Indian Springs

Last Wednesday we went over to Indian Springs for the afternoon!! It was so fun! We played in the rocks for a bit then ate lunch on the lawn under a beautiful shade tree! Then we went over to the beach. It was quite overcrowded though and filled with smoke, so while the kiddo's swam and I went over to a cute little pavilion in the woods and played cards;)
Ahhh, how peaceful it was! Unfortunately I only have pictures up till lunch, I guess after then I was either to lazy or to tired to take any more!!
Hope y'all enjoy 'em!!
The boys working on their sun tans;)

Water....(how original right? I guess I could say 'Beautiful water' or 'gushing water' or something more dreamy but I'm not feeling very creative right now!!)
Madek's going down the 'Slide'

While looking for a place to eat lunch us girlies stumbled across some very pretty flowers and bushes with a cute little bench in the midst! We got a few pictures but decided to come back later for a photo shoot when we'd put back on our normal clothes;) well, let's just say, never put off what can be done right now! We forgot later so these three photos will have to do;)

Dear Maud and the beautiful flower that we found out later we weren't supposed to pick;)

Some Smithy Ham shots

As the deer pants for streams of water, so my soul pants for you, O God. My soul thirsts for God, for the living God.

Dios te bendiga!!!


Birthday Boys

These past couple of weeks we've had 3 birthdays!!
Madisens was first! He turned 6!! Yuchi's was next and he turned 7!
And then last (but not least) Arman turned 12!!Since Madisen's and Yuchi's B-days were so close we celebrated theirs together! And we started a new Smithy tradition too!! Instead of cakes on b-days we'll have Pinatas!! How neat is that?! Well, I thought it was neat, at least it's different! The kiddo's had never seen one before and didn't know what to do with it! LOL! They were in for a happy surprise!Madi with our horsey pinata which she called 'Goofy' but the rest of us officially dubbed 'Lightning' ;)"I get to hit it?!!" Spin him round an round!

Bretski takin a turn! Gavido was so cute! He had his tongue stuck out the whole time he was trying to hit it!

Happy b-day boy!
