Patriotic Picnic

Every year our small town holds a Patriotic concert on the square. It is such a wonderful evening sharing a picnic with friends while listening to a local orchestra play patriotic songs. I just love our small town!!!!

Camp 2012

E is going "away" to camp this week. It is actually only 5 minutes from our house! Our small town church is participating in a camp that connects other church youth groups together through large city wide ministries throughout the day and collective worship each night. This is her first year participating and she could not be more excited.

I will share more pictures when she returns later in the week!

The Suprise Party

Last night, we were able to pull off a surprise party for E's 13th birthday!

A few of her friends came over and popped up from behind the island when she walked in the door. She was genuinely surprised!!!! Love her facial expression :)

Group shot of the girls.

Of course you get the camera out and they want to have some fun this one!

What a great group of girls! I am so thankful that the Lord has blessed E with such sweet friends this year!

The Summer Camp Play

Some of our friends were in a play on the final day of summer camp at a local theater company. We went to see them and I am so glad that we did! 

The play was so cute and very cleverly written.

Both of our friends, did an outstanding job!

We met the nicest man at our small town's Blueberry Festival on Saturday. He graciously said we could go a pick as many blueberries as we would like from his bushes because he had gotten all he wanted. We jumped at the opportunity and went together as a family to pick us some blueberries!

There were so many left on the bushes, it was amazing! We picked a five gallon bucket full plus a small basket that we shared with some friends.

The berries were perfect so sweet and delicious.

We frozen 4 gallon size bags and about 17 or so quart size bags. What a blessing it was for us to be able to put up so many bags to use through out the year!
