It's the stuff memories are made of.
The Young Family reunion... or union in some cases. I had never met some of these cousins and second cousins. Shauna and Erike opened up their lovely home and blessed us with their hospitality. What a pleasant time.
Our friends, the Winton's, were able to get us free tickets for the Grass Valley Bluegrass Festival. It was great to see them perform and receive a standing ovation. We know it won't be their last. They are so very talented and even though they were just added to Vision Forum's Behemoth, they are already #5!
Brian, the man who led Tom and I to faith also happens to be the bluegrass Chaplin and was preaching that morning. We had to get up at 4:30 am to get there in time to catch it, but we really wanted the girls to hear him preach. Faithful to the Word as always.
This ice cream stand, and it's owners, were so cute! You can't see them, but the lady serving had these little Popsicle earrings with one bite gone out of each. She was so cheery and sweet with the girls and even gave them a picture of her dog.
Her husband restored these old ice cream trucks and sewed the pink striped awnings attached to their carts. Pink vintage ice cream trucks. Too perfect for a family of all girls who happen to think ice cream is one of the four main food groups! I think I had sherbet in mind when we laid out our clothes. Thanks Buciaks for Hailey's cute ensemble. I love that little scarf!
I love these old trees. Aren't they fantastic? Amazing how some things really become their best with age and maturity. Celebrating our 18th year of marriage this month.
Playing horseshoes and having running races with our children. Working in the garden. Impromptu Popsicle breaks with next door cousins.
Summer memories... I know you are making precious ones of your own. God's richest blessings as you lead little hearts home!
