Summer Fun with Ava

The girls were delighted with a visit from Auntie Kara & Ava this week! From pillow fights, to forts, to the Children's Museum, to the sprinklers, a lot of fun was had!

Graham Family Summer Olympics

With the summer Olympics fast approaching, we turned the annual Graham Family Vacation weekend into a gold medal event!  
A torchlit grand march to begin the Opening Ceremonies.

Followed by the best family baseball game yet!  
Gold medals for all!  Such a cool Grandma :) Time to say goodnight to all of the spectators (aka great-grandparents).
After family photos Saturday morning, it was into the pool for everyone's favorite summer Olympic event!
Cy & Bryn (Kenz popping up behind them)
Piper & Brooklyn

Savannah, Hadley, & Kenzie
Even little Nolan was an Olympic swimmer/floater :)

After several kiddos happily tried tubing behind the boat, we had a nice leisurely dinner on the sand Saturday night.

Back to the house for a few more 'games'... tossing cheetohs onto your buddy's shaving cream head!  OY!
Back at the games Sunday morning with Grandma's marshmallow shooters!

Followed by the kid favorite... helping Grandpa clean the frogs from the pool!

Couldn't end the weekend without a little time spent in Grandma & Grandpa's spectacular garden!  I don't know about anyone else, but I can hardly wait for the Graham Fam Winter Olympics of 2018!

Paige & Luke 07-09-2016

We were SO blessed to be a part of Paige & Luke's amazing wedding celebration this past weekend!  The setting was spectacular, the weather perfect, the love palpable, and the bride B.E.A.U.T.I.F.U.L. inside and out.  Congratulations Paige & Luke!
At the rehearsal Friday evening, the girls got to practice carrying their lanterns down the aisle.

Followed by a beautiful evening spent right in the Pearson's backyard (Brooke & Scott made that fun swinging firepit).

Outdoor photos with all of the flowergirls (Ella, Aubrey, & Ava in addition to our three girls).
Can you tell how tickled they were to be a part of Paige's big day?

Ran into Kennedy & Sydney on our way back to the wedding site.
And found time to get a hug from the gorgeous mother of the bride!

Anne & Sarah (along with a whole crew of helpers) turned the Iron Works building into a whole different world.  Honestly, it was dreamy in there.  And the perfect place for Paige to marry Luke :) 

Catching a quick hug before the ceremony.
Some love from Brooke, the maid of honor.

Very proud & happy Grandma & Grandpa A!
Some love from the aunts (minus Anne, who was putting the finishing touches on!).
How sweet they are!
Awaiting the reception with excitement!

Seriously enjoying the ice cream bar for dessert! 
Kyle's long time buddies - Jared & Jeff.  How on earth did they get so sweaty??

From dancing like this!
Hadley let her hair down and was a dancing machine too!
Lucky guy to dance with the bride!
Bryndel (and Piper) did a little dancing too, but got pretty wiped out by 11:00!  Auntie Kara still managed to get a few smiles :)
We finished out our weekend with a little time spent down on Lake Superior.  It was such a wonderful weekend.  We love you, little newlyweds, and can't wait to see what God has in store for you!
