4th Of July

We celebrated our annual 4th of July
picnic on Sunday, the 3rd this year.
We had great weather and a great time!!

We had a Freedom Wall to remember all those
that have served for our country.  Those that
had loved ones in the Military painted a tribute in
remembrance of them.

Thanks to these wonderful women
for all their hard work!

The kids' favorite part of the day!

Bethany & Kids

Lloyd took his youth group to camp last week so
 Bethany decided to come home for a visit. 
Everyone finally got to meet Makayla. 
 We loved having them here!

Nathan & Carter love their Uncle John & Uncle Jeremy!
They always want to do everything they do. 
 Nathan disappeared at one point only to be
 found in the garage sitting on the boy's mower
pretending to mow like they do. :-)
Makayla fell asleep while Aunt Suzy
was playing the piano.
Nathan singing away while Grandma talks
on the phone and clips his toenails. :-)

Carter takes after his uncles. 
 He loves all sports and he will play all
day if you let him.  The boys were pretty
impressed with some of his moves.

Father's Day & Family

Yes!  We're finally updating our blog!  
It has been so busy and we have a ton of
pictures from over the last few months.
It's hard to know where to begin!
 Father's Day was back in June, but
we had a wonderful day and wanted to
record it on our online album. :-)
We are thankful for our dad and
all he does for us!  We love you!

Suzy did an excellent job with the grilling!
John helped out with his sarcastic remarks.

Beautiful Sisters! = )

We had a wonderful time visiting with family
 from Maryland, Kalamazoo, and St. Louis.
