Summer Catch up pt. 1

Wow. I realized today that our last "family up-date" was at the end of May! My, how the time flies...and lots has gone on! :)  So....without further a do here is some of what we have been up to!

Piano recital
Fathers day camping
Strawberry season
Daddy & Momma date lunch
And grass mowing :)
This was the first piano recital for me ever...
it was a great experience!

 Due to LOTS of rain in the beginning of the season, the strawberries did not last long! Above:
a mornings work...COMPLETED! :)
(we pick for a local farmer, meaning all of his pre-picked orders!)

Should I jump?!?!

For camping...yep, we I forgot the camera! Oops! So, this is a pic from last year...but you still get the idea! *smile*

This was a special afternoon for Daddy & Momma! They went for a walk so...some of the younger siblings and I brainstormed and got to work prepping things...from the the the food it all came together so gorgeous and Dad & Mom had a lovely time!
Sweet tea, chicken salad & green salad made the perfect lunch! (oh yeah...and chips!)
Family zoo trip
Vacation Bible School
Matthew's birthday

The zoo is always a family highlight each year!
We love looking at all of the animals and learning *fun* facts about them together!
Mr. Rhino says "hi' to the camera! :)
Thank you to, Lizzy for taking all the pictures!
Lovely peacocks roam the area!

We also got to experience feeding goats! They were SO cute and friendly! Thanks Jodi :)

 And the giraffes among many other wonderful
animals that God created!
And for today that is all!
Stay tuned for....
