Lake Weekend

We had a great time this weekend with some of our community group.  The Jewell's invited us to come to Greer's Ferry for the weekend, and we decided to leave Asa with our in-laws.  We needed it!  It was so relaxing and some much needed "adult" time and conversation with some of our best friends. 

The girls: Chelsea, Kara, Amanda, Amy B., Me, and Amy H.

Matt, Kara, Ellery, and Amy B.  We had so much fun just hanging out on the boat and swimming.

Me and the hubs

  We also did a little bit of cliff jumping...  only the boys were brave enough to this one.(Joseph was the one in this picture)

We all had an "Instagram 101" class and everyone (including me) spent the next hour on their phones downloading and updating instagram.  I'm getting addicted!

We had such a good time!  I'm thankful to have such an awesome group of friends!

After the lake, we drove to Little Rock to be with my family and Joseph's family for Father's Day.  I am blessed to have such a wonderful dad, father in law, and a husband who is such a good daddy to Asa. Happy Father's Day Joseph!

Goodbye Brewer's

 I don't know if I have said enough how much I LOVE our community group.  They are our best friends and I don't know what I would do without them!  All that to say, it is with much sadness that we have to wish Amanda and Blake Brewer goodbye from our group.  They are moving to Springfield for their ministry with STUMO.  So, we are thrilled for their new adventure, but will miss them so much.  We had a big cookout/going away party for them wednesday night, and will also get to see them all weekend at the lake.

 Asa tried to play ball with the big guys outside.  Maybe one day he will actually be part of it!

 These little cuties were having fun playing outside! (Ellery belongs to my friend Kara)

 Community Group girls (minus Jordan who was at home with her brand new baby girl, Sadie! And Hallie came a little later too)
Beautiful Amanda!  She is our fashion Icon in the group!
We love you guys!

Sea Grove Beach- Part 2

It's taken me forever to get my other pictures up here...but I finally did! These are a continuation from my last post about our trip to Florida.

Cousin Bennett, leaning down to check on Asa.  Asa looooved his char.  He would sit and watch the waves while enjoying a snack.  :)
Miss Lilly Anne.  She kept those sunglasses on all day! 

"CoCo" and "Pop" with Asa

Poor paci rash from the sand, salt, and sun. : (

(Asa's) Cousin Bennett....Lots of energy and sweet as can be!  They are closest in age, but because Bennett has two older brothers he seems so much older than Asa since he is always off playing with them.  But, its so fun when they do play together. I hope they are all best friends.

Our last night in Seagrove Beach we ate at Cafe Thirty A.  Probably the best meal I have ever purchased. Amazing.

Asa having his first sucker....  and what did he do?!?!

.....he ran his little heart out!  Soooo much energy that night.

My Family

Yes, he is missing a shoe.   What's new?!
