July Has Been A Marathon Of Fun

Hello Folks!
I'm sitting here, catching my breath, after a fun-FILLED month of July.
We were blessed with lots of company, a family reunion, a special birthday, a wedding celebration, and bits of every day summer fun.

So here's a lil' recap of our adventures:
(you might want to go refill your coffee- LOTS of pictures)
 We started our month celebrating this cute couple.
My grandparents have been married 65 years.
It was an honor and a blessing to witness the renewal of their vows.
 What a beautiful example of commitment.

 It was so fun connecting with all my aunts, uncles and cousins.
I drove this go-cart as a kid.
 So neat to now watch my girls drive it and tow the littles.

The girls finished up their horse lessons.

 We're going to have to figure out a way 
to continue this dream for Clara.

Of course we squeezed in a few fun floats on the river.

 I absolutely LOVE being on the water-
especially surrounded with people I love.

 We were blessed by a visit from Josh's brother and family.

 Floats on the river, hiking, sliding down a mountain . . .
We packed in a lot of fun during their time here.
 We look forward to these visits so much.

This girl 
 celebrated her 9th birthday.
I tried to convince her to stay 8, but she wasn't going for it.

 I love birthdays.
Such a great opportunity to remind someone you love just how much you love them.

We finished up this month with a sweet visit from my parents.

Such a great month.

We have a few more weeks of a packed calendar and then a few weeks of slower days before school begins.

I love summer!


  1. What great memories you are creating for your girls! And, your Grandparents, that brought a big SMILE to my heart! Enjoy the rest of your summer before getting into "school mode." Happy weekend!

  2. What a wonderful and family filled month! Our summer is coming to an end and I am so sad.
    Have a wonderful weekend!

  3. Loved all of your photos and feel like I just shared your summer vacation moments! Colette
