Summer Days

I've gotten overwhelmed with the number of pictures I've hoped to share here. So before June becomes a rerun of last semester with few pictures or posts, here are a few of the fun from the last month.

A trip to the zoo

In 2009 as a direct answer to prayer I started keeping Lukas and Everett. Everett was still crawling and Lukas was Levi's age. For five years we've grown to love these boys as family. They are our buddies. The end of this month begins a new chapter for their family as they move to Texas so we've been thankful to have good time with them before they head out.

It's hard to believe we're already a month into our summer break with school getting out in May. The time has been filled with a lot of this...

Phil, our boss and friend, bought a pontoon boat a month ago that we've packed out on more than one occasion spending a whole lot of time at the lake.

Trying out one of the lake's many rope swings

The most recent lake trip we got to take my parents on. It was their first time on a pontoon and my dad's first experience riding a jet ski. We made it memorable by swamping the pontoon with too many people and having to all run to the back to save the nose-diving vessel. Mom was a trooper and Dad was even brave enough to keep riding after my crazy jet ski driving.

Mom and Dad are on the road back home this afternoon and with Levi napping it seemed like the perfect time to share pictures. Hope you enjoyed! 

Happy almost officially summer to you!
