A weekend with friends

I am a little late posting this. A few weeks ago, we headed over the mountains to spend the weekend with some friends. I dropped Eric and the boys off at the Lake to camp and fish. Then the girls, Gabe and I headed over to the house. We had a fabouls time exploring their property. It was cloudy, which gave me some great lighting for my pics. The guys came back with lots of Salmon. They smoked most of it. We found a huge dirt pile that the children spent several hours playing in. They made a dirt slide and slid and jumped all morning. Maryann was the first to try it head first. The dirt was so soft and forgiving, they were able to do some crazy stuff with no fear of getting hurt. We ended the weekend with a BBQ after the rodeo was over. We didn’t go to the Rodeo because we found out about it last minuet and didn’t buy tickets. But we loved seeing all the “real” Cowboys come over for some yummy food and celebration.

I really enjoyed seeing Gods creation everywhere I looked.

Maryann was my sidekick the whole weekend. We had lots of fun exploring.

Our friend had a track hoe and has fun moving big rocks around his place. So the boys were delighted watching him “play”.

    Beautiful pictures! Love the daisies and the water and trees are perfect. Looks like you’re having a great summer! Don’t the kiddos get so dirty this time of year? Makes me so happy for a wash machine and running water, thank you Lord!
