Several Things....

June has been a full month of fun, friends & family! I still have our family beach trip to share as well as Father's Day picts....will do soon. This past weekend was Blaire's wedding....which was wonderful...lots and lots of picts to share from that.
My dear friend Ashleigh Huggins is expecting baby Jackson at the end of July! We recently hosted a baby shower for her. We are so excited for she and Joel and can't wait to meet their lil' man!

 Last week we were able to enjoy an evening of quality time with the Tate's! They came over to my parents for dinner and riding horses! Elena and Olivia did great! After riding we finished off the evening with homemade strawberry ice cream.  As dear friends and family we ask that you check out their blog http://timewiththetates.blogspot.com/ and add this precious family to your prayer list.

One more pict to squeeze in this post.....I was able to get together with 4 of my dear friends from high school to celebrate 3 of them having babies! Anna is due with #2, baby Matthew in Aug.  Leslie is due with her 2nd lil' girl in Sept. and Drew was in labor as we were at dinner...she had her third baby girl that night! It was a great night filled with laughter and appreciation for the special friendship we have!

Laura & Jason's Wedding

Laura & Jason got married on June 9th at the Stanley House in Marietta. It was a beautiful outdoor wedding! We have been family friends with the Payne family for as long as I can remember. We had just gotten back from the beach about 3 hrs prior, but were so glad to be there to celebrate Laura & Jason's special day!

A couple of weeks ago we celebrated Mom's retirement and 60th birthday! (Even though her birthday is not until July 17th.....we wanted to have the party while Carly was in town).  We had a great time celebrating this exciting time in Mom's life with family and friends! We are so excited for her and know she will looooooove being retired, but we all know she'll find plenty to do!
I wasn't able to get picts of everyone that was there so my apologies if you're not seen below, but we thank you all for coming and celebrating mom! Enjoy picts from her party!
