This past weekend, our church had our own little mission trip. We didn't take a plane out of the country but stayed right here in West Des Moines! We split up into 4 different groups and accomplished so much in 4 days! 
Some of the activities our group did were: our service team projects, cleaning, handing out water and granola bars at Gray's Lake, Raccoon River outreach, and a car wash! The other groups did a lot of the same things but also a few other activities were added to their schedules. I believe the Lord is doing some work here on the West Side :) It was great to see how soft and receptive people were to God's love. 
Our days started between 8:30 and 10 with breakfast and worship and we headed home most nights in time to tuck Emma in to bed around 8-8:30. I came home with her for an hour or so for some down time, but the days were long but good. We're blessed to be part of such a gospel minded church. Here's a few pictures from the car wash. 

Pat stood in front of Hy-Vee for 4 hours

What a hard working crew!
Emma spent most of Mission Community (M:C) in her stroller. She's pretty comfortable in it as you can see from the pictures. These are from a day we went on a walk, but she loves being in her stroller and can sit in there for hours sometimes!

The cutest little booties!

Just chillin'

Working on more tummy time!

Intently checking out the elephant.

She loves looking at herself in the mirror!
