Summer Fun

My loooong overdue update. : ) We went to Camel Beach water park today and while I was uploading all of the pics I took, I found many more that never even left my camera! I am so behind with my pictures. So, first...these were from today. Our neighbor gave us FREE tickets to go here....how nice is that?!


These two gals are so perfect for one another. God sure had a plan when He made them forever sisters! Sophie has no fear and will try anything(not always a good thing!) and Ella is my cautious one....thinking everything out and sometimes timid. These girls balance one another out...perfectly!

"Hey, Mom....let me tell you how to drive this thing".

Loved this pic...I am guessing by looking at it, that Ba Ba thought he was being clever and had just bumped into us. I must have been saying "Hey, now"" and Sophie is obviously flabbergasted by her Daddy's actions. lol!

A few weeks ago, we had the privilege of spending the day with Malia and her family at Lake Tobias and then for some swimming fun at their house!

the song on my blog was put there a while back when I had every intention of putting some pics up from June's dance recital, but you know how that goes. Better late than never. This song was not one of the girls' dance songs, but another class danced to it and it became one of their favorites.

Ooooooh, I have SO missed seeing your girls!!! I loved looking at each and every one of these adorable pictures! And I have to tell you... I have tears in my eyes as I write this. It just blesses my heart to see Sophie filled with so much love and joy. Michelle, I can see it in her eyes. I know you have traveled a long road to get where you are today, but friend, God's plan was the perfect one, as it always is. You are such a special mother and friend!!!

And I agree, there's a plan for our families. And while we have been tested to our limits, we know it's to be. He knows best.
