when we found out that our Australian Visas were denied & that we'd be "stuck" in Lynden for another 4 or 5 months, we thought it would be wise to look for a place we could rent short-term. We loved being with our parents, but we were really looking forward to having a little more structure for the kids, one-on-one time with each other, & finally unpacking our suitcases (at least for a few months)!
Farmer's Day Parade & Dutch Heritage Festival in Lynden. We love Lynden & we love their parades. The boys were all smiles & giggles as they watched numerous marching bands, berry pickers, & what seemed like every single tractor in the county pass by on Front Street.
Acts 29 church plant when we move to Australia, so it was fun to check out a local Acts 29 church in Bellingham. Plus, Oikos Fellowship just happens to be down the street from one of the best burger joints around.
