4th of July...

This was our first year to spend 4th of July out at the Lake. It was a day full of friends, fun and fireworks!

The day started off with the annual 4th Of July Parade. In our little lake community, those who want to participate, decorate their golf cart in hopes of being named the winner for their efforts. There were several Christmas carts, lots of patriotic carts, unicorn carts, college carts... they were all so good. As the kids watched the parade pass by, they gathered candy that was thrown and enjoyed popsicles that were handed out.

From the parade, we headed over to the Lodge for some carnival games and snow cones. When we got so hot we couldn't stand it, we headed back to the house, where we spent the day swimming, jet skiing, playing ping pong and spending time with some pretty great friends. We ended the day sitting on blankets spread over the lawn with excited chatter, glow bracelets on wrists dancing about and 'oohhs and aahhs' as the night sky was splashed with the colors of America. It was a picture perfect day.

This year, we did a VBS day camp on a Saturday afternoon and ended with a bounce house and cookout for anyone who wanted to come. It was a fun day filled with games, slime making and Jesus!

Summer and Friends

Around here, Summer means spending as much time with friends as possible. If we have an empty day, we almost always try to fill it up with friends and fun. Our sunny days of no homework are very limited and I want each day to filled with smiles like these...

A Birthday Celebration...

A few weeks ago, we got together with Micah's sisters and his dad to celebrate Pop's birthday. We loaded up and headed to Ft Worth for dinner at B&B Butchers. What a great evening we had celebrating someone who is dear to us all!

Lake Days...

We spend a lot of time out at the lake on these hot summer days.

The lake has become a place of peaceful retreat. A place I can park on the back porch with music, a book, a cup of tea and watch the boys create their own afternoon adventures. Sometimes it's with friends, sometimes it's them together as brothers, sometimes it's them in their own little world, but regardless of who they are with, it is as if we are in our own little piece of heaven...

A Day of Golf...

Last week, we went up to the golf course where played a short round of golf. These days, golf just might be the boys favorite activity to participate in!
