It's July already!

June was great!

Cheers to a fun-filled J-U-L-Y!


Last Wednesday night we (the kids and I) stayed overnight at the camper at the campground.

 And the next day the hubby came since it was the 4th of July and he was off work. 

It was a fun time! More than anything it's nice to be somewhere ALL together with family, hanging out without the busyness of your "normal" things to do at home. 

....Dishes to wash, areas to dust, laundry to fold, floors to sweep and clean, things to do, t.v. to watch, etc...

There is always something to do at home. 

So, to be camping or vacationing is nice to just forget about all that stuff that really isn't that important. 

Here are some fun photos of what we were up to for July 4th.

Swimming. Austin is quite the jumper. He absolutely loves jumping in the water. 


Troy wearing his sweet Mickey Mouse towel. It even sings! My sweet friend Crystal got it for Austin when he was 1 or 2 :) And we still have it and adore it!

Some of the men grillin some delish grub.

Austin with my wonderful parents & I.

 Austin and his crazy cute face with his Nanny.

Troy caught on to making smores and being sure to blow the marshmallow out.

I'm reminded of the Bible story of Mary & Martha from Luke 10:38-42 NIV

38 As Jesus and his disciples were on their way, he came to a village where a woman named Marthaopened her home to him. 39 She had a sister called Mary, who sat at the Lord’s feet listening to what he said. 40 But Martha was distracted by all the preparations that had to be made. She came to him and asked, “Lord, don’t you care that my sister has left me to do the work by myself? Tell her to help me!”
41 “Martha, Martha,” the Lord answered, “you are worried and upset about many things, 42 but few things are needed—or indeed only one.[a] Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her.”
As a Mom, there are 10  100 things on my mind at a time. That's how I feel sometimes. Are you with me on that? But, there comes a time when I need to stop worrying about so many things and chose the better thing to do. 

Spend time with my family & friends. 

Setting off lil fireworks. 

Troy's "Wassup" face. 

My men all together gazing at the fireworks.

Happy July to you!
