Bryndel is 5!!

Hard to believe our baby is 5! She had a great day celebrating! A 10 mile family bike ride (5 miles out and 5 miles back, in her honor), lunch date with Daddy, ice cream with her sisters, and lots of outdoor backyard fun with the family. Happy Birthday, sweet Bryndel!

We finished the weekend with a family bike ride and round of golf!

Sweet 16

We celebrated out 16th anniversary yesterday, and was it ever sweet! It has likely been the most difficult year of our marriage, but God has seen us through the grief and covered us in His amazing grace. We continue to feel blessed to have each other, and can't wait for the next sweet 16.

Happy 9th Birthday, Piper!!!
Piper got some special love from Grandma today too! Followed by a lunch date with Kyle :)
And a birthday party with 4 close friends (& her sisters). New backyard badminton, slackline fun, pizza and a movie, and cake. Whew!

Graham Family Weekend

We have much to be thankful for. It has been more difficult this year to find the joy amongst the sorrow, but it IS there! We are going to keep grabbing on to it, and let God's joy fill up our hearts.  And while we were missing parts of our family this weekend, they never ever left our hearts. We will continue to pray for good health, happiness, and God's grace in the days and weeks to come.

We celebrated Piper & Bryndel's birthdays with a fabulous golf ball cake made by Grandma :)

Spent plenty of time in the pool and even played volleyball! The lake was a big hit as well!

We ended the weekend by planting a tree in Dad's honor. We planted a beautiful reddish crab apple right in his happy spot. Right where he'd be waving to you from his garden.

Split Weekend

We split up a bit last weekend; Piper, Bryndel & I went to the lake to hang with Grandma...
We did lots of reading on the porch,
Swimming of course,
Ice cream with Fancy Nancy, our first fire just Mom and me,
And even a round of golf!
And while we had a blast, Kyle & Hadley were on an adventure all of their own... a business trip to Las Vegas!

Gooseberry Falls

We spent a beautiful weekend up north with Kyle's family exploring Gooseberry Falls, boating, fishing, and visiting the cows. It was fun for everyone!

They were shocked at how cold Lake Superior felt!

Caught some great bass thanks to Uncle Kraig & Hayden.

We finished the weekend by visiting Uncle Frank's cows and messing up his haybales a bit :)
