church, we met my Cousin Chaz and his wife Jana at their cute yellow house! They took us out for lunch and on a tour of Seattle. They knew all the best place to get great views of the city and so we got a lot of awesome pictures of the area. They even took us to see some unusual Seattle things - like a satue of Lenin and a giant concrete troll! We were able to go to their church, Mars Hill that night. Its a neat city church that seems to be active and effective at reaching many people in the city of Seattle, especially the young people. The church reminded me of New Attitude conferences and Sovereign Grace Church. They both have gospel centered music with more modern music and a focus on reaching out to others as well as to build up the church through thriving community groups. Both Jana and Chaz said they have grown a lot through their involvement in this growing church.
After church, we stopped for a night view of Seattle. While John took pictures, Chaz and I threw an awesome lighted frisbee. I'm not the greatest at throwing a frisbee, but I enjoyed it and loved the fact that it had lights!
After dropping Chaz and Jana back off at their house, John and I dropped off our rental car and once again found ourselves at the airport. We took off after midnight and after a couple of flights we were back in Ohio.
The honeymoon trip may be over, but we like to think that the honeymoon may never end :) We're enjoying married life and are so glad that God brought us together and protected throughout this trip. John did such a great job at planning the trip and including things that both of us enjoyed so much!
