It's July!

Wow, today is the first day of July. This year is flying by. Of course the older I get the quicker the years seem to go. I am looking forward to several events this month. The week of July 11th - 18th will be Salters' week at my sister and brother-in-law's condo at Orange Beach. The girls, kids and I will be there most all of the week and will be joined by the guys toward the end of the week. I cannot wait!! Any of you reading this know that I am a "beach" person and I LOVE watching my babies love it too. Macy, at almost 2, will be able to enjoy it more this year. Of course Skyler, Mylie and Will already love it and baby Wes will have to wait another year or so to learn to love it! I also LOVE being with all my girls, and sometimes it's good to just have them without their husbands. Do NOT get me wrong, I love my son-in-laws, all three of them, but I do enjoy just my girls sometimes. By the way, Father's Day weekend was all I was hoping it would be! We had an absolute wonderful weekend together. One of the highlights for me was all of us being in church together, hearing Bill sing Butterfly Kisses and then hearing Jason Meyer preach THE best Father's Day sermon I have ever heard. Back to the month at hand, a week after I get back for the condo with all the kids, I am going back for a long weekend with several of my cousins and my sister. We have gotten together for beach trips and one time a cruise for the last 4 or 5 years and it is wonderful. We have such a great time reminiscing about our childhood and all the fun we had and how blessed we all are to have had the grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins that we did and do have. I will come home on July 28 and then the first week of August brings celebrations! Bill and I will be married 35 years on August 3rd!! It seems impossible that is has been that long. I know that the young married couples in my life get so tired of hearing me say,"Enjoy every minute", "Enjoy your children!! Do not major on the minors" ,"Pay attention to your relationship with your spouse!" and so many other things that I have learned through the years. I guess I hope that at least some of it will sink in! It really does all go so very fast!! We celebrate Bill's birthday on August 5the and then on the 6th we leave for DESTIN!!! That is our week of vacation with our good friends the Crosby's and the Jackson's. We are so blessed to be able to go and do the things that we get to do with our family and friends. I never want to take any of it for granted! Guess that is about it for now. I am going to post a few pictures from our last family trip to the beach two years ago...Sarah was pg with Macy...hope you enjoy!
