Loving Family Times

July 8, 2014

Below are the photos I’ve been wanting to add from my trip to Idaho to see my sister and her family and then the drive my parents and I took to Montana and Wyoming to stay a week in West Yellowstone. I will cherish this vacation for years, I’m sure. (The photos of our drive through Yellowstone National Park I posted on June 21, 27, & 28.)

Another special thing I was able to do, and this after I got home, was that my husband took me on a romantic two hour cruise barge the evening of July 4th; and from the middle of the lake we were able to see several groups of fireworks. It was a perfect –lovely and fun– evening.

I thank the Lord again for the joy, peace, safety, and other many blessings He keeps giving to our family.

with love,
