And so it begins....

We are off and running , wide open into our summer..... We were supposed to go to Collide Fest this weekend, but alas, it has been postponed until next June because of all of the rain we have had. Which works out great because we are due to go to Mi. next Thursday for a little over a week. We were planning on going to St.Louis & have the in laws meet us there to go to Six Flag and stay @ Yogi bear campground where Chris and I had rented a cabin for 4 days and my inlaws were due to camp in their trailer but w/ Tracey finding out shes having twins, naturally, shes not been feeling her best & may not be up for all of that. Chris's granparents have a house on the lake near where my in laws live, that my girls dearly love to go and hang out @ during the summer. The whole family of 4 generations get together. They have boats and jet ski's, and a swim spot where the girls literally swim their little heine's off. My B.I.L. has a fun jet that he is working on for them to ride while we are there too, lots of fun to be had in Michigan.We really try to do those things w/ them because in a minute they will be gone. I want them to have wonderful memories of our family together, I didn't have that, except for the times I spent w/ my grandparents on the ranch. We would camp all summer long on the lake w/ a bunch of their friends, all in motor homes, I practically grew up on the water. If it wernt for them, I wouldn't have had any memories like that. I am very thankful!!
Because Collide was postponed we wanted to then just go up to Branson for the weekend, but the girls said they would rather just kick around here, go to Big Splash and do some other fun stuff that we have been talking about doing, then my brother and his wife Kari w/ their 4 precious babies are due to arrive here on Monday for a few days of relaxation, sun & naturally swimming in the pool!! (I have worked very hard to get it ready) We are all excited to see them, Peyton can talk of little else. Ok, enough for now, I hope you all are having fun making summer plans too, & I shall see you here next time!!! Till then, God Bless & don't forget the sunscreen!! Leah
