We’re having a fabulous summer!!  Right after Ryan finished school we went to visit his family in St. Joseph, Michigan. 

We had a great time…


 Kilwin’s ice cream was definitely one of the highlights of our trip, mostly for Ryan (ok, ok, for me too…)  He’s holding up his fingers to show how many times we had been to Kilwin’s while we were in Michigan.  Just in case you were wondering, we went to Kilwin’s 9 out of the 10 days we were there.  But don’t worry.  We took a few walks.  And just in case you were wondering, Kilwin’s sells all sorts of other tasty treats, like orange, lemon, and limeade, fudge, chocolates, and caramel apples.  They’re all absolutely wonderful, just in case you were wondering.  We highly recommend Kilwin’s.


 Sunsets over Lake Michigan.  Breathtaking, serene, majestic, awe-inspiring…every time I saw one my heart leaped at the thought that such a beautiful God would allow silly little humans the chance to see just a tiny bit of His glory.


 Family.  So thankful for the time we were able to spend together!!  While we were there, we got to celebrate Ryan’s parents’ 40th anniversary, and had some family pictures taken on the beach.  We especially loved hanging out with our niece, Abigail.  She’s on the top  right of this collage.  Isn’t she a doll??  She was born 5 months before Avery, and when we were visiting last summer, she was still so tiny!  I love all the changes that take place in the first few years of life.  She has such a happy, spunky personality.  It was also super fun getting to see what Avery will be like in a few months.


Father’s Day!  My husband is such a wonderful Daddy to both of our kids…and I’ve especially loved watching him be such a super sweet Daddy to our little girl!!  She loves him so much already.

Someday, I want my garden to look a little like this…
