What a Weekend! [Part two]

Mmmm… how lovely it is to have such a sweet family. In-laws that get along with each other = a beautiful thing! I realized this especially this weekend… I need to NOT take that for granted.

Family – We love you! What a blessing it is to have you in our lives. Truly!!!!

We missed my sissy… Jonna… more of an update on her to come!

Here was our Sunday:


Celebrating Tyler’s Bday @ Steph’s home. It was a fun family party! Tyler is Laura’s Boyfriend…

tylerbday02 Laura & Livtylerbday26 So much fun! Tyler’s 21! (what a rhyme…)

In the eve the girls went and saw Letters to Juliet. It was really cute… SUPER girly! Glad the guys didn’t have to sit through that :) Steph, my sister-in-law posted a picture from our evening…

Monday! Memorial Day! What a fun time --- we had our families over…. grill-out, pool time & ice-cream sundaes!


Joshy was the grill man! We even had guests from Canada! Steph’s sister-in-law Julie is in this picture on the right :)


MemorialDay036 We all hung out by the pool to catch some rays and watch Aimee Swim… and Timmy!

THEN…MemorialDay067MemorialDay073  Ice Cream Sundae Time! Yummmmy!

Delicious way to end a lovely weekend. Josh and I crashed after the party and slept for like 3 hours… oopsie :) It was suppose to be a restful weekend though, right?

I wanted to give an update on my sister, Jonna! She is in Guatemala right now through Saturday. These pictures from our fun weekend are missing her…



She is SUCH a trooper. God has called her there to Antigua for a specific reason… if you haven’t heard… there has been a Volcano eruption and CRAZY tropical rain. Yes, just during the time my sister went there. Can you say – GOD? The Volcano hasn’t erupted in like 13 years…

She is soooo beautiful in her response to what is happening. I am so proud to be her sister. SERIOUSLY! God is teaching her about trust and what that looks like PRACTICALLY. I think I may have her do a guest post when she returns… yes, actually – I am going to have her do it!

Talk soon, friends!
