Great Adventures!

Recently we have had some great adventures together as a family. Here's some pictures for you to enjoy:)

We were graciously blessed to be able to have pictures taken by a friend of ours recently. 
She got some very nice pictures of Evan and Mom and I.                 
It was a beautiful day for photos.                                             
My favorite photo of my Mother that day

My favorite photo of Evan that day. 

Another beautiful photo of my mother. 
Some of me:) 

I actually really liked this one, even though it looks like I'm hugging a tree;)
Some great photos of Evan:)

Looking handsome!

Best Freinds:) 
Sometimes you just never know where Evan will appear:)                                    
I'm SO thankful for such a wonderful Mother:) 
 And just in case you thought we were serious all the time:)                               
Final pose of the day:)
Earlier this summer, we were blessed to be able to go sailing with some freinds. It was a beautiful day, and a great experience. 

Evan made himself right at home:) 
We saw a bald eagle very close up.
                         Evan was brave to stay on the front of the boat for most of the trip. 

The water was just calm enough to not make us seasick, and just rough enough to put a little wind in our sails. 
We stopped for dinner on a dock, and took the time to take some photos while we watched a sailboat race.
I Love the sky in this photo!

     One of my favorite photos ever of Dad and I.                                                 
Mom really enjoyed the sailboat:)
Siblings and best friends:)                                                                                          
                              Another great shot of Evan;)                                          
 Here's the boat from the side.                                              
Evan Taking a nap;)
Enjoying the boat:)
I think I could really enjoy being on a sailboat for a while:) 
We had a great time together. 
Evan felt right at home on the boat:)
Our friends that own the sailboat brought their dog along. I was amazed at how well she did with the waves.                                   
I just loved this photo of Evan. He looks SO classic. 
And I couldn't help but notice how much he looked like my Dad in this picture when he was younger.                                                   

A picture of a picture:) 

O.k. so if I had a sailboat, I'd have one like this!

Overall it was a very good day, and we all enjoyed sailing together. The Lord is SO good to give us so many ways to enjoy His marvelous creation!

"Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth. The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah." Psalm 46:10-11
