Summer Fun

Wow! What a summer! It has just seemed to have flown by so fast. I can’t believe we are almost in to August and school is around the near corner!

My daughter and son in law got to come out here to California for a short visit from their home in Hawaii. It was so nice to see them and let them meet their one and only nephew! We had a big family 4th of July BBQ celebration with all of the extended family in attendance.

Then the 7 of us went to a local school to watch the fireworks! We went with blankets, chairs, strollers and dog and headed up the freeway to a town where they allow fireworks. My sister and her boyfriend and 2 of her kids met us up there. Also my nephew, his girlfriend and their little girl were able to watch the fireworks with us too. It was such a fun old-fashioned kind of thing to do and we really enjoyed it.

When Heather and Ryan were here we even managed to get our updated family portrait done. We were excited to have our picture done with both the kids and their spouses and also the addition of baby Connor. Chewbacca was able to be in the picture along with us so it was really the whole family!

It is so nice to be able to have everyone home at once even if it is only for a short visit!
