Kawasan Falls

A few weekends ago I was lucky enough to take some people from work to a place called Kawasan Falls. The drive was 3.5 hours and we were staying less than 24 hours. I wasn't sure it was going to be worth it.  Boy was I wrong. The house we stayed in was gorgeous, with a huge pool and it's own beachfront. Then, we went to the falls and all I could think the entire time was "I am so lucky! How do I get so lucky to see and experience places like this?"

My team enjoying the water and the view.

The Philippines is very Catholic and their religion is very important to them.  I thought this little alter was gorgeous and in such a beautiful setting.  There is nothing like the seeing amazing natural beauty that reminds me more of my Heavenly Father.  While walking next to the river on the way down from the falls the words to "How Great Thou Art" kept running through my mind. 

PM4 enjoying the "massage" of the 3rd level of falls.  This is a GREAT group.  We all have a blast together.  It was a nice change to be in cold, refreshing water too.

Ben (our team mascot) got to come on the excursion as well.  We are so lucky to be sharing these experiences.

The huge, gorgeous house that we stayed in (right on the beach too)

Oh my, can I come stay there and trade you for the snow cave my kids built yesterday? Please?

I cannot believe that CRAZY HUGE house you stayed in. Gorgeous. I'm a little jealous. I'm really glad you guys are having some good times though and making great memories. These will be fun adventures to tell your kids about someday.

Love the pctures. So glad you could go and have a little retreat with your team and "mascot." I hope these people know how lucky they are to have you. It may be a bit of a shock to go from the tropics to the arctic but we are excited to see you. Till then have fun in the sun!
