We got to escape for a weekend with friends
and it was dreamy.
I think I am most happy when I see my children enjoying the outdoors,
watching husbands and fathers interact and play with their kids
sharing time, thoughts and conversation with people I admire and love.
Some of my favorite highlights of this get-away:
"Go ring the bell and tell the kids it is time to come and eat."
It felt like the good ole days when I would listen for my mom's whistle
to gather us home.
Trying to find your cup in a sea of red--like solving a puzzle.
Everyone pitching in to feed the masses.
When Tom is game for picture taking (and pretending he is in a jail)...it puts a smile on my face.
Ike breaking in his new .22 rifle
Teenagers that are pleasant and fun to be around
Lots of game playing
Attempts at getting group photos
I love watching the next generation become good friends.
Denny and his constant smile and upbeat attitude about everything.
Both Denny and Nichole could not be better hosts.
