Scenes from a Summer's Day ~ Aug 10th

A couple weeks ago, my sister Jennifer (who is #2 in our family, and only 14 months younger than I am) moved back to the area (at least part time). It will be so nice to have her back in the area.

She invited us over for a BBQ this past Sunday, and it was nice to have an opportunity to visit with my family.

Here are a few pictures from the day:

We had a great time, and look forward to the next get together! Thanks Jen!


  1. Wow. You guys are "the beautiful family"! Everyone is gorgeous!!!

    Uncle Brians sure are fun aren't they? We have one in our family. Looks like you guys had a blast.

  2. Aww! Thanks Matilda! You are too sweet!

    And yes, we LOVE Brian!! He makes a wonderful birthday party "drill sergeant" too!

  3. Your pictures and family are beautiful! I adore that picture of Chiquita!

  4. How fun is that?! I love that Jennifer is back for now. It must be so nice for your family to have her.

    Thanks for sharing all the pictures!

  5. I thought that you would enjoy seeing them Meg. We really should all try to get together sometime!

  6. This looks so fun! Isn't it great to come from a large family? There are always aunts and uncles, cousins and grandparents. Thanks for sharing pictures of your day!

  7. It sure is!!! I just LOVE having tons of siblings!

  8. Family is so much nicer as we get older and appreciate our sibs a little more, don't you think?

  9. Gosh, you kids are just gorgeous! All of ya!

  10. You have the most beautiful family! Wow, just stunning!

    For some reason, I thought I already commented on this one, sorry, my mind is no where to be found these days!!!! I meant to...Well, it's done!

  11. I know I don't know you, so I really hope this doesn't come across as sounding totally superficial, but, wow. Your family is stunning! So beautiful, and faith filled, too! You are blessed!

  12. Oh! Thank you Melissa! That was sweet. I have visited your blog before, and you have a darling family too. :)
