I'm sure everyone was about to give up on me! I really haven't had anything very interesting to share. I haven't been crafting or decorating or anything like that. My days lately have been more in the mode of school planning for our homeschooling year and going through books to sell and books to order.
But just this evening, Joy and I were looking through some older pictures and I thought I might take some days here and there to share some memories of past summers. This particular day was a very hot day in July of 2003. We used to have a little weekend spot that we leased and left our RV. Anytime we had a chance, we would pack up and head there for a lazy, relaxing weekend and slow down the pace. That lasted until Colt got older and learned to drive, and got a job, and didn't want to leave home on the weekend. (Sigh)! But we had some good times there.....lots of family memories made there! I can almost smell the bacon, eggs, and coffee now! My mom and dad and aunt and uncle had places there and we ate together, played cards together, sat out in lawn chairs and just enjoyed simpler times!
I love these pictures because I remember Colt and Joy having so much fun in that little wading pool. Joy wanted to be just as "cool" as her big brother. She loved every minute of him being in that pool with her. Notice the hairbow! Poor little girl even had to swim in a hairbow....it's the truth! She had matching hairbows for every swimsuit!
Joy was trying hard to get her arms posed just like Colt.
You can see how high the river was that year in the background back behind them.
I hope you're all having a great summer and making lots of family memories!
