We have had the best weekend. My son Joe has a bro and sis-in-law with a beautiful cabin in the mountains about 30 minutes away from us, and Joe called last week to see if our little family wanted to spend a few days up there. We jumped at the chance and spent Friday night and Saturday night there. It was beautiful and at least 10 degrees cooler up in that heavenly little haven. The cabin sits on 40 acres and is nestled into a little mountain valley, it is surrounded by trees and a beautiful green lawn that Joe's Bro-in-law keeps mowed and lovely. We loved being together as our family and spent time visiting and playing games. My family is truly the game playingest people on the planet. They also had a sports court and the kids loved being able to play ball and enjoy the coolness of the day. My little 2 year old grandson would wake up each morning saying cousins, cousins, and then he would name them all off. He couldn't wait to get up and play with them. What a blessing it was for us. The only thing that would have made it completely perfect was if Nic, Krista and Addie could have joined us. We can't thank Missy's sister and bro-in-law enough for sharing their little bit of heaven with us.

Love all the pics of your sweet good looking family! What a neat weekend! And a baptism, too! Family is the best thing on earth (well, maybe flowers, and then family--just kidding!)

Roxanne, you have a wonderfully blessed life and a beautiful eternal family. By the looks of it, you have done many things right for sure. And it's wonderful that Tae made the right choice to be baptized. She's beautiful. Like an angel.

My, how your family has grown since the PGM days. :) Now, this looks like FUN.
