WOO HOO! I accomplished both! So here's the informal photo...
It was summer, it was hot, the guys didn't want to dress up or be matchy-matchy ( They were afraid we would look like we belonged on the "Awkward Family Photo" website ), and we had a very short time frame in which grandson Charlie would sit still so we settled for simple jeans on the bottom and white tops. Whew! Got that done!
For our mini get-away we went to a nearby lake (where my family had a cabin while I was growing up) and stayed at a beautiful condo overlooking the lake.
We went sailing, fishing, swimming, antiquing, shopping, played board games, dined at local eateries and enjoyed the gorgeous lakeside views!
But the BEST thing that happened while the kids were home was that Jon, our son-in-law, had the opportunity to baptize our granddaughter, Ashley, in the lakeside Baptism put on by our church. That special event was INTENTIONALLY planned by THEM.
Many family memories and milestones were made in a short period of time because we planned INTENTIONALLY to make things happen!
THANKS FOR STOPPING BY!
