Friday night

To continue our celebrating the end of the school year, we went up to our cabin.  We had such a great time.  It was just a low-key overnighter, but we all enjoyed each other so much.  We had dinner, took a little hike, made a campfire, then slept in.  On our way home, we went fishing and Britton caught his first fish ever!!! It was so exciting. 
The highlights of the trip for me:
*Telling my kids the "Pea green soup" joke and "And so did the fat lady" joke and watching them laugh hysterically the most sincere laughs.  Seriously, I think Britton's laugh could change the world.
*Seeing everyone's excitement and utter joy when Britton caught his fish.  It made all the hours of waiting and waiting totally worth it. 
Jason commented to me later that the whole weekend was the most fun he has ever had with his family.  And I think we would all agree.  And we've had plenty of good times.  Even though it wasn't anything particularly special, we were just all content and happy to be together the entire time. 
 Family time is definitely what it's all about!

School's Out!

School's been out for over a week now and I am loving it!!!

First thing we did to celebrate was to play with Melanie and her kids.  They are here visiting from China for the summer.  It is always so good to see them.  We think of them as family.  Since this is the first time we have seen them in a really, really long time, Melanie and I just let the kids run wild outside, jumping off the tree onto the tramp and making a big mud hole.  They were so dirty, but they had tons of fun (except Ezra who is TERRIFIED of being dirty).  Melanie and I just got to sit and chat and catch up which is always my favorite thing to do.

What a great way to start out the summer!
