Fun Filled Summer

A couple of weeks ago I had a full house!   Not with cards , but with people. With just the two of us at home now, it is usually quiet around here. lol   And last week it was anything but.!
Our daughter and family were here from SoCal. It was so much fun having them stay with us. It has been two years since they were here.
We have one daughter in the area and she hadn't seen here sister in a year. It was the longest they have ever been apart in their lives. At 37 and 34 they are still very, very close.

Thought I'd share a few pics from the fun week!

  The girls all decked out for the 4th.   The two older girls live in CA and the two yr. old lives in SC. Jonas got stuffed in with the girls this time. Hubby had them outside and he took this pic in the garage. Hence, the dirty walls. lol

My two sweet, beautiful girls.


 Me with my girls.
                          
Papa playing with the grands!

Grammy taking a turn at it.


Seems like we were always eating!

Kids just hanging out!


Even the big ones were having a good time!



All the fun is tiring!


Ready for church on Sunday.


The 4th celebration! I told you we were always eating. lol

Ending the day with fireworks downtown was a highlight for everyone!

Celebrating the big 5 for Jonas! Does anyone play Angry Birds on the phone or computer???
Jonas does!    That was the theme he wanted for his party.

He even had an Angry Bird T-shirt on!


Mom made an angry bird cake for him.


We used the timer on the camera to take this pic right before we took them to the airport!                           


It was a wonderful, busy, crazy week and we loved ever minute of it! So sorry it had to end!

How has your summer been so far?

The saddest thing about this is the parting. My 2 daughters and their families came to visit last month too and I know what you mean about eating especially having 2 daughters who are both pregnant, lol. I bet you miss the grandkids. I do!..Christine

Oh Rose, HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!! 41 years, how wonderful. Best wishes for many more great years ahead.

I just love this post of your family.
Your girls are beautiful and look just like you. The grands are darling kids and I love the great pics you captured in their visit. I am sure it was a blessed time and so hard to say goodbye.
The family pic is wonderful for having used the timer. So glad you enjoyed a great time together.

It looks like you had a wonderful time. I love the picture of you with your girls - you look like their sister! I love spending time with my girls and their families, but I'm always exhausted afterward. I'm glad you had such a great time together. Thanks for sharing the pictures!

Yes! Caden loves Angry Birds, plays it all the time! I'm going to send Ashleigh your blog so she can see the cake, etc. Where did you get the shirt?

Glad you had such a happy fun time together!
