We got snow cones.
It was a busy, memory-making week!

Our girls' vacation was a blessing to us. Time to step away from routine. Time to soak up some summer activities. Time to spend together.
These days are a gift. Bekah is my last child at home, and you never know when life will change. I am grateful for now . . . for our relationship and for days spent together.
