Summer Vacation 2014

Last summer we had my niece come live with us for a while. We took a trip to one of our favorite camping places- Medina Lake

It was nice to have this time together before Jakob left for college.

His senior year had been so busy, we needed time to connect and relax

I am thankful for all the laughs, the trials and the family time of 2014

I am so amazed by all three of my children. They are so different from one another and I am thankful for their character, determination and loving hearts. Jakob did an amazing job in high school. 

We enjoyed the campground, San Antonio and the water park on this trip

MeKenzei was in heaven because of all the deer. The are super friendly and love to be fed.

This is an area where a lake used to be. With all our rain this summer, it is actually full of water again. it would be neat to go back and take a photo like this one to show the difference and impact drought has on an area.

It seems often my marriage is what takes a back burner in our very busy lives. Times like this remind me how much we need to try and plan dates and connect,

Zekaryah is my love bug. He loves hugs, he loves affection. He truly is so compassionate and caring. 

I can't help but thank our Heavenly Father for the ability to live in a beautiful state and enjoy so much that he has created.

Its super nice to see the kids connect with Paul too. He works three jobs to provide for us. I am so thankful for the father in him that wants so much to give them a good life.

Cant wait to be back and enjoy the deer again.
