Anniversary Party

We celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary this year! I can hardly believe it has been 10 years! It seems like just yesterday. God has blessed us so much in the last 10 years- 6 beautiful children and lots of wonderful family and friends. We decided to celebrate our anniversary by inviting some of those wonderful people over for a Mongolian bbq :) It was a great time of visiting and lots of water fun for the kids. We borrowed a big slide that hooked up to the hose- lots of splashing and laughing.

On a different note, our garden has been fruitful so far this year- LOTS of green beans, some peppers, snap peas, broccoli, and cabbage. The tomatoes are starting to ripen; I think I'll be making some tomato sauce today. I love to eat fresh food from the garden!! We were also able to pick and freeze strawberries and blueberries. The frozen blueberries are a great snack for hot days or great in a yogurt smoothie - mmmmm. I better get out to pick those tomatoes before it gets any warmer- it's supposed to be a HOT HOT HOT day!

4th of July

Happy 4th of July!! We enjoyed a great day- worship with the saints, time with family at Mom and Dad McFaddens, cake and presents for our firecracker boy, Isaac, who turned 4 on the 4th, and fireworks with friends at a friend's house. Our girls are away at Camp Grammy BB- a time of fun with cousins and Grammy and Poppy Barcheski. They are having a great time!!! We selfishly look forward to their return in a few days :) We all traveled out to Colorado in the RV a week and a half ago. We had a wonderful time. I really enjoyed visiting with my family and catching up with all of life's happenings. We got to be there for my brother-in-law's deployment party- Kyle is in the Marines and is married to Mary Jo and will be leaving on July 7th. Please pray for him as he is away for 6 months.
