More Summertime Fun

We where blessed with one more Saturday together as a family yesterday - God is GREAT!! We decided to have over a couple of friends whom Paul hasn't been able to connect with to say his  "See you later's" too yet. It turned out to be a beautiful sunny hot Washington day on the lake for all of us to play! We all laid around at the lake soaking up the sun while the kids swam all day. It was so relaxing & the best time we had all had in awhile. Our one friend who is the "camp chef" made some amazing hamburgers for us to enjoy which Mike our other friend couldn't get enough !! I am pretty sure Mike ate at least a pound of hamburger patties all on his own! But that was what the day was made for- relaxing, over indulging, & laughter. Below are just a few snapshots of our day. They only capture a few moments of the fun we all shared. I am so thankful that Paul was able to have one more Saturday with his family & close friends to carry with him on his journey.I hope everyone continues to have a safe & fun Holiday weekend.

Last picture with a couple that has become like family over the past two years. They will have changed duty stations by the time Paul returns from his deployment. Who knew when we met them two years ago the friendship that would form. We will be sad to see them go, but look forward to "Seeing them later".

All the children except Jeremy swam out to the lake docks to goof off . They had so much fun we had to drag them out of the lake when it was time to end the day.

 Jeremy was busy flying his new kite most of the morning.

 Mike & Tricia the love birds out on the lake in our boat together.

It was an amazing day filled with all the laughter & joy.
