A Plain Ol' Good Time

This weekend we had the tremendous opportunity to spend a little QT with our friends from life group. One of the couples has a family lake home about an hour away where we were able to boat, swim, tube, eat, chat, and relax. It was simply put: a really good time. I love these folks and enjoy the time that we spend together. It was also a rare occurrence: since there are 4 little ones in the mix, we put them all to bed and marveled at the fact that we could all sit out on the deck and have food, drink, and good conversation.

A few highlights...

Our hosts...the original Katie and David (and Frank)

What a trendy girl...Miss Emmaline's cover up matched her bathing suit

Adrienne enjoys the view

This guy had a baby and got his MBA in the same summer

This girl had a need for speed - on the boat she kept going, "Faster! Faster!"

Is it just me or does this kid look like her Dad?

They look innocent enough here, but you should see these 2 on water tubes

We all have our crutches

The "older girls" of the group

Our family pod...what a treat! Thanks everybody!

Ah! I love that last family photo. You should frame that one, for sure.

You think it's hard getting together with 4 should try doing it with 15! That's how many we have when everyone shows up for our home group. I love the family pic. And the new bathing suit looks great!

Hey Emily, I am so glad you had a good time. I was afraid that I would be a bit frazled hosting, but everyone was so helpful that I had a nice relaxing weekend too. It will be interesting to see how many kids are in the photo next year.
