The Other Day at the Lake


Recently we were able to snag some summer warmth and family fun by heading to a nearby lake for a day. The day was beautiful and we made some great memories.




Brothers Forever...Graham is Isaiah's Hero....
Chips and Dip!! Josh Came with Us.....We think He must Just really Enjoy Hanging Around Dw & I....It Couldn't Possibly Be that He is Enjoying Our Just-Turned-16-Year-Old-Who-Can-Now-Date, Could it??Our Beautiful Liberty Anna....Such a sweet spiritOur Tree-HuggerDown to the Water to PlayThis is CRAZY!! I've never Been to a Lake Before....What Exactly Are We Supposed to Do With All This Water???OHHHHH! Chucks Off, Shorts Off, Feet In....Splashing......Throwing Rocks....Now Shirt's Off Too... Feed the Duck Going By...
Find a Rock of My Own,...Throw It in..... Whooooa! That's so Weird - It Splashed!!
And the Mud feels All Squishy-Like.....

***********************************

Not to fret, I haven't forgot that we have to announce our Memorial Box giveaway winners. I grin thinking about it.....oh yeah, not to worry. But for the moment, Emma is still very sick and we have a few friends arriving in a few minutes to join us for a

Casts-Off party!!

....complete with treasure hunt and Spiderman accessories. Isaiah can hardly stand it, he is so tickled.

I will be sharing my heart soon about some other things too....it's all rumbling around in my noggin....and it needs a-comin' out....... =) xo

19 Simply Sweet Words:

  1. Sweet Linny,
    You always lift my spirits!! I've been so busy since our mission trip to South Africa, then returning to work, but two of my BIG kids left for college this week, and my heart aches. Please whisper a prayer,
    Robbie

  15. Enjoyed checking out your blog finally. You had commented on a post I wrote on Laced with Grace about being ordinary.

    Anyway, you've got quite a story. I pray God continues to use you and your family to shine brightly for HIM.

    God bless you.

    Loved these pics.
