Random Photo Friday

We are cramming as much summer into these last few weeks of August as we can, my friends. We were blessed with beautiful weather last weekend while my mom was visiting, so we made the most of our time with her. This week has been rainy, so we are cozy inside, watching movies and drinking coffee...getting a taste of fall. But last weekend was all about summer fun!










Saturday evening after Mass, we went on the lake and had the most beautiful, peaceful ride.
My mom loved it!


Sunday afternoon, we headed out to the pool and enjoyed some fun and relaxation. 
This photo was taken prior to me beating Nicolas and Madison in a swimming race across the pool. 
How about that secret talent I have been keeping from you???
I didn't brag too much, and I was glad because the next day, when I could barely walk and was sitting with a heating pad on me all day, they didn't say a thing. : )

Flynn had an awesome time with my niece Nicole, who is her actually her godmother.
Nicole has three precious children of her own, but took time to take Flynn for an afternoon of fun, just the two of them! 

Have a wonderful August weekend, my friends!
Thanks for visiting!

  4. Love that you're having so much fun this summer. Swimming?! I'm the Mom who watches from the chair. The water is never warm enough for me to go in!

  5. Peaceful boat rides are hands down one of my favorite things. How wonderful you got in the pool and swam so well, sorry about the heat-pad consequences though. Have a fabulous weekend.

  6. Such wonderful times, Billie Jo! Congratulations on the swim win--that's quite an accomplishment. The lake is lovely with the beautiful wake behind the boat and the beautiful smiles of your darlings. You bought back memories of times on our boat. Have a happy weekend. ♥

  10. It looks like you are having a grand summer! Your mom and you look alike, both beautiful and I love the blue eyes. Well done on the swimming. That's much better than I could do. I've never gotten over my fear of water but I keep trying.

  11. That lake really does look peaceful! Isn't it funny how our minds tell us we can still do things (like race our kids across the pool) but our bodies make us pay later?! Hope you have a great weekend.

  15. What a lovely week. It looks like you made some wonderful memories with your family, which are priceless. I had to chuckle about the race. I have to say that it is amazing, as I could never win any sporting event, but I know if I would try, I would be in some ruff shape the next day! I love visiting your blog. Hugs to you. Juli
