a couple more pics from our time at the delta on my parents’ boat. sean and my dad pulled each of the kids around on the surf board behind the dinghy for kicks. the kids had a blast!
this girl. so big little. wearing my heat and her brother’s trunks. i just adore her. and miss her a million.
after our time on the boat we headed up to my childhood home at bass lake. we were dropping gracie off at camp up there so we went up early to have some time on the lake. i had to capture a bit of the perfect morning light with lu.
we headed to the forks for breakfast, mmmmm. while breakfast was yummy, if you’re ever in bass lake, you have to go to the forks for a burger – the best! and no, the restaurant isn’t the little building on the dock. its at the other end, across the street. and it hasn’t changed a bit since i was a kid.
after breakfast we spent a few hours on the lake. si decided to try wake boarding again. no luck this time, but we’ll try again.
gracie got up right away! she did awesome, and it was such a great boost of confidence for her before heading off to camp, where they spend a lot of time on the lake.
i grew up going to yssc every summer. i love that gracie is carrying on the tradition, along with her 5 other cousins that are there with her.
silas is still enjoying his kiwi crate! i love that it is like the gift that keeps on giving – so many projects inside!
silas has also been doing skate camp all week. the 35 minute drive each way is definitely getting old, but he’s having so much fun and burning off a lot of energy. and by the end he’s exhausted. and stinky. reeeeeally stinky.
i have a sweet blog reader from australia who has been sending me magazines for a few years now – so sweet, right?! donna hay is such an amazing magazine!
fun fabric shopping for more scrappy bunting!
some days are hard. and long. and after being a single mom for 4 days in a row, i was losing it. i was trying to be nice, but not hard enough. i was tired of the whining and complaining and ungratefulness. it took everything in me to keep my mouth shut and just search my surroundings for something of beauty. thankfully, God always provides, and He has given me a new day, another chance tomorrow.
sean is home – yay! have a good weekend!
