Father's Day Weekend -- Monday

In the wee hours of Monday morning, the rain came.
It rained steadily for a few hours. When it cleared out, all the kids were ready to play in the puddles. 
My kids were a little hesitant, but saw how much fun the McIntire kids were having, so they joined in!

They were a nasty muddy mess, but they had so much fun!
After baths and lunch, we headed home.
We had a wonderful camping weekend and are already looking forward to next year!

Father's Day Weekend -- Sunday

Happy Father's Day!!
I am so thankful that God chose this man to be my dad! He is the best!
 This man...I couldn't have chose a better man to marry and be the Father to my sweet girls! 
We all 3 are so lucky!!

Saturday, when all the non campers arrived, we ate lunch and then headed to the pool.
Before we could swim though, we took our annual cousin picture. 
Cousin C said next year he will be 18 and can refuse to be in the picture. We all laughed at him!

 Grable Selfie Stick picture! We got it on the first take! High 5 to us all!!
 Aunt Belle took the kids on a golf cart adventure that included picking lily pads!!
 It was a wonderful day spent with the family. 
The girls were asleep in, literally, less than 5 minutes!

Another WONDERFUL Father's Day in the books!!!

Father's Day Weekend -- Saturday

Father's Day weekend means it's time for our annual camping trip (for the campers in our family). 
Saturday morning, the cafe' at Thousand Trails, The Cackling Hen, was serving breakfast and Dad's ate free. We all headed up there.
The bike riders...
 ...and the golf cart riders.
 After we ate we played for awhile.

 This must be documented...Zoey ate a hot dog...and liked it!
We had a wonderful first day!

VBS 2017

VBS 2017 was a great week!
This years theme was Galactic Starveyors!
Zoey had been looking forward to VBS for a long time! She was even more excited when she found out it was more than just one day!!

 This years attempt at a cousin picture was a success!
He is the image of the invisible God, the first born over all creation. For everything was created by Him, in Heaven and on earth, the visible and the invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities - all things have been created through Him and for Him. Colossians 1:15-16

First Swim!

Today was the perfect summer day to head to our neighborhood pool for a swim.
We spent most of the time in the splash pad/wading pool. It's perfect and just enough water for both girls to enjoy! We had a wonderful time and are ready to spend the summer cooling off here at the pool!

Ham Orchards

On Monday we went to Ham Orchards.
We had never been before so we decided Memorial Day was the perfect day,
Apparently it's their busiest day of the year. It was packed, but we at least got to taste the yummy homemade peach ice was definitely worth fighting the crowd!

Labor Day Weekend

To start off the Memorial Day holiday weekend, we went camping for the night. Leigh Ann was in town so she came along with us.
 The sign of a good camping trip, two disgustingly dirty girls...

 ...and a husband behind the grill!

 Saturday night, Leigh Ann and I went out for a much needed girls night!!
