Family Activities

Our Florida kids have been in town since July 1st and we’ve been making the most of having them around by doing lots of fun things.

We’ve been fishing.

And we’ve been having special drinks. That there is a Shirley Temple, of course.

We’ve been showing off our special skills by turning cartwheels.

And doing tripod poses.

Some of us have limited success with these sorts of maneuvers. That’s okay, though, because these failures make us all laugh until it hurts.

There have been some very competitive horseshoe games. Hannah finally threw her first ringer and there was great excitement over it.

The fire pit has been put to good use. We’ve told scary stories and had s’mores and gotten a gazillion mosquito bites out there.

Mostly, though, we’ve just been hanging around and enjoying each other’s company. It’s only once a year that we have all 4 kids together and that makes it a pretty special time for all of us.

    I can’t believe how grown up Ambrynn is! Your fire pit looks great. Darn mosquitoes!

    What fun! It looks like uou were all enjoying yourselves and each other…perfect. Every time you show the fire pit, I get a case of the green-eyed monster.

    You have a nice looking family and it’s always lots of fun to have all the kids together back home (for a while), isn’t it. Enjoy the rest of the week!

    It all looks like fabulous fun, but… the only thing wrong with these pictures is that YOU’RE NOT IN THE PICTURES! Prop that camera up on somethin’, set the timer and get in there, girl. Or get yourself a cheap remote.

    My, how she’s grown… all of a sudden, Mack seems taller and all legs!!
