Marc and Connie made it possible for a few of us to get together at Black Butte and it was so much fun! What a fantastic place for families, swimming, biking, hiking, walking, relaxing, fishing and more. I'd love to share all my favorite photos but it would take forever so here are a few. The top one is all my little helpers, we planned an anniversary party for their parents since they were all married within a month from each other. They were adorable and really kept the secret
It was amazing to me that Connie was willing to do this after just giving birth to Cameron but we tried hard to make it so she could rest a lot. Still she was on the move with us all the time.
The bike races were hilarious! Kellen and Caleb are pros and Justin, Joseph and Easton just learning but they took turns and helped each other.
AWH, here is a chance for me to brag about the skirt I made Carly for her birthday, I love it! It was so fun to make and doesn't she look adorable in it? It got me in the mood to do more sewing.
Erica wasn't sure about any of us and stuck pretty close to her mom but by the end of the week she had warmed up, she is just the cutest. She learned to crawl this week and is almost walking as well.
Baby Cameron never wanted for someone to hold and love him, we were lined up for that job.
These boys are so cute together, this is in the awesome loft room where they all had a bunk bed. We had to pay them to go to sleep each night!
Swimming happened every day with several pools to choose from.
Nature hike first thing in the morning.
Melanie and her family came to visit for a few days and we had such a fun time with them.
Feeding the ducks and fishing.
Joshie joined the ranks of the little boy cousins this year and he fits right in. As you can see August has been GREAT so far and I hope the rest of the month will be just as good. We are grateful that we finally got Summer weather and that the garden is finally doing well. Cucumbers, tomatoes, green peppers, onions, zucchini, potatoes all from the garden last night for dinner. YUM!
Have I mentioned how much we love having Jenni and Michael living here this Summer? Our time is coming to an end but I don't like to think about it yet.
