All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. – Anonymous 1659

It’s easy to tackle the todo list for me. I have to be purposeful about play. That’s how I am wired.

This past weekend, we were invited to attend a Christian camp in Scotts Valley at Redwood Glen.

We enjoyed fun, food and fellowship with three local churches: Pleasure Point, Hilltop and The Gathering.

Play is natural for children.  Here’s my daughter resting after skateboarding with her friend Heather.

Here’s my son playing basketball with some friends.  His favorite pastime.

We are blessed to work at Mount Hermon and Mission Springs where there are many activities to chose from. Here are some recent outings.

Also, I love the Santa Cruz mountains and ocean. There is so much natural beauty and fun things to do. Here are just a couple of things we enjoy.

There are so many fun things to do as a family, couple or individually.  Again, I need to be purposeful about play, because it’s easy for me to work at the office and then come home to chores, errands, homework help,  etc.

How about you? How do you enjoy recreation?

Blessings,  Rebecca

Fellowship

“Hey Becky, we are camping in Felton tonight and we’d love to see you.” This is the text I received Thursday afternoon from my Uncle Jim.

He and my Aunt Cookie are spontaneous retired folks from Montana. They parked their RV two miles from our place. They picked a fabulous time to travel through California as our weather has been high 70s, low 80s.

I called my brother who works about 75 miles away to come join us. We enjoyed sweet fellowship over a delicious meal catching up on our lives.

They packed up and headed to Vegas.  Then Arches, Bryce and Zion National parks before heading home.

On Saturday, we joined friends, Bill and Linda, on their porch enjoying good conversation and a mocha.

On Sunday, my brother, Greg, and his wife, Connie, joined my dad, Jim, and Step-Mom, Dinky, at Harry’s Hofbrau smorgasbord. As always,  Harry’s delivered a scrumptious home style meal.

We talked and ate for an hour or so. Then, we transferred to my parent’s home to continue visiting.

As the hours passed, we chatted and watched the Warriors beat the Nets, the Cardinal beat the 49ers and half the World Series with Red Sox against Dodgers.

Afterwards, we headed back to our cabin to get ready for school and work the next day.

When we arrived home, our son , Austin, said, ” We’ve had a good weekend.”

“Yes, we did,” I said.

There’s something about fellowshipping with others that fills us up with joy and satisfaction.

How do you fellowship with others and how does it make you feel?
