Summer fun...





































Happy Monday!
Saturday, we hosted a graduation party for Sonny, my cousin's eldest child. He graduated from the 8th grade...Congratulations Sonny!! On Sunday, after church we decided today was a day for just the five of us...no phones, no teenage friends, no working on the house...NOTHING! We swam, cooked out, talked, laughed, etc... it was WONDERFUL!!! We are a family that eats dinner together every night, I work from home so I'm here with the kids, CJ is President of his own company with his office here in the house, granted he does work outside the house everyday but he is typically home no later than 4-5pm so we have plenty of time to be together. BUT it seems life is getting much busier as each year passes so it's hard for us at times to just be together without outside distractions and with CJ being self-employed his cell phone rings A LOT!!! Trevor is always with friends at our house or working so a lot of the time it's just the girls and me. I love it but I miss my guys!! So Sunday was a wonderful day to reconnect with limited interruptions... ;-) Here are some pictures from the weekend.
Have a great Monday!

I just love those days...nothing going on but time all together! It sure is hard to accomplish with a teen :) Glad you were able to grab him for this special day!
