We Miss You Papa and Mimi!

 The girls love dressing up and coming up with shows for us- it's very entertaining!
 Maddie is an Uno shark- she wins almost every game!
 We drove to Great Country Farms for peach picking one day.
 The girls loved the Ninja Warrior course (pictured behind them). I think Maddie did it 4 times!

 Yum. We made a delicious dinner with the peaches that night. Here's the recipe. 

 We miss you both- thank you for being flexible with plans, being great travel pals, very generous, serving us by doing yard work and much more. You both are wonderful grandparents and we're thankful for the ways you show love to us! We miss you so much! Favorite memories from the girls...
Geneva: getting kisses
Savannah: swimming in the ocean with Papa

Ocean City

On the way back from NY, we stopped in Ocean City, NJ. My dad was able to preach at Kevin Obrien's Sunday evening service. It was so wonderful to re-connect with the Obrien's- it's been 15 years since we've seen them! My dad's brothers and sister also came to visit us from PA. It was a great reunion!

I guess we've been busy over the last 15 years- I've gotten married, and combined we've had 7 kids!
Night at Funland!

Thanks for taking us on the Ferris wheel, Papa! 

Yummy custard.
Uno games at 10pm- it's summer!
Here's my dad's brothers and sister.
The cousins

 Poor Neva got a stomach big, but was a real trooper- she eve napped on the beach!
    Sand castles with Mimi!
 Papa is so good to his girls!


We had a fabulous few days at the beach!

Word of Life Camp

We've just had a fun-filled road trip up to the Adirondacks and back with my parents. 
Our first stop was at my parents' friends house. We were able to visit for a bit with Uncle Kenny, Aunt Jennifer and Becca.
The Mills are such loving and hospitable people. My parent have been friends with them since before they were married. God sovereignly saved all of them. 
Once we left Yorktown Heights, we headed to Word of Life Camp at Schroon Lake. Here's the group (adults only here) that came from our church. It's so fun being at camp with solid teaching, great fellowship, and relaxing activities.
 Papa and Mimi were troopers!


 When it rained, we swam indoors!


 Mini golf champions

Little rafting trip

 Boce balls

A few went on a real rafting trip!
 We took a lunch cruise :)

The girls all got a turn at driving the boat!
Then it was rodeo time!

These girls were great travelers!
