In the Good Old Summertime

It's too hot to bake, but that doesn't stop the creativity of my family, and the birthday celebrations.

All of us were enamored with this adorable Little Debbie birthday cake whipped up by my South Alabama sister-in-law!

My dear hubby was the chef for the day frying fish, hush puppies, squash, zuchinni, and dill pickles for us all. It was soo good. We all brought sides and celebrated another slew of birthdays.

There was lots of baby love going on. I'm so happy that my grandkids are getting to enjoy their great-grandparents! Not only are they great they are also great, if you know what I mean.

There was also a little water ballet preformed with tutu and all!

A little game of ball started up from the sidelines.
(The ball was already in the water when I took this shot.)

So many cousins to play with,

precious little monkeys hanging around...

siblings to comfort when feelings got hurt,

life jackets to hold up the little ones when all of our larger arms got tired,
and plenty of water to cool everyone down.

Believe it or not at the end of this particular day we all got a little too cool after the sun went down.

Another day filled with things to add to my gratitude list. Every memory being made is another gem to add to the string already so full. What beautiful treasures God has entrusted to me. There are days I feel bad, and times when I get down like every one else, but then there are days like today when I am surrounded by the happy faces of my family and I feel like the richest girl in the world.
