ESELY/EDWARDS/DURNIN Lake Trip 2008
WHAT A GREAT TIME!!
We had such a great time! I am so thankful that we all can have a great vacation together. Bryce's parents came along this time too, and they were so much fun! I have to tell you that Tom can GRILL!! HOLY COW MONKEYS...we had ribs, steaks, hamburgers, brats....oh my....can I just say HEAVEN? :)
Mom was in the kitchen each morning bright and early fixing us breakfast. I felt a little like a pampered little girl! :)
Tom and Barb celebrated their 40th wedding anniversary on August 2nd along with Richard's 40th Birthday!!
I cannot believe my man is 40. F-O-R-T-Y...wowzer. :~)
Kensey Rae learned how to water ski and of course LOVES it! Cody got up as well! WE just had a great weekend of relaxing and that is ALWAYS a good thing!
Good question! I am a woman who is married to my high school sweetheart. Richard and I are working on 19 years of marriage and have two great kids- Cody and Kensey Rae. They are surely a reminder that God's blessings flow from heaven above! I am a woman who desires to have it all together, but rarely does. I love to spend time with family and friends and find that my favorite memories are those that are just simple days of being together. Over the last year I have discovered that maybe God is in more control than I am- who would have thought? I have also discovered that apparently I am becoming my mother, and that I tend to lose my sunglasses that are on my head and the keys that I am carrying around in my hand. Contentment is a good thing and something I needed to learn and simple isn't all that bad. I have a faithful Lord who has in my life--carried me, held me, walked with me, chased me down, comforted me, blessed me, disciplined me, forgiven me, gave me "the look", cried for me, cried with me, laughed with me, listened to me, taught me, fought for me, and loved me. Thank you Jesus, for just being you.
I am certain I didn't do a thing to deserve this blessed life, but I am so thankful I have it!
