Reunion at the Lake

We had our family reunion for Jeff's mom's side of the family this past weekend. We spent 2 nights at the lake with many of our Aunts, Uncles and cousins. Jeff and I took the boat and tube as well as all of our fishing gear. I loved watching the kids play with their cousins who they only get to see a couple of times a year. They all got along so well. I enjoyed playing with the kids as well as relaxing...reading and sitting out in the sun. The kids are at a wonderful age that allows Jeff and I to enjoy ourselves as well as spend time with them. They are still easily entertained, yet, I can walk away and leave them to play without me as well. My MIL has always told me that around the years of 7-12 were some of the funnest years for her with her boys. I now know what she was talking about. I would love to freeze time right now.

We hated to leave when we did, but had to get back for church and a Sunday School party on Sunday. We enjoyed the party so much. Everyone had their children there for swimming and outside fun followed by a fish fry. I enjoyed the fellowship with the other families so much. I'm so glad that we have changed churches. I feel more at home at this church than I have anywhere in a long time. It is good to feel like we are where we belong.

I know what you mean about churches, we recently started going to another one, and we love it! It makes a big difference in our lives.
