Summer Highlights

Here's a quick view of our summer in pictures:

My wonderful grandparents came to visit in May. They helped us replace all the interior doors in our house! (And when I say "helped us," I mean that they did most of the work while we learned a lot.)

I got to help out with Southwood's VBS again this year...Pandamania!

We did lots of swimming, in our kiddie pool in the backyard and at community pools that our friends graciously invited us to. This picture just cracks me up.

The girls played "Princesses" a lot, too. Allie is learning to tolerate Caitlyn dressing her up.

We read lots of books and laughed a lot, too. These two sisters really love each other!

Allie's hair is long enough to put up in pigtails now. Pretty cute, right?

Will and I celebrated our 7th anniversary this year. We are so thankful for all the ways God has blessed us and our family.

We got to take a much-needed vacation to NYC while the girls stayed with my parents. We had a wonderful time - the highlights were seeing Wicked on Broadway and biking through Central Park.

We got to spend some time with the Creedle family to celebrate Great-Granddad's 90th birthday and Great Grandmom and Granddad's 60th wedding anniversary. Pretty special!

We also went to Lake Martin with the entire Spink family, but somehow I managed not to get any good pictures...

Summer 2011 was wonderful! The Lord has blessed us with wonderful friends and families, and we are thankful to have spent time with many of them in the last few months. We look forward to what the next year holds!
